In order to satisfy the educational requirements established by Lake Washington Institute of Technology and to receive college credit, parents must:

  • Attend an orientation meeting in September (New Families Only)
  • Attend a 2-hour class with your child/children once a week
  • Participate in in-class parenting education every-other week
  • Attend three parent education events per quarter.  Events may include speakers on topics such as nutrition, sleep, relationships, emotion coaching, etc. Family events may include hikes, visits to a park or farm, and dinner parties out. Our All-School Calendar has all the details! WTG sponsors enough events for you to meet your requirements, but activities you do on your own or with your family may satisfy these requirements as well.
  • Attend a Class Potluck

As a cooperative program, parents are asked to share in a rotation of class support tasks such as providing snack for their class once or twice per quarter, cleaning up the classroom and setting it up for the next class. We also ask that each class participate in one set-up or tear-down activity to support our great program.  Participation in fund-raising activities and events is encouraged and appreciated, but not required.
