Site Council


The Canyon Ridge School Site Council is a semi-autonomous body consisting of parents, teachers, administrators and community members. As mandated by the Dysart Unified School District, the purpose of Site Council is to manage the collection and distribution of public tax expenditure funds donated to the campus. Our by-laws dictate that donated funds be utilized for extra-curricular activities; unless otherwise specified by those making the contribution. The council may also examine school related policies and offer recommendations.

The distribution of tax expenditures is governed by an application process. All requests are examined by the council on a monthly basis and majority vote will decide each pending issue. During the 2020-2021 academic year, the Site Council will focus its efforts on virtual and in-person extra-curricular activities, annual campus events, and all athletics funding. Ongoing fundraising, via community and staff tax credit donations, will also play a prominent role.

All current council members were chosen to serve based on a nomination and annual election process. The members of the Canyon Ridge Site Council are:  Michele Caruso (parent), Ann Mitchell (community member), Melissa Bennett (teacher), Jill Hoppe (principal), Andrew Griesel (assistant principal), Christopher Raso (teacher, council chair). The Site Council will meet via electronic means; until in-person instruction resumes on campus. The dates and times are listed below.
