Volunteer Opportunities

Graves School district is governed by a 3-member school board comprised of parents and community members elected by voters. The school board holds monthly zoom meetings during which parents and community members have the opportunity to give input to school board decisions. A calendar of meetings is sent out to parents and monthly agendas are posted on the district website to encourage parent/community involvement in governance issues. The school site committee is comprised of parents, community members, and staff that meet to discuss and make recommendations to the board for school improvement and it plays a critical role in the development of the LCAP. By participating in annual surveys and interviews and attending School Site zoom meetings and Board meetings, parents can affect important decisions related to school improvement. The school continues to seek to involve the whole community. Announcements pertaining to school events and organized opportunities for parent/community involvement are posted outside the school, sent home to parents, and transmitted online. (Blackboard Connect) With the improved bandwidth and access to technology, the school staff is implementing ways to develop ways to share more information online through Google Classroom, skype, and zoom meetings and an updated website that is in production. Parents continue to participate in biannual virtual parent/teacher goal-setting conferences, and family participation events such as the school/community winter play, field trips, and many more. (on hold during a pandemic, however students are directed to online virtual field trips).
