The Pilot Schools Steering Committee (PSSC) is responsible for monitoring the proposal application process, including reviewing and approving all Request for Proposals to establish Pilot Schools.  The PSSC makes recommendations to the LAUSD Board of Education for final approval for a school to become a Pilot School site.  In addition, the PSSC ensures Pilot Schools meet the yearly benchmarks they have set for increased student performance, and is involved in the accountability as part of the School Review process.  PSSC membership is comprised of representatives from LAUSD, AALA, UTLA, and community organizations appointed by other members of the committee.
