Family Responsibilities

Member families are required to participate in the planning and operation of the school. A thorough description of these responsibilities will be given when you join the school.


At least one parent must work at the school from 8:30am until 1:00pm, either 3, 4, or 5 days per month, depending on the number of days per week their child attends. Workdays will be on the same day of the week.


At least one parent must attend each of the 2 parent meetings per month, held on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month.  These Co-op Business and Parent Education meetings are held at 7:30pm at the school.

Family Job

Each family is required to hold a job for the school. This job can be anything from President of the Board to Scheduling to Laundry. New families will be asked to select a job from a list provided at the first parent meeting of the year.


At least one parent must actively participate in fundraising activities.

School Maintenance

Each family must participate in school-wide maintenance days, which require 1.5 hours per family, every other month. The first and last maintenance days of the year are mandatory for all members.

Snack Duty

Each family will be scheduled to work in the kitchen on their workday approximately every 6 weeks. Snack duty includes providing nutritious, well balanced snack for all students and teachers.
