Financial and Religious requirements for each class at EAL

The requirements below are copied from The Authorized User Form and The Family Agreement Form. These forms, and two others not listed in detail below, are completed online at the beginning of each year by a parent and/or guardian who has a student attending EAL. The Authorized User Licensed Agreement covers how the homework coursepacks are used and handled by each student and family and is not listed below. Also, the Required Writing Books Form, which only applies to Middle School and High School students, is not listed below.

2022-2023 Authorized User Form for ___________________’s EAL class

Three forms must be completed and submitted in order to attend the class and qualify for your homework coursepacks.

(1) The Authorized User Form

(2) The Authorized Users License Agreement

(3) The Family Agreement

After your three submissions, you will be invoiced for the Homework Coursepacks payment through secure software provided by Licensor. For your information, paying on-line via secure software is more secure than paying by paper check or cash. (You will be invoiced for registration by your Director.)

These documents must be renewed according to all the terms herein each year by all class attendees.

By completing and submitting, you agree to the following statements:

I contract to commit to the class for the entire nine month school year. If I withdraw from the class before the year is over, I acknowledge that I am obligated to pay the remainder of the monthly tuition for my student(s). By completing this form, I agree to these requirements and I acknowledge that to violate them constitutes a legal and ethical breach of contract.

This requirement does not apply to students who move out of the area and, therefore, cannot attend the class. This requirement does not include students with special needs or learning differences whose needs cannot be met in the class after attempting several accommodations. Parents and teachers are required to sign an Intervention Checklist and Form for these students.

The Eclectic Academy of Learning welcomes and extends kindness to all children and to their parents who are endeavoring to home educate them. I acknowledge that The Eclectic Academy of Learning teaches from a classical, pre-modern conservative Christian worldview. This Christian worldview includes, but is not limited to, the inerrancy and validity of Scripture as outlined in the Holy Bible, the traditional view of marriage between one man and one woman, distinct gender classification from birth of male and female, and the sanctity of life of every living human and unborn child. I understand that I am not required to personally hold to this worldview to enroll my child or children, but that this is the worldview of the Academy, and that I will not try to impose my personal beliefs and/or my child's or children's personal beliefs upon the Academy and those who attend it. Such impositions of personal beliefs include, but are not limited to, wearing jewelry or makeup and things like these that are uniquely and culturally characteristic of the opposite sex of one’s gender at birth, and wearing or displaying symbols or insignia and things like these which promote positions that are culturally opposed to the traditional, classical and pre-modern conservative Christian worldview of the Academy.

It is the heart of The Eclectic Academy of Learning to accommodate and help special needs students. However, if I am the parent of a special needs child, I understand that if the Director of the class feels that the needs of my child cannot be met in this classroom setting or that my child’s behavior is a continual disruption to the class, I will be required to pull my child from the class without being required to pay tuition for the year. I will not, however, receive a refund for registration, coursepack fees, or previously paid tuition. I also understand that this applies to any child who is a continual disruption to the class whether he/she is a special needs student or not.

I will not hold the director, any teacher, the facility, or anyone associated with Jill Dixon's Eclectic Academy of Learning responsible for any damage and/or loss to my child’s property or injury to my child.

I understand that the homework coursepack fee is $79 per student and is nonrefundable. I understand that the homework coursepacks fee is for two semesters, and coursepacks are issued prior to each respective semester only to students who are actively attending the class.

2022-2023 Family Agreement for _________________________________'s EAL class

Three forms must be completed and submitted in order to attend the class and qualify for your homework coursepacks.

(1) The Authorized User Form

(2) The Authorized Users License Agreement

(3) The Family Agreement

After your three submissions, you will be invoiced for the Homework Coursepacks payment through secure software provided by Licensor. For your information, paying on-line via secure software is more secure than paying by paper check or cash. (You will be invoiced for registration by your Director.)

These documents must be renewed according to all the terms herein each year by all class attendees.

As the PARENT, I understand and agree to the following:

The Eclectic Academy of Learning is designed to enhance the education of my children, but I am primarily responsible for their education and its implementation.

As the parent, I am the primary teacher of my children and will ensure that they complete their work to the best of their abilities. If the work cannot be completed, I will write a note to the teachers specifying why it could not be completed and sign it. I will also write excused on the assignment sheet. Otherwise, I will initial each subject box on the weekly assignment sheets to indicate my student has completed his work to my satisfaction. I understand that my student is allowed only 3 excuses for work per semester and after this, I must meet with the Director - unless an Adaptation Plan has been set up. (The allowance of only three excuses does not apply to K5-3rd grade students, also known as Explorers.)

I understand that class tuition for August through April tuition is due by the 15th of each month, and tuition not received by the 22nd of each month will result in a late fee of $25.

I understand this class uses the Thinkwave grading system. I am responsible for my password and checking my student’s grades by the 30th of each month to keep up with his/her progress. Any corrections that need to be made on Thinkwave must be brought to the attention of the Director by the 5th and 30th of each month. Corrections cannot be made after that time. I will contact the Director immediately about any grading issues. (Explorers will not use Thinkwave.)

As the parent, I can choose to not have my student’s grades recorded on Thinkwave. (4th-5th graders can also opt to not have test grades recorded on Thinkwave. Please let the Director know immediately if you choose this option.)

I understand that I will be assigned Lunch Duty and Art Duty approximately every 6-8 weeks, and it is highly crucial for the efficient running of the class that I am present for my duty. I will be notified by email at least 2 weeks before my duty, and I know I must notify the Director if I cannot be present.

As the PARENT and STUDENT, We understand and agree to the following classroom rules:

Cell phones, iPods, and other electronic devices cannot be used on campus at any time. If a teacher sees a student with an electronic device, it will be taken by the teacher. This also includes lunch time and breaks. In emergency situations, students must receive permission from a teacher to use their phone.

Romantic relationships between students are not allowed during class hours. This includes discussion of these relationships or displays of affection of any kind.

Tobacco and vaping products are not permitted on campus.

Profanity, unclean language, unclean gestures, ridiculing and/or making fun of other students or teachers are forbidden as well as discussion of any activity that violates the rules of the class.

Students will not be allowed to use the restroom during class instruction.

Students will abide by the dress code, and if they come dressed out of code, a parent will be called.

Lunches must be supplied by parents. Students will not have access to eating utensils or a microwave and are not allowed to leave campus during lunch.

No physical contact will be allowed during lunch, and shoes must be worn at all times.

No food or beverages are allowed in class. Students with health issues may have a closed container of water.

Students must raise hands to speak in class during teacher instruction. Parents of chronic talkers and disturbers will be notified.

Students are not allowed to miss more than twice per semester unless the absence is excused by the Director.

It is very important that students arrive on time to prevent disturbance in the classroom. Three tardies = one unexcused absence.

Students are not allowed to discuss tests or homework grades among themselves.

The classroom experience of this Academy is of vital importance to each student’s education. Therefore, parents and students must insure classroom attendance except in the case of unforeseen emergencies. If a student has more than 2 absences per semester, his spot may be given to someone on the waiting list. A student with more than 2 absences will receive 0’s for additional absences.

Students understand that they are responsible for turning in missed work and making up tests when absent. Each student must turn in missed work or make up tests on the day he returns to class. Made up work will not be accepted after that. The Director may excuse work under specific circumstances.

Students are assigned clean up duty approximately one time a month and are required to remain after class on that day. A cleanup schedule will be e-mailed to parents the week before their student has clean-up.

Students are given one warning each class if one of the above rules is broken. If the student breaks a rule again during the same class, parents will be contacted.

Parents are responsible for any damages done to church property.
