Anacapa Middle School
Parent Involvement Policy and Opportunities
Anacapa Middle School recognizes that parents/guardians are their children's first and most influential teachers and that sustained parent involvement in the education of their children contributes greatly to student achievement and a positive school environment. At Anacapa Middle school the staff and parents/guardians work together to develop meaningful opportunities at all grade levels for parents/guardians to be involved in district and school activities; advisory, decision-making, and advocacy roles; and activities to support learning at home.
Below is a list of opportunities for the 2021-22 school year, but not limited to:
PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association)
All teachers are encouraged to join the Anacapa PTSA. They usually have one big fundraiser at the beginning of the year, and other smaller fundraisers throughout the year. They have monthly meetings where teachers are encouraged to participate and/or attend.
SSC (School Site Council)
This group is made up of elected members of the school community, including parents, teachers, and classified employees. Members usually serve a two year term. This is a decision-making group, approving budgets attached to the Single School Plan for Student Achievement.
