• The John Green Elementary School Site Council

    Parent Help is Needed to Serve on our School Site Council - Please consider assisting us!
    โ— What is the School Site Council?
    The School Site Council is a group of teachers, parents and school staff that works with the principal to develop, review and monitor school improvement programs. The parent members of our School Site Council are elected by their peers to serve a two-year term. (If you are a parent of a fifth grade child, you may serve a one year term.)
    โ— What does the School Site do?
    Site Councils generally make decisions or advise the Principal and staff on the school’s improvement plan. In addition, our parents will learn about other aspects of our school community.
    โ— What would be the time/responsibility commitment?
    The best way to help your child with improving academic performance is to be involved. The John Green Elementary School Site Council meets from 3:00-4:00 pm approximately 7-8 times during the school year on a Thursday (you can attend as a member via a video conference call). Our meeting is open to all parents or community members, but only council members may vote.
    If you are interested in learning more about School Site Council or you would like to nominate/volunteer to serve, please contact Joyce Trotter at 925-833-4200 ext. 6601

    In the event we have more volunteers than needed, then an election would be held. Virtual Back to School Night - August 25, 2020

     School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)

    The School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) is meant to consolidate all school-level planning efforts into one plan for programs funded through the consolidated application (ConApp), pursuant to the California Education Code (EC) Section 64001 and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The purpose of the SPSA is to increase the overall effectiveness of the school program by crafting a strategic plan that maximizes the resources available to the school while minimizing duplication of effort with the ultimate goal of increasing student achievement. The School Site Council (SSC) is required to develop and annually review the SPSA, establish an annual budget, and make modifications in the plan to reflect changing needs and priorities, as applicable, pursuant to EC 52853(b) and 52855. California’s ESSA State Plan significantly shifts the state’s approach to the utilization of federal resources in support of underserved student groups. The SPSA provides schools with the opportunity to document their approach to maximizing the impact of federal investments in support of underserved students. The implementation of ESSA in California presents an opportunity for schools to innovate with their federally-funded programs and align them with the priority goals of the school and the LEA that are being realized under the state’s Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). LCFF provides schools and LEAs flexibility to design programs and provide services that meet the needs of students in order to achieve readiness for college, career, and lifelong learning. The SPSA planning process supports continuous cycles of action, reflection, and improvement.
