School Site Council (SSC)
We have one decision-making council at Ivanhoe Elementary, the School Site Council (SSC).
The SSC is responsible for developing, approving and annually revising the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The Council oversees the site-based budgeting of categorical funds (State and Federal monies).
The Council is comprised of 5 school employees and 5 parents that are elected to the council. Specific tasks of the SSC are to: review and analyze student data, approve the annual school site budget, monitor the implementation and effectiveness of the academic plan on an ongoing basis. The SSC is also responsible for allocating the funds that Friends of Ivanhoe (FOI) raises throughout the year. School Site Council Certification Form
The Council terms last two years and they are staggered. Last year the terms were split between one and two years so that there would be continuity on the Council. Meetings are held typically on the third Thursday of each month in room 16 and they are open to the public. Please check the school calendar to confirm each meeting date, time and location.
