Opportunities for Parent Involvement

There are many ways to get involved and make a difference at Ponderosa High School.  We encourage you as parents to take an active role in what is going on at your child's school.  Whether you participate in our  SAC, assist with our fundraisers, join our Booster Clubs, or simply volunteer, we encourage you to take an active role in the many happenings at PHS!


The purpose of the SAC is to inform, encourage and provide opportunities for parent and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the school’s instructional program and quality improvement processes. The SAC makes recommendations concerning the school’s Performance, Improvement, Priority Improvement, or Turnaround plan, and meets at least quarterly to discuss implementation of the school’s plan and other progress pertinent to the school’s accreditation contract with the Board of Education. Final decision-making authority rests with the principal or other person or group receiving the recommendation from the SAC (e.g., The Superintendent, District Accountability Committee (“DAC”) or Board of Education).

The School Accountability Committee (SAC) has two (2) openings for parents or guardians of Ponderosa students in the 2018-2019 school year.
