School SITE Council

SITE Council is important to the successful completion of the mission and vision of Humboldt Unified School District. 
Per Arizona Revised Statute 13-351, each school shall establish a school council. A governing board may delegate to a school council the responsibility to develop a curriculum and may delegate any additional powers that are reasonably necessary to accomplish decentralization. The school council shall take into consideration the ethnic composition of the local community and, except as provided in § 15-352, shall consist of the following members:
  1. Parents or guardians of pupils enrolled in the school. A parent or guardian who is employed by the school district may serve as a member of the school council if the parent or guardian is not employed at the same school where the parent or guardian's child is enrolled.
  2. Teachers.
  3. Non-certified employees.
  4. Community members.
  5. Pupils, if the school is a high school
  6. The principal of the school.

The SITE Council shall make decisions for the site that pertain to school-wide issues that include but are not limited to: Discretionary Site Budget; Use of non-designated tax credit funds: The school improvement plan. The council is a group of parents, staff, members of our community, administration, and students (at the high school level).

This oversight is not only helpful, but also necessary as many of the decisions that are made require feedback and oversight.

If you wish to get involved, please contact the site directly. To review previous agendas/minutes, please visit the About Us section on the individuals site's page. Open Meeting Law applies; All meetings of any public body shall be public meetings and all persons so desiring shall be permitted to attend and listen to the deliberations and proceedings.
