Safe School Plan 2015-2016
Principal’s Safety Assurance Statement
Foothills High School
The Foothills High School Safe School Plan is written and designed to ensure the safety of all students and staff and to create and maintain a positive and nurturing school climate. Creating a safe school plan is a long-term, comprehensive process developed and approved by the Safe Schools Committee and School Site Council. This vital document is to be used by school personnel to ensure the safety of all students and staff. Foothills High School is a safe alternative high school environment on a day-to-day basis, due to the strong commitment of teachers, staff, students, and community. One of the goals of the staff of FHS is to connect students to the school community and to provide connections for students who feel isolated or are experiencing problems. All stakeholders work together to create an environment where students and staff feel truly connected.
Three essential components were addressed while writing the comprehensive school plan and include:
Characteristics of Students and Staff
Foothills High School administration, office staff and security team monitor progress throughout the school year to ensure compliance with the California Education code, according to governing board policies.
Through these three components, Foothills High School offers help to students who are experiencing problems with academic, social, or at-risk behavior and hopes to make a difference in the lives of all of our valuable, at-risk students, helping them become successful and productive citizens.
