Academic Challenge Misc. Info:

  1. Participants should have consistent attendance. 
  2. We ask students to be respectful during meetings and exude positive behavior in class. The parent volunteers are not hosting classes as a form of babysitting.
  3. The schedule is subject to change. The Chairs will email you if there is a change. 
  4. Parents must volunteer 2 hours per challenge you are registered for  ( except if you have 2+ students attending the same challenge  – 2 hours will suffice)
  5. Some academic challenges will have a fee associated with the program. For example, if your child goes to regionals, the student is expected to handle their own expenses. 
  6. Our academic challenges are a parent led program. Be kind when asking about the Chair(s) about the challenge.
