Being an API member allows parents to participate in school activities, stay informed and be part of a wide group of active parents involved in the schools where API is present.
API is a local parents’ association with a pragmatic vision. API members share common values and principles, such as:
Firstly, members are well-informed about important subjects related to school life. This information is shared in several ways, including during meetings and by receiving the minutes from meetings held by the school’s administrative board.
Secondly, members exchange ideas and come up with ways to help improve school life, such as helping to find internships for students in 4ème and 3ème.
Finally, members are actively involved in the school community: API’s strength comes from putting into action new ideas proposed by its members.
Being a member of a local and independent association ensures a greater responsiveness and freedom in making decisions. Policies are developed by local members considering the needs of individual schools in our area. There is no pressure to conform to decisions made by a national body that does not understand the specificities of local needs.
Simply by joining the association and paying the small membership fee, you are helping to support APIs projects and values.
For those wanting to become more involved, there are many ways to participate in API projects and school activities, such as:
Motivated members may also want to consider taking on more responsibility by becoming an API board member or by becoming a candidate for the school’s administrative board. Elected API representatives can also participate on various committees, such as the Disciplinary Board.
API is always looking for volunteers who want to be more active in the association! Each member is welcome to participate according to their availability and interests.
