Parent Involvement

Parent Involvement Requirement (PIR)


In lieu of higher tuition and fees to our parents, each family will be required to donate a certain amount of time toward school functions, like fundraisers, BBQ, Carnival, and other school projects. The required amount of time is set forth in the Parent Involvement Requirement.


(Guidelines Adopted by the Parent/Teacher Fellowship)


Each family with students enrolled in North Kern Christian School is required to complete volunteer service hours to encourage pride in, and partnership with the school.


Grades K-8th: 40 hours per school year


PIR volunteer activities may include (but are not limited to):


Classroom help

Cleaning, Gardening and Repairs

Driving, Chaperoning on Field Trips

Office Help

PTF Functions (including meetings, carrying out offices, etc.)

Yard and Lunchroom Help

Assistance in Chorus, Music, Sports Programs, etc.

Helping with Fundraisers

Classroom Parties

Saturday Workdays


This obligation can be fulfilled anytime during the year and by any qualified member of your family (including extended family, older children, or helpful friends.) In cases of extreme hardships, please address the PTF board for board review.


A $10.00 per hour value has been placed on this service item. In lieu of volunteer service, a family may opt to pay this amount.


Donations will not be accepted as PIR hours without prior approval for the Parent/Teacher Fellowship Board.


A sign in sheet (one per family) is located in the school office to validate hours served. At the end of the year, families with fewer than the required 40 PIR hours will be billed $10.00 per hour for their remaining requirements.


  • Bike A Thon pledges collected can be counted as PIR time (For every $25 collected beyond the required $50)
  • Whenever cookies, ect are brought to a school event=1 PIR hour



Of course the idea is that the more parents involved, the easier it is for all. Further information and suggestions for ways to help will come from the PTF Board throughout the school year.1.0
