Each family is expected to volunteer 18 hours per school year (that is just 2 hours per month). There are opportunities to serve at the school or from home.
All volunteer time by either parent applies. All families are required to get involved in certain activities, such as participating in at least three Saturday work days on the property the school rents and attending the Parent Orientation Meeting on the evening of the first Thursday after school starts. Each family can choose the rest of their involvement based upon their areas of interest. (Student volunteer time does not apply to the requirement.)
Parents will record their own time on an online form. Total hours will be checked at the end of the first semester and second semester.
Exceptions to this policy due to hardship must be approved by the Pioneer Heritage Academy Board.
