Parent Involvement Opportunities

We welcome parent involvement at Chico Junior High School. Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education generally achieve higher grades and test scores, attend school regularly, do their homework consistently and exhibit positive attitudes and behavior.

Please visit the school office anytime and stay in touch with your student's teachers and counselor.  See the
Staff Directory for phone numbers and e-mail addresses.

We also welcome community participation, including donations of time, money, materials and expertise.

To help you know what's going on at school, check out these services for parents and community members:

Procedural Changes and Enforcement Policies

Chico Jr. High Procedural Changes

And Enforcement Policies

Thank you, parents for helping to support our efforts to be consistent in dealing with our school policies.  Please note, that under Dress Code, we've added a definition to help clarify what we consider "short" shorts.  

Early student pickups - Students must be signed out by a parent/guardian or another adult on their emergency card at the attendance window if they are leaving campus before the end of the school day.  Students must sign back in at the attendance office if they return to school before the end of the day.
Dress Code - We have noticed a large number of female students wearing what most would consider "short" skirts and shorts with the warm weather. We will be using a new definition of "short" this year.  If a student holds her arms straight down at her sides, her skirt/shorts must extend at least to the end of her finger tips. This interpretation of the rule gives students a consistent way of knowing what we consider "short" and of assuring that they are appropriately dressed for school. The first semester teachers will give the student a warning if she is breaking this rule and tell the student not to wear the skirt or shorts again. In the second semester and beyond, students will be referred to the office for this offense; they will earn detention and be required to change.
