Parent Job

The teachers are the only paid employees of Multnomah Playschool; the rest of the jobs are filled by the parents.  Each family, regardless of how many children they have enrolled in the school, is required to fulfill the responsibilities of one assigned family job.  During the enrollment process, each family completes a family job information sheet, indicating their skills and abilities as well as their top three job choices.  The level of responsibility and time commitment varies for each job.  Some examples of family jobs include Parent Teacher Scheduler, Auction Procurement Team, Special Events Coordinator, and many more, including positions on the MPS Board such as Secretary, Treasurer and Class Representative.  The Jobs Coordinator works to match each family with a job suited to them, considering family factors such as a new baby, work outside the home, physical limitations, etc.
