Parental Involvement

Parent Orientation, and conferences promote a good understanding between parents and the administration of this school. Every parent is required to participate in these informative and helpful programs.

The Parent Orientation meeting is held at the opening of school. Individual parent conferences with the administrator and/or teacher is scheduled only when necessary.

Also, parents are required to contribute at least 20 hours of volunteer service each year. This can be performed in many ways, such as assisting in the learning center, reading groups, tutoring, field trips, and especially fundraising.

All parents are welcomed in the school. When a visit to the classroom is necessary, the parent must check in at the office first. NO PARENT IS TO GO DIRECTLY TO THE CLASSROOM. If a parent wishes to speak with a teacher, a private conference should be arranged. Lunches, homework, books, and other items may be left in the office to be delivered to a student. School phones are for business use only. Please do not call and ask to speak to you child unless it is an emergency.

admissions policy

This school admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to the students at this school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, and national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletics, and other school administered programs.

There is however, limited spacing each academic year, therefore, we first open office space to all Connect Church members and then to members of other churches.

  • NOTE: If in the best interest of the parents and/or the child we feel our school cannot meet the needs, the admission request will be declined in writing to the parents. Also, every student admitted into CLA is on a 6 weeks probationary period in which if the parents and/or the staff feel CLA cannot meet the students' needs enrollment will be terminated. The final decision regarding any student's admissions is to be at the discretion of the School Improvement Committee.
