School Site Council


Brief Description

The School Site Council is the forum where all the major contributors in the school come together to identify common goals and establish, on a yearly basis, the plan of action for achieving these goals. The SSC’s success depends upon both the ability and the willingness of all those involved in the process to work together, in a cooperative manner, to develop effective community, curricular, and instructional programs wherein all students may attain higher levels of academic competence.
