Remaining Payment Schedule for Students and Chaperones
*Balance notices will be sent home throughout the year reflecting payments and any fundraiser credits. Parents can choose to pay the entire balance in one lump sum at any time between September 5, 2014 - February 24, 2015. If a monthly fee schedule is needed, please notify [email protected] so that it may be noted in her records. The initial $100.00 deposit should be made and then monthly payments of $60 - $65 (depending upon final cost) should be sent in each month from October – February.
All 8th Grade students who meet the academic & behavior requirements listed below who have also completed paperwork and payment schedule are eligible.
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS: Please see the academic requirements and disciplinary infractions that will exclude you from this trip:
•Failure to maintain a grade average of 80% or better in all classes, with the exception of high school credit classes (Coord. Algebra, CoAG and Spanish). In these high school classes you must maintain an average of 74% or better. Averages will be monitored at the 12 week progress report mark in October and grade worthiness reminder issued. Final grade worthiness will be determined at the end of the first semester in December. Students/parents will be notified if the student is no longer eligible for the trip based on academic status when report cards are issued in January.
•The grade cut off will be at the end of semester one in December; however, behavior will be monitored up until the time of departure and also on the trip. We cannot take any students on the trip with which we have concerns about potential misconduct.
•** Please remember any student removed for grades and/or behavior will not be eligible for any portion of a refund of monies paid to date. This includes the initial deposit plus any additional payments made on the payment schedule. Additionally, any credits earned through fund raising would be forfeited to the general field trip budget.
