Requires each school to consolidate all plans required by Consolidated Application Programs into a Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).
(Education Code Sections 64001 [d],[f])
The intent of the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) is to create a cycle of continuous improvement of student performance, and to ensure that all students succeed in reaching state academic standards.
The school plan serves as an official document in audits to determine appropriate expenditures of categorical funds, including equipment purchases, and personnel responsible to complete multifunded and semiannual certifications.

Steps for Developing the Single Plan for Student Achievement
The graphic represents the cycle of actions required by the SSC in the development, implementation and revision of the SPSA.
Step 3: Reaffirm or Revise School Goals

Step 4: Revise Improvement Strategies and Expenditures
The SSC will adopt specific actions to reach each goal, specify dates by which actions are to be started and completed, identify expenditures needed to implement the action, and identify the funding source.
Step 5: Approve and Recommend the SPSA to the Governing Board
After appropriate advisory committees have reviewed the proposed SPSA, the SSC must approve it at a meeting for which a public notice has been posted.

Restructuring Plans must be approved by the local district superintendent before implementation.
Note: For schools identified as Program Improvement (PI), the SSC remains in place.
Step 6: Monitor Implementation
Once the plan is approved, the responsibility of the SSC
is to monitor the effectiveness of planned activities and
modify those that prove ineffective.
Monitoring should follow the calendar of events
established by the SPSA to verify timely implementation
