Frequently Asked Questions

 Q: How can I complete my minimum parental involvement hours?

A: Parents are expected to participate a minimum of 10 service hours. Four of the 10 required hours must be obtained by attending Parent Support Group meetings. Attending a Parent Group meeting counts as 1 service hour. Parent Support Group related activities and school activities are set up through ALANHS. The ALANHS Program Director or the Parent Board will announce when parent volunteers are needed for activities or field trips. 

 Q: When do my parental involvement hours begin?

A: Parental involvement hours for parents begin after the Summer Institute. Hours must be written and signed off on the Parental Involvement Record sheet. The forms are due at the end of the school year.

 Q: What happens if I do not complete my parental involvement hours?

A: If you do not fulfill your parental involvement commitment, it will impact the status of your student in ALANHS.
