One of the many things that makes our program so great is the opportunity to work closely with our students and teachers. Listed below are the commitments our families make when joining Marysville Cooperative Education Program.
- Volunteering in the Classroom: Each family commits to 2 ½ hours per week of parent/guardian participation in classroom service per child enrolled in the program, per year, as needed by teachers.
- Field Trips: Each family commits to chaperoning and/or driving on at least 2 field trips per student per school year. Field trips are an integral part of the Co-op, providing students with a vast array of learning experiences not available in the classroom.
- Membership Meetings: There are 8 Monthly Membership meetings, typically held on the 2nd Thursday of There are two parts to the meeting, program wide and classroom. In the classroom portion you will receive information on specific to your class. In the program wide portion you will receive updates on the program as a whole, nominate and vote on council officers.
- Committees: Each family participates in one committee per child in the program. There are many different committees to choose from, some are in the classroom while others are program wide.
- Monetary Donation: In the Co-op – field trips, for example – are funded solely from parent/guardian support. Parents/guardians are asked to pledge $20 per child enrolled in the Co-op each month school is in session.
- Once the Annual In-district transfer period has closed, students will be placed on a space available basis.
- If there are more applicants than space available per grade level, all names of new applicants for that grade level will be placed in a lottery.
- If a lottery is necessary for new applicants, the names of the students will be drawn and ranked in order, starting with those that have siblings currently enrolled in MCEP. Students will be accepted based on available space. All others will be put on a waiting list.
