Dear Parents,


We invite you to become involved in our goal of creating a world-class education for all students by joining our School Site Council (SSC).  The San Jose Charter Academy School Site Council has the ongoing responsibility of planning, reviewing and monitoring our school improvement program.  Council terms are for two years and meetings are held once a month.  Meeting times are usually scheduled for right after school on Wednesday’s. Serving on the council is an interesting and rewarding way for you to participate in the education of your child.




The primary task of the SSC is to ensure that the school is continually engaged in identifying and implementing curriculum and instructional practices that result in both strengthening the core academic program and ensuring that students have access to and success in the program.  This is accomplished by the SSC through:


            - Deciding to participate in the School Improvement, School Based 


            - Monitoring of school effectiveness

            - Developing, reviewing, and updating school plans

            - Establishing and approving the annual categorical budget

            - Establishing continuous communication links

            - Participating in the school decision-making process


If you wish to be considered for election to serve on the council, please send an email to me at donna.hale@sjcharter.com by Friday, September 23rd.


Please include in your email a typed paragraph stating why you would be a good candidate for this position; your name; your student’s name and grade; and your phone number. Your statement will be added to the ballot.


Thank you,


Mrs. Hale
