School Site Council & ELAC

School Site Council  (SSC)

As a Title I school, Wilshire Park Elementary has the opportunity to help economically disadvantaged students get the educational support they need to succeed in school. The purpose of the School Site Council (SSC) is to develop a Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) with input from all stakeholders based on recommendations from CEAC and ELAC. 

School Site Council approves use of categorical funds to expand educational opportunities for students while the budget is reviewed regularly.

English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC)

The English Learners Advisory Committee is focused on enabling programs to help students become proficient in English. The Committee is primarily made up of parents of Limited-English Proficient (LEP) students with the goal of getting the students reclassified once they fulfill their target numbers on the California English Language Development Test (CELDT). ELAC makes budget and program recommendations to School Site Council (SSC) on how to spend funds designated for bilingual education. ELAC also helps in developing the school's language census.

  1. Annual review of the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) with data.

Ms. Cho, Title I Coordinator, presented school data and the members were given time to review the data sheets and make suggestions to the new SPSA goals.


ELA data review-DIBELS and SBAC scores

By the end of this year, DIBELS data will improve 5% based on the MOY.


Math goals- based on the SBAC scores.  By June 2019, Goal is to improve the overall percentage of the meeting math standards will increase by 5%, from 35% to 40%.


ELD goals- By June 2019, the percentage of English learners in grades K-5 who will be at or above benchmark in the foundational reading skills as measured by DIBELS will increase by 5% from 40% to 45%.


School climate- the percentage of students who say that adults at this school who talk to them about different college choices for their future will increase 5% from 50% to  55% in the school experience survey for the 2018-2019 school year.


Discussed the possibility of college day to promote college awareness for our students.  College awareness day make be linked to career day.


Basically, improve 5% in all focus areas.


Teachers also need to be more aware of students who are absent based on the school climate data.


We have to improve our scores by 5% in general.  Jennifer Hensley makes a motion to accept the new SPSA goals for the following school year.  Bob Morehouse seconded it.  All in favor, none opposed.  Motion is passed with a unanimous vote.


  1. Needs Assessment Results

Reviewed the top 10 needs assessment from parents, teachers, and classified staff.

Parents said that nurse was number 1, and school psychologist.  All stakeholders chose Teachers Assistants to be the top 10 priority.


The needs assessment is for our information and input for budgetary items.


  1. Budget allocation

Reviewed the budget handbook, reviewed Title 1 budget allocations and things that we can purchase as a Title 1 school.  Majority of our budget comes from Title 1 fund and it is very restricted on how to use it. 


We use 7SO46 and 7EO46 and we cannot buy the ones that are blacked out. 

SSC gets it done at the beginning of the year so that we don’t have to go back and forth to prove it every time.  This is a Reference guide for doing the budget.


Reviewed the budget for Title 1 from last year.


Title 1 budget has increased from last year from $237,273 to $263,318.

Principal proposed Option 1 and Option 2 for the members to improve. 

Reviewed the roles of the parent community reps.

General budget comes from the district, and the teacher’s absence determines the amount of money that we receive.

The difference between Option 1 and Option 2 is that Option 2 has the program called “STEM and More”, which is the program where instructors come once a week and teach lessons on STEM.  We want students to expose to NGSS standards. 


If we do STEM and More, and we pay for Title 1, we lose one of the TAs for next year.  

We want to delete use of Reading Plus because 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades do not use it often and it is not worth it to purchase from the fund, so we want to get STEM and More.


We can vote on the Option 1 with STEM and More $6720, Intervention $6968, cut out Reading Plus $6100, and we keep the 5 TAs, Lexia $6300 and Dreambox $4000.   


Bob Morehouse made motion to approve the modified version of option 1.

Ms. Williams seconded it.  A unanimous 7-0 vote was in favor to approve the modified version of option 1.  Motion carried.


     D.  Recommendation from ELAC

ELAC did have quorum during their last meeting. 

The committee recommends that the school have reclassification parent workshops, afterschool intervention, restorative justice parent workshops, teacher PD on how to analyze DIBELS data, DIBELS data analysis.

ELAC recommends DIBELS data analysis 

Do we accept the ELAC recommendations?
