Comprehensive School Safety Plan (CSSP)
California Education Code 32280-32289.5 outlines the requirements and information required for the CSSP, which is required to be reviewed and updated each year by all California public schools. The CSSP is a public document reviewed and updated each year by the Schoolsite Council (SSC). Many components of the CSSP are developed and updated by San José Unified district staff, who coordinate responses to safety-related issues across each of San José Unified’s schools, in consultation with other agencies, including the San José Police Department and San José Fire Department. These components are shared in the CSSP template provided to schools for their completion.
The CSSP contains an overview of the school’s holistic approach to safety, including emergency responses. This plan explains the San José Unified emergency protocols and the steps that should be taken in a variety of emergency situations
Single Plan for Student Achievement
Every year, each school in San José Unified 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 funds allocated to the site by the district and state.
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.
