Parents are strongly encouraged to contribute by participating and volunteering 30 hours per year. AJJCS will provide many opportunities for parents to volunteer in ways which reflect their own skills, interest, and talents, as well as taking into consideration classroom/program needs and the constraints of family, work, and other commitments outside of school. The involvement of parents and families ensures that students, educators and parents partner together to make the school a safe, nurturing and inclusive community.
No child will be excluded from AJJCS activities due to the failure of his or her parent or legal guardian to fulfill the encouraged 30 hours of annual participation. Parent involvement is not a requirement for acceptance to, or continued enrollment at the Charter School.
Parents, students, teachers and staff will participate and collaborate with SHCS through direct partnerships and meetings as well as through the AJJCS Advisory Committee. The purpose of the AAC is to bring parents, students and staff together to accomplish goals that will enhance our school for the benefit of the children’s needs and to build on relations. The AAC will serve on a volunteer basis, to encourage and coordinate parent involvement in school activities, fundraising, and advising the SHCS Board of Directors on any and all matters related to the strengthening of the Charter School community. Parent participation will play a vital role in the effectiveness of the program.
AJJCS' current plan for the 2020-21 school year is to run a hybrid program which will include students attending school in-person two or three days per week alternating Mondays and independent school work to be completed on the days they do not attend school in-person. Siblings will be assigned to the same group. Please see calendar below.
AJJCS will take precautions to ensure the safety of students and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage families to follow the CDC, CDE, and HCOE guidelines. We will practice frequent handwashing and social distancing. The school building will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized daily.
