Q: Are parents required to do volunteer hours?

However, no parent involvement plan shall require mandatory services from parents, and under no circumstances shall any student suffer any adverse consequences based upon a parent’s level of service or contribution to the school. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved at Voices, including: Parent Leadership Groups, Tutoring, Homework volunteer, Parenting classes, Parent information workshops, Advisory Representative and Parent Committees. We encourage and welcome parent engagement and leadership.

Q: How big are the classes?

A: Typical class size is 28 students with a teacher and associate teacher in classes.
