“Now more than ever, parent participation at the local high schools and intermediate schools is of utmost importance. The message delivered by parent volunteers through Camino de Amistad is an invitation to become involved and stay involved, to communicate with teachers, to stay informed about school meetings and events, and to remain vigilant about test scores, credits, and requirements to go to college,” said Patricia Gomez, SAUSD parent coordinator.
