- Air Quality Update
The smoke from the Camp Fire in Northern California has severely impacted air quality for more than a week and has made managing classrooms and supporting students challenging. The smoke has affected some areas of our large, geographically diverse District more than others and the experts have predicted improving air quality each day this week, but the reality has been much different.
Due to the continued smoke, I have made the decision to close schools on Friday, November 16th. This means that all District schools and departments are closed.

- About the KEF
What is the Kensington Education Foundation?
The Kensington Education Foundation (KEF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, established in 1983, with a mission of delivering academic enrichment programs to Hilltop students. The organization supports educational programs that supplement and extend the academic offerings funded by our school district. The KEF also provides financial resources to help Hilltop School mitigate the impact of changes to academic funding at the state and district level.

- About Site Council
The School Site Council (SSC) is composed of the school principal and 8-10 parents, teachers and other staff selected by their peers, representing all segments of the school community for the common goal of supporting student success. The SSC does this by developing and monitoring the implementation of the schoolâ€™s plan known as the Single Plan for Student Achievement. The SSC also determines how certain funds received by the school for this purpose should be spent.
The SSC members are the principal; teacher representatives; other staff representatives; parents/other community representatives, and student representatives at the secondary level with each group selected by their peers.
