The last meeting of the 2020-2021 School Site Council (SSC) will take place on Thursday, September 30, 2021, at 4:15 p.m. via Zoom.  We will use code 858 935 2650. Our School Governance Team (SGT) will meet immediately after the conclusion of our SSC.  Both of these committees require staff and parent voices to share decision-making on behalf of our community.  The agenda is attached to this communication.

Our SSC is responsible for the Site Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) as well as the allocation of Title I resources to support student learning. SSC Members also represent Taft at our District Advisory Committee (DAC).  It is a great opportunity to be formally involved in our school community.  

Our SGT is responsible for the policies and academic programming of the school.  The SGT sets the schedule for the school as well as local school and student policies.

The time required for both of these meetings is approximately an hour and a half once a month.   

For the 2021-2022 school year, we will have 5 parent/community vacancies.  Parents who have expressed interest in serving on these committees will have their names be placed on a Parent Ballot. 

If you are a parent or a community member who would like to volunteer to serve on these committees, please email Ms. Rosemary Acevedo, at racevedo@sandi.net by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, October 4, 2021.  Ballots will be sent home with students and must be returned by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, October 11, 2021.  New SSC and SGT members will be notified by Tuesday, October 12, 2021. 

The first meeting of the 2021-2022 school year for both committees will be on Thursday, October 14, 2021, at 4:15 p.m.  The schedule for 2021-2022 meetings will be the 2nd Thursday of each month.
