Placement Policy Agreement
Our goal is to place students at their proper grade level and in the appropriate class. We believe teachers are the most knowledgeable of their students, and we depend on their professional judgment for recommendations in the formation of new class rosters. We believe this is preferable to having the office staff arbitrarily form a class list. Recognizing that these decisions are not always easy and often difficult, guidelines are used that attempt to satisfy the needs of the majority while remaining sensitive to the possibility of special circumstances.
***No requests for classroom placement will be accepted.***
I pledge my cooperation and support of my child’s placement in the class determined to be best by CFA. I also understand that my child will not be placed in a classroom until all forms have been completed and submitted to the Admissions Department and all financial obligations are met.
The following will assist, but not be the only evaluative measures, in determining formation of class rosters.
1. Academic readiness shall be considered so as not to impede progress of the individuals or group.
2. Interpersonal relationships shall be weighed to enhance a classroom environment that is easily managed.
3. Developmental concerns shall be evaluated to promote the greatest possibility for the group’s advancement.
4. Factors relative to required teacher-pupil ratio, proper mix of sexes, and potential teacher-pupil personality conflicts, shall be deemed significant when applicable.
5. Child must be of age to enter respective grade level as of September 1 of current school year.
6. All students entering the K3 5-day program and up must be fully potty trained prior to the first day of school.
Statement of Cooperation
1. I pledge my cooperation and support to the teachers and administrators of Christ Fellowship Academy in the training and discipline of my child. I understand that paying the tuition and necessary fees are not the only parental responsibilities I have in educating my child. I recognize my need to contribute in service and prayer to properly share in the support of the Christ Fellowship Academy ministry.
2. I will attend, to the best of my ability, the parent/teacher meetings and school activities as a demonstration of my cooperation and support for the Christ Fellowship Academy ministry in their effort to educate my child. I pledge my loyalty to the Christ Fellowship Academy ministry. To ensure that I do not diminish this ministry’s effectiveness or reputation, I will bring any and all questions and criticisms to the proper school authority.
3. I understand my child may be dismissed from Christ Fellowship Academy at any time he/she is found to be out of harmony with the rules and policies of the school. Further, we realize as parents/guardians, we also must be in harmony with the rules and policies of the school, and if we are in discord, our children will be removed from Christ Fellowship Academy.

6. I give my child permission to take part in all activities including sports and school-sponsored trips off campus. Parents who would like to attend and be a chaperone during their child’s field trip or day trip must complete a background check form and be cleared prior to the field trip. No CFA parent will be allowed to chaperone or attend field trips without a cleared background check. (Notices and permission forms will be provided for field trips and class trips).
7. Beyond the reasonable care I can expect for my child at Christ Fellowship Academy, I will not hold Christ Fellowship Academy or its employees or Christ Fellowship or its employees, liable in case of injury or death to my child.

10. I pledge my cooperation in bringing my child to school on time each day unless an emergency occurs preventing me from doing so. I understand that it is my responsibility to notify the school regarding absences of my child(ren).
11. I am aware of the tuition on the schedule of tuition and fees, and agree to pay this amount.

I am aware that report cards will not be issued to students whose accounts are 30 days or more past due. I am aware if my account becomes 60 days past due my student(s) will be suspended from class. I also understand that a $50.00 fee will be charged to my account for any items returned by the bank.
