Welcome Parents, Guardians and Families

We welcome families and guardians to join us in preparing today’s students to take charge of America’s future. We recognize that raising children is a team effort, and that students benefit from an educational team involving our school, our community and you.

Research shows that the more parents get involved in their child’s education, the higher level of success that student can achieve. Parent engagement is potent as rocket fuel, and with it, there’s no telling how high your child can soar.

What’s the best way to get involved? Talk to your child's teacher, counselor or all the school office to see what you can do. In addition, the district’s Parent Outreach and Engagement Department offers programs and resources in the most effective ways to help your child academically.

Our school welcomes you to pitch in, often with seemingly small tasks that can have far-reaching results. You can join our Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA), our ELAC (English Learner Advisory Committee), the School Site Council (SSC), or the Site Governance Team (SGT). The Clairemont Community of Schools is a great way to stay informed regarding every level of your child's education - elementary, middle, and high school. 

We have many opportunities for you to volunteer such as helping out during the Book Fairs, reading to students on Read Across America Day, talking about your work life on Career Day, and helping to tutor individual students. In addition, you can make an impact by joining any one of the district’s many advisory committees and councils, and help shape policy on everything from legislation to athletics.

Our district is committed to involving student families and the community. We’ve made it official policy, Parent Communications and Involvement Standards, to establish effective partnerships at every level in the educational process -- from our classrooms, to company boardrooms, to family living rooms.
