The Northgate Education Fund is our Parent Faculty Club's sole fundraiser for the 2016-17 school year. Your generous contributions to this fund support important components in your child's education--including technology, additional class sections, counselors, and much more. The Fund's Goal for this year is $140K. We are currently $20K short of our goal and we need your support.
Many of you made a mental note at registration to go online to contribute to the Fund. This is your gentle reminder to do so, and that we still need and appreciate your contribution! Every student benefits from your Education Fund contribution and 100% goes back into the school.

Thank you for making a difference!
10 Parents needed for
Northgate’s WASC Report
2 one-hour Wed-afternoon meetings per month
from April, 2016 to February, 2017
The accreditation by the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC) is used by schools to monitor student learning and set school improvement goals. ACS WASC accreditation is an ongoing cycle of quality. Schools assess their program and the impact on student learning with respect to the ACS WASC criteria and other accreditation factors.
Every six years, accredited schools conduct a self-study and host a self-study visit. The self-study process culminates in the refinement of a schoolwide action plan. Throughout the accreditation cycle, schools are expected to address the schoolwide action plan and demonstrate evidence of acceptable student achievement and school improvement.
For Northgate, this ACS WASC process will assist us as we engage in an in-depth look at what currently exists and what needs to be improved upon in relation to student learning on campus. We need parents, along with teachers and students, to be a part of this year-long endeavor as we go through our self-study.
Please consider this important parent representation to better Northgate’s future for our students and community. Contact Jon Fey for meeting information.
