7.  TERMINATION FEE

Students departing during the school year

The school expects at least one term's notice in writing of a student's departure date. Failure to meet this obligation will most likely mean that the fees for the next term will be charged.

The decision on this payment will be at the discretion of the School Board.


Students departing at the end of the school year

The school expects notice in writing before the end of Term 3 if a student is leaving at the end of the school year. Failure to meet this obligation will most likely mean that the fees for the first term of the following year will be charged as plans for the next year will be in place by then.

 

The decision on this payment will be at the discretion of the School Board.
