Policies

Digital Permission during COVID-19
Due to the need to practice social distancing in relation to the Covid-19 outbreak, I understand that the Tutoring Chicago program will start off as a digital program in the fall of 2020. I understand this means that my child will be expected to connect digitally with his/her assigned tutor through video conferencing, working on academic enrichment on a weekly basis until the in-person tutoring program can resume.

I recognize that Tutoring Chicago will provide a schedule, guidance, resources and best practices for these sessions. I understand that it is my responsibility as a parent/guardian to supervise and facilitate any digital contact between my child and their tutor (video-conferencing, emails, facetime, phone, texts, etc). 

I understand that tutor and student contact should be limited to their tutoring sessions. No connections or communications should take place in-person until facilitated by Tutoring Chicago. 

I understand that once the in-person tutoring program resumes, that my child is expected to attend weekly tutoring sessions at their assigned site on their assigned night. 

General Permission
I give permission for my child to be enrolled in the Tutoring Chicago program. I understand the program is a service to my child and that my child may be dismissed at any time. If my child is to remain enrolled, he or she must attend each session and follow the rules. I understand that attendance is essential to my child's improvement. I will inform the tutor and a Tutoring Chicago staff member if my child is going to be absent. I recognize that tutoring is a resource not to be taken away as a form of punishment.

Academic Data 
I permit Tutoring Chicago and my child's tutor to contact my child's school, teacher(s), and/or school system to attain specific information about my child's academic performance and needs including, but not limited to, report card grades, standardized test scores, homework scores, academic strengths and weaknesses, social/emotional well being, and general classroom performance. I understand that this information may be shared with my child’s tutor in order to aid the learning process. 

Medical Emergency 

In the event of a medical emergency, I grant permission for my child to be transferred to a medical facility for treatment and receive the treatment deemed necessary by the qualified medical staff at that site. I will be responsible for all costs incurred with such treatment(s). I understand that in the event of such an emergency, Tutoring Chicago will make all reasonable attempts to contact the parent/guardian or emergency contact I have listed on this application. 


In consideration of being permitted to participate, I do hereby waive and release Tutoring Chicago and all affiliates, directors, employees and volunteers from any and all claims for injuries, including death, damages, property damage, or loss which may occur on account of participation in the tutoring program, including field trips and special events. 


Media Release I permit Tutoring Chicago to use any photographs or video footage featuring my child or any artwork, writings, or media statements taken or created in connection with the program for any type of publicity or fundraising without requiring further approval. I understand Tutoring Chicago will not publicize my child’s name without parent/guardian advanced approval.


Financial and Legal Information I certify that all legal and financial information in this application is correct and I can provide verification if requested. I understand that this information is confidential and will only be accessible to Tutoring Chicago staff for the purpose of verifying my child’s eligibility for the program.
