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 classes written by the Parent Institute. 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. 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 Involvement Policy and School Parent Compact as well as make decisions on how Title I Parent Involvement Funds are spent. The members of the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) assist with making these decisions.
