School Site Council (SSC)
The School Site Council is a leadership team composed of the Principal, teachers, other school personnel and parents of students attending Newman Elementary School.
The primary responsibility of the School Site Council (SSC) is the development and monitoring of a School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). This plan becomes the instrument by which the school establishes a common agreement regarding educational strategies. The task of the SSC is to ensure that the school is continually engaged in identifying and implementing curriculum and instructional practices that result in both strengthening the core academic program and ensuring that students have access to and success in that program.
The SSC meets at least four times a year. The public is welcome to attend any School Site Council meeting.
