School Site Council

Foothill's School Site Council is a committed group that helps make decisions to support school programs, materials and budget. It is comprised of teachers, parents, students and administrators. The council meets once a month.

The School Site Council is an advisory committee to the school. It is the duty of this committee to oversee and manage the school-based coordinated programs (supported by state funds) and the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The council sets goals for improving student achievement and determines how some discretionary funds the school receives will be used to improve academic performance of all students.  In addition, the School Site Council reviews and approves the Comprehensive Safe School Plan that is updated every year.

Council members are appointed by the council or elected by the school's parents, students and staff. Each council member has the power of one vote on the council. Terms last for two school years. Council members are volunteers; they are not paid for their work.

All council meetings are open to the public. Meeting notices are posted at least 72 hours in advance of each monthly meeting and can be found linked below.

Election and/or application forms for the School Site Council are available in early August.

Linked below is the School Site Council Bylaws, the running agenda for the School Site Council meetings, and the link to the monthly meetings if any members of the public would like to attend.
