are encouraged to be involved in their children's education. Each
school includes in its school based coordinated plan a parent
involvement component that provides parents with opportunities to be
involved in information and training sessions to: support their child's
academic efforts at school and home; help parents develop parenting
skills; build consistent and effective home-school communications; and
integrate parent involvement programs into the school plan. Parent
volunteers are a valued addition to the educational program. Volunteers
are required to check in at the office before proceeding to a classroom.

the Chico Unified School District, parent involvement means a whole
range of options and choices. Whether it is making sure that your child
is well fed, well rested and attends school regularly, or volunteering
your time to assist in a classroom, or taking an active role in serving
on district committees helping to shape policy - all are valued
activities and all help students to be academically successful.
