I have read American Prep’s school mission, philosophy and vision. I commit to supporting American Prep as it pursues fulfillment of its mission.
I understand that American Prep is a charter school, and as part of its vision seeks to offer parents meaningful volunteer opportunities. I understand American Prep would like to encourage our family to provide volunteer service each year we have children enrolled at American Prep.
I will promote the vision of American Prep by using positive communication, courtesy and respect when interacting with staff, students, parents and anyone else in the school community. I will follow American Prep’s communication model, specifically, I will take any concerns I have directly to the person most able to successfully address those concerns, and not to others who cannot address the concern. I will work in a cooperative manner to promote the school mission.
I understand that my child will be required to follow the school dress code, and I will ensure that my child is in compliance with the school dress code policy.
I understand that a major focus of American Prep’s mission is to help my child gain knowledge and a love of learning. I will support this effort by providing a place and a regular time each school day in which my child can engage in learning activities, including homework, in our home. I will review my child’s Learning Plan daily and will work with my child to ensure assignments are completed in a timely manner.
I understand that American Prep will not be providing transportation to and from school, and that we (parents) are responsible to drop off and pick up our child each school day within the specified time frame published in the school handbook.
I understand that American Prep has a goal of 95% attendance for students. I will work to schedule appointments and lessons outside of school hours. I will bring my student to school on time. I understand that if my child is absent 10 consecutive school days he/she may be un-enrolled from American Prep, according to state guidelines.
I understand that volunteers may be asked to grade student papers, and any volunteers who do so will be instructed in school confidentiality guidelines. Students will generally correct their own work, but in some rare cases may exchange papers to correct them. Volunteers have no claim to intellectual property created during their volunteer service at American Prep.
