Parent Volunteer Opportunities
Please download our latest Parent Newsletter above to see current Parent Volunteer opportunities. Parent volunteers are always welcome; opportunities are offered in a number of areas including:
- Main Office
- SBC/ELAC Committees
- School Events/Field Trips, etc.
School Site Council (SSC) and English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)
The SSC and ELAC is a collaborative body composed of faculty, administrators and community stakeholders. Two of the most important functions of these committees are the setting of site priorities (through the Academic Plan) and budgeting operating funds to meet these priorities. While serving on the SSC and ELAC parents will also learn a great deal about TAS including the many programs it has to offer. Ultimately, parents will be able to provide perspectives on priorities and give input as an advisory committee.
Parents elect parent/community SSC and ELAC members to a 2 year term. Parents may contact the school Principal for more information or to serve on these committees for TAS, WAHS or ACES.
The Accelerated Schools’ garden located on the corner of MLK Blvd. and Woodlawn Ave. provides an opportunity for students to experience a range of outdoor fun and education! The garden is an outside laboratory and, for more than six years, has provided free organic food for TAS students and their families. At the same time, it serves as a great space for learning.
Garden curriculum covers the following subjects and state standards:
- Environmental studies
- Art and culture
