DHS School Site Council
Role and Responsibility
The Dublin High School Site Council is composed of 12 members: 3 students, 3 parents, 5 staff members and 1 administrator. Each representatives serves a two-year term. Unless there is a holiday, the SSC meetings on the 4th Monday of each month from 3:45-4:45 in the Staff Room, H-3, which is adjacent to the Student Union.
Per California Education Code, the role of the School Site Council is to review the development and monitor the implementation of the Single Plan for Student Achievement ("SPSA"). SPSA goals are aligned with the DUSD Vision 2020 Strategic Plan and identified based on student achievement growth targets. They are assessed periodically and revised annually. Typically, there are 3 goals that focus on school-wide improvement: English/Literacy, Mathematics and College-Career Readiness. Emphasis is on monitoring the academic progress of all students, with particular attention to under-served students and those performing below expectations. The target is continuous improvement in each area.
In addition, the SSC is interested in the progress teachers are making in their course-alike Professional Learning Communities; for example, discussions on guaranteed viable curriculum, common formative assessments, instructional strategies, data analysis, closing the achievement gap and best practices vs. past practices.
The council is also interested in learning how teachers collaborate to "backwards map" from Smart Balanced assessments to common core and content standards. To this end, teachers are invited to share their experiences with brief presentation to the council.
