Calling All SDUSD SSC Members and Stakeholders: SEND US YOUR PROPOSED 2017/18 SPSA’S for a DISTRICT DEEDS REVIEW!!!



Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)

District Deeds is excited to announce the a free service for all ALL San Diego Unified School District )SDUSD) Stakeholders…

The District Deeds SPSA  Review Panel!

The District Deeds SPSA Review Panel includes David Page, Francine Maxwell, Frank Engle, along with other Parents/Community Members and confidential sources including Classified, Certificated and Administrative SDUSD personnel.

The District Deeds SPSA Review Panel has decades of experience in reviewing SPSA’s and other SDUSD budget and planning documents.

All Principals should have already provided School Site Stakeholders a complete SPSA created by School Site Stakeholders and reviewed/approved by all SSC’s within the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) to prepare and submit Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) documents.

All that is required for you to receive the free District Deeds SPSA Review is to send District Deeds a copy of your newly created 2017/2018 SPSA.

We will send back to you our review with a general assessment and transparency rating.

Take the following 2 steps to get and send to District Deeds your School Site SPSA document that has already been submitted to the SDUSD Central Office:

Step 1

Send an email to the Principal at your school and ask for them to email you a copy or contact the members of your School Site Council for a copy.


Go to your school and ask for a copy in the front office.

There is nothing secretive or confidential about the SPSA, in fact many school site stakeholders have already received a copy to review so you have the right as a SDUSD Stakeholder and Taxpayer to receive a copy of the same document as the SSC.

Step 2

If you receive a copy via email from your school, send it to  

If you receive a hard copy of the SPSA from your school, send an email to and we will make arrangements with you to meet with you and make a copy for ourselves.

If the Principal or school staff refuse to give you a copy, please let us know via email and we will help you acquire a copy.

The District Deeds SPSA Review Panel realizes that as a SDUSD Stakeholder,  it is extremely difficult to clearly understand all the requirements of an SPSA, let alone know whether the proposal (generally prepared completely by SDUSD employees) “is a blueprint to improve the academic performance of all students”.

That is why the District Deeds SPSA Review Panel is offering to help.

Here is a little background for our newer SDUSD Stakeholders regarding SPSA’s:

The “Role of the SSC” is very clear according to the California Department of Education (CDE):

The SPSA is a school site document that “is a blueprint to improve the academic performance of all students” according to the California Department of Education (CDE) It is to be developed by the SSC with input from school site advisory groups like the English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC), the Governance Advisory Committee (GAC), Instructional Leadership Team (ILT).  Other groups like School Foundations, PTA/PTO, and community groups have the opportunity to provide their input both directly at meetings and indirectly through correspondence.

Here is the CDE definition of the SSC Role:

“California Education Code (EC) Section 64001 requires that an SSC develop the SPSA. The SSC’s responsibilities include approving the plan, recommending it to the local governing board for approval, monitoring its implementation, and evaluating the effectiveness of the planned activities at least annually.”

The CDE is also very clear what resources should be used when developing an SPSA:


As you can see from the diagram above, School Site Stakeholders are supposed to have a large role in the development and deployment of SPSA’s.

As part of the District Deeds support of REAL family and community engagement, we look forward to receiving your SPSA’s!!!
