Agenda Item for Board Meeting of 11/7/2019

Agenda Category:  REVIEW AND ACTION

Agenda Item Title:  Single Plans for Student Achievement (30 minutes)

Estimated Time: 

Person Responsible:  Cathy Baur:  Chief Academic Officer


School site plans are being presented for approval. The principal from each site will be present at the meeting to answer questions specific to their plan.  


The Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) is a document that represents a school’s cycle of continuous improvement of student performance. The SPSA should be developed with a deep understanding of root causes of student academic challenges and identify and implement research-based instructional strategies to raise the achievement of students who are not yet proficient by state standards. A well-developed SPSA can ensure that students are better equipped to meet the California State Standards in English Language Arts and mathematics.  In addition, the plan also addresses funding and proposed expenditures related to state and federal categorical programs. 


The development process is the result of a collaborative effort between the school staff and members of the School Site Council (SSC) with input from the school community and site advisory groups including the English Learner Advisory Council (ELAC).  Draft site plans have been available for Board of Trustee and public review through the District website since October 8, 2019. In addition, site principals have communicated to their stakeholders highlights of their plans. While the starting date of the annual planning cycle is a local decision, every school needs to have a plan approved by their School Site Council and Board of Trustees.   


District and site administration are responsible for implementing and evaluating the activities included in the SPSA as approved by the local governing board. Once the plan is approved and implemented, each SSC in collaboration with site staff and advisory groups are responsible for monitoring the effectiveness of planned activities and modifying those that prove ineffective.
