The Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)
State law requires that school-level plans for programs funded through the Consolidated Application be included in a Single Plan for Student Achievement (Education Code Section 64001), developed by School Site Councils with the advice of any applicable school advisory committees. Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) may elect to allocate other funds to schools for inclusion in school plans. Ontario Montclair School District includes Local Control Funding Formula expenditures, as written in the district’s LCAP, in the site’s SPSA. The content of the school plan includes school goals, activities, and expenditures for improving the academic performance of students to the proficient level and above. The plan delineates the actions that are required for program implementation and serves as the school's guide in evaluating progress toward meeting the goals. SPSAs in OMSD are aligned to the district’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).
Each year, in consultation and partnership with School Site Councils, and other parent advisory groups, each school leadership team evaluates their Single Plan for Student Achievement as it relates to school and student achievement data. Each school writes goals aligned to LCAP and is broken down into actionable steps the school will take as well as the identification of a goal will be measured for level of success.
Since the Single Plans for Student Achievement are aligned to the district’s LCAP, the development of the SPSA begins after approval of the District’s LCAP. All school plans must be approved by the Board of Trustees.
