Parents

The Goleta Family School functions as a parent/guardian (“parent”) cooperative. Enrollment of students in the program implies a willingness to be a full participating parent. All parents are expected to complete two parent participation forms at the beginning of each school year. The first is for classroom participation and the second is for tribe (committee) participation.

 

Parents or a designated representative (grandparent, family friend, nanny) are expected to:

  • Participate two hours each week in the classroom for each child enrolled in the program.
        1. Parents/guardians who cannot participate in the classroom are expected to arrange alternate participation activities with the classroom teacher(s).
        2. If a teacher feels the classroom participation is not serving the community, then that parent will be given other responsibilities.
  • Assist with fundraisers.
  • Serve on a PTA tribe and participate fully.
  • Participate in and drive on field trips. ¬†In order to drive students other than their own, parents/guardians need to get a fingerprint clearnace through the Goleta Union School District office (one time only) and file an updated vehicle information form at the beginning of each school year.
  • Take a turn in supplying a healthy community snack for each school day of the academic year, which will be consumed in the area immediately outside the classrooms. ¬†Families will be assigned one week of snack responsibility by the snack coordinator.
  • Attend two mandatory evening events each year.
  • Ensure that your child has transportation to and from school each day, as the Goleta Union School District does not provide transportation.
