NOMINEES NEEDED FOR THE CORREIA SCHOOL SITE COUNCIL AND GOVERNANCE TEAM
What is the SSC and SGT?
The School Site Council (SSC) is responsible for the following tasks; review school and student performance data, establish/review school goals, monitor implementation of the site plan for student achievement, develop/oversee the parent involvement policy and home school compact and annually approve and recommend the SPSA to the SDUSD Board of Education for approval (categorical budget and school goals).
The Site Governance Team (SGT) ensures shared decision-making occurs on instructional programs including; changes in the school’s subject emphasis, school-wide student discipline plan, site security plan, and multiple-site assignments for applicable programs.
Our SSC and SGT meet on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.
We look for a two-year commitment for new members. This year we are in need of two additional members.
If you are interested in joining our Correia SSC/SGT please fill out the nomination form.
Similar Size Schools in SDUSD Receive 14x More Funding Than Correia Middle, as well as PLHS & Dana...Why?
The answer is related to Title 1 rankings. As you may already know, Free and Reduced Price Meal (FRPM) status is used to designate Title I rankings within the district. Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) data collection affects Title I Eligibility/Ranking, and the higher the collection rate, the more funding individual school sites will receive.
Please help Correia Middle and our PL feeder schools! The collection of LCFF data has moved to an electronic collection process. Parents can visit the PowerSchool Parent Portal to access the electronic LCFF Form. We are hopeful this process will allow families to provide the information needed to properly fund Correia Middle in a timely and more efficient manner.
The data you enter will not affect your child receiving free meals at this school as all children will have free access to meals this school year. The LCFF online form is available on the Parent Portal, and NOT on the student’s portal.
It is important for students to bring their Chromebook every day so they can fully participate in their class lessons. We have a very small amount to loan out (maybe between 4 - 6 total) so it is important that students bring their own daily.
