Get involved

The teachers, staff, and students appreciate every volunteer whether you chaperone a field trip, support students in the classroom or help with school activities.  If you want to volunteer in any capacity, please arrange it with your child's teacher and make sure you have a Megan's Law Volunteer form on file in the office.

Below are additional ways to get involved with your child’s education and our school community:



PATA is open to all parents or guardians of CVE students as well as teachers, school administrators, staff members of CVE, and any other residents in the CVE attendance area.  PATA meetings are generally held on the first Wednesday of the month at 6:30 PM and FREE childcare and dinner are provided during the meeting.



The School Site Council (SSC) serves as an advisory group for the Single Plan for Student Achievement.  The council is comprised of parents and staff members with voting members equally divided between parents and staff.  The SSC monitors the school plan, assesses needs, sets goals, evaluates progress and updates the plan. SSC meetings are held on Wednesday afternoons at 4:00 in our school library. These meetings are open to the public and families are encouraged to attend.



Each school with 21 or more English learners, regardless of language, must form a functioning English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC).  The purpose of ELAC is to advise the principal and school staff on programs and services for English learners. ELAC meetings are announced in advance and are held at least three times each year. Please refer to the school calendar for meeting dates.

CVUSD maintains a District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) to advise on programs and services for EL students. This committee provides an opportunity for district-wide articulation and ensure consistency and coordination.The DELAC steering committee meets at least four times annually.  For meeting dates and more information click here.


Parents will be given the opportunity to make organizational decisions by forming a separate council or electing a representative to serve their interests on the School Site Council.  All parents are invited to attend School Site Council meetings.
