Weekly tuition should be paid in full to a provider. It is impossible to operate on a day to day
attendance. Especially once absents are limited to 36 a year and the parent have used them all. At that point if the child have used all the absents and miss a day or all week - we do not get pay but must hold their spot not know when they will return. Non working parents are not consistent with using the service and should be reevaluated for continuous of service - if they go a lengthy period not utilizing the service.
please consider paying by the week for the space a child is enrolled for vs daily attendance.
please consider more absentee days annually.
please consider we are not back to normal, and although kids are enrobed they are not always in attendance due to COVID, non working parents who pick and choose when they want to use the service. Yet we still have to hold their spot - because DSS will not close the case during this pandemic.
The staff is working hard trying to adjust to this new curriculum and if $ is coming in because parents have used up all the absents - we can afford to pay the staff their worth for the new trainings, new adjustments, and extra work we are asking from them to meet the requirements of VDOE.
This is a financial burden on the business as we are experiencing this as I type. Parents have used up there absents, have missed days and we can not get paid but yet they can walk back in after a week or 2 of no communication and no tuition payment from neither the parent or DSS.
