Ruth Asawa SOTA SSC

A group of faculty, parents, administrators and students that provides oversight on a range of school issues and guides the Site Planning Process to ensure that the needs of all students are specifically addressed.


Each SFUSD school must have an elected School Site Council (SSC) to represent parents, students, community members, and school staff in the school governance process. The SSC has a number of important responsibilities, including: reviewing and analyzing student achievement data, gathering community input, helping develop the Balanced Scorecard/Single Plan for Student Achievement (BSC/SPSA) and the school site budget, and monitoring the implementation of the plan and budget.
