Parent Participation : Live Oak engages parents as partners in creating a dynamic school community.
Live Oak Parents Association
As members of the Live Oak Parents Association (LOPA), parents model respect and collaboration by working with teachers and administrators to provide each student the greatest opportunity for success. Parents provide invaluable support in a variety of ways, including:
- helping in the classroom
- providing field trip transportation
- organizing and running school events and programs
- staffing work days
- serving in the Live Oak Parent Association and on the Board of Trustees
Parents commit to 60 volunteer hours per family in Lower School, 30 hours per family in Middle School. (Parents with students in both Lower and Middle School serve 60 hours total, not 90.) Hours are reduced for single parent/household families—30 hours per family in Lower School and 15 hours per family in Middle School.
