How to Renew Your Planet Homeschool Membership
Our co-op’s policies evolve over time in response to changing circumstances and feedback from our co-op's members and instructors. All renewing members should review our co-op’s Community Expectations and the policies linked to therein prior to each membership renewal period.
Renewing your membership and registering for next semester’s classes is a four-step process:
Step 1: Update Your Family Profile.
Step 1a: Review our co-op’s Community Expectations and the policies linked to therein with your students.
All students must sign a Student Agreement before the first day of class.
Step 1b: COVID-19 and In-Person Classes:
A Vaccination Affidavit and Assumption of Risk is required for those who wish to attend in-person classes & events. This policy reflects the preferences of our co-op’s members and instructors as well as guidance from public health officials.
Those who are signing up only for online classes & events do not need to complete this form.
Members who have previously completed a Vaccination Affidavit and Assumption of Risk do not need to fill out a new one unless a household member’s status has changed.
Step 2: Pay Your Membership Fee.
Step 3: Wait for Your Membership to Be Updated
One of our co-op’s volunteers will update your account from Membership Pending to Current Member. Most updates happen within a day but other demands on our volunteers’ time may occasionally result in longer delays.
Step 4: Register for Classes
You will then be ready to register for classes …as soon as registration opens for current members.
If you have updated your Family Profile and paid your membership fee, but your family’s entry in our co-op’s Member Directory is still marked as Membership Pending or as Membership In-Process:
Double-check to make sure you updated your Family Profile and paid your membership fee.
If your family’s entry in our co-op’s Member Directory is marked as “Membership In-Process” then at least one step was missing the last time your account was reviewed.
Has it been at least 3 days since you updated your Family Profile and paid your membership fee?
Most of the time, your account will be updated within a day, but sometimes our co-op’s volunteers need to prioritize other parts of their lives, so please allow them at least 3 days to review your account.
It is helpful but not necessary to include a list of which steps you’ve completed and when (if known).
- If you have not renewed your membership before the start of the next semester, your account will be “parked.”
- To re-active your account, you’ll need to renew your co-op membership.
- If you are taking a short break from or know you will not be returning to PHS, please let our co-op’s Lead Volunteers know via an email to [email protected].
