Parents and Community
School Site Council
The SSC is a group of parents, community members, and staff that come together to help govern the school and make decisions regarding school programs and budget allocations. The SSC is required for schools receiving state/federal categorical funds. These funds are used to supplement the regular school program. Arroyo Elementary School receives the following categorical funds: School Improvement Program, and Economic Impact Aid.
In order to accomplish our goal of supporting and enhancing programs at Arroyo, the SSC meets four times a year to assess the effectiveness of categorically funded supplemental programs by planning, developing, and approving the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The SSC also reviews and updates the categorical budgets. At Arroyo Elementary School, the SSC will meet in the teachers’ lounge approximately four times during the school year.
Members of the SSC include the principal, teachers, other staff, and parents/community members. Members of the School Site Council are elected by their peers; therefore, parents are elected by parents.
