Parent Involvement Information:  Qualifying parent(s) (father/mother/stepfather/stepmother) and/or spouse (or designated adult if single parent) must complete *20 hours every year for each school on campus where children are enrolled. Ten (10) of your total hours must be informational hours. The Primary Center, the Intermediate Center and the 4th & 5th Grade Center are one Elementary school and therefore count as one school. *The requirement for The Villages Early Childhood Center is 10 hours per year, 5 of which must be informational hours. The maximum number of hours required for any family will not exceed 50 hours per year. While other family members, relatives or friends are encouraged to participate as community volunteers, their time cannot be calculated as PI hours. The time frame for completing parental involvement hours begins the day after the closing of one school year until the last day of the next school year. Please plan your activities and meet your obligation early each school year. We have developed a detailed "Parent Involvement Manual"-- click here for a brochure.

An essential element for the success of students at The Villages Charter School is the inclusion of parents in varied capacities. Research indicates that the involvement of parents in the academic areas of a child’s life can greatly increase the child’s chances of success. While involvement may take many forms, our charter and the Charter School Advisory Board have determined a minimal acceptable level of participation for each family as well as specific areas where involvement has the largest impact on student success. Parent involvement is mandatory for your child to attend The Villages Charter School, a "Charter School in the Workplace" and it is our hope that the following information will prove helpful as we journey through the school year together.

NEW OPPORTUNITIES!  Informational PI opportunities for reading books and taking AR tests!!! Please look under your individual school's media center link to find specific titles for your reading pleasure.
