FAQs

Q:

How do I become a member of REACH?

A:

When you decide you are ready to commit to REACH, simply fill out the "Request Membership" form located on our public webpage on the navigation bar on the left. It is very important that you read over our Membership Guidelines, Statement of Faith, and FAQs BEFORE requesting membership. Your application will then be reviewed by our Leadership Board. You will be notified if you are approved.

Q:

What will it cost my family to attend REACH co-op?

A:

REACH co-op is a very budget-friendly co-op. There is an annual membership registration fee of $50.00 per family. Class fees will be minimal to no-cost. An example would be during Session 1, 2 of your child's classes may have a $5.00 supply fee, but the other 2 may not have any fees at all. Parents who choose to teach are encouraged to keep supply fees as minimal as possible. Class fees are not to exceed $15.00 unless there is pre-approval from all parents whose children would be attending said class. There will also be various field trips that may require payment throughout the year. Although we would love to have each family attend, field trips are not mandatory.

Q:

What do my responsibilities include as a member of REACH?

A:

As a member of REACH, you are volunteering your time to teach or help in a class for 3 periods each week throughout the co-op year.

Each family will be assigned a closing clean-up duty that they will be responsible for each session. High School students will also be assigned tasks as needed.

Q:

Do I have to sign my children up for all 4 classes?

A:

Yes. Your children do need to sign up for all 4 classes each session.

Q:

My family is unable to make it to REACH today, what should I do?

A:

If you are a teacher, please contact one of your helpers to see if they can cover your class during that period. If they are able to, please supply them with a lesson plan. Contact Amanda Scott to make her aware of the changes. If none of your helpers are able to take over your class, please contact Amanda Scott so that she can make necessary changes.

If you are a helper, simply contact Amanda Scott and make her aware that you are unable to attend. She will find someone to fill in for you.

Q:

Is there a sick policy for co-op and other REACH events?

In case of illness, please notify Amanda Scott.

If you or your child comes to co-op with any of these symptoms, you will be asked to leave. If your child develops any of these symptoms during co-op, you will be notified immediately.

Q:

What is the inclement weather policy for co-op?

A:

For severe weather and snow days, please follow the Laurel School District closures. If there are only delays, this will not affect co-op since we do not start until 11:00am.
