Natomas Charter School was created as a means of providing parents and students with an expanded choices in the types of educational opportunities available. The school is founded on the belief that active parental involvement in the school's program is a key component to student success. Because the charter's mission is to provide unique learning opportunities to its students, the school needs committed parents who are willing to assist the staff and faculty in making this happen.

 

To this end, the Virtual Learning Academy asks that all families contribute to our established school wide goal of 1300 parent contribution hours for the 2017-2018 school year (an average participation of 10 hours per family).

 

Parents' active participation is one of the main ingredients that makes our academy successful. The parent commitment can be fulfilled in many fun and enjoyable ways. Hours can be completed one at a time or in larger increments for a single event or fundraiser. The following is a sample of the many ways parents can contribute to our school wide goal:
