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. 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 2017 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 Monday of each month at 7:00pm and are open to the Ohlone community. We hope to see you at one or more of our meetings this year.
Running for Site Council
Site Council terms are two years long. Elections happen in April or May of each school year. Terms are staggered and each year we have between 3 and 4 openings. If you are interested in joining the Site Council, please email the chair. You are welcome to come to any meeting to find out what it is all about.
