Parent involvement Parents are in integral part of the school community. PTSA involvement is extremely high, and PTSA leaders coordinate much of the volunteer work done at the school. Parents volunteer in several different capacities. Parents are involved in clerical assistance in the main office, they voluneer to chaperone on field trips, they volunteer at dances to do coat check and selling water. Parent participation is very important to Amador.
