School Site Council

The primary purpose of the School Site Council is reviewing and updating the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA), which aligns to the district and school goals. Site Council meets once a month throughout the year, and meetings are open to the North School community. The Council is composed of the principal, four staff members, and five parents. Parent members serve two‑year terms, with (usually) two or three of the positions becoming vacant at the end of the school year.

The Purpose of the School Site Council Shall Be:

A. Develop and recommend the Single Plan for Student Achievement (“SPSA”).

B. Have on-going responsibility to review, with the principal and teachers, the implementation of the SPSA and to assess periodically the effectiveness of the program.

C. Annually review the SPSA, establish a new school improvement budget consistent with the SPSA and Education Code and, if necessary, make modifications to the SPSA to reflect changing improvement needs and priorities.

D. Take other actions as required by the Education Code.

More than two decades of research findings are unequivocal: the most important aspect of a school in terms of student learning is teacher quality, and our teachers are among the best!

Students in K-2 have access to a reading specialist. 3rd-5th grade students participate in our Innovation Labs where they create and explore. K-5 students participate in music classes, and 4th-8th grade students have access to instrument instruction. Spanish instruction begins in 4th grade, and Mandarin is offered in our middle school. All of our schools have a dedicated counselor, teacher librarian, physical educator, and more!

Through the generosity of donors, the Hillsborough Schools Foundation pledged $3.5 million to our schools for this school year. Last year's Fund-A-Need raised funds for traffic and safety. Thank you!
