Participating in the education of our children and developing the strong sense of community that comes from working together toward a common goal are central to the mission of Tierra Pacifica. Our aim is to have all families actively involved in the community in a way that is meaningful both to the family and the school. Many families choose to volunteer between 12 - 15 hours per month (3 - 4 hours weekly in the classroom or an equivalent amount of time serving on a committee and/or performing a school support job).
Tierra Pacifica Charter School is a parent participation school.
We acknowledge parents as co-facilitators of their children's learning and partners in their education. Parents' active participation in the classroom, governance and all other aspects of the school organization is vital to the challenging work of educating all children at Tierra Pacifica. Meeting classroom needs will be a priority over other forms of parent participation.
