Site Council

The Sunset Hills' Site Council is a semi-autonomous body consisting of parents, teachers, and administrators.  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.  Periodically, the council also reviews school policies and offers feedback. Our bylaws dictate that donated funds be utilized for extra-curricular activities; unless otherwise specified by those making the contribution.

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 decides each pending issue. For the 2022-2023 academic year, the Site Council will focus its efforts on extra-curricular clubs, athletics funding, and staff compensation for club facilitation offered to learners before or after school. Ongoing fundraising, via community tax credit applications, will also play a prominent role in our activities.

Tax Credit

You can support Sunset Hills Elementary School and receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit.  Choose one of the four categories and a school to support, and 100% of your donation goes to the category and school of your choice.  Arizona Law (ARS 43-1089.01) allows married couples filing jointly a tax credit of up to $400 and individual taxpayers a tax credit of up to $200 when they contribute to extra-curricular activities in public schools. This tax credit is available to all who reside in Arizona and have a tax liability at least equal to that of their donation.  You do not have to be a parent of a child in our school to benefit from this law. Contributions are donated directly to the school.  This means your donations are used directly to support student activities here at Sunset Hills Elementary School.
