Parent Association

Parent Association Overview

 All parents are automatically members of University Prep Charter High School’s Parent Association (PA). There are no pre-qualifications required to participate in our PA. Even though all parents/guardians are members, there is no requirement to participate in any PA related activities. The term "parent" includes the student’s parent or guardian, or any person in a parental or custodial relationship to the student.

 Much of the event organizing is spearheaded by the PA Officers, made up of elected officers. Elected officers are the President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Each officer serves a one-year term and the term limit for each officer position is two consecutive one-year terms.
