The Service Scholarship Program is offered to parents of full time students at East Liverpool Christian School providing an opportunity for them to reduce tuition cost by completing service hours.
Families are offered a maximum discount of: K – 8 families: $2250 in exchange for 50 hours of service per school year (tuition balance of $3250.00) 9 – 12 families: $3330 in exchange for 74 hours of service per school year (tuition balance of $4170.00) *Preschool tuition is not eligible for tuition service scholarship credit
All service hours must be pre-approved by the appropriate Service Hours Administrator (SHA). In order for service hours to be credited to a family, the service must be pre-approved, documented, and submitted to the office by the Service Hours Administrator who approved and oversaw the task. Service hours are reported monthly in 30 minute increments.
Service hours will be served by adults only, except in pre-approved situations. Student appropriate service hours will be determined before the event by the Service Hours Administrator (SHA).
Ample opportunities for service hours will be scheduled and advertised throughout the school year by the Service Hours Administrators overseeing the events. Service opportunities for each school year will begin in June and conclude in May of the corresponding school year. Each hour served at or on a fundraising event will be equivalent to 1.5 service hours (similar to time and a half). Service hours will not be granted for attendance at meetings, parent-teacher conferences, school open house or orientation events. These are encouraged and are considered to be parent responsibilities rather than acts of service.
For families with multiple children at the school, no more than 130 hours per year will be required in exchange for the maximum discount for their children.
Service agreements will be made with families prior to the start of each school year. Any unfulfilled service hours at the end of the school year are considered unpaid tuition and will be billed to the family at the rate of $45 per unserved hour.
