Combined School Site Council and English Learners Advisory Committee
Parents and families are encouraged to get involved at Marin’s Community School in several ways. In addition to attending our family events, responding to calls, meeting with school staff, and supporting your student at home, we need parents to serve on two committees to support our school program to best serve our students. Each school in California must have an elected School Site Council (SSC) to represent parents, students, community members, and school staff in the school governance process, as well as an English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), to advise and consult on school programs that serve our English Learner students. At Marin’s Community School, we combine the SSC and the ELAC into one working group because of our small size. Once we have elected the committee, we will conduct training to ensure that each member knows his or her legally required duties. The responsibilities of our combined committee are:
· To conduct a needs assessment for all students including English Learners
· To review and analyze student achievement data
· To gather input from the community on our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP)
· To monitor the implementation of our LCAP
· To advise school staff on the development of programs and services for English Learners
To serve on this Committee, you must be elected by other parents. If you would like to run for one of the two positions available, please contact Saul Godinez, firstname.lastname@example.org, 415-491-0581. We will text ballots to parents at the end of August, and hold in-person elections at the school on Back to School Night each year.
Family Leadership Team
The Family Leadership Team is a volunteer committee that will work on organizing parent and family participation at our school. We will take action on the ideas that parents have, as well as support our ongoing programs such as field trips, family education days, graduation, and other events. To find out more information or to volunteer, please contact Saul Godinez, email@example.com, 415-491-0581.
