Urban Homeschoolers welcomes charter students and we are vendors for several charters.
NOTE: Our processes for working with charters has been updated. READ THE UPDATED COMMUNITY HANDBOOK TO LEARN MORE (https://urbanhomeschoolers.com/resources/ )
Check our website to view the current list of charters for which we are vendors. If you do not see your charter on our list, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request support. For your account to be credited for your charter funds, you must complete the following before classes begin:
> Provide contact information for your charter teacher
> Fill out the Charter Funds Form (https://urbanhomeschoolers.com/resources/) to let us know how much of your funds you have available for Urban Homeschoolers. If you plan to use charter funds to pay for tutoring, please indicate that on the form as well.
For more information about charters and UHS, refer to our website here: http://urbanhomeschoolers.com/resources/charter-schools/
Charters require that you are approved for funds before classes begin. Be aware that if your child begins classes before they are approved for funds, fees for those class sessions are your responsibility. If you leave your charter before the end of the term, or if your charter does not make payment, responsibility for unpaid charter funds reverts to you.
You are responsible to complete the necessary paperwork, and to communicate with both your charter and with us about your funding. When we receive purchase orders for your account, we credit your account with the notation that it is unpaid. Once we receive payment, it is marked paid. This will help you track the activity on your account.
PLEASE NOTE IF WE DO NOT RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION OF YOUR CHARTER'S CONTRIBUTION TO YOUR CHILD'S TUITION YOU WILL BE BILLED THE FULL AMOUNT. If a charter payment is received after a parent has made a payment a refund will be processed at the next billing cycle.
It is the parent's responsibility to ensure that UHS has the information it needs to bill your account correctly. Payments are processed between the 1st and 6th of each month.
By selecting "I have read and agree," you are agreeing that you have read and agree to this policy as well as the information on our website at the links provided, as well as the Community Handbook section Working with Charter Schools (http://urbanhomeschoolers.com/resources/).
Urban Homeschoolers uses a learning management system, UHS Online, to support our students, parents, and teachers. How this system is used is determined by the age group, subject area, and teaching methods. Teachers may use UHS Online to provide class updates, post homework, and provide content.
Accounts are available for parents, guardians, and students. Charter teachers may be given access to UHS Online only upon parent's request. A unique email is required for each account.
Once you have enrolled your student in classes, set up your account on UHS Online (http://urbanhomeschoolers.com/online/login/). Access to classes is provided on or before the first day of class.
This is a release of liability and waiver of certain legal rights. I, the undersigned parent or legal guardian of the child/children listed above (herein referred to as "Child"), provide consent for my Child to participate in the classes, workshops, training, and/or outings provided by Urban Homeschoolers and other affiliated organizations or companies offering various events at any Urban Homeschoolers facility or remote location. I acknowledge that there are certain risks involved in these programs and I understand these risks and declare that my Child is safely capable of participating in these classes, workshops, training and/or outings. I do hereby release Urban Homeschoolers, its agents, employees or servants, whether paid or volunteer, from any liability related to injuries or accident, which may arise from my Child's participation in any Urban Homeschoolers class, workshop, meeting, or event. In addition, I understand and accept all Urban Homeschoolers policies regarding classes, private lessons, workshops, events and other activities for which my Child is registered/scheduled.
At Urban Homeschoolers, we believe in teachable moments. We strive to find the teachable moment in every situation, and we encourage students and families to do the same. In cases of conflict, we work with each student involved to facilitate dialogue, empathy, and a friendly resolution whenever possible.
On the rare occasion when a resolution cannot be reached, we meet with both parent and child to determine the best possible resolution. It is our policy to create a safe environment for personal expression, points of view, and respect for differing learning styles for all our students.
If a student cannot abide by our policies of inclusion, respect and safety, we will not be able to include that student in our program.
