Welcome to Magic Valley Commonwealth School,
Parental Involvement: As the Magic Valley Commonwealth School exists to help families in their quest for education, it is imperative that there is much parental involvement. There are many ways for parents to be involved such as teaching a class, serving on the school board, being a teacher’s aide in a class, helping at extra activities or field trips, etc. It is expected that a parent in each family volunteers for at least one activity or position each year.
Student Participation: When a student enrolls in a class, it is expected that he/she will participate in class, be respectful to both peers and mentors, and make every effort to do the outside work. Students can expect that they will have out-of-class reading and writing assignments. Each mentor will present the specific expectations in class. Only students who desire to participate and learn should enroll in classes.
