Grant Loves Parents
All our parents are invited to get involved at Grant Elementary. Check out some way that you too can be a part of the Grant family.
School Site Council
The School Site Council's role is to ensure that the school is continually engaged in identifying and implementing curriculum and instructional practices that result in both strengthening the core academic program and ensuring that students have access to and success in that program.
The three main responsibilities of SSC are:
Develop the school plan/budget and recommend to local governing board (EC 62002)
Implement plan and monitor program effectiveness (EC 52021, 62002.3)
Annually evaluate goals and objectives of the school plan (EC 52021, 62002.5)
SSC must be organized to ensure parity among its members. One half of a council must be comprised of parents and community members (elementary schools) or students in high schools. Certificated staff must be comprised of classroom teachers, TOAs or CPSs. Teachers must be in the majority. The other half of the council is comprised of school personnel: the principal, certificated, and classified staff. Representatives of each group--parents, teachers, students and other staff--must be selected by their peers. Alternates may be selected at the time elections are held. This committee meets once a month. Please check your school calendar for dates and times.
English Language Advisory Council
ELAC monitors development and implementation of the school's English learner program. This committee communicates with the principal and staff regarding the school's plan for English learner education. The ELAC is comprised of parents of LEP students, staff members and community members. Parent membership is determined by means of an election in which all parents of LEP students have an opportunity to vote.
This committee meets about once a month, prior to School Site Council, and makes recommendations to the Council. Please check your school calendar for dates and times.
The Grant Parent Boosters are a non-profit organization that raises funds to support the educational process at Grant School. Each year the Boosters organize a Fall Festival, a Book Fair, and several other fundraisers aimed at provided additional funding for materials and activities. Grant Boosters also provide classroom supplies like printer ink, copy toner, safety supplies, pencils, paper, binders, dividers, and many other needed items. Field trips are provided through the Boosters as well. Please contact our school office about getting involved in the Booster Organization.
