Member Responsibilities

What does it mean to be a member of Sligo Creek Co-op? Lots of things!

We're a "co-operative" because we work alongside one another to make SCC a true community. This means that each family at SCC is expected to take on responsibilities so that we may continue to offer opportunities for learning and community building. We are all in this together!

Here is a list of the responsibilities of each member family:

  • TEACH/CO-TEACH: An adult in each family is expected to lead or co-teach a class. (New families are not asked to be lead teachers for a class, only co-teach—-which may be just being the second adult in the classroom). 
    The lead teacher for a class will have proposed the class during the schedule development process the previous semester, and is primarily responsible for planning, preparing, and delivering the course. In some cases, two people may share the Lead Teacher responsibility for a course.  


  • ON-SITE JOBS: Each family signs up for a designated number of jobs slots each semester.  Jobs slots are approximately an hour in length and are performed on campus during the days when the co-op meets.  Jobs include monitoring the front door, helping with set up, and helping with clean up. 

  • COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIP: Each family should sign up to join one or more of the following committees: Facilities, Events, Community Service, Classes, Membership, or Board of Directors.

  • CLASS PLANNING: As SCC plans classes for each semester, families are asked to suggest classes they’d like to see offered, or they'd like to teach themselves. 


Fortunately, since we all pitch in, "many hands make light work" and the responsibilities of membership are pretty easy to fulfill!
