2021-2022 School Site Council/School Governance Team

We have a few opportunities for our parents and community members to be involved in the decision-making process through participation in our School Site Council (SSC) and our School Governance Team (SGT).   

Our SSC is responsible for the Site Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) as well as the allocation of Title I resources to support student learning. SSC Members also represent Taft at our District Advisory Committee (DAC).  It is a great opportunity to be formally involved in our school community.  

Our SGT is responsible for the policies and academic programming of the school.  The SGT sets the schedule for the school as well as local school and student policies. 

The time required for both of these meetings is approximately an hour and a half  once a month.    

For the 2021-2022 school year, we will have 5 parent/community vacancies.  Parents who have expressed interest in serving on these committees will have their names be placed on a Parent Ballot. 

If you are a parent or a community member who would like to volunteer to serve on these committees, please email Ms. Rosemary Acevedo, at [email protected] by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, October 4, 2021.  Ballots will be sent home with students and must be returned by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, October 11, 2021.  New SSC and SGT members will be notified by Tuesday, October 12, 2021. 

The first meeting of the 2021-2022 school year for both committees will be on Thursday, October 14, 2021, at 4:15 p.m.  The schedule for 2021-2022 meetings will be the 2nd Thursday of each month.
