making foothill a better place
The School Organizational Team (SOT) is a group consisting of Principal Lisa Burkhead, two teachers, three parents, a staff member, and a student representative from Foothill. The student representative, Cole Trickle, has attended two meetings, and has presented a few ideas about how to make Foothill a better and more enjoyable place.
The School Organizational Team’s job is to provide input on the school performance plan and to give advice to the principal on how she can carry out these things. Topics discussed at the meetings were the school’s budget, repairing the tennis and basketball courts, the football field, data concerning students, who will pass this year and who won’t, and semester exams.
“I consider it a main job of mine to make sure that I'm not just representing the ideas and concerns of our fellow students, but also that I am representing the diversity of our student body and the values that transcend those differences,” said Trickle. “Diversity in all of its forms is a strength, and that's something that we don't hear enough in a time like this in the world,” said Trickle. He is glad that he can represent the students, and encourages anyone to email him at firstname.lastname@example.org and to attend the meetings.
