Our School School Site Council was established as required by the California Education Code. The council provides a means to improve communication from Sycamore Canyon Elementary School to the community and the community to Sycamore Canyon Elementary School. Members of the council represent various groups from within our school and community.
The Council oversees the writing of the School Improvement Plan and assesses the effectiveness of Sycamore Canyon Elementary School's program. The School Site Council has an on-going responsibility with the principal and staff to review the implementation of the school plan, integrating the plan with expenditures from the School Improvement Funds provided by our state.
All members (except the school principal) are elected by their peers. Members may serve up to two consecutive, two-year terms (a total of four consecutive years). They are involved in the teaching and learning process by actively participating in the meetings, observing the teaching and learning in person, representing the views of the community to the school supporting the improvement process and reviewing, recommending and acting on ideas that will increase learning for all students based on, but not limited to, establishing school improvement goals based on the evaluation of student assessment data.

Excellence in education is achieved through the cooperative effort of the total school community. This includes students, parents, teachers and the community members. A tradition of excellence has been established at Sycamore Canyon because of the cooperation of these groups. One of the main channels for these cooperative efforts is our School/Advisory Council (SSC/SAC) which consists of representative members from these groups.
