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 AJJCS through direct partnerships and meetings as well as through the AJJCS School Site Council. The purpose of the SSC is to bring parents, teachers and staff together to accomplish goals that will enhance our school for the benefit of the children’s needs. The SSC will serve on a volunteer basis, to encourage and coordinate parent involvement and advising the SHCS Board of Directors on any and all matters related to the strengthening of the Charter School community. Parent participation plays a vital role in the effectiveness of the AJJCS.
