A major focus of Ingenuity School's many programs is to involve the parents of our students in as many aspects of their student's education as possible. To this end, ICS provides resources to promote parent involvement to enrich the academic environment at ICS for all students who are enrolled here. We believe that when parents actively participate in their student's school, students are more likely to achieve high standards of academic success for which we strive.
The School Site Council (SSC) meets every other month to discuss school programs, propose and coordinate fundraising opportunities, coordinate parent volunteer opportunities, plan and coordinate school events, make suggestions to sustain the quality of education at ICS, and to review and ratify the school's Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) and budget. All are welcomed to attend.
The California Education Code requires the School Site Council to:
Measure the effectiveness of improvement strategies at the school.
Seek input from school advisory committees.
Reaffirm or revise school goals.
Revise improvement strategies and expenditures.
Recommend the approved single plan for student achievement (SPSA) to the governing board.
Monitor implementation of the SPSA.
Ingenuity's SSC meets the first Thursday of every other month at 3:30 on Zoom during periods of physical school closure.
