Welcome

  • Parental Involvement

    Parents are an integral part of our community. Parents help our school by supporting athletic, academic, and social events.  Our School Site Council (SSC) and English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) include parents members who provice input regarding the Single Plan for Student Achievement.  Parents participate as members of the School Safety Committee, helping identify opportunities for parents to participate on campus.  Viking parents are also celebrated for their contributions at sport events, club events and activities such as homecoming.

    We have a full time community liaison.  She dedicates her time to coordinating a variety of programs that aim to increase parent involvement including a weekly parent group and Strengthening Families, a nationally recognized program for parents and youth.

    Opportunities for parents to interact with North Salinas High School also include involvement in specialised parents education nights hosted by the Health Academy, AVID and the NSHS. 

    Guidance team.  Parent information nights range in the topics from graduation requirements and credit recovery to how to pay for college. Presentations also often include guest speakers from local universities and other agencies.  NSHS hosts an alumni day, when former Vikings share their personal journey to varied careers. parents also engage in supporting North Salinas High School seniors by volunteering for Mock Interview panels.

    We also have parents that represent student interests beyond the classroom. NSHS parents booster clubs include Band Booster, The Future Farmers of America Boosters, Athletic Booster Club, and the Japanese Club, to list a few. Parents are also active on the School Safety Committee.  We welcome parent support and engagement in the Viking Community.
