Each school in San José Unified annually develops a Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). This plan includes the academic goals the school will be working on during the year and shows how the school will be using the funds allocated to the site.
The SPSA is written with the help of the School Site Council, which then approves the final document and forwards it to the Board of Education for their approval.
We welcome volunteers who help our teachers and staff elevate opportunities for students. Please review the following processes.
