Family Involvement and Support
Family involvement and support in school activities directly affects the academic success of high school students. At Leadership, we value and encourage parent participation. There are many ways in which families engage with and contribute to LHS. Families attend Back to School Night and Family Meetings, chaperone field trips, and attend sporting events. We have established a parent involvement policy and family compact, which describes in detail our commitment to and strategy around family engagement: Title I Parental Involvement Policy.
Back to School Night
Each September, families are invited the annual Back to School Night. During this evening, parents/guardians have the opportunity to meet their student’s teachers. The evening begins with a community potluck and time with families from the student’s advisories. Students are encouraged to attend the evening with their families.
Two times each year families meet with their student’s advisor, the student, and any other key adults in the student’s life. At these Family Meetings, students set long-term goals, discuss how their educational journey will help them meet those goals, and review academic and social progress.
Board of Trustees Meetings
Leadership parents are invited and encouraged to attend the school’s Board of Trustees meetings, which are open to the public. Dates of the meetings can be found on this website, and agendas are posted three days prior to the meeting. Additionally, each year a parent/guardian serves as Parent Representative to the Board and provide communication between the Board and Parent Association.
At the outset of each board meeting there is time set aside for public comment. If a parent/ guardian would like to request an item be added to the agenda, he/she should contact the Principal or Director of Administration or Board Chair.
