Whenever feasible, any other school plan may be incorporated into the single plan for student achievement.

The Superintendent or designee shall review each school's single plan and ensure that it has been developed and approved by a properly constituted school site council, meets the content requirements for all programs included, is based on an analysis of current practices and student academic performance, and reasonably links improvement strategies to identified needs of the school and students. He/she shall submit to the Governing Board his/her recommendations for plan approval or recommendations regarding any subsequent material revisions of the plan.

The Board shall review and approve each school's single plan for student achievement at a regularly scheduled meeting. The Board also shall review and approve any subsequent revisions that include material changes affecting the academic programs for students participating in these categorical programs. The Board shall certify that, to the extent allowable under federal law, the plan is consistent with district local improvement plans required as a condition of receiving federal funding. (Education Code 64001)

The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that principals and members of each site council receive training on the roles and responsibilities of the site council. To the extent necessary, he/she shall ensure that site councils receive the resources necessary in order to perform their role effectively.

School Site Block Grants

Upon receipt of state funding for school site block grants, the Board shall allocate the funds to district schools on an equal per-pupil basis. (AB 1802, Sec. 43, Statutes of 2006)

The school's use of the funds allocated through this block grant shall be proposed by the school site council or, if the school does not have a school site council, by a schoolwide advisory group or school support group. (AB 1802, Sec. 43, Statutes of 2006)

The Board encourages school site councils to fund the highest priority needs identified in school improvement plans. The school site council shall provide the Superintendent or designee and the Board with a written proposal that includes a statement of the identified need(s) and how the funds will be used to enhance the educational program.

Before the funds are encumbered or expended, the Board shall approve the site council's proposed use of the funds. If the Board does not approve the proposed use, the Board shall inform the school site council of the reasons for disapproval and request that the council review and revise its proposal. (AB 1802, Sec. 43, Statutes of 2006)
