Parent Involvement

Taylor International Academy

 

Studies show that parental involvement in a child’s education is one of the most important factors in raising student self-esteem and academic achievement. Moreover, most experts agree that parental involvement should go beyond attendance at teacher conferences and open house. We realize, however, that each of our families are unique – with its own priorities, needs, talents, and time constraints — and so we try to provide as many opportunities for parental involvement as possible. Please review the volunteer opportunities suggested below.

  • Classroom Assistants
  • Lunchroom Moderators
  • Field Trips
  • Grading papers
  • Making copies for teachers
  • Bulletin Board
  • Stuffing & Sorting papers
  • Reading groups
  • Scholastic book fair moderators
 

Volunteer Background Checks

It is with sincere gratitude and appreciation that we welcome the support of volunteers at Taylor International Academy! In order to ensure the safety of our students, school board policy requires school administrators to conduct criminal history and sex offender registry checks on all individuals that work or have access to students. If you desire to serve as a volunteer at Taylor International Academy, you are required to complete the Volunteer Background Check Authorization Form. The authorization form may be returned in a sealed envelope to the main office or sent directly to Taylor International Academy. This process must be completed prior to volunteering and on an annual basis (each school year) to ensure the safety and security of all of our students and staff school wide.
