School Site Council

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.

2020-2021 Approved Programs

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 2020-2021, Rancho has seven (7) para-professionals. Each class receives 6.25+ hours of support each week.

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 (Jennifer Wong) 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 per week. 

RREF funds 10 hours of this position in addition to 12 District-funded hours. 


All students in grades K-5 receive additional math support from our part-time Instructional Assistant, Gina Turturici.  She works with students in small groups or with individuals. 

The Instructional Assistant for Math is funded by RREF.
