SRACS Parent/Community Roles

This charter recognizes that students and schools are more successful when parents, staff, students, and the community work together to support and foster learning for students.

Therefore, at Santa Rosa Accelerated Charter School, the education of each child is a joint venture between the parent, student, community, and school. To support this goal:

1. Parents/guardians, staff, and community partners will be elected to serve on the school's advisory committee.

2. Parents and guardians who enroll their children in the school will accept their responsibility for their child's education. Therefore they agree to:

  • Regularly discuss with their child the importance of education and school.
  • Keep in regular contact with their child's teacher(s) regarding student progress.
  • Attend school sponsored parent meetings regarding the school's programs.
  • Consistently support their child in completion of school work and preparation for assessments.

3. Parents and guardians will agree to participate in the life of the school. These service opportunities and hours will annually be determined by the school's advisory committee. Such service hours must be flexible and varied so as not to create barriers for a diverse student population. In addition, for parents who work several jobs to support their family, options of mentoring or community support must be available. Varied service opportunities could include such things as classroom assistance, field trip transportation, fund raising support, and advisory committee work, tutoring, and reading with students.

4. Staff will provide outreach to students and their parents to create two way communication and participation. Ways to meet this goal could include:

  • Parent Education Nights
  • Family-School Nights
  • Regular phone calls home to share student performance
  • Explaining rubrics and other feedback tools and then sending written feedback home regarding various forms of assessments.
  • Holding parent-teacher conferences.
