About SSC / SAC
School Site Council (SSC) and School Advisory Committee (SAC) Overview
The e3 governance model of inclusion, collaboration and transparency works to set forth a framework that is consistent with the e3 mission to serve students, California Education Code and the e3 Charter Petition. To that end, e3 has established a combined Student Site Council (SSC) and School Advisory Committee (SAC) which shall serve dual roles as required by the California Education Code and our Charter Petition. The role of the SSC | SAC and membership composition is set forth below.
School Site Council (SSC): The SSC is a decision-making group that provides oversight on matters dealing with federally and state-funded programs: Economic Impact Aid-State Compensatory Education, Economic Impact Aid-Limited English Proficient, Title I, Title I Parent Involvement and Quality Education Investment Act programs. School Site Councils provide oversight of the academic planning and budgeting process associated with the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) in order to meet the needs of all students. SSCs provide meaningful consultation with the principal to oversee the implementation, monitoring, and revision of the SPSA, including reviewing and analyzing data; consulting with advisory groups; evaluating programs and activities; and allocating the expenditure of funds available to the school through categorical programs.
School Advisory Committee (SAC): e3 recognizes that the education of students is a shared responsibility involving the school staff, students and their families, and members of our community. We value input from our stakeholders and are committed to encouraging partnerships to enhance the education of our students. The purpose of the e3 advisory committee is to serve in an advisory capacity to the Executive Director of e3 and to serve as a communication link between e3 the e3 Board of Directors. The SAC delegates have the opportunity to 1) promote school activities, 2) react to school programs and activities, 3) encourage and promote e3 unity through support programs and activities, and 4) serve as a feedback channel for student parent, school and community and 5) seek input from stakeholders.
