California Education Code (EC) Section 64001 requires that a Schoolsite Council (SSC) develop the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The schoolsite council must approve the plan, recommend it to the local governing board for approval, monitor its implementation, and evaluate the effectiveness of the planned activities at least annually.
Schoolsite Council Waiver
The California Education Code (EC) 52852 states that a schoolsite council shall be established at each school that participates in a school-based program coordination. In EC Section 52863 any governing board, on behalf of a school site council, may request the State Board of Education (SBE) to grant a waiver. The SBE may grant a request when it finds that the failure to do so would hinder the implementation or maintenance of a successful school-based coordinated program. If the SBE approves a waiver request, the waiver shall apply only to the school or schools which requested the waiver and shall be effective for no more than two years. The SBE may renew a waiver request every two years.
