A parent/guardian’s participation in their child’s education is important to his/her student’s achievement. Therefore, as a parent/guardian, I will support my child’s learning and I will:

2.     Check that daily homework is completed and make sure that my child completes all assignments when he/she is absent from school.

3.     Volunteer to assist in designated school activities.

4.     Participate in decisions to help my child succeed at school (to include:  parent-teacher conferences and other meetings upon request).

5.     Stay informed about my child’s education by:  communicating with the school; reading notices from the school or the school district; and responding when requested.

6.     Participate on school committees such as CSR, PTA/PTO, and the Title I Parent Activities Planning Committee, as my schedule permits.
