Dear Parents/Caregivers,

You are invited to attend the 2020-21 School Site Council Establishment Meeting,

Thursday, September 24, 2020 @ 5:15 pm. 

All are welcome to participate in the election process. 

 THIS IS A CALL FOR SELF NOMINATIONS: 

If interested please complete the 

RHS School Site Council (SSC) Nomination Form

People seeking nomination must demonstrate high levels of empathy and curiosity about different cultures and identities, be a great listener and  good problem solver  and be someone who wants to make a difference. 

School Site Council (SSC) is a mandated advisory body created by the federal government to support students who are most at risk. The SSC is a school-community representative body made up of the Principal, Teachers, Other School Personnel, Parents, Community Members and Students.  All schools that receive federal or state categorical funding are required to have a School Site Council to give input and help decide how to spend categorical funds. We are making an effort to recruit and engage parents from traditionally historically underserved populations identified in our School Site Council Bylaws and identified by the District and those targeted by LCFF legislation (OUSD LCAP Website ), specifically parents of…

  • Foster Youth
  • English Learners
  • Students with Disabilities
  • African American
  • Latino
  • those eligible for free and reduced lunch.

 

In light of the recent political tension and racism fueling the Black Lives Matter protest, Our Redwood Heights SSC  will be guided by  OUSD’s 20/21 Commitment….

We are committed to working relentlessly and unapologetically to become an anti-racist and equity-driven school system. This means that we center our decision-making, resources and instruction to address the needs and lift up the assets of our most marginalized students and families. We hold this stance as we open the 2020-21 school year.

OUSD Equity Goals:

  • Eliminate the correlation between social and cultural factors and probability of success
  • Examine biases, interrupt & eliminate inequitable practices, and create inclusive & just conditions for all students
  • Discover and cultivate the unique gifts, talents, and interests that every student possesses.

During our SSC Meetings we will review the

OUSD Racial Equity and Healing Task Force  Focus of Study:

  • Bias, Trauma & Relationships
  • Culturally Responsive Practices
  • Anti-racist Educator Practices
  • Equitable Family & Student Engagement
  • Healing Centered Restorative Justice
  • History & White Supremacy 

The School Site Council helps develop and approves the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), reviews specific goals and school improvements, monitors the implementation of the Single Plan and of student achievement,  assesses strategies currently in place, works with other school based Advisory groups, and encourages parent, family, and community involvement.  

All agendas and minutes are posted for public information and anyone who wishes to come to a council meeting is welcome.  

This SSC offers an excellent opportunity for parents, community members, and school staff and administration to work together and plan for the achievement of all students with a mandate to focus on our LCFF target populations. We encourage you to join us in electing your representatives to our Redwood Heights SSC.

In partnership,

Principal Bagby
