Is RFC a good fit for our family?
Expectations for Goodness of Fit:
Can I or a family member commit to co-op requirements 10-15 times per year?
We have an interest in and the time to commit to getting in the required 20 community hours each year.
We are available and interested in attending the parent education offered, six hours of which count towards the total 20 community hours annually.
We agree to get CPR/First Aid training, mandated reporter training, and abuse signs and symptoms training.
We're comfortable with a Sociocractic form of governance, to which RFC is committed, which stresses a community where all voices matter, decision by consent, and action-driven circles.
We get that RFC is built by parents and are committed to helping nurture school growth.
We have an idea of how our family can contribute to the school, through the family job role, in ways that will help strengthen the school.
Do our family values align with RFC's interpretation of Progressive Education?
We value diversity, pluralism, intersectionality, and agree to help create spaces where all members feel safe and belong.
We are committed to time spent outside on a daily basis, in all types of weather.
We are looking for a small community that is familial nature.
If we are uncomfortable or unhappy with how things are going, we can express our feelings in an acceptable manner to the appropriate person.
