Family Involvement Accountability System

Since all families agree to be actively involved in the educational process when they enroll their children in ECA, an accountability system encourages fulfillment of this stated goal and rewards those who are active in their child’s school world. The system consists of tallying involvement or attendance points to amass 30 points for the first child and 5 more points for each additional child before May 20 each year. Parents who work full time at ECA, single parents, and those not at ECA the full year have reduced requirements. Below is a chart of some of the planned events or service opportunities and their corresponding points. Attendance will be taken at school events and recorded. Any committee head or parent representative is responsible for turning in points to the office within a week of the event s/he coordinates.

Points earned after reaching the goal will not be recorded since the family will already be receiving the full discount and there is no need to keep track after that. Obviously, we highly encourage continued school involvement even after receiving the needed points. Official tallies can be viewed in RenWeb (RenWeb ParentsWeb / Family Information / Online Filing Cabinet / Points), but all parents are encouraged to keep track of their own points to help verify any inconsistencies. Discrepancies will only be addressed until the end of the second week of the month after the points were earned. Contact points@eca.edu.co if there are questions about specific point counts. All parents who earn the expected points during the year for attendance at school events or involvement in school will be exempt from the Complementary Parent Activities Fee ($300.000) which needs to be paid by the Year-End Celebrations and before grades are distributed. This fee covers extra paperwork and logistics involved in activities with parents, but ECA covers the cost of these scheduled events when parents participate and earn their necessary points. Partial point totals will receive partial credit toward this fee since each point earned will bring a proportionate reduction.
