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.
For the 2020-21 school year, AJJCS has run a hybrid program which will include students attending school in-person in the Yellow Group on Tuesday and Thursday or in the Green Group on Wednesday and Friday. Mondays are Distance Leaning Days for ALL students. Students attend Enrichment Days on the off days from the Hybrid Program. Students are to complete independent school work on the days they do not attend school in-person. Siblings are assigned to the same group. Parents have a choice for a full distance learning option. Next year, AJJCS will be full time in person, 5 days per week, 8:30 AM to 3 PM.
Please see calendar below.
AJJCS takes 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 practice frequent handwashing and social distancing. The school building is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized daily.
