Parent Service Program 2013-2014
The Parent Service Program is a formally organized volunteer program of Catholic Central School which directs volunteer service time to assist in the operation of the School. The involvement of parents and friends is an integral part of the well being of Catholic Central School. This program has been developed through cooperative planning by the Boosters, Administration and the Catholic Central School Board.
The Parent Service Program is an effective way of maintaining high quality educational opportunities for our students. The program also makes it possible to keep yearly tuition increases to a reasonable level. It is an equitable way to provide the school with important service hours while allowing families to participate in events, work together, and share their common perceptions of Catholic education.
The Parent Service Program requires a yearly quota of work hours for each registered family. No additional hours will be required if more than one student in a family is enrolled at Catholic Central. Hours are determined by and recorded based on the oldest student in the family. Example: A family with a 4th, 7th and 9th grade student must complete 20 hours total based on the oldest student.
Participants: Parents/guardians have the primary responsibility of meeting the hourly quota. However, any adult family member, including aunts, uncles, grandparents, or family and friends can help to provide service hours for this program. No one may transfer hours to a non-family student without the permission of the administration.
Quota: The quota for the 2012-2013 school year will be twenty (20) hours/family for full-time Junior/Senior high students. Ten (10) if attending part-time such as CTC students, or attends Catholic Central for part of the school year, or five (5) if you only have a student at the elementary level (K to 6). There will be a fee of $15 per hour not served by May 6, 2014.
Time Limits: Parents/guardians will have until May 6, 2014 to acquire the year's quota. No student will be allowed to attend the following year until the previous year's quota is met. Seniors will not be permitted to participate in the graduation ceremony or receive their diploma if the parent service hour requirement or payment has not been made.
Service Hour Project Tally Form: After completing one of the tasks listed as Areas of Service, the worker should sign the Project Tally Form available from the project coordinator/coach, carefully noting the time in half hour blocks. The project coordinator in charge must sign the form. It is the project coordinator's responsibility to turn in the top copy to the Development Office within two weeks, being sure to keep the carbon copy for their records. Total number of hours can be monitored on your RenWeb account. Any discrepancy in records should be corrected by notifying the Development Office immediately at 937-328-7427 ext. 111.
Areas of Service: The areas listed below already are authorized to count toward service hours in the Parent Service Hour Program. Contact information for each area is also included if you have any questions. Upcoming service opportunities can be found here on our website and weekly newsletters will advertise volunteer opportunities along with email alerts sent as opportunities arise. Those interested should contact the appropriate project coordinator quickly as the time frame for sign-ups is limited. Official prior approval to work an event or project must be obtained. Please do not make an appearance to work an event or project without prior approval by the project or event coordinator.
