School Site Council, Parents Needed

Hello Lighthouse Families,

If you attended Back to School Night (which most of you did! Thank you!), you received an application for a spot on our School Site Council. We are looking for 3 parents to join two teachers, Veronica Fong (kindergarten) and Ashleigh Hankins (2nd grade), and myself on the School Site Council.

According to the California Department of Education, “The school site council annually reviews and updates the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) including proposed expenditure of funds allocated to the school through the Consolidated Application…The SSC 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.”

If you are interested in joining the School Site Council for the 2015-2016 school year, please complete the bottom of the form and return it to your child’s teacher by Tuesday, September 15, 2015. We will take those nominations and personal statements and share that information with all parents and give all parents an opportunity to vote for the person of their choice.

We are planning to meet every other month for about an hour, so there is not a lot of time that you would need to dedicate to the School Site Council.

Click on the link below to download the application, or come to the school office to get a copy.
