I/We, the parent(s)/guardian(s) of the above named student, in consideration of the enrollment of my/our child in Galloway Academy do hereby agree to the following:

  1. I understand that this school is governed by a Governing Board.
  2. By my personal participation, I will assist the school in making learning a primary occupation for my child.
  3. I will supervise my child’s homework to ensure that all assignments are completed on schedule. I will not make excuses for late/missing assignments. I will establish a homework location in the home.
  4. I will ensure that my child is dressed in uniform clothing in accordance with the dress code established by Galloway Academy. As stated in the student handbook, if my child comes to school out of uniform, I will bring my student the appropriate clothing as soon as I am contacted.
  5. My child will be sent to school healthy, clean, well-rested and prepared to learn with proper supplies.
  6. I will have two academic conferences by phone, email or in person with my child’s teacher(s) as requested. I will schedule conferences because I am aware that pop-in conferences are not appropriate.
  7. I will volunteer my time according to the needs of the school, which are currently twenty (20) hours per year, by agreeing to accept a fair share of the work to be done as directed by the Governing Board and/or Administration.
  8. I understand that practicing civic responsibility is an important part of the learning experience at the school; therefore, I will provide or arrange for transportation for my child to school-organized volunteer community activities or I will provide reasonable notice to the school if I need assistance to find transportation for my child.
  9. I understand that this contract is an agreement with all other parents in the school to support the faculty, staff and volunteers as they work to help me make my child a productive, cooperative member of the school and community.
  10. I understand that after reasonable interventions with regard to discipline and academics have been attempted without success, the Governing Board has the authority to recommend that a child be withdrawn from Galloway Academy if either of the following circumstances occur:
    • Student’s behavior violates the Code of Student Conduct which I have read and understand;
    • The parent(s) or guardian(s) fail to take responsibility for the conduct of the student or fail to cooperate with the school in efforts to correct the student’s behavior; and/or
    • The student consistently fails to turn in homework, projects, or prepare for tests,   preventing reaching maximum academic potential.
    • I understand that any student suspended or expelled under from a charter school is entitled to enroll in a public school in the district in which the student resides so long as the student would not have been subject to suspension or expulsion under the disciplinary policy of the local school system for the conduct which gave rise to the suspension or expulsion.
  11. I understand the policy of Galloway Academy is to promote students from grade to grade based solely on academic performance.
  12. I will keep the school informed of a phone number and address where I can be reached during daytime hours, and be immediately available to come to the school if requested.
