Parent Involvement

  • District 95 parents and guardians are strongly urged to become active participants in the educational process.  We believe that parents are a child's first and most important teacher, and responsibility does not end when a child enters school and that it should continue throughout the child's entire school career.  Parent and community volunteers make a valuable contribution to the schools through their fundraising and other supportive activites.  All school volunteers must complete the "Volunteer Criminal Background Check Form" and be approved by the District prior to assisting at the school.  Interested volunteers should call the building principal or the building volunteer coordinator.  The Volunteer form is available below for your convenience and may be returned at any school building.
