How Does Participation Work?

In-classroom participating parents can expect to participate up to 12 times (full) or six times (half) during the 10-month school year.  However, if a class is under-enrolled, families may be responsible for more than the average 12 times for full participation.

The in-classroom participation schedule is posted outside each classroom at least one month in advance by the classroom Scheduler who is a parent selected by the school to develop, maintain and coordinate the schedule of participation days.

SSDS asks that no more than two family members be designated to participate in the classroom for each child. A participation shift is one full school day, including a 15 minute prep/clean-up period before and after the core school hours. The parent prepares the room for the arrival of the students, assists the classroom teacher and assistant during the day, and cleans up the classroom following dismissal.
