Does our school have any sort of campus decision-making committee, and are parents allowed to participate?
Our school has a Campus Improvement Committee (CIC) that meets monthly to make decisions that affect the school as a whole, such as budget, staffing and curriculum issues. The CIC is also often asked to provide input to the district-level decision-making committee. The CIC is made up of teachers, administrators, community members, business leaders and parents. Meetings are open to anyone who would like to observe the process.
Are there other opportunities to be involved in my child's education?
We offer Saturday workshops each month for our parents. These workshops provide useful information for helping your students succeed by helping them at home. Each workshop is for 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. We also have three big night events each year: Literacy Night, Bilingual Parent Night, and S.T.E.A.M. night. These workshops showcase what your student has been learning and the exciting instruction that takes place at PWE!
