Parents as Partners (Parent Engagement Policy)

The school values the role of parents as their child’s first teacher and welcomes their active involvement in their child’s education. The school believes:
  • Parents are partners and are needed to take active and meaningful role to ensure the success of the school.
  • Parents must be meaningfully and actively engaged in their child’s education and responsible for supporting their child’s learning at home.
  • Parents must also understand what it will take to prepare their child for college.
 
Parents of Baxter High School students are asked to:
  • Support the goals of the school through their voice and through volunteering a minimum of 40 hours per year.*
  • Complete an application for Fee-Waiver/Free & Reduced Price Lunch
  • Attend at least 4 Parent Education Academy Sessions each year
  • Complete an annual parent satisfaction survey
 
Volunteers who serve as parent leaders on a school committee or special activity for the entire school year, or for the duration of a particular project, will automatically earn 20 hours of service credit. Leadership opportunities for parents include, but are not limited to, participation in the following committees:
  • School Coordinating Council
  • School Board of Directors
  • Parent Leadership Network
 

*Not doing volunteer hours or to participating in Charter School’s programs will have no affect on a student’s enrollment, grades, credits or ability to graduate.
