The Parent Involvement Program (PIP) allows ECS to provide additional help in the school without increased tuition costs. All families work a one-hour PIP service hour per week or opt out of PIP by paying to hire additional help. Fees due are listed on enrollment applications, and payment is due by the first day of school.
In the event that a family has a conflict with their scheduled PIP hour, they should arrange to switch PIP assignments with another parent. Parents who forget to fulfill their PIP service, or are unable to work a PIP service hour but have not found a substitute, will be required to pay $25.00 for the missed PIP.
If sudden illness impacts a PIP, please call at least three people who may be able to substitute. If a reasonable effort has been made to find a replacement but none can be found and the family has called the office so the teacher can be notified, the missed PIP fee may be waived.
