Policies & Procedures
The following procedures and guidelines have been established for the After-School Enrichment programs sponsored by the Sharon Public Schools for the 2017 – 2018 school year:
Acceptance will be on a first-come/first-served basis. Should a class sell out, a waiting list will be created.
Each program has been scheduled according to the instructor’s availability, as well as the facility in which the class will be held.
Activities are run only if school is in session. Classes are held on Early Release Days. In the event of postponement, due to weather conditions or instructor unavailability, class may be extended at the end of the scheduled session.
All Community Education Programs must be pre-paid in full.
The Sharon Public Schools reserves the right to terminate or limit a child’s attendance in a program when, in the judgment of the staff, the child’s behavior is inappropriate.
All programs are covered under the Town of Sharon’s liability insurance policy while the programs are in session.
Programs will be held only if there is sufficient enrollment to financially support them.
Due to prior financial obligations, tuition is non-refundable. Refunds will only be given in the event of class cancellation, or if the class is over-subscribed.
We do not make up classes for absent students, we will make up classes for instructor absences.
All returned checks will be subject to a service charge, in accordance with the Town of Sharon, Treasurer’s Office.
It is the responsibility of parents or guardians to notify the Community Education office at 781-784-1574 prior to 2:00 PM, if their child will be absent from the class. Communication with the child’s school does not reach us.
If a student has an outstanding tuition balance in any Community Education Program, he/she will not be eligible to participate.
