Student Advisory committeeOur students at JMMS continue to ensure their voices are shaping the future of our District. The Superintendent Student Advisory Committee (SSAC) met recently to review the results of our student survey and to help brainstorm ways to improve our District. Our students discussed the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) goals for AUSD and shared their feedback on how we can improve our schools. They offered honest feedback and were courageous in sharing their ideas. Many of their ideas will be part of our new LCAP and will definitely have an impact on improving opportunities for our students.
