School Site Council (SSC) / Title I

School Site Council (SSC)
Every school with a County District School (CDS) code assigned by the California Department of Education (CDE) shall establish a School Site Council (SSC) as the decision-making council for all programs funded through the Consolidated Application (ConApp). California Education Code 64001(a) requires districts receiving state, federal and other applicable funding through the ConApp process ensure that participating schools prepare a School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The SPSA is a blueprint to improve academic performance of all students to the level of the targeted performance goals of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the District's Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) Scorecard. Further, the SSC is responsible for developing, revising and adopting the comprehensive school safety plan and the SPSA with its proposed expenditure of all categorical funds. In addition, the SSC must ensure that a school meets all federal parental involvement mandates, specifically, the development and approval of the school-level Title I Parent and Family Engagement Policy, the Title I School-Parent Compact, and the Title I Parent and Family Engagement Budget.

Title I
"Title I is designed to help students served by the program to achieve proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards.
Title I schools with percentages of students from low-income families of at least 40 percent may use Title I funds, along with other Federal, State, and local funds, to operate a 'school-wide program' to upgrade the instructional program for the whole school."
