We will look to actively engage and work with our families every step of the way. In our school this will take place at two-levels—in each Schoolhouse and schoolwide. Each Schoolhouse will form its own Schoolhouse Family Committee (SFC) made of up grown-ups and other stakeholders connected with the students who make up that particular Schoolhouse. The SFCs will work closely with the teachers to arrange volunteers, organize field trips and plan other activities that will enhance the learning environment and opportunity for the Schoolhouse. Additionally, each SFC (together with the Schoolhouse teacher), may nominate two members to the Family Council, which will meet plan schoolwide activities, events, etc., and will formally work directly with the Partners Council on community wide initiatives and/or concerns. The Family Council will also have the opportunity to make recommendations to the Partners for which parents/guardians they should nominate to serve on the school’s Board of Trustees.
