School Site Council

Mission San Jose High School has an active School Site Council (SSC) which oversees a variety of programs and services which are tied to our acceptance and use of state and federal funds benefiting students.  The formation and composition of a SSC is defined in California Education Code (EC) 52852 (School –based Coordination Programs).

“A School Site Council shall be established at each school which participates in school-based program coordination.  The council shall be composed of the principal and representatives of: teachers selected by teachers at the school; other school personnel selected by other school personnel at the school; parents of pupils attending the school selected by such parents; and, in secondary schools, pupils selected by pupils attending the school.” 


The School Site Council is required, under state law, to serve as the school community representative body for determining the focus of the school’s academic instructional program and all its related categorical resources.  The School Site Council has responsibility for these duties:

  • Analyze and evaluate the academic achievement of all students in the school
  • Obtain recommendations from school site advisory, standing and special committees regarding the focus of the School Plan for Student Achievement.
  • Develop and approve the school plan and all related proposed expenditures in accordance with all state and federal laws and regulations.
  • Recommend the school plan, including related budget expenditures, to the local governing board.
  • Provide ongoing monitoring of the implementation of the plan and budgets/expenditures.
  • Participate in all local, state and federal reviews of the school’s program for compliance and quality.
  • Carry out all other duties assigned to the council by the district governing board and by state or federal law.

School Site Council meets periodically throughout the school year. See BULLETINS
