Responsibilities of ICS Parents As Partners
ICS parents are required to agree to the following commitments upon their child’s enrollment:
A Commitment to Family Engagement
A foundational philosophy of ICS is that the efficacy of a child’s education is directly related to the level of engagement by parents in their child’s moral, spiritual, and academic training. Families understand their responsibility to create a culture of learning in their homes that encourages spiritual pursuit, moral maturity and academic interest, and deepens the relationship between parents and children that results in strong families and responsible citizens.
The Completion of a Gateway Parenting Course
Parents have one semester from the date of enrollment to be enrolled in an approved, values-based Christian parenting course. Contact the Registrar for the names of currently approved courses.
A Commitment to Ongoing Family Education
Each family is required to achieve a minimum of five Family Education Units (FEUs) per year to continue enrollment in International Community School
Regular Participation on Campus
Parents of Academic Program students are required to serve on campus on a regular basis. You will sign up on a schedule with other parents in your grade level and will be given the opportunity to serve in the classroom, the lunchroom, or the administrative offices depending on the needs of your child’s class. Parents serve an average of 2-3 times per child per semester.
Attendance at Community Meetings
Held regularly throughout the year, these meetings are an important gathering of all staff, faculty, and parents. A corporate session offers a time of worship and updates on school information, and grade-level breakout sessions with your class keep you in touch with teachers and other parents. Check the school calendar for meeting dates.
