One great way to get involved with OBE is to serve on one of our comittees. We are always looking for enthusiastic parents to lend a hand and help improve our school. Please take a look at the list below and see what interests you. Please note, there are other committees that form on an "as-needed" basis as well.
School Site Council (SSC)
The SSC is an elected decision-making group comprised of parents, community members, site administrators, teachers and other staff. At the secondary level, students are included. The SSC has an ongoing responsibility to develop, implement, monitor and evaluate the site plan. The SSC also oversees all the categorical funds such as Title I, Second Language and GATE. All schools are required to have an SSC. Contact your site administrator or SSC chair if you are interested in joining.
Site Governance Team (SGT)
Each school has a SGT to act as its advisory body on issues other than major categorical programs. Contact your school administrator if you are interested in being part of your school"s SGT.
English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)
Schools which have twenty-one or more English as a Second Language (ESL) students also have an English Learner Advisory Committee. It serves as the advisory body to the school on four key issues:
- The school plan for English learners
- Needs assessment
- Administration of the language census
- Efforts to make parents aware of the importance of attendance
