16245 Westside Hwy SW, Vashon
PROGRAM ENROLLMENT CONTRACT 2016-17
When you enroll your child in VASHON GREEN SCHOOL you are committing to make the payments according to the Payment Plan that you designate below. If your child stops attending before the school year/session is up, you still owe the full tuition according to the payment schedule. There will be no reduction of payments due to sickness, family vacations, or any other reason.
Families who wish to leave VASHON GREEN SCHOOL before the end of their contract are required to present their reason in writing. They must also attend a conference with VASHON GREEN SCHOOL mentors to discuss their reasons and allow instructors to address any outstanding issues. Appeals regarding the tuition policy must be submitted in writing to VASHON GREEN SCHOOL, which has the authority to make decisions on a case-by-case basis. Homestead staff and families commit to working through conflicts that arise. VASHON GREEN SCHOOL aims to work with families to find the best fit possible for their child(ren). Given the uniqueness of each situation, VASHON GREEN SCHOOL will strive to find solutions that balance the needs of the school with the needs of the family.
As a parent/guardian to a child(ren) in the VASHON GREEN SCHOOL, you also become an important member and role model in this learning community. You play a vital role in creating the container within which the children of VASHON GREEN SCHOOL thrive and grow.
There are a myriad of ways that parents/guardians do this, above and beyond what we define here. Parents are strongly encouraged to sign-up for a role in some of these essential VASHON GREEN SCHOOL practices/activities:
Seasonal Celebrations: Deeply rooted in the natural cycles, these gatherings nurture our connection to each other and the environment that sustains us.
Annual Work Party: An opportunity for the whole family to join with the rhythms of the land on which your child learns and grows. Time to strengthen bonds with other families
Parent Council: A forum to exchange ideas with mentors and other parents. A chance to collaborate in the creation of the culture and curriculum of VASHON GREEN SCHOOL.
Field Trips/Events: Children thrive on seeing the family members of their friends, sharing time together and enjoying each other. Field Trips, Camp-outs and the Year End Ceremony are another way we do this.
Fundraising: A core element in the healthy functioning of this community. All families are expected to participate in the VASHON GREEN SCHOOL Fundraising efforts.
