Parent Involvement

As a parent participation school KOC depends on and requires the involvement of all parents. Listed below are the participative obligations all families must fulfill. Each family MUST complete ALL OBLIGATIONS required.

Parents of Children in Infant/Toddler Program 

Quarterly Parents' Meetings

At least one parent from each family MUST attend each of the two Parent Meetings (fall and spring quarters). These meetings are announced well in advance. The meetings offer vital information to parents and address issues of curriculum, activities, fund raising, etc., which affect the whole organization. The meetings also provide an opportunity to develop community, to facilitate communication, and for parents to become better acquainted.

All infant/toddler families are expected to meet all obligations outlined above. Parents unable to meet one or more of them will be fined as follows: $75 for missing a parent meeting.

Please meet your cooperative obligations. Parents experiencing difficulties with this should discuss their situation with the Board Secretary, of the Kids on Campus Director.
