School Site Council

Welcome

Welcome to Live Oak Elementary School Site Council page! We encourage you to use this page as a tool to explore WHY Live Oak Elementary School is more than a California Distinguished School, California Gold Ribbon School and a Title 1 Academic Achieving School. A standard bearer for SRVUSD. Rather, use the tools on this page to discover the qualitative value of Live Oak that differentiates it from others by strategically working every day to meet the well-balanced needs of ALL its students.

Serving on a committee of parents, administrators, and teachers is a wonderful way to gain perspective on the relevant viewpoints of each of those caring participant groups.  It has been clarifying for me to learn how academic programs and school improvement programs are evaluated and adjusted to meet the needs of all students.  It is a distinct honor to partner with members of the school community whose goal it is to continue to discuss and find ways to improve Live Oak School in spite of its already solid reputation.                                                  Joanne Adjoian—Teacher representative

Who are We?

The School Site Council (the Council) serves as the governing board of Live Oak Elementary School (the “School”), which determines the focus of the School’s academic instructional programs and all related categorical resources.  The Council is made up of teachers, parents, and other school personnel who work with the Principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs, the School budget as well as school safety.

All members of the Council with the exception of the Principal, serve for a term of two years. Parent members of the Council are elected by the parents in the school community; teacher members of the Council are elected by their peers. Council members have an obligation to make decisions that best serve the school community.

The Council meets on a monthly basis, typically on the second Wednesday in the school library from 2:30 PM.- 3:30 P.M. Please consult the school calendar for specific time and location. All meetings are open to the public and participation is welcomed and appreciated. The Site Council reserves time for public comment at the end of each meeting. In consideration of the noticed agenda and time, public comments are recorded at the meeting and addressed by the Council at the following month's meeting.

 

Live Oak School Site Council Elections

Congratulations to our newly elected School Site Council board members:

Heidi Ellicott-Pesic 

 

They will join Anishka Peiris as parent representatives on next year's School Site Council. 

What is our Purpose?

Every year, the Council analyzes and evaluates the academic achievement of all students in the School. After reviewing the School’s academic performance and looking at the big picture of the School’s progress, the Council and the Principal create the School Plan. This plan, once developed, is submitted by the school to the district for approval and remains the School Plan for a period of 3 years.

This School Plan may include a new academic program or a staff member or parent outreach strategy. As the School budget is limited and many funds can only be spent under strict guidelines, the decisions are made taking into consideration the best overall interest of our school and students.

Over the course of a year, the Council works with the Principal to evaluate the school's progress towards the goals included in the School Plan. To monitor performance, individuals who are responsible for programs in the School Plan are invited to make a presentation to the Council during its scheduled meetings. During these presentations, the Council seeks to understand the nature of the program, success to date, and opportunities for improvement.

"It has been an eye opener for me to learn about all the time & effort that the Administrators and teachers put in to give our kids the best school experience.  Focusing on a good education is important, but also making sure the student is given the tools/resources to handle different situations is invaluable.  I appreciate the opportunity to be involved at this level and enjoy collaborating with the teachers, administrators and other parents." - Jennifer Chen, Council Member 2016-2018
