Governing board duties; school site council
The governing board of each school district shall:
(a) Ensure that the principal of every school receives information covering the provisions of this chapter, and provides such information to teachers, other school personnel, parents, and, in secondary schools, pupils.
(b) Adopt policies to ensure that prior to scheduled phase-in, a school site council as described in Section 52012 is established at each school site to consider whether or not it wishes the local school to participate in the school improvement program. The board shall ensure that all interested persons, including, but not limited to, the principal, teachers, other school personnel, parents, and, in secondary schools, pupils have an opportunity to meet in public to establish such council.
Upon the vote of a majority of the persons represented pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 52012 and a majority of the persons represented pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 52012, the council may request the governing board to exclude the school from participation in the school improvement program authorized by this chapter. If the governing board accepts such request, the schedule developed pursuant to subdivision (c) of this section shall be amended to provide for reconsideration of this action at the school no later than three years from the date of the decision not to participate. Final determination as to whether a local school will participate in the school improvement program shall rest with the local governing board.
(c) Establish a plan for the phase-in of schools. Such plan shall ensure that at least one-half of the schools that are participating in any year are schools with the greatest numbers or concentrations of educationally disadvantaged youth until all such schools participate.
