How parents + care-givers participate -
A Co-operative works well if all members are actively involved with the school. Mandatory co-op responsibilities include:
- Monthly Duty Days: A parent or caregiver (can be a nanny / grandparent etc) is required to do one volunteer shift in the classroom per month (From 9 am to 12/noon).
- Volunteer on a committee: At least one person from each family is required to volunteer on a committee. You can get involved with fundraising, operations, social events, finance, membership, or take on a board role.
- Community Involvement: Parents are also expected to attend a clean up night and annual general meetings throughout the year.
