FREQUENTLY ASKED QUEStions
Q1: What's the chaperone situation? If we have a mixed group we will have at least one male and one female chaperone. There will be at least one Berean staff member in each group. We will enlist parents as needed. Preference is given to medical personnel where the number of parents is limited. If a parent would like to travel with the student group, please email the group leader after the student is enrolled.
Q2: What if we don't make a decision by September 1? Most likely, you will only have daytime options available because travel experiences will be at capacity or cancelled because we did not meet the minimum number of participants needed.
Q3: What do I do if we have special circumstances to discuss before signing up? Please email as soon as possible
Q4: What if my student chooses not to participate? First of all, we are trying to offer a variety of experiences that will appeal to all, so we hope this will not be the case. If a student does not participate with the community he/she will be required to do 25 hours of pre-approved community service. If a student does not complete that before final exams, then on the transcript will be seen "IMPACT - failed" instead of "IMPACT - passed". It will NOT affect the Grade Point Average, but it will indicate he/she failed a pass/fail class.
Q5: What if my student does not complete and turn in the journal required for IMPACT? The reflective journal is part of the IMPACT experience. It MUST BE completed and turned in to pass the course.
Q6: Is BCS helping with any of the costs? Yes. Even the "free" options have costs associated with them that we are absorbing. No IMPACT is completely family funded.
Q7: When is payment due?
Daytime Experiences : After enrollment in January, you will be invoiced through myschoolbucks.com. We request all balances for all IMPACT experiences have a zero balance by the first week of February.
Most overnight out of state and out of the country trips:
You will pay the travel company directly. Please follow their payment guidelines. If your trip does not use a travel agency then you will be billed through myschoolbucks.com beginning in October. We ask that you pay at least half by the end of December and that you have a zero balance due by the end of February.
Q8: I have a suggestion for next year. Who do I need to tell? Mrs. Halley
Q9: For daytime activities, what if I sign up for more or less than 4.5 hours? At our discretion we will add or remove a course as needed and notify you and your student
