Parent Involvement, Committee's, Parent Communication

Throughout the year committees meets to discuss Exeter Union High School.  Please refer to the site calendar for upcoming meetings that you can attend to give input regarding the school site.  There are also numerous booster organizations for clubs and athletics that you can also be a part of.  If you have any questions or want to know how to get involved contact the office. You can also participate in the school’s student and parent/family surveys to make sure your voice is heard.
School Site Council:

Each school must have an elected School Site Council (SSC) to represent parents, students, community members, and school staff in the school governance process. The SSC has a number of important responsibilities, including:

  • Reviewing and analyzing student achievement data,
  • gathering community input,
  • helping develop the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) and the school site budget,
  • and monitoring the implementation of the plan and budget.

These are the steps in the school planning process:

  • Review data about your school and students and reflect on how your school is doing to support students to succeed. Examples of information you can review include:
    • Academic assessments, such as SBAC/CAASPP, Fountas & Pinnell, CELDT, writing assessments, and FEP reclassification data
    • Attendance, out-of-class referrals, and suspension data
    • Student and family school climate surveys
  • Based on that data, set goals and identify priorities for the next school year. What are the programs, services, and other resources your school wants to focus on, to reach these goals?.
  • In the fall, the process is repeated, once enrollment numbers and state budgets have been finalized.  Look for those dates to be updated on this page in late August or early September. 
SSC Agenda and Minutes can be accessed here.
English Learning Advisory Committee:
Each California Public School from Kindergarten through grade 12, with 21 or more English learners must form a functional English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). The ELAC is a committee for parents or other community members who want to advocate for English Learners. The purpose of the ELAC (or subcommittee, if appropriate) is to advise the principal and school staff on programs and services for English learners and the SSC on the development of the Single School Plan for Student Achievement
