School Site Council
updated: October 10, 2020
PHS School Site Council
The California Education Code requires the school site council to develop a Single Plan for Student Achievement. The purpose of the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) is to create a cycle of continuous improvement of student performance, and to ensure that all students succeed in reaching academic standards set by the State Board of Education. The California Education Code requires the school site council to develop a Single Plan for Student Achievement for Consolidated Application programs operated at the school or in which the school participates.
The PHS Site Council will serve as a forum where school staff, parents, and students can discuss a variety of issues that affect student performance at Piedmont High School. To support focus in the area of curriculum, agendas are typically developed in order to coincide with the curricular areas that are up for adoption.
