School Board of Trustees
Our Board of Trustees provides guidance and strategic planning and develops school policy in accordance with Foothill School's Mission statement. The board works in partnership with the Central California Conference (CCC) to hire and supervise staff, implement curriculum, oversee the facility and implement Board policy.
The Board consists of voting Trustees who are nominated and elected by the Milpitas Seventh-day Adventist Church. In addition, there are five ex-officio members of the Board: CCC Education Department Superintendent, Foothill's Principal, Milpitas Discoveryland's Director, Milpitas SDA Church's pastor and the Parent Teacher Organization leader. Board meetings are held regularly each month. Board meetings are open to members of the Foothill community.
Three standing subcommittees make recommendations and report to the Board. They are the Finance, Marketing and Personnel Committees. Other ad-hoc committees may be created and dissolved as necessary. Members of these committees may consist of some members of the Board and/or members of the Foothill community.
Parent Teacher Organization Council
All parents automatically becomes members of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). The Milpitas SDA church nominates and elects the leader of the PTO who is also an ex-officio member of the Board of Trustees. Monthly meetings are held to discuss and plan upcoming events and address parents' questions and concerns.
Foothill's PTO enriches the school by providing school-wide events such as the Fall Festival and Spring Fling, celebrations, curriculum support, fundraisers and support of the day-to-day educational experiences of the students and parents.
