Get Involved

Support Jefferson Elementary!

Community getting involved with activities

Help your child be as successful at school as possible. When parents are involved in their child's school kids get better grades, have better behavior, and their confidence increases because they feel supported at home.

At Jefferson there are many opportunities for parents to be a part of the school. Volunteer in a classroom, read to a child, pass out water at the jog-a-thon, join a school committee. 

Even just a few hours a year can make a huge difference to your child and the 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.
