Ultimate Parent Guide
Financial Policies

PAYMENT/FEES

Class Source bases its annual budget on the number of students enrolled in the program. Therefore, parents are required to commit payment for their students for the entire school year by either providing payment up front, or using the post-dated check option. Many classes fill to capacity quickly and require waiting lists. Please be sure that your class choices are appropriate before registration, as refunds will not be given in order to ensure program longevity. (See Refund Policy below.)

 

Exceptions to this policy include:

  • Death of a parent
  • Moving more than 30 miles from a location
  • Parent becoming unemployed

 

No exceptions are given for the following reasons:

  • Child re-enrolled in school
  • Child is tired of the program
  • Child has too many other activities

 

Please prayerfully consider this commitment before applying. You will be held liable for payment for the full year after the second class date.

 

REFUND POLICY

We realize that from time to time a student is placed in a class that is not a “fit.” Therefore, we do allow a student to drop a class within the first two class dates. This means that before midnight on the second class date ( whether it is a one day a week class or a two day a week class ), the parent may notify the instructor or director IN WRITING, via email or in person, and indicate that the class will be dropped. A refund of 80% of the class fee will be issued for the class. NO REFUND FOR ANY REMAINING CLASS FEES WILL BE GIVEN AFTER THIS POINT FOR ANY REASON OTHER THAN THOSE STATED ABOVE.

 

To minimize the chances of this occurring, it is expected that parents will speak with the instructor regarding any concerns before registration. Many classes fill quickly. We ask you to keep this in mind before taking a spot on the roster.

 

Accountability

ADHERENCE TO THE CODE

Parents are responsible for their own children’s behavior to ensure they are acting in accordance with the Student Life Code and all Class Source policies. Any student or parent who will not abide by the Code of Conduct will be asked to leave the program without refund.

 

THE DRESS CODE

Parents must dress modestly adhering to the Dress Code, and to ensure their students do as well. The following policy will be in place for violation of dress code.

 

  • Offense #1 - Parent will be called to bring the student proper dress. The student will not be in class while waiting.
  • Offense #2 - Parent will be called to bring the student proper dress and $25 cash.
  • Offense #3 - Student will not be permitted back to Class Source.

 

Contact BOD member Holly Brown at 813-777-8350 with any questions.

 

It is assumed that parents will provide sufficient oversight to ensure their students conduct themselves honorably and adhere to the Code of Conduct while they are at Class Source.

 

Class Source is designed to provide instruction to a willing audience of self-disciplined young men and women. Because of the concentrated classes and considerable student preparation outside of class, students who lack the self-discipline or adult supervision necessary will find success difficult and are advised to seek other home-school options.

 

Students and Parents will act in such a way that their words and actions promote the unity and encouragement of fellow students.

 

Students and Parents will avoid acting in such a way that is considered disrespectful, offensive, immoral, intimidating or rude.

 

Students and Parents will avoid gossiping to or about others.

 

HANDLING CONFLICTS:

Any question or conflict should be addressed directly with the instructor or offending party, in person if at all possible.


If assistance is needed after this step has been taken, the Director will arrange to meet with both parties and facilitate a resolution in line with Class Source policies.


If a resolution is not found, the Board of Directors may be approached in Written Format within one week of the above steps.
