Engaging Parents

In order to increase parental participation and to keep the school functioning, my school (Orange Coast Japanese School) has a Parent Association. It consists of one of the three pillars of the school, PA, Board and Teachers. Unlike a traditional governance structure of administration, these three groups have equal voice and share the equal responsibility and decision making. OCG is run and operated by an active Parents Association (PA). The PA organizes various events and engages in fundraising activities, including participating in the annual Orange International Street Fair. The money that we earn is used to pay for the school’s monthly rent and other expenses.

Hello. What does your school do to recognize your students' bilingual and biliteracy ability? Is there any positive effect of this recognition at school, on your students, such as an increase of learning motivation, better attendance and so on?

Are the AP World Language and Culture Exams important for CBHL schools despite many challenges for CBHL schools to have their
students take them, and many alternative tests available to assess their bilingual proficiency?
