Payment Policies

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

  • Unexpected loss of primary source of income due to unemployment (must provide documentation)

 

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 & Drop/Add Period

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. 20% Class Deposits and Program Registration Fees are Non-Refundable; however, if a class is dropped within the Drop/Add period, you will not be responsible for the remaining 80% of the class fee. 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.

Illness Policy
  1. Please do not come on campus if you have:

    • a fever above 99.5 degrees

Mobile Device "Away for the Day" Policy

In order to preserve a learning and community environment free from unnecessary distraction, and due to the limited time that our program meets each week, we are implementing this mobile device “Away for the Day” policy at Class Source beginning the 24/25 program year. (See the Away for the Day initiative at AwayfortheDay.org).

We believe that students can maximize learning time and build positive social connections by being present with others.

  1. Student cell phones and all mobile devices (smart watches, internet capable small devices) shall be TURNED OFF and placed in the CELL PHONE STORAGE pockets on the door in each classroom and the study hall/sanctuary area, or zipped inside of their backpacks (again OFF) and out of sight. No phones on person, in pockets, or purses.

  2. If the Instructor wants the students to use their devices for an academic reason during class, the instructor will give students devices, monitor the use, and then return them to the storage pockets or backpack.

  3. Students may retrieve their devices at the end of class and go to their next class where they will deposit their phone/device in the storage pocket or backpack once again. (Repeat until their schedule is over.)

  4. Cell phones and all mobile devices can be turned back on when time to leave and used to communicate directly with parents/friends who are assisting in transportation.

  5. While phone/mobile device usage is not permitted during the lunch assembly from 12:50 - 1:10 PM, staff and student leadership will be leading a short devotional and fun group talks/activities/games in efforts to develop community. Student are invited to engage at their level of interest while they eat.

  6. If a student needs to make an emergency call during the day they are to come up to the admin table and use the Class Source phone or ask the instructor for permission to use their phone.

  7. Parents can call the Class Source phone number (813) 444-3920 for any emergencies that arise during their student’s class hours. Admin will relay all messages to your student immediately. Students will be able to check their phones BETWEEN CLASSES.

  8. Students with a need of their mobile phone for medical reasons (documented) will be given special exceptions.

  9. Breaking the policy will result in confiscation of the device by staff/admin. Devices will be placed in a lock box and labeled. The student can retrieve the device at the end of the day and parents will be advised.

  10. This policy does not include large tablets and laptop computers that are needed for work in classes or study hall areas.

Study Hall Policy

For the safety of our Class Source community, students are not permitted to be unsupervised on campus.

 

Any student who has a "gap period" between classes (a class session in which they are not enrolled in a class and yet remain on campus) must either have a parent or adult guardian present on campus supervising the student OR be enrolled in Study Hall for any class period during which they will be on campus but not attending a class.

 

Study Hall is not designed for 1st grade and under. Students in Study Hall need to be able to sit for an hour calmly, without needing to be escorted to the bathroom, etc. Study Hall is monitored but with safety and academic attention; it is not an emotional care situation.

Study Hall takes place in a designated area of the main building only, and students are expected to report to Study Hall on time and to remain in the Study Hall area for the remainder of the class period. They are not permitted to roam the campus or to leave the Study Hall area without permission from the Director or assigned Study Hall supervisor. Wi-Fi is available in the Study Hall area. Students within the Study Hall area may socialize quietly and/or eat their lunch or a snack, but will expected to respect the other classes going on nearby and to clean up their area before leaving.

Study Hall fees (year-long) are $100 per student per class period Study Hall is in use. For semester or quarter-long use of Study Hall, an adjusted rate would apply. You can register for Study Hall by adding it to your cart during your Registration process.
