All about TEACH
The structure of TEACH
TEACH YEARLY MEMBERSHIP
Your TEACH Membership covers expenses needed to maintain the
main organization of TEACH including, but not limited to, the following:
*Insurance coverage related to all TEACH events and activities including Athletics, Co-Op, Field Trips, etc.
*Per family membership fee to the website company to maintain the website and domain.
*All paypal fees accrued so that we can offer the convenience of accepting credit cards.
*PO Box fees because we do not have a physical address for our organization.
*Annual non-profit status fees.
*Board approved annual budget for various committees.
Under the umbrella of TEACH, several of our committees also charge a fee to cover the expenses of that department.
*IN ADDITION TO YOUR TEACH MEMBERSHIP FEE*
Elizabethton and Johnson City Co-Ops
each charge an additional fee per semester per family.
This covers many expenses including the use of their facility, cleaning supplies and educational resources needed to be successful. Every member is a volunteer, no one is paid a salary. All expenses are used to maintain the Co-Op program.
TEACH Athletics charges $35-$75 per student athlete.
This, as well as gate fees and fundraisers, covers the use of the many facilities needed to run a successful athletic program for practices and games. It covers the purchase of uniforms and gear and pays the officials that work the games. All coach staff and Athletic directors are volunteers and no one is paid a salary.
Our smaller committees may charge a minimal fee simply to cover the cost of operation. We are a non-profit organization so all income is designated to an expense.
