Research and common sense tell us that when parents and schools work together, the academic and social achievement of students is much higher. Here at Central City Value, we aim to work together to ensure students receive a high quality education and have access to colleges and universities. Together, we are part of the indispensable fabric of our community's success.
This committee works with school leadership to ensure English Learners receive the services necessary to become proficient in English, enroll in college preparatory classes, and attain higher academic achievement. The ELAC helps to assess needs, set program goals and objectives, and develop a master plan for English Learners at Central City Value. Membership includes school administrators and teachers, but parents of English Learners comprise at least the same percentage of the ELAC membership as English learners constitute of the school’s total student population.
As prescribed by Cal. Ed. Code § 52852, Central City Value High School’s School Site Council comprises the principal, two parents chosen at parent meetings, two faculty members chosen by the faculty, and two students chosen by student election.
The School Site Council also advises on school policies of concern to parents and students (e.g., student uniforms, vacation schedules, nutrition, special classes and extra-curricular activities) and to the faculty (e.g., leave days, faculty dress code and non-classroom responsibilities). The School Site Council meets at least four times a year and complies with the Brown Act in its operations. Information from School Site Council meetings is communicated to the Value Schools Board by the principal.

Central City Value builds a safe, nurturing community of scholars by affirmatively seeking as much student, teacher, and parent participation as possible. The administration uses in-school announcements, letters, the parent/student handbook, and the Value Schools website to advertise opportunities by which stakeholders can help guide Central City Value’s educational program and school operations and to give notice of meetings and events.
