Twain School Site Council (SSC) – Twain’s School Site Council (SSC) is group of teachers, parents, students, administrators, and interested community members who work together to develop and monitor a school's improvement plan. It is a legally required decision-making body for any school receiving federal funds. The actions of the School Site Council are the first step in a formal process for developing improvement strategies and for allocating resources to support these efforts. The SSC decides upon the focus of the school’s academic instructional programs and all related categorical resource expenditures for a school. Information about Twain’s SSC can be found on the school web site at: https://twain.sandiegounified.org/parents/school_site_council . The first Twain SSC meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 26 at 2:30pm in room 6 at 6402 Linda Vista Road.
