Number of service points required is based on # of children from each family:

·       1 child – 6 points per semester

·       2 children – 7 points per semester

·       3 children – 8 points per semester

·       4 children – 9 points per semester

 

Here are several key points under member obligation within the by-law policies.   

Parent On Duty is required for all families, except for the teachers and board members.  Each family is to complete at least ONE session per semester. Each Parent On Duty session helps you earn THREE service points. 

 

- Four parents' meeting will be held every school year (2 meetings per semester).  One parent from each family is required to attend the parents' meeting at least once per semester.  (This will help you to be informed of the latest development and update as well as to earn you ONE service point for each parents meeting.)

 

-  Donation is welcomed and can be in kind or monetary.  Service points will be awarded based on the value (i.e.$10 for ONE service point) and will be capped at 3 service points. 

 

-  Parents On Duty Schedule is posted weekly at the Message Board near the Teacher’s Lounge entry.  We typically have 4 families to serve on POD per week.

 

- The services points status is updated and posted each week at the Message Board near the Teacher’s Lounge entry.  Feel free to check out your service points status.

 

 

- Families that have not met their service point requirement will be assessed $10 per service point at the end of the semester during the registration.

4th Period

 

CNSCS is accredited by the Illinois State Board of Education as a foreign language school. And with this accreditation come requirements, one of them being that we need to meet a certain number of instruction hours per school year. This is where 4th period (also known as the Extracurricular Period) comes in. Each student starting from 1st grade and above needs to pick an activities class to fulfill these credit hours. Registration for a 4th period class is mandatory for Grades 1 and up. 

 

If you cannot decide which activity to pick at the time of registration, we will assist you to find the most appropriate 4th period class based on the child's age and interest.
