SCHOOL SITE COUNCIL:
The School Site Council (SSC) is the body responsible for implementing the School Improvement Plan. Our Valentine Site Council is composed of four staff members, including our principal and four parents. Our PTA President and Treasurer serve as advisory members.
We have three subcommittees as part of our Site Council: Technology, Student Learning and Safety. Each subcommittee provides recommendations to our Site Council and assists in monitoring the goals on our School Improvement Plan that are related to the committee's area of focus.
Our Site Council will meet during the first month of school in the 2012-2013 school year. The calendar for Site Council Meetings will be established at our first meeting.
SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PLAN:
The School Improvement Plan (SIP) is our "road map" for school improvement. Our School Improvement Plan identifies goals and action steps for improvement based upon our CST STAR data, classroom assessment data, and other information we have gathered through surveys or other data collection systems. The ongoing implementation, monitoring and evaluation of this plan is one of the most important roles of the School Site Council.
Our School Improvement Plan (SIP) is approved each year by the San Marino School District Board of Education.
