One of the most important decision-making groups at Forest Hill is our elected School Site Council. The Council is composed of five parent and community members and five representatives from the school’s staff.

The Council reviews the school plan annually, establishes a budget, makes modifications as necessary, and assists in the evaluation of the school’s programs. Members are elected by the groups that they represent. Parent and community representatives are elected for a two-year term and may stand for re-election upon the completion of each term.  If you are interested in running for the Council, please submit your name to the front office by Friday, August 31. The voting ballot will be sent home on Friday, September 7 and returned to the front office by Monday, September 10.  The elected council member will be notified and his/her name posted in the front office on Friday, September 14.

There is currently 1 seat to be filled. The candidate receiving the most votes will serve on the Council as a parent/community representative. Write-in candidates receiving votes have an equal opportunity to be elected or serve as alternates on the Council. We meet 4 times throughout the year on weekday afternoons at 3:00 pm.

Aneri Shah (5th grader) wanted to do something before she left Forest Hill and moved onto Rolling Hills. She created signs to help students know which items go in the garbage and recycle cans. Thank you Aneri for working so hard to support our efforts to be green and mindful of the Earth. We will miss you and your family!

A Message from Superintendent

Dear CUSD Families:
As another school year closes, I want to thank you for being our partner in providing the highest quality educational programs possible for all of our students. 
We made great strides in 2017-18, refining our focus on preparing students for the rigors, challenges and opportunities of their future. I look forward to working together on that important job in the coming school year.
For now, I thank you, and I hope you and your family will take the time to enjoy some well-deserved summer fun.

A Message from Superintendent Shelly Viramontez, Ed.D.

We want students to begin to own their own learning, be empowered, and actively engage in their education. For that reason, we must give students a voice and hear directly from them about what they like, want and feel they need in their school experience.

To gather that input, we chose a Student Voice ThoughtExchange, an easy-to-use and interpret method with questions for our students in grades 3-8. chart of participation dataNearly all of them participated in the April 2018 online forum, sharing their thoughts and ideas with us and each other. The district- and school-level results are available online and from your child's school. They offer valuable information for school and district plans aimed at providing students with an education beyond the expected.
