Principal Christensen informed SSC members of the background of its purpose. In the past, schools were allotted SIP funds and the SSC was involved in the direction of expenditures. The current finance system is the LCAP and the money is dictated by student demographics and population. The school is allocated money based upon LCAP guidelines and the SSC council can be an advisory group for how to best use the funds, but the SSC does not have to approve expenditures as in the past.
Review of 2016-2017 Single Plan for Student Achievement
These plans are published by each school and are available to the public and online. Principal Christensen had made the plan available to all SSC members to review prior to the meeting. Principal Christensen reviewed with the council at this time the 2016-2017 Single Plan for Student Achievement. It was discovered that the Single Plan for Student Achievement is not showing all student testing and CELDT data; Principal Christensen called Stacy Yogi to inquire as to why. Stacy Yogi stated she will look into it and get back to Principal Christensen, but that this issue has been reported by other schools.
A motion was made by Christina Sepe to approve the Single Plan for Student Achievement and it was seconded by Michael Calahan. The vote passed unanimously.
Andrea Tong voiced that Principal Christensen cannot be the Chairperson for SSC as it is a direct conflict of school interest. Principal Christensen checked with Stacy Yogi who confirmed that best practice would not be to have the Principal serve as Chair.
