Jefferson Elementary

Thomas Jefferson Elementary School was established in 1913. It is located in the community of North Park in San Diego, deemed by Forbes Magazine as one of America's hippest neighborhoods.

Our school is proud to be the first San Diego Unified School District elementary school to be both an International Baccalaureate (IB) school and a STEAM school. 


School Site Council (SSC)

The SSC is an elected decision-making group comprised of parents, community members, site administrators, teachers and other staff. Our council identifies needs for academic programs to create the site plan. This plan reflects our school's educational goals and strategies for achieving those goals for all of our students. The SSC has an ongoing responsibility to develop, implement, monitor and evaluate the site plan. 

School Site Councils are also required by the State of California to oversee all the categorical funds such as Title I, Second Language and GATE. All schools are required to have an SSC. Please contact the school or SSC chair if you are interested in joining please contact the school.

Members of the School Site Council are elected to two-year terms with parents, staff and classified personnel electing their own representatives.

SSC bylaws, Agendas, and Minutes are on file in the office.
