Parent Expectations & Involvement

Parents/Guardians are expected to adhere to the following expectations in order to facilitate a positive and successful educational experience at CCCS. The major objective of Independent Study is to provide a voluntary educational alternative for students.
  • Make sure that the student attends all scheduled meetings with teachers and all mandatory assessments on time.
  • Make sure student attends teacher appointments and labs for a minimum of six hours per week.
  • Arrange safe and reliable transportation to and from school (Regional Transit stickers are provided for student IDs).
  • Supervise students at home, making sure that all assignments are completed thoroughly, correctly, and with academic integrity.
  • If your student cannot attend a meeting with his or her teacher, the teacher must be contacted before the appointment time to discuss another arrangement for fulfilling attendance obligations.
  • Keep staff/teacher aware of changes to phone number or address.
  • Promptly return calls from the teacher and/or school.
  • Contact the teacher with any questions or concerns about assignments and student progress.
  • Follow through with courses of action agreed upon with school personnel with regards to the student’s academic and/or behavioral progress.
  • In the case of a prolonged or serious illness or injury, contact the teacher and/or vice principal to discuss alternative arrangements for assignments and attendance.
  • Behave and dress appropriately while on the school campus.
  • Treat teachers, staff, students, and other parents with appropriate kindness and respect.
  • Ensure students maintain campus and school materials with respect. Parents are liable for damage and loss of materials, technology, and campus resources.
  • Honesty and integrity are expected of parents in regards to all assignments and communications.
  • Parents have the right to appeal any decision about student placement, school program, or transfer by first contacting the supervising teacher and/or vice principal, then contacting the principal. If not satisfied with the results of this communication, the parent/guardian may contact Gateway Community Charters.

Parent Involvement

Parents/Guardians are their children’s first and most influential teachers. Sustained parent involvement in the education of their children contributes greatly to student achievement and a positive school environment.
Our goal is to develop meaningful opportunities for parents/guardians to be involved at school and in school activities and for parents/guardians to be consulted and participate in the planning, design, implementation, and evaluation of the parent involvement program. Parents/guardians shall be notified of their rights to be informed about and to participate in their children's education and of the opportunities available to them to do so.
