Parents, Teachers & Students Association (PTO)
PTO is our Parents, Teachers; Students Organization Our goal is for more parent involvement through activities and events. All money raised will go directly back to our students and classrooms!! Our goal is for SJHS parents to feel welcome, and to contribute whatever time and talent they can to making SAN JOSE HIGH an even better place for our kids to learn.
We work together with our community to provide support for our academic programs and to benefit others. To achieve the high standards set by the staff, parents and students of San Jose High School and PTO require your support. By actively supporting PTO, San Jose High parents can help ensure the continued success of the school and continue to reap the benefits of an unmatched educational experience for students and a valuable cornerstone for the entire community.
Let’s all jump in and help! If you have been waiting for a chance to pitch in and help, this is your year!! If you only have 1 hour per month, that’s wonderful! Parent, teacher, student, and community help at the public schools, benefits everyone.

School Site Council
The School Site Council (SSC) is a group of parents and school staff that has the responsibility of allocating supplemental funds received from the state under the School Improvement Program (SIP). SIP funds enable schools to improve instruction, services, school environment and organization. The law requires that schools establish School Site Councils in order to receive and spend the extra funding provided by SIP.
The SSC works with the principal and staff to develop, review and evaluate these school improvement programs. The SCC is also designed to provide increased parent involvement, understanding and improvement of the school’s educational program. If you have an interest in participating in the SSC or attending the meetings, please contact the school administration.
The School English Learners Advisory Council (SELAC) and the District English Learners Advisory Council (DELAC) are composed of teachers and parents whose main concerns are the welfare of students who are English language learners.
SELAC is a school-based committee whose purpose is to provide advice to the principal and staff regarding programs and services for English learners and to provide information to parents. DELAC is made up of representatives from each school’s English Learner Advisory Committee, DELAC’s role is to advise the district on programs and services for English learner students. For more information, please contact our school administration.
