Parents! We encourage you to make a difference in the governance of our school by participating in this year’s School Site Council (SSC) and/or the English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). These groups are mandated by California Education Code and directed by GSD policy. The SSC is mandated under California Education Code 52853 and makes decisions regarding the use of categorical funding for our students based on written recommendations from our school’s English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). The SSC represents all our stakeholders and is comprised of teachers, parents/community, other school staff, the principal, and students. The English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is mandated under California Education Code 52176(b). Please join us for our upcoming monthly meetings throughout the 2023-2024 school year. All meeting dates can be found on the school calendar. GSD has a district level ELAC aka DELAC. Here are their meeting dates and topics.
