School Accountability Report Card

Single Plan for Student Achievement

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.

Why Join PTSA?

Enjoy the benefits

The number-one reason to join the Parent Teacher Student
Association is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your
school. But there are many more advantages. Here are just a few:

Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening
at your school.

Discover Great Resources. The PTSA offers a variety of programs
designed for parents as well as students.

Tap into a Network. Parenting is not easy—PTSA acts as a network
to share ideas, concerns and experiences with other parents and
educators in the community. PTSA functions are opportunities to
meet other parents and teachers within our school community,
building a rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind.

Watch Yourself Grow. By volunteering with your PTSA, you gain
valuable experiences. It’s an opportunity to put your skills and
hobbies to good use for a good cause—your child and all children in
the community.

Speak Up. Because the PTSA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you
are encouraged to make suggestions. PTSA can be a way for you to
more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.

Witness Improvement. By getting involved at your child’s school
you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes. Local
PTSA’s play an important role in fundraising to provide building
improvements, curriculum-based programs, and social events—all
vital to a school’s success.

Be a Role Model. By becoming a PTSA member, you’ll be
demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
