Parent Involvement Policy & Programs

Parent Involvement Policy:

West Oak Lane Charter School requires parents to be partners in the education of their children. The key to student success is the active participation of parents in the school. The important task of educating a child calls for the school, the student, and the parents to all work together to ensure success. Parents are encouraged to volunteer and participate in various school activities. Parents wishing to volunteer or visit should contact the school office or classroom teacher in advance of their coming to assist. We hope to see you often. WOLCS works in partnership with parents and families to ensure that students are fully engaged in their learning that their families feel connected to WOLCS and every parent / guardian has the opportunity to become involved with their child’s education in meaningful ways. As a matter of Board policy, a strong program of communications between home and school is maintained in order to accomplish these objectives. At WOLCS parental involvement means the participation of parents/guardians in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving students’ academic learning and other school activities. WOLCS is committed to delivering a high quality education to all students, and to having interactions with students and their families that are characterized by support and respect. WOLCS recognizes its obligation to assign productive homework that allows students to reinforce and practice skills learned in class. We treat all members of the school community fairly, and work persistently to provide - structured opportunities for parent and family involvement

Parent Involvement Programs:

WOLCS has put into operation programs, activities and procedures for the involvement of parents and families that include interim reports, and report cards that are shared at quarterly report card conferences. The school also is engaged in ongoing consultation with parents and families of students enrolled at the school through on-line surveys. Parents may complete the surveys during the report card conferences or via the following URL: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2015_2016TitleI

Through the WOLCS Parent Organization a.k.a. Families Being Involved or FBI, parents / guardians will have the opportunity to serve on advisory committees that consider and help to develop new ways to engage students and their families in learning, and to assure greater levels of student success. FBI meetings are held at the school once each month on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. If you are interested in becoming a part of the FBI please send your information to Angela Case at acase@wolcs.org.
