Parents are invited to attend both site council and PTO meetings. When parents attend these mettings they are not only fully informed but they can also vote on issues at the school. The disipline may seem harsh but it is needed to keep all the students at Doolen safe. Love the AVID program and the teacher!

Parents are fundamentally excluded from all decisions involving students. Parents are deceived or given false information about decisions, for example, military presence on campus. Disciplinary system is poorly constructed, inconsistent, unnecessarily harsh, and ineffectual.
