October 25, 2018 Question: Do charter schools have to establish an SSC or SPSA?

Answer: AB716: Public elementary and secondary schools: consolidated applications for funding: school plans for student achievement: school site councils, creates new flexibilities for charter schools. Beginning on January 1, 2019, charter schools that receive Title I funds can use their LCAP rather than drafting a Single Plan for Student Achievement. Instead of a School Site Council, charter schools can establish an LCAP Advisory Group. The group should be comprised of parents, teachers, staff, students, etc., who discuss the LCAP throughout the year, including the use of Title I and Title III funds. These meetings should be documented for the LCAP "stakeholder engagement" section, and for Federal Program Monitoring purposes.
