2019 - 2020 Student and Parent Contracts 

42. *

STUDENT CONTRACT

     I am responsible for reading or having the DasCHE Scholastic Co-op Handbook read to me.  I have discussed the Student Guidelines with my parents and I understand what is required of me.  I recognize that a team of adults and parents has established these policies and conduct rules for the benefit of all participants.  I understand that I am responsible for making all possible effort to honor and obey the standards set forth by the co-op. I understand that I am accountable for my conduct at the co-op and for being prepared for class by doing my assignments at home.

     I understand that the Co-op is a place for well-behaved children who are reasonably capable of governing themselves by biblical standards.  I recognize that the tutors have volunteered to give me and all the other children in the classrooms the opportunity to enjoy learning new skills.  I am expected to make it easy for the tutors to teach me and all the other students in the room with me.

     I understand that consequences exist for the manner in which I behave at Co-op or Co-op related activities.  When I conduct myself in a way that is pleasant, mannerly, and shows love to God and others, I have given myself the opportunity to learn new skills, make new friends, and build a good reputation for myself.  I have honored my word, my family, and my commitment to Christ.  When I conduct myself in a way that is unpleasant, ill-mannered, or unloving, I tear down those same opportunities, and will be disciplined according to the DasCHE Scholastic Co-op Handbook.

Each student who will attend Co-op should  indicate their consent to this contract by typing their name(s) and today's date.
