Q:

Can I drop off my children for classes?

Wednesday Co-op is NOT a drop-off program. A parent must stay on campus and teach or help in classes they are assigned to. Being a part of a co-operative organization means everyone pulls their own weight to maintain a successful program. The only exception is if your student is at least 14 years old and in a high school level class; you must complete a high school drop-off form. These students may be dropped off, however the parent is still required to volunteer once a month at co-op.  **If you have younger siblings attending classes on campus, you may not leave.
