School Committees

We welcome your involvement!

School Committees

School Site Council(SSC)/

Site Governance Team (SGT)

The Hardy Elementary School Site Council (SSC) and the Hardy Elementary Site Governance Team (SGT) are an elected, decision-making group made up of parents, teachers, the principal, school staff, and community members who work together to do great things for Hardy's kids!

The SSC plans school goals and objectives, reviews and approves program modifications, monitors progress, and evaluates outcomes. The Council is charged with the legal responsibility to insure services that meet the needs of special student populations. The SSC is also responsible for categorical funding, such as Title I, Second Language and GATE. In other words, the SSC helps make decisions about how to provide an outstanding education program for all students at Hardy Elementary!

SGT members act as an advisory body on issues other than major categorical programs. Hardy's SGT provides a shared decision-making base empowered to plan, problem solve, and make recommendations to improve the quality of education and working life at Hardy Elementary.

Elected parents serve in both groups. All meetings are open and parents/guardians are welcome to attend. If you are interested in serving on the SSC and Governance Team or would like further information, please contact Laura Alluin ([email protected]) at 619-860-5700.

English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

Schools with 21 or more students in the English as a Second Language (ESL) program must establish an English Learner Advisory Committee. The purpose of ELAC is to advise the principal and school staff on programs and services for English Learners. At Hardy Elementary, the ELAC is a subcommittee of the School Site Council/Site Governance Team (SSC/SGT). The subcommittee serves as the advisory body to the school on four key issues:

  • The school plan for English Learners
  • Needs assessment Administration of language census
  • Efforts to make parents aware of the importance of attendance
  • ELAC officers are elected every two years and the committee meets once a month.
