Visitation Involvement Program

The purpose of the Visitation Involvement Program (VIP) is to involve parents in their children's education and to build community. It is each parent's opportunity to participate in their childrenā€˜s education and to insure that their children receive a quality educational program at Visitation. The success of school activities and fundraising is dependent on each family's participation and commitment. Hopefully, this obligation will be fun as well as supportive of our school.

Each single-parent family and new family is required to contribute 20 hours per school year. Each two-parent family, kindergarten through eighth grade, are required to contribute 40 hours. If you find you are unable to contribute the required time or talent, you will be billed and have the responsibility of paying $25.00 per remaining hour.
