Parent Involvement

Ball Charter School’s believe that a critical key to success for both our schools and students is parent engagement. With this in mind, we highly encourage our parents to volunteer in our classroom and our events. The partnership between the parents and educators is vital to the students.

Leadership Team

The Leadership Team is made up of teacher representatives, school administrators, a parent representative, and a community representative. The goal of the Leadership Team is to allow all groups of stakeholders to have a voice in the growth and improvement of our school. We encourage any parent or community member to join our Leadership Team to gain information on how to be engaged in our school and the education of our students. If interested, please e-mail Mary Kennedy,
