2017-2018 Parent Support Board Co-Chairs
PARENT SUPPORT GUIDELINES Volunteer Hours Each AWHS family, parent or guardian with students in grades 7-12 is required to contribute service hours each year to activities and events are sponsored by the Archbishop Williams Parent Support Board (PSB), which reports to the AWHS Advancement Office. Students who take part in activities or events may also be eligible for student service hours and should check with Campus Ministry for details. Hours students work do not count toward parent hours. Volunteer hours must be served between August 1 and July 31 of the current academic year. Families of students in grades 12: (this section applies to the noted grades only) There is a two hundred and fifty dollar ($250) fee per family, per year. The fee is due and must be paid by August 15, 2017. The fee is refundable when a student leaves AWHS provided the family has fulfilled its twenty (20) hour obligation each year. Families may choose to donate the fee to AWHS in lieu of a refund. Until refunded or donated, the fee will be held in an escrow account. Any accrued interest accrued shall benefit AWHS. If a family chooses to volunteer, but does not complete the required twenty (20) hours in a given academic year. AWHS will retain the two hundred and fifty dollar ($250) fee. Any such family must then pay an additional two hundred and fifty dollar ($250) fee at the beginning of the next academic year. There is no partial credit. Hours are not transferrable and may not be rolled over from year to year. Families of students in grades 7 through 11: (this program will be for all grades effective in 2018- 2019 school year.) Families of students in grades 7 through 11 are required to give 10 hours of service per year, but in lieu of the hours may donate one hundred dollars ($100) to a Parent Support Fund. We welcome parents to do both, but they MUST satisfy at least one. The one hundred dollar ($100) donation will be used throughout the year by the Parent Support Board 8 8 (PSB) to fund their annual activities. If there are any funds remaining at the end of the academic year, the Parent Support Board (PSB) and all attendees will vote on how to utilize them at their May meeting.

Participation in the Parent Support Board is welcomed and an excellent vehicle to support the school.
