Parents are encouraged to be a part of their child's education. One way of doing that, is to attend parent workshops. These classes are designed to help parents with issues ranging from child rearing to the education of their child. New this year, out Parent and Community Outreach coordinators will host classes written by the Parent Institute. To request a specific class topic, contact the coordinator on your campus. Other events such as Family Nights provide opportunities for the parents and students to work together as they complete current educational activities. Teachers are also available at these events to assist or answer questions.
Being a volunteer is another way of being involved in a child's education. We encourage family and community involvement. Contact the individual campuses if you would like more information about volunteering. All volunteers are required to fill out a name-based background form.
The Title I campuses are required to involve parents in the annual review of the campus Parent Involvement Policy and School Parent Compact as well as make decisions on how Title I Parent Involvement Funds are spent. These decisions are accomplished by the members of the Parent Advisory Council (PAC)
