Service Points Policy and Process


簡介 Introduction

家長服務辦法始於1989年, 其目的在於鼓勵與協助家長對於校務的參與. 服務辦法簡介:
The Parent’s Service Point Policy was established in 1989 to encourage and guide the parent’s participation. The policy is summarized below:

2016-17 學年的家長服務點數規定如下:

  1. Service Points requirement
    A family with one student must complete 10 points while those with more than one student must complete 15 points.

  2. Room Parents Duty
    With the permission of each language class teacher, the duty of “room parents” will be created. The teacher will determine how many positions there will be. Without her approval, no parent will be allowed in the classroom. Please sign-up with your RPL if your teacher requests room parent(s) to assist her in the classroom.

  3. Deposit and Service Points
    At the beginning of the school year, every family with one enrolled student is required to make a $100 deposit; families with two or more enrolled students are required to make a $150 deposit. Once the service point requirement is fulfilled at the end of the school year, the full $100/$150 will be returned. $10.00 will be deducted for every service point not fulfilled. As a general guideline, one service point is issued for each hour served.

  4. Recording Service Points
    The service points need to be entered/submitted onto the Sycamore system by the parents themselves before coming to their duties. Parents can check if their service points were approved on the Sycamore system 2 to 3 weeks after the service. If you have any questions regarding to your service points, please email to servicepoint@sccca.us.
