Parent involvement is crucial to improving student achievement.
Uni High has an active parent community. Parents retain four seats (25%) on University High School's School Site Council (SSC). The SSC, which is a decision-making council comprised of teachers, students, staff, and parents, meets once a month after school at 3:15pm (check school calendar for exact dates posted soon). Parents and other community members are welcome at these meetings.
Our English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC) is a part of our School Site Council.
In addition to ELAC and SSC, parents serve on our Uni High Charter Governing Council and as part of the Uni High Education Foundation.

Aside from receiving free or reduced-price meals, students who qualify for Title I services also qualify for a variety of other benefits:
Fee Waivers for PSAT, SAT, SAT II (Subject), and ACT tests
Partial Fee Waivers for Advanced Placement (AP) Tests

There are five elected officers that will make decisions and submit recommendations to the School Site Council.

AFFILIATED CHARTER RESOURCES
Students that qualify for free or reduced lunch also qualify for PSAT/SAT/ACT/AP Exam fee waivers and college application fee waivers.
Even if you don’t qualify for free or reduced lunch, it still helps our school if every family fills out the meal application. All of our students benefit from the field trips, library/instructional materials, teachers, and staff funded with Title 1 money.
The meal application qualifies our students for more than just free or reduced lunch. Please fill it out! Deadline is October 6th!
