School Site Council


Roles of the School Site Council

A School Site Council (SSC) must be established at all San Francisco Schools.  The elected members of the SSC represent parents, students, community members, and school staff in school governance.  By state law, the SSC must oversee the site-based budgeting of categorical funds and the development and monitoring of the Balanced Score Card (BSC) and the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). 

The SSC is expected to:

  • Review and analyze student data.
  • Solicit community input, including feedback from the ELAC.
  • Assist the principal in developing the Academic Plan and school site budget.
  • Monitor the implementation and effectiveness of the BSC | SPSA on an ongoing basis.
  • Approve the BSC | SPSA and the school site budget before it is submitted to the District for final review and approval.

SSC Planning Retreat

The SF School Planning Retreat provides the opportunity to work together as a team on your school's Balanced Scorecard (BSC), academic plan and budget for the 2018-19 school year.  *2018 Retreat Date TBD.

Presidio news!


Starting next Tuesday, all Presidio Middle School students will be taking the SBAC in Math and English. Eighth graders will also be taking the state Science test. We will be on a special bell schedule for three weeks to allow everyone plenty of time to take the test. All students who have earbuds or headphones of their own may use them for audio sections of the exam, your child can bring their earbuds or headphones on Tuesdays and Thursdays for testing - please remind your child to keep them safe as they are their possessions and their responsibility, we do not want them to be lost. Students who need headphones should let their English teacher know, we have limited quantities to lend out during testing. 


During testing it is especially important for your child to get a good night’s sleep the night before, to eat breakfast on the day of the test, and to take a deep breathe and relax before they begin. 


Please remind your child to bring an independent reading book to class during testing. If they finish early they may read. Any student who has a phone out or on during testing will have violated state testing policy; which is a serious incident - please remind your child make sure to have any electronic devices turned off and put completely away before any testing session begins.


SBAC tests are an opportunity for your child to show off all he or she knows and has learned; with your reminders and encouragement we know they will do their best. 



If you must drop off your student in front of the school, please drive north on 30th Ave or south on 29th Ave so that they don’t have to cross in front of cars and traffic moves smoothly. Please consider arranging an alternative drop-off/pick-up spot with your student a couple of blocks from the school to help relieve traffic congestion. In all cases, DO NOT BLOCK ANY DRIVEWAYS.


The safety of your child is our primary concern. This is an important reminder to talk with our children about ways to stay safe. 

Below are a few tips for talking with your child about prevention and staying safe.

* When possible, walk in pairs or groups. 
* Make sure parents/guardians know where children are, where they are going and who they are with. 
* If your child needs to walk alone, tell them to be VERY aware of their surroundings. NO earbuds or distractions. If a car is driving by slowly, stay away from the sidewalk.
* Do not talk to adults they don't know, especially if the adult is in a car. 
* If someone approaches your child or touches them without permission, tell them to scream or yell loudly using words like "no", "help", etc. to make it clear they need help. YES, It is okay to fight back physically in these situations. 
* Students should not go to the neighborhood stores before or after school.  The school does not provide supervision off our campus so please remind and encourage your child to stay on the campus before school and to go straight home after school.

Thank you for helping us keeping our children and school safe.
