Ball Charter School’s believe that a critical key to success for both our schools and students is parent engagement. With this in mind, we highly encourage our parents to volunteer in our classroom and our events. The partnership between the parents and educators is vital to the students.
Site Council is made up of teachers, support staff, admin, and parents. The goal of the Site Council is to allow all groups of stakeholders to have a voice in the growth and improvement of our school. We encourage all parents to come to the meetings to gain information on how to be engaged in our school and your child’s education.
The mission of the Dobson Academy PTO is to enhance and support the educational experience and provide opportunities to bring Dobson Academy staff, students and parents/guardians together through volunteer and financial support.
The Dobson Academy PTO has a new way for you to share your ideas and keep you updated on PTO activities. Please feel free to contact the PTO via email at Dobsonacademypto@gmail.com with any questions, comments, or ideas. The PTO supports the educational and recreational needs of the students in addition to providing opportunities to develop closer relationships
throughout the Dobson Academy community.
We encourage parents to visit classrooms, take part in school activities, and volunteer in the school because family engagement promotes student learning.
There are a number of ways you can volunteer:
- Work in your child’s classroom or assist with small groups
- Assist in the office
- Supervise in the cafeteria or at recess
- Assist with planning and running of school-wide events
- Join our P.T.O or Site Council
- Be a guest speaker, teach a skill, or share a talent with our students
- … and so much more!
Volunteers form an essential part of the school program. For the safety of our students, Arizona Ball Charter Schools require all volunteers, including family members, to be screened with a background check every two years. If you would like to volunteer at Dobson Academy, please reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator, Audrey Ross, Aross@ballcharterschools.org.
