FINANCIAL AID AND CONDUCT: The school will take the following actions when specific demerit totals
subject to loss of a portion of the aid due to disciplinary issues.
After accumulating 12 demerits, the parent(s) will be notified via letter that their son is in danger of losing part of the financial aid;
After accumulating 20 demerits, a second letter of notification will be sent to the parent(s);
After accumulating 25 demerits, a third letter will be sent to the parent(s) notifying them of the loss of financial aid. The amount of financial aid loss may be as high as 50% of the total aid.
The Disciplinarian will notify the Business Manager when a student reaches the 12-, 20-, and 25-demerit limits.
The loss of financial aid will occur when a student accumulates 25 demerits. The lost aid will be charged back to the tuition account and is due in the month it is removed. For students withdrawing from Elder during the year, the aid and/or scholarship grant will be prorated on a per diem basis, with the balance to be paid in full in order to release academic information to the student’s new school.
Confidentiality: Financial Aid awards are considered confidential. It is expected that families receiving assistance will treat it as such. Disclosure of specifics may impact future awards.
Student Insurance: An insurance policy covering injuries while attending Elder, going to or from Elder, and while participating in supervised extracurricular activities at or away from Elder is required of all students. The insurance fee is paid by Elder. Any student who plans to participate in any interscholastic sport at any time during the school year is required to pay an additional fee.
Special Information on Books, Replacement and Evaluation: All books are loaned to the students. In view of this fact each student is expected to give his books reasonable care; each is held responsible for the books he has. Any loss or damage to them will be charged to the student’s account and payment in full will be demanded at the end of the school year. It should be noted that any student who is responsible for the loss of or damage to the book(s) of another is bound to make restitution to him.
Because of the responsibility each student has with regard to his books, the following precautions should be taken:
