CYSP PLUS CATEGORY
CYSP Plus Categories “Parent Participation”
Many researches confirm that parents’ involvement in their children’s education can be one of the biggest predictors of student success. Parents are encouraged to increase their interaction and discussion with their children and to also be more responsive and sensitive to their children’s social, emotional, and intellectual developmental needs. With parents’ involvement, they will have a better understanding of the adviser’s job and the importance of CYSP program.
The CYSP program has “plus” categories with parent involvement; Bronze Plus, Silver Plus and Gold Plus. The Plus categories are added to encourage parent involvement and participation in school activities and their scholars’ events. This component is not mandatory to achieve any of the three medals but will earn special recognition for the scholars that meet the requirements of this component.
All parents or legal guardians of 5th to 12th graders are welcome to join CYSP programs. We encourage CYSP parents to participate in a variety of in-school and out of school CYSP activities with their children. Concept schools will recognize the parents who participate in and attend CYSP activities as well as school functions and events with their children based on the chart below. Scholars will also earn the plus recognition and extra prizes if their parents are recognized.
- CYSP parents attend any school function/event with their children
