Parents are encouraged to be a part of their child's education. Parents can attend parent classes to help with issues in the areas of child rearing and academics. The Parent and Community Outreach coordinators will host most of the classes offered, however, in some cases these classes will be hosted by teachers or as part of offerings from organizations. To request a class topic, contact the coordinator at your child’s school. Other events such as Family Nights provide chances for the parents and students to work together to complete activities. Teachers are available at these events to help or answer questions.
Volunteering is another way of being involved in a child's education. Community members and parents are invited to be involved. Contact the schools directly if you would like more information. All volunteers are required to fill out a name-based background form.
The Title I schools are required to involve parents in the annual review of the school’s Parent and Family Engagement Policy and School Parent Compact as well as asking for suggestions on how Title I Parent and Family Engagement funds are spent. The members of the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) assist with making these decisions.
