Membership in the Parent-Faculty Organization is open to all parent(s)/guardian(s) of Uni High students as well as to the faculty of the school. All parent(s)/guardian(s) pay annual dues as part of their students’ fees. The level of dues is determined by the PFO on recommendation of the PFO Board of Directors.

Meetings of the Board, open to all parent(s)/guardian(s) and faculty, usually are held at 7:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month in Room 109 of the school. Those attending are asked to enter through the north door.
Student-Faculty Advisory Committee (SFAC)
The Student-Faculty Advisory Committee consists of representatives of the student body, the faculty, and the administration. Members of the committee propose solutions to concerns that directly affect the student and faculty bodies of the school. The committee serves as a forum for student-faculty discussion and to monitor student-faculty interactions. SFAC meetings are open to all students and faculty. Student Council elects a student representative to serve as a liaison between Student Council and SFAC. The representative is not voting member of either Student Council or SFAC.
Student Council serves as the governing body concerning student activities and interests. StudCo meets every Thursday at lunch in room 109. Primary roles and responsibilities include: Allocation of student funds, organizing and managing class events and activities, approval of student events and activities, approval of use of StudCo resources for student events and activities, granting or denying permission to form a club or student organization, cleaning up at orientation and disorientation picnics.
