School and Community Resources

Additionally, in order to encourage and support stakeholder involvement, each school’s website contains the following information in both Spanish and English:

  • Timely notices of board meetings and other school committee meetings that involve parents.
  • Meetings held/interpreted in Spanish and English.
  • Opportunities to share thoughts and opinions through email and ParentSquare, the interactive parent communication platform used by the school.
  • Short summaries of issues, ideas, and decisions of school committees.
  • At least two opportunities for parents to give detailed input on the Local Control Accountability Plan.

Parents are welcome and encouraged to volunteer at our school, however, parental involvement is not a requirement for acceptance to, or continued enrollment at, the charter school.

Principal’s Message

Hello Aspire Tate Academy Families!

At Aspire Tate Academy, we believe in, and understand, the need for partnership with the community so that we can meet the full needs of the child.  We know that, when we work together, our scholars are better able to become their best selves.  We want to continue to work to create an environment for our scholars to have the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful people.

With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Aspire Tate Academy.  While at Tate, you are able to volunteer to assist our parent coordinator, work directly with teachers through our Room Parent Program, become a member of our School Site Council (SSC) or English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) and participate in parent workshops or special events.  You are encouraged to be involved.  We know that research on schools clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child.

It is our desire to keep you informed of all that takes place at school.  You will receive a weekly newsletter and you can always find out what is going on by accessing our Instagram or Facebook pages @aspiretateacademy.  If you have any questions or concerns that arise, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call.  I look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family.
