Parent Involvement: It's for the kids!

Parent involvement is an integral part of our students' growth and development at Churchill County School District (ChurchillCSD). From pre-kindergarten to 12th grade, studies have shown that students with involved parents/guardians achieve more, perform higher academically, have better attendance, accomplish goals, and are more likely to attend college or trade schools after graduation. We encourage parents/guardians to be involved in any way they are able. Programs such as Infinite Campus and Google Classroom are excellent ways of keeping up with your student's assignments and projects. Volunteering in school is also a great way to show support.

ChurchillCSD offers an open-door policy when it comes to parent volunteers. There is a simple and FREE application process. Once your application is approved, you can volunteer as often as you are able. You can pick up the application at any one of our schools or you can download it here by clicking the link provided. As your children grow older, active family engagement at home and in the schools is just as important in the middle and high school years as it is in the elementary levels. Kids of all ages enjoy seeing their parents/guardians active in their lives, and studies show that those students perform better overall behaviorally, socially, and academically.

Many believe that parent involvement means solely being active in the school; however, it is so much more than that. Though our schools are always looking for parent volunteers, there are so many ways to be an involved parent outside of school hours. Family Engagement in the home is just as important.
