School Site Council (SSC)
The SSC is a group of parents and staff who work together to enrich the curriculum and school environment of James Dougherty Elementary. This group develops the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) and recommends its approval to the School District. The SSC also manages the implementation of the SPSA and evaluates its effectiveness with input from the principal, staff, students, and parents. The council annually reviews the SPSA to assure its budget and direction reflects the changing needs and priorities of James Dougherty Elementary.
