Parent Responsibilities

Silver Oaks Cooperative is based on the core idea that families are deeply involved in helping the classroom, administration, and facilities operate.  This model not only develops a supportive community and tailored experience, but also keeps tuition costs low. 

Co-oping in the Classroom

A parent or guardian from each family will be expected to co-op in the classroom once every two weeks for every child enrolled. Families may opt-out of in-class co-oping for a fee of $2,500. Families may do in-class co-oping once every four week for a fee of $1,250. These fees are use to pay an aid as a replacement in the classroom.

Out of Classroom Duties

Families may not opt-out of their other duties. Each family will have a committee job with opportunities for leadership positions; attend monthly membership meetings; participate in three school clean up days each year; and participate in fundraising activities, Open Houses, and other events.
