There are many ways that employees, parents, and community members can be engaged, active partners in ensuring educational excellence in our school community. In addition to districtwide avenues for involvement, all of our schools look for parent or community engagement through parent-teacher groups and/or volunteers. For school-specific opportunities, please reach out to the school office.
