Ms. Jeffrey asked if anyone had questions, as well as informed everyone that administration was available to answer questions regarding the Parental Involvement Plan. Ms. E. Rodriguez, Community Representative, mentioned that parental involvement in the school’s activities and services had been a critical component when presenting the Dual Enrollment element; therefore, should be mentioned in the PIP.
