Content: Fall 2014 R eg istr atio n Handbook It is a privilege to serve the home school community through quality enrichment classes; however, High Country Enrichment Classes (HCEC) is more than just a collection of classes for our children. While this is an important part of our purpose for gathering, it is not the overarching goal. The goal is to build relationships with one another and develop authentic community. Through High Country, God has given us a gift of friendships and support as we travel this path of home schooling. Anytime I walk down the main hall, I see groups of kids playing games or hanging out. I see moms sitting at tables with other moms talking and laughing or praying and seeking help. In every classroom, teachers share their passions from the arts to sciences, mathematics to literature, while also sharing the salvation message and giving opportunity for prayer. Real life occurs in our midst and real answers are given through Jesus in our midst. This is what HCEC is about. This handbook will assist you in discovering the opportunities waiting for your family through HCEC. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us! I look forward to seeing you next semester!! Blessings, Darla Caudle, HCEC Administrator 719.278.9135 www.hche.org [email protected] High Country Home Educators I

If your student has been placed on a list for a reserved position in a continuing class, you must enroll them in that class during your initial registration or forfeit their reserved position. High Demand-Similar (HD-S) classes have restricted enrollment on the first two days of Registration, August 5 & 6, 2014. Additional HD-S classes can be added at Open Enrollment, starting August 7 through September 3, 2014. Please see page 4 for full listing.
Waitlist Questions and Policy: When a class reaches full enrollment, you may elect to put your student on a Waitlist. Enrollment from the Waitlist is not guaranteed. If you choose to go on a Waitlist, you may not be enrolled in another class at that same time period. You may place your student on more than one Waitlist for any hour in which they are not enrolled in another class or on another Waitlist. A Registration Deposit is not required to be placed on a Waitlist; however, once a space opens in the class, the student cannot enroll without the $20 Registration Deposit. See the Registrar to complete enrollment in a Waitlisted class. HCEC Administration reserves the right to accept partial Waitlists, in order of priority, as it deems suitable for a given class. If a class is cancelled by HCEC due to Low Enrollment, affected students who choose to go on a Waitlist will be listed in order of their original registration appointment time. Please do not contact the Teacher about Waitlists. HCEC Administration makes the final decisions concerning class expansions after reviewing many factors. If a class expands, the Registrar will contact you. Class enrollment can change until September 3, 2014.

FIELD TRIP AGREEMENT
Purpose The purpose of the High Country Field Trip Ministry is to enhance the home education of the members of High Country Support Group by seeking to enrich the training process through utilization of our community resources. We believe it is our responsibility as parents to train our children in the ways of the Lord.
Who We Serve Field trips are open to High Country Support Group members. In some cases, non-members: 1) May attend if there are any remaining openings after members have been given first priority, 2) may be required to pay non-member rates, 3) must attend with a High Country member.
Registration Requirements All field trip registrations begin by going to our website at www.hche.org and to the Support Group section, then "Events." Current field trips are listed under "Journeys Field Trips" with the ability to register online. Follow the online directions. The Field Trip Coordinator will contact you by Email (or in some cases, by phone) to solidify your reservation, explain payment, and relate any specific instructions regarding the trip. After registering for a trip, please check your Email frequently as most communication and notifications will be sent to you at the Email address you provide.
Specific Requirements Some field trips have certain criteria required by the site to include age/grade limits, adult-to-child ratios, or academic prerequisites, etc. Therefore, we ask members to comply with these specific requirements as a means to honor the host site. In some instances, concessions can be made. Please contact the Field Trip Coordinator in advance to find out if your special request is an option.
Field Trip Payments and Refunds All field trip payments are made online through the New Life Church payment system. Payments can be made with credit card, debit card or electronic check. Exceptions may be allowed by emailing the Coordinator. All payments must be received by the specified deadline to ensure reservation. All field trips are considered non-refundable unless otherwise noted. In situations of family emergencies or sickness, a monetary refund may be possible, but is not guaranteed. This will be contingent on whether or not the spot can be filled from a waitlist. Please contact the Field Trip Coordinator as soon as you are sure you will not be able to make a field trip at [email protected] This will give the coordinator a chance to try to fill the spot from a waitlist. We cannot honor any refunds from a trip that does not have a waitlist to draw from. The final decision will be made at the discretion of the Field Trip Coordinator.
Cancellations and Waiting Lists If a family or any of its members is unable to attend, it is expected that they will notify the Field Trip Coordinator as soon as possible. If a trip has a waiting list, prompt cancellation will allow another family to participate.
Reservation Deadlines Deadlines are in place to assist the site in preparing for our group. Reservations are considered "closed" on the deadline date. If the trip is full or closed, you may be placed on a waiting list in the event another family should cancel.
Inclement Weather If a field trip is cancelled due to hazardous weather conditions, you will be notified as soon as possible by Email and phone.
Basic Points of Courtesy As we strive to live our lives in a manner pleasing to God and reflect our commitment to Him, we ought to take the time to follow a few simple matters of courtesy when attending a field trip such as appropriate attire, adequate supervision of children, timeliness, etc. Please remember that we are representing our families, churches, the homeschool community, and most importantly the Lord Himself.
Refusals The Field Trip Coordinator reserves the right to refuse anyone the privilege of attending a field trip if they have not followed the field trip policies listed above or are disruptive to the group or site. Unless otherwise noted in the field trip description, parents will be expected to attend field trips with their children or have a designated adult responsible for their children during the field trip.
Questions and Concerns All questions may be directed to the Field Trip Coordinator at [email protected]
