Nominations for SSC & DAC/DELAC now open!


Vista Square is in the process of reconvening school committees and holding elections, as required by state and federal regulations. You are invited to become a candidate for membership on the School Site Council, and/or English Language Advisory Committee.

The School Site Council (SSC) represents parents, students, community members, and school staff in school governance. The SSC is responsible for the development, revision and monitoring of the Single Plan for Student Achievement, and overall school site budget including any state and federal categorical funds.

The English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) advises the principal and the SSC on programs and services for English Learners. Their task also includes making parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance. The representative attends a meeting once per month at the district with the school principal.

The school and district are responsible for providing you with the information and training you need to be an effective member. Generally, committees meet once a month for an hour.

SSC has a two-year term and DELAC officials are elected annually.
