PFSO Board 2019-2020
- PFSO is the Parent Faculty Student Organization at Foothill Technology High School. Our mission is to support students and staff through fundraising as well as active volunteering and participation. We support students by providing funds for the science department, Speech & Debate, Cheers for Children, Grad Nigh, graduation, Care Network, senior gifts, and AP exams. For faculty and staff, we provide enrichment funds, classroom supplies at our annual Teacher Tower event, a welcome back lunch in the fall, a winter breakfast, and end of year breakfast. We also host Staff Appreciation Week in the spring.

ATTENDANCE INFORMATION 2019-2020
Foothill Technology High School staff and students work together to create an atmosphere of accountability and responsibility. Every student will make choices that demonstrate the values of accountability and prompt, consistent attendance. The FTHS policy is intended to promote attendance in class as the highest priority.
The primary responsibility of the student is to be in class to maximize their opportunities for success. Excessive tardiness and absences have a direct correlation to poor student performance and are detrimental to the learning environment. Parents/guardians, students, teachers and administrators all have shared responsibility to ensure that a quality education is priority. The FTHS attendance policy is directed toward achieving that goal.
