Parents and COMMUNITY
Parents play an extremely important role at CIBA. In addition to supporting your CIBA student, ensuring that s/he gets enough sleep, budgets his/her time for assignments, and gets to school on time, we need parents to be involved in the decision-making processes at the school. As a school of choice, CIBA needs parent involvement. The best way to do this is through active participation in the CIBA Parent Advisory Council (PAC).
