I have had the same issue in robotics and scouts.  Last year we tried having
parents sign up for jobs but no one signed up. This year, we did a job
preferences sheet.  Each parent completed a form where they ranked their job
preferences from 1 to 5.  I then tallied the sheets and assigned parents
jobs based on their rankings.  This worked great and parent involvement has
been outstanding.   Below is the list of parent jobs we use.

 

Assistant Coach - Help herd cats, encourage, have fun.

Research Assistant Coach  - Help guide the girls in project research,
solution development and how to present their findings.  

Research Expert Coordinator - Help the girls coordinate a meeting with an
expert in the field of senior living.

Research Community Outreach - Help the girls coordinate sharing the research
with the community. 

Sub-team Coach -help the girls decide how to tackle robot design and
missions.  

Summer Party Coordinator - Organize a summer team party, something for the
girls get to know each other and have fun

T-Shirt design Coordinator - Work with the girls to develop a t-shirt design

Tournament Snack and Lunch Coordinator

Tournament Swaps Coordinator

Attend Meetings - To comply with two-deep PTA child safety policy, two
non-related adults have to be present at each meeting

 

Thanks,

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] Parent Involvement/Expectations Contract Sample?

 

Hello Teams/Coaches

 

Our first Lego League Competition was very rewarding for our team, but
totally exhausting for me the coach, mostly because I received very little
help from any of the parents. It was suggested that to get more parent
involvement/commitment, I put together a contract outlining my expectations
of parents.


Does anyone have a sample of one they might share?  I am having difficulty
figuring out how to word it and what kinds of expectations I should put
forth. 

 

That would really help next season.  I appreciate any help you might offer
so that things will run more smoothly next round.

 

Thank you for a wonderful experience at Maggie Walker Governors school
today!!!

 

Thanks,

Gina
