The Rancho Romero School Site Council (SSC) sets and measures academic improvement strategies and expenditures. SSC also approves and monitors implementation of the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The 12-member board is comprised of the school principal, six parents, four teachers and one staff member.
School Site Council materials such as agenda, minutes, survey results, and plans can be found here


SSC develops and approves programs to help Rancho meet its SPSA objectives. SSC-approved programs are funded primarily by parent and community donations to the Rancho Romero Education Fund (RREF). Thank you to all who donate to RREF throughout the year. Your generosity makes these important programs possible for Rancho students.
Classroom Para-Professionals ("Paras")
Para-professionals support teachers and students in grades TK-5. They work with students in small groups or with individuals in areas such as reading, writing and mathematics. They also support the primary teacher in areas such as preparation of classroom materials, providing positive reinforcement to the children and some clerical work as needed. For 2021-2022, Rancho has six (6) para-professionals. 
Para-Professionals are funded by RREF. 
Reading Intervention
The Reading Intervention Program supports students struggling to acquire the essential knowledge and skills needed to read at grade level. The program is provided by one part-time certificated Reading Specialist and one part-time classified Instructional Aide, supporting grades K-5.
The Reading Intervention Program is funded by RREF.
The Library Media Program is supported by our Library Media Coordinator who is responsible for performing a variety of complex, specialized duties in support of a school library including the selection, acquisition, circulation, maintenance and distribution of books, instructional materials and technology.  The LMC also assists students and teachers in the use of library/media resources. Additional functions include scheduling classes, training library volunteers, coordinating book fairs and author presentations, and maintaining a budget that serves the needs and interests of students in transitional kindergarten through fifth grade. 
Every class in grades TK-5 visits the library one time every 2 weeks. 
RREF funds 12 hours of this position. 
All students in grades K-5 receive additional math support from a part-time certificated math teacher and one part-time classified Instructional Assistant.
The Math Intervention Program is funded by RREF.
