Parent involvement is included in our Charter and must be accounted for; 40 Volunteer Hours per registered student.
If there are multiple students in your family you will add 10 hours for each additional student. For example, a family with 3 registered students would be asked to participate in 60 hours of volunteer efforts over the course of one school year (40 for the first child, 10 for the second, 10 for the third).
There are many ways to earn Volunteer Hours; participating in school events, donating classroom supplies, monetary donations, etc. For monetary donations, every $10 = 1 hour.
Volunteer hours are usually performed by Parents but we will also accept hours by family and friends who volunteer on your student's behalf. Log these hours the same as you would if you had performed them yourself.
