District Committees

San José Unified’s Advisory Committees and Groups offer opportunities for parents, teachers, students, and community members to make an impact on the district and our schools. We value input from our stakeholders on key issues and initiatives, and we encourage you to get involved. Meetings are open to the public. Please check the District Calendar for meeting times and locations.

School Committees

School committees offer an opportunity for parents, students, staff, and administrators to get involved in shaping the decisions that are made at the school level. California public schools with 21 or more English Learners must form a School English Learner Advisory Committee (SELAC) and nearly all California schools have a Schoolsite Council (SSC). All schools in San José Unified have an SSC and SELAC.  

Student Committees

High school students have a variety of leadership opportunities that enable them to collaborate with their peers, plan and execute school events, and help shape school-level decision making.
