The School/Student Achievement Plan (SSAP) is a comprehensive plan designed to improve student achievement. It involves analyzing the school’s performance overtime using multiple lines of evidence and setting specific, measurable goals for improvement. The SSAP includes the LAND Trust Plan as well as many initiatives already in place in the school—such as Accreditation, Grants, Professional Development, Special Programs, alliances with networks, universities,business partners, etc. To view Arcadia’s SSAP plan use the following link:
What is Community Council? (click here)
School Community Councils are elected parent/guardian and employee representatives who work together with the Principal to increase student achievement. By law, the Council is responsible to review school data and develop plans for school improvement. Councils also allocate the LAND Trust funds to assist the school in reaching achievement goals.
Parents elect parent representatives and employees elect employees for two-year terms. To be eligible, a parent must have a student enrolled in the school for at least one of the years and may not be employed by the school for more than an average of six hours per week per month. Elections are held during Elementary SEP Conferences.
