Terms and Conditions

Refunds

Students may submit a written application for a refund of the registered course, no later than the date following the commencement of the second class of the course. ABC Youth Coding will process a prorated refund of a course, subject to deductions from paid monies equivalent to $40 multiplied by the number of classes attended by the student (if applicable). Following the second class of the course, no refund or course credit transfer will be provided for the termination of the course.

The student should provide ABC Youth Coding with 7 days notice of any vacation plans in order for ABC Youth Coding to set aside course materials for that student.

Photography release

Occasionally ABC Youth Coding may take photos of students or teachers while they are here, for decorative and/or publication purposes. The same photos may or may not be used in posters and/or newspaper advertisements. You agree to release these photos and allow your son or daughter to appear in them. If not, you must let ABC Youth Coding know immediately.

Behavior

ABC Youth Coding reserves the right to accept, decline to accept or remove any student participating in the program at any point in the term due to his/her behavior problem in this learning environment. If this occurs, tuition for all remaining classes will be wholly refunded.

Tax deduction

Non-Tax Deductible

Lost items

ABC Youth Coding holds no responsibility for lost or stolen personal property.

Severe weather

Severe weather or other emergencies sometimes may cause school’s cancellation. In the event of such cancellation, ABC Youth Coding will make all attempts to reschedule at the discretion of the center. However, if unable to do so due to scheduling conflict, course material will be provided instead.
In the event of a city wide weather alert, class cancellation status will be posted on https://www.abcyouthcoding.com. It is the responsibility of the student/parent to check.

Emergency contact

It is the responsibility of the parents/caregivers to provide two validated phone numbers and/or emails in case of emergencies.

Interaction with class teacher/head teacher(s)
I give permission for my child(ren) to interact with the classroom teacher/headteacher(s) and fellow classmates using the 'Zoom' (cloud meetings) app, including permission to communicate using microphone and camera.


Meeting scheduling 
I understand that by giving permission, ‘meetings’ will be occasional – by invitation only - and that 'attendance' will be sought only by my child’s/children's classroom teacher or teaching assistant.

Consent: Times of Video Conferencing
I understand that my child(ren) will only be invited to meet between the hours on 9:00am and 6pm, Monday to Friday during term time.


Adults downloading/running Zoom Software
I understand that Students under the age of 18 should not go to www.zoom.us or any other website or app store to download the app or create an account because:
(i) they should only be joining Zoom meeting sessions as participants (not separate account holders) through ABCMath’s account;
(ii) minors are not permitted to create an account per Zoom’s Terms of Service.

Parent's Responsibility
I understand that as parent or guardian, I am responsible for supervising the suitability of my child’s/children’s online access, communication and the ‘home’ setting (wherever distance learning is taking place outside of school). This includes ensuring children have a quiet, safe space from which to meet (in an appropriate room), are wearing appropriate clothing, and that there are no age-inappropriate or unlicensed background noises visuals or moving images. I understand that only my child(ren) will join the meeting, and that adults and other children will not be permitted to partake without prior agreement by all parties. Parents are encouraged to supervise (but not appear on screen). Each meeting will end at the teacher’s discretion.

Teaching
I understand that classroom teachers will approach Zoom meetings as being an extension of the classroom learning environment. As such, classroom and school expectations, procedures, policies, and rules will be adhered to as normal - by teachers and children alike. Teachers will facilitate and lead all meetings and will follow ABCMath Academy's behavior policy and classroom rules


General Permission
I give permission for my child(ren) to experience and access learning resources, as deemed suitable and appropriate by the classroom teacher in the normal, recognized classroom learning environment.
By proceeding, I confirm I have read, understood and agree to the above, and that I confirm my consent to my child(ren) using Zoom as outlined.
