Public comment during Board meetings is welcomed and the Board encourages attendance at the meetings.
The Heights Charter parents are also invited to participate in the Parents Association (“PA”) (formerly the Parent Advisory Council). The PA provides the opportunity for parents to meet with Charter School administration and staff to provide comments and discuss current issues at the school. The PA may also provide input on agenda items at the Board of Directors meetings. Membership and involvement in the PA also give opportunity for parents to socialize with each other and be more connected with the school and its programs. The Heights Charter does not accept Title I funding.
