SFUSD School Site Council is an elected body representing parents, students, community members, and school staff in the school governance process.
The Grattan SSC meets monthly (third Monday of the month) and has a number of important responsibilities, including:
- Reviewing and analyzing student achievement data
- Gathering community input,
- Helping develop the Balanced Scorecard/Single Plan for Student Achievement (BSC/SPSA) and school site budget
- Monitoring the implementation of the plan and budget
The Grattan SSC brings diverse ideas to the table, and helps Grattan craft a shared plan for improvement. The most effective councils and committees are able to focus on the big picture, make a concerted effort to achieve authentic participation of staff and families, diagnose problems, develop innovative and effective solutions, and work collaboratively to monitor progress. Grattan SSC members don’t just represent their own interests; rather, they have an obligation to make decisions that will best serve the whole school community.
