School Governance


Aligned with Brentwood's belief in parent engagement and empowerment as essential to effective schools, the School Site Council (SSC) is the decision-making council for all programs funded through the Consolidated Application (ConAp), used by the California Department of Education (CDE) to distribute categorical funds from various state and federal programs to school districts throughout California.

The SSC is responsible for the development of the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), in consultation with the English Learner Advisory Committee, and other relevant stakeholders. The SSC is also responsible for meeting all school level federal parental involvement mandates including the development of the Title I parent involvement policy and budget (E046) and the Title I parent-school compact.

We will post SSC agendas and other relevant news (meetings dates and times, fall elections and results, etc.) here. Check back often to stay informed, engaged, and empowered.  


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.


The Local School Leadership Council (LSLC) serves to approve and calendar all events from fundraising to professional development and special programs.
