ECCS Partnership Agreement
I. Philosophy of Partnership
Evergreen Community Charter School (ECCS) believes that education takes place both at home and at school, and that parent(s)/guardian(s) should be active partners in the education of their children. With this partnership, parent(s)/guardian(s) and school staff commit to be mutually supportive, working together to enhance each child’s development and to insure the success of ECCS. Based upon this agreement, students, parent(s)/guardian(s) and staff accept certain responsibilities as partners in this educational endeavor.
At ECCS, the Partnership Agreement is not just a philosophy; it is a requirement of initial and continual enrollment. As a charter school, managed by a volunteer Board of Directors, ECCS can only exist if everyone invests in its operation and supports its mission. Having chosen to create a school, we are collectively committed to its success; therefore, the Partnership Agreement includes both a requirement to be involved in the education of one’s children, and a request that all families support the overall operation of the school through volunteerism. ECCS will make every effort to work with students and families to help everyone comply with this agreement. A variety of opportunities for parent/guardian involvement are listed to accommodate different family situations. For special circumstances, the Director is willing to help design a personal plan. Please address any concerns regarding the school’s adherence to this agreement with the Director.
