  18. Legal and District Requirements • District Advisory Groups • Title I Law • Greene Act • Meeting Management • Record Keeping

  19. Title I Law Every Title I school must: • Review the District Title I Parent Involvement Policy with Guidelines for Implementation • Develop or revise as needed the site Title I Parent Involvement Policy and the site Home/School Compact

  20. Title I Law • Distribute copies of these three documents to parents in English and other languages as needed • Conduct the annual Title I meeting to inform parents of the Title I Program and its requirements

  21. The Greene ActOpen Meetings • Agenda is posted 72 hours in advance of the meeting • Posting is in a place accessible to public • Agenda must state location, time, and date of meeting • Agenda includes specific details of the meeting • Voting takes place only on posted agenda items unless item is added by unanimous vote

  22. Effective Meeting Management Effective Meeting Management is the foundation of productive meetings The chairperson is the gatekeeper of meeting order The District uses Robert’s Rules of Order as its parliamentary guide

  23. Bylaws Bylaw articles should address: • Duties of the SSC • Membership • Elections • Office • Committees • Meetings • Amendments Bylaws guide the council.

  24. Agenda The agenda should contain: • Call to Order • SSC Business • Data Review • SPSA • Budget • DAC & ELAC & SAC • Public Comment

  25. Records If it is not written, it does not exist. • Minutes, agendas, sign-in sheets, handouts, documents from SSC meetings, and the SPSA are public records • Documents must be kept in the SSC notebook • The SSC Notebook must be made available for public review upon request • Copies must be made upon request * *Please allow schools reasonable amount of response time per request.

  26. Meeting Minutes • Serve as group memory • May be requested by any member of the public • Considered legal documents in the event of a dispute • Always on the agenda for approval SSC secretary can ask for clarification when taking minutes

  27. Why do we maintain records? Categorical Program Monitoring (CPM) • Federal and state laws require the California Department of Education (CDE) to monitor the implementation of categorical programs operated by all California school districts • CPM is a combination of data and document review, and onsite visits of categorical programs administered by our district (requires 7 years plus current year)

  28. Agendas Minutes Elections Bylaws SPSA Budget Information Assessments Parent Involvement Title I Documents Miscellaneous Records maintained in the SSC Notebook

  29. The Single Plan for Student Achievement

  30. The Big Picture The SPSA is a living document that: • Reflects your school’s goals and strategies to improve student achievement • Is a comprehensive plan that is not limited to strategies funded by categorical budgets • Will be posted on the Program Monitoring website and is available upon request

  31. Monitoring the 2009-10 Plan(Ongoing) • Review relevant school and student achievement data • Consider the effectiveness of activities currently in place • Modify or eliminate ineffective activities • Identify obstacles • Examine budget expenditures • Seek input from school committees • Adjust goal objectives and expenditures as needed

  32. What areSMART Goals? S = Strategic and Specific M = Measurable A = Attainable R= Results-based T= Time-bound

  33. Systems of Intervention Tier 3: Intensive Intervention Intensive support specifically designed for individual students (Should address the needs of 5-10% of all students) Tier 2: Strategic Support Additional layered support for students provided in small groups (Should address the needs of 15-20% of all students) Tier 1: Universal Access Access for all students to common, strong, core instructional program that is engaging, rigorous, culturally relevant, and standards-based (Should meet the needs of 70-80%)

  34. “Show Me the Money” The Budget

  35. School Budgets Schools have two primary sources of funds to operate the school. • Unrestricted budgets (district funds) • Restricted budgets (categorical funds) In addition, schools may receive funds through grants, foundations, PTA, and miscellaneous other sources.

  36. Categorical Funds(under SSC purview) DescriptionResource Code • Title I Basic 30100 • Title I Parent Involvement 30103 • School-Based Cord. Program 72500 • EIA/LEP 70910 • EIA/SCE 70900 • School & Library Imp. Grant 73950 • HPSGP 72581/72582 • QEIA 74000

  37. Guidelines for Categorical Expenditures The purpose of supplemental funds is to: • Provide direct instructional support to students to improve academic achievement in ELA and mathematics using Tier 2 & 3 strategies • Supplement the district’s general program. • Support professional development • Foster new types of parent partnerships that focus on improving student achievement

  38. Reallocating Expenses Before requesting a budget transfer of expenses, you must remember: Money is not limitless—you must transfer money out of a resource in order to pay for the newly-identified expense. The SSC should make prudent use of limited funds. You should get the most “bang for your buck.”
