• Becoming actively involved in education at the local level can help influence the direction and quality of learning for all students. Children are dependent on an involved and caring community to have a positive impact on their lives. Your involvement can make a world of difference in the life of a child.

    The Board of Education adopted Board Policy 1240 Volunteer Assistance, to ensure our students have the right to learn in a safe environment and remain protected from any form of misconduct by adults on our schools’ campuses. The Board is cognizant of the critical role parents, guardians and community members play in the education of our students. Parents, guardians and community members are encouraged to share their special knowledge and abilities with our students. At the same time, schools must be able to operate with full confidence that our students are working with adults who are there to serve their needs. The new policy is a means to ensure student safety and not a deterrent for parent/guardian and community involvement in our schools.
