District 7 parents are strongly urged to become active
participants in the educational process. Parents’ interest
in their children’s education and the level of cooperation
between home and school are key elements to success in
school. Volunteer opportunities, through the parent -
teacher organization or the building’s principal, are
virtually unlimited. The PTO’s make a valuable contribution
to the schools through their fund-raising and social
activities. Interested volunteers should call the individual
schools. The Citizens Advisory Council is an appointed
committee of laypersons whose function is to study various
issues and provide advice and recommendations to the Board
of Education. The CAC meets on the first Tuesday evening of
every month during the school year.
