School Site Council

Elected members of the School Site Council will develop the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The purpose of the SPSA is to create a cycle of continuous improvement of student performance, and to ensure that all students succeed in reaching academic standards set by the State Board of Education.

School Site Council Members also implement and evaluate Muir’s programs and budgets.


Composition of the school site council is specified in the California Education Code as follows:

The school site council shall be composed of the principal and representatives of: teachers selected by teachers at the school; other school personnel selected by other school personnel at the school; parents of students attending the school selected by such parents; and, in secondary schools, students selected by students attending the school.

At the elementary level, the school site council shall be constituted to ensure parity between (a) the principal, classroom teachers, and other school personnel; and (b) parents or other community members selected by parents. In schools with fewer than three teachers, this requirement may be met by establishing a school site council that is composed of equal numbers of school staff and parents or other community members selected by parents.

Rules of Order

School site councils must operate according to the following rules:

  1. Meetings must be open to the public.
  2. The public may address the school site council on any item within jurisdiction of the school site council.
  3. Notice of the meeting must be posted at the school site or other accessible place at least 72 hours before the meeting.
  4. The notice must specify the date, time, and place of the meeting and the agenda.
  5. The school site council cannot act on an item not described on the posted agenda unless, by unanimous vote, it finds a need for action unknown when the agenda was posted.
  6. Questions and brief statements of no impact on students or employees that can be resolved by providing information need not be described on the posted agenda.
  7.  If these procedures are violated, upon demand of any person, the school site council must reconsider the item at its next meeting, after allowing for public input on the item.

Please contact your School Site Council Member Representative if you have any questions, comments, concerns, or agenda items for our next meeting.
