Estimada Familia de James Lick:

Nuestra escuela James Lick está organizando elecciones para los comités escolares. Éstos se tienen que establecer antes del 26 de septiembre de 2018. Le invitamos a que se nomine a usted mismo u otra persona para los siguientes comités:

  • School Site Council (SSC) – El Concilio Escolar (Comité para el mejoramiento de programas escolares)
  • English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC) – El comité para estudiantes del idioma inglés como segundo idioma


El Concilio Escolar (School Site Council-SSC) se tiene que establecer en todas las escuelas públicas de San Francisco. Los miembros representan a los padres, los estudiantes, los miembros de la comunidad y la escuela en cuanto a la gobernación de la escuela. El SSC tiene la responsabilidad de desarrollar el Plan Académico y el presupuesto general de la escuela incluyendo los fondos de categorías específicas. El SSC debe:

  • Revisar el plan estratégico del distrito escolar: Más allá de las palabras.
  • Revisar y analizar datos y otra información sobre los logros de los estudiantes.
  • Solicitar las opiniones de la comunidad escolar y desarrollar una evaluación de las necesidades escolares.
  • Asistir al director/a en el desarrollo del BSC/SPSA y el presupuesto escolar.
  • Comprobar continuamente la implementación del BSC/SPSA y evaluar su efectividad.
  • Aprobar el BSC/SPSA y el presupuesto escolar antes de que se mande a la oficina central.

Adjunto a este mensaje está el formulario de nominación para los padres que estén interesados en participar en el SSC y / o ELAC


El propósito del comité consejero ELAC-English Learners Advisory Committee es el de aconsejar al director/a y personal de la escuela acerca de los programas y servicios para alumnos aprendices del inglés. Las tareas son similares a los del SSC (arriba) y además incluyen: vigilar el censo anual de lenguaje y aconsejar a los padres sobre maneras de comunicarse y la importancia de la asistencia diaria de sus hijos/as a la escuela.

Se necesitan los concilios y comités escolares para apoyar a todos los programas. Se le invita a ser candidato para la membrecía en el concilio y/o en cualquier otro o todos los comités que usted escoja. La escuela y el distrito tienen la responsabilidad de proveerle con la información y el entrenamiento que necesita para ser un miembro efectivo. Generalmente, los comités se reúnen una vez al mes por unas dos horas. Cada miembro se elige por uno o dos años. Los padres de familia podrán observar y opinar si en verdad hay un ambiente educativo positivo y si sus hijos comprenden las tareas que se les asignan. El compromiso y la participación de las familias son importantes para nuestras escuelas. Si tiene alguna pregunta, haga el favor de llamar al director Tim Reidy o Osvaldo Ortiz, el Enlace de Familia al 415- 695-5675


Dear James Lick Families:

James Lick Middle School is holding elections for school committees, which must be completed before September 26, 2018. We invite you to nominate yourself or others for the following:


  • School Site Council (SSC)
  • English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC)  


A School Site Council (SSC) must be established at all San Francisco Unified School District public schools. The elected members represent parents, students, community members, and school staff in school governance. The SSC is responsible for the development of the Academic Plan, and overall school site budget including any categorical funds. The SSC is expected to:


  • Review the SFUSD Strategic Plan: Beyond the Talk.
  • Review and analyze student data.
  • Solicit community input and develop a needs assessment.
  • Assist the principal in developing the BSC/SPSA and school site budget.
  • Monitor the implementation and effectiveness of the BSC/SPSA on an ongoing basis.
  • Approve the Academic Plan and school site budget before it is submitted to the District for final review and approval.

Attached to this message is the nomination form for parents that are interested in being involved in the SSC.


The purpose of the English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC) is to advise the principal, SSC and school staff on programs and services for English Learners. The tasks are similar to the SSC’s (stated above) and also include: the annual language census and ways to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.

The school council and committees are needed to support all school programs. You are invited to become a candidate for membership on the council and/or any or all of the committees of your choice. The school & district are responsible for providing you with the information and training you need to be an effective member.


Generally, the groups meet once a month for two hours. Each member is elected for either a one or two-year term. Family members often offer insights into how effective our school is in creating a positive learning environment and how well their children understand their assignments. Perspectives and parent participation/involvement are important to our school. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Principal Tim Reidy or Osvaldo Ortiz, the Family Liaison at 415- 695-5675


Mark your calendars now for JLMS Back-to-School Night, which will be on Thursday, October 4, 2018.

The new JLMS Reading Zone kicked off on Monday, August 26th.  During Reading Zone, every day after lunch at the beginning of 6th period the entire school spends 13 minutes reading in silence.  You can help by reminding your student every morning to pack a book, graphic novel, comic book, magazine, Nook or Kindle with them...and don’t forget to check in with them every evening about what they’re reading.  More information about the Reading Zone as it was introduced to the student community is attached.
