Parent Organizations

At Grant Elementary we encourage parent and community involvement. We have various parent and community groups which comprise of parents, staff, and community members. We hope that not only are we helping and serving our students but also our parents and the community as one.

Our school has a School Site Council committee known as SSC, a School English Language Advisory Committee known as SELAC and a PTA.

Join our SSC/SELAC committees. The Schoolsite Council (SSC) is a decision-making group of parents, students, school staff, and administrators. The SSC participates in determining how funds are allocated to the school, and develops, monitors, and evaluates the School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The SSC evaluates the effectiveness of programs in increasing student achievement by reviewing student achievement data, coordinating with the School English Learner Advisory Committee (SELAC) to review programs for English Learners, and reviewing the use of Supplemental and Title I funds to support target populations. 

Join our SELAC committee. 

Each school with 21 or more students classified as English Learners will have an established English Learners Advisory Committee, which may be a subcommittee of the School Site Council (SSC). The School English Learner Advisory Committee (SELAC) is a school-based committee that advises the principal and staff on programs and services for English Learners.

The School English Learners Advisory Committee (SELAC) is a school-based committee that advises the principal and staff on programs and services for English Learners. The SELAC also submits a site plan for English Learners to the Schoolsite Council for consideration in the School Plan for Student Achievement. At least two members of the SELAC represent the school in the District English Learners Advisory Committee (DELAC) and attend monthly DELAC meetings.

Join our Grant PTA.

Grant Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization focused on bolstering funding and building community for Grant Elementary School students. We are a public, Title I school which means that over half the students qualify for subsidized lunch and come from low-income households. Despite this challenge, Grant is a school in great spirits, with a culture of respect and a deep appreciation for diversity. Grant is thriving with arts, culture, holiday celebrations, STEM curriculum, and science camp provided for all 5th graders. The Grant Elementary PTA is seeking funds to help pay for arts enrichment, field trips for all students, rewards for academic and behavioral excellence, supplies, improvements to the school, extra curricular after-school mariachi, folklorico dance trumpet and guitar lessons, and other expenses.

Joining the PTA is your vote of support for what we do. You can join, and do nothing (that is totally fine. We know busy parents have enough on their plates already). You can join, and volunteer with us to assist fundraisers, organizing a dance, or a spaghetti dinner. You can join and complain! Tell us what you’d like to see at the school, what is needed and what is missing. You can join and get a seat at the table when PTA meets to plan our budget. We look forward to any level of involvement from you. Please join the Grant PTA today.
