Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve compiled some of the questions parents have most often and placed them all in one place for your convenience. If you need additional information, please contact us.
Can I volunteer at my child’s school?
We welcome volunteers at our schools! By sharing their time, energy, and diverse talents, volunteers play a major role in our school. Through activities such as tutoring, assisting in classrooms, helping in our media centers, and sharing areas of expertise and hobbies, volunteers enhance the work of classroom teachers. They play key roles in special projects and in business partnerships that link our community, businesses, and schools. To become a volunteer in our district, please visit your child’s school office. Thank you for your interest!
In what other ways can I support my child’s school?
We’re glad you asked! We’re lucky enough to be in Arizona, where parents and other taxpayers can contribute to the public school of their choice through the Arizona Tax Credit program. Visit our Tax Credit page for more information about how you can support our schools and receive a tax credit for your donation.
Does the district require uniforms?
While we do not require students to wear a school uniform, we do expect our students to dress in a way that shows respect for themselves, for others, and for their school. Students may not wear attire that distracts from the learning experience in the classroom or presents a risk to the health, safety, or general welfare of the student, other students, or staff.
In addition, students will refrain from displaying tattoos or wearing clothing, jewelry, or other accessories that may communicate the following messages:
- A message related to tobacco, alcohol, illegal drugs, or other items that minors may not purchase or possess
- A message that advocates or promotes violence or terror
- A message that is sexually suggestive, vulgar, obscene, or plainly offensive
- A message that would cause a reasonable person to feel threatened, intimidated, or harassed because of the person’s race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or sexual orientation
- A message expressing gang membership, affiliation, or support
For more information about dress code, please review the student handbook for your child’s school on the Parents page.
How do I view my child’s educational records?
As a parent or legal guardian, you have the right to inspect and review any and all records relating to your child, including a listing of people who have reviewed or received copies of the information. Parents wishing to review their child’s special education records should contact the special education director for an appointment.
Does the school offer insurance for my child?
Yes! We encourage families to purchase accident insurance for their children, which is offered through the school. Information about insurance coverage is available during the first week of school. Please be aware of the following:
- The school is not financially responsible for injuries incurred on school grounds.
- Any student who wants to participate in a school-sponsored trip or activity, including athletics, must have a current health insurance policy purchased through the school or through private insurance.
- If insurance is not affordable, please contact the school principal for assistance.
My child is struggling with coursework. Is help available?
All our teachers are available to assist students before and/or after school. Please have your child contact his or her teacher for assistance. If your child continues to struggle, contact your child’s teacher to make an appointment. The best way to help your child is through active involvement in his or her education. The earlier we address any concerns, the sooner we can help.
