Site Council

Every school that receives money from the State of California School-Based Coordinated Program is required to have an active Site Council. Our Ohlone Site Council includes faculty, staff, and parents. The parent members are elected from the school community, and the staff members represent and report back to their staff counterparts in each cluster (combined-grade group: K/1, 2/3, and 4/5).

The Site Council is responsible for overseeing implementation of the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), for reviewing and approving the school Safety Plan, and for making sure that the state funds are allocated appropriately and directly used in service of the children.  (View Ohlone’s 2012-2013 SPSA.) After the presentation of the SPSA to the Board of Education, the Site Council works to monitor the school’s measurable progress towards those goals.

In addition, the Site Council administers community surveys to Ohlone parents, staff members, and 4th and 5th grade students.  The results of these surveys are shared with the community and will help form the focus of Site Council and school efforts. (View results of the 2015 survey.)

Past projects of the Ohlone Site Council include previous iterations of the All School Climate survey, the e-mail policy, Mandarin Immersion policies, and extended hours for the Kinders.

Our meetings are open to the community, and we encourage you to join us.  We usually meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:30pm in the Staff Lounge or Flex Room (in the 4/5 building)  We hope to see you at one or more of our meetings this year.
