Opportunities for Parent Involvement

Research and common sense tell us that when parents and schools work together, the academic and social achievement of students is much higher. Here at University Prep Value, we aim to work together to ensure students receive a high quality education and have access to colleges and universities. Together, we are part of the indispensable fabric of our community's success.

Parents are welcome to volunteer in a variety of capacities. From fundraisers, scholarship workshops, FAFSA (Federal Student Aid) workshops, college nights, student awards assemblies, regular parent meetings, board meetings and more, parents are welcome to attend, and support students and teachers as they prepare students for college and beyond. Most meetings and events are held during evening hours to accommodate working parents.

English Learner Advisory Council (ELAC):

This parent council works with school leadership to ensure English Learners receive the services necessary to achieve proficiency in English, enroll in college preparatory classes, and attain higher academic achievement. The ELAC helps develop a master plan for bilingual students, identifies needs and helps set program goals and objectives for the English language learner community. If your student has not been reclassified as proficient in English (RFEP), this council works with you and other families of English Leanrners to ensure appropriate programs and projects are supported. This year's ELAC Meetings are scheduled for November 8, 2017; December 6, 2017; February 7, 2018; May 9, 2018 at University Prep Value High School.
