    Marion Afterschool Programd Fee Schedule for 2020-2021

     

    PAYMENT PROCEDURE:  Marion Afterschool Programs will accept personal check or money order at the site.  All checks should be payable to MCSB (Marion County School Board) and must include your address and a local phone number.  Starter checks and checks over $300 will not be accepted.  Marion Afterschool Programs also accepts credit/debit card payments online; however, when using these options, a non-refundable convenience fee of $1.50 applies.

     

    • All payments are due in advance. Payment is due on Friday for the following week with a grace period until Monday night at 6PM. Please refer to the payment schedule provided below.  All dates are subject to change based on school calendar changes.
    • Per District Policy, Marion Afterschool Programs cannot extend credit. Therefore, it is unacceptable for payment to be made late more than 4 times in a school year. Payments made on Monday after 6PM at the site or after 11:59PM online are considered late.  A $10 late fee will be accessed to your account.  Weekly fees not received by Tuesday will result in a dismissal notice and the student will not be permitted to attend on Wednesday. The following steps will be taken for each late payment:
    • Late Payment # 1 – Your Site Manager will notify you of your first late fee.
    • Late Payment # 2 – Your Site Manager will notify you of your second late fee.
    • Late Payment # 3 – Your Site Manager will provide you with a letter indicating your third late fee. Notice will also warn your child will be dismissed if a fourth late fee occurs.
    • Late Payment # 4 – Your Site Manager will inform you that effective Monday of the following week, your child will no longer attend Marion Afterschool Programs.  You will be provided with a list of child care facilities in your area.
    • All fees are designated as “FLAT RATE FEES” meaning a single-fixed fee charged weekly for service regardless of usage.
    • Example… If your child is out ill for a week, you are still required to pay the flat rate fee to hold his/her spot.
    • Example… If your child only attends 2 days in a week, you are still required to pay the FULL weekly rate.

     

    Reminder… Marion Afterschool Programs does not accept cash.

     

     

    REFUND POLICY:  The only time a refund will be given is when students withdraw from the program. Refunds of $10 or less will not be given.  No claims for refunds will be made more than 30 days after the withdrawal date.

    FEE RECOVERY:  Checks returned for insufficient funds will be submitted to an outside agency for collection.  Fees for insufficient fund checks will be made directly to the agency, not to Marion Afterschool Programs. The Site Manager will provide you with the contact information for the agency when a check is returned. Marion Afterschool Programs will only accept money orders and online credit/debit card for future payments.

    EMERGENCY DROP-IN:  An “emergency” is considered any unplanned event without special arrangement.  Emergencies may not exceed six times per school year.

    EARLY DISMISSAL FEES:  Children in need of child care only on Early Release days will pay $30 for their first child and $10 for each additional sibling, per occurrence. Fees are payable in advance. This is NOT counted as an emergency drop-in. All emergency contact information must be provided in advance.

    LATE PICK-UP FEE:  A late pick-up fee of $10 is charged for each 15 minutes after 6PM, measured by the School Clock.

    * 6:00-6:15 = $10.00 per child * 6:16-6:30 = $20.00 per child * 6:31-6:45 = $30.00 per child * 6:46 = Abandoned Child Procedure Initiated.  Children who remain on site after 6:46PM will  be released into the custody of a law enforcement officer.  We reserve the right to dismiss your child from the program after  three late pick-ups.

    SUBSIDIZED CHILD CARE:  Marion Afterschool Programs offers a subsidized rate for qualifying families.  Please see your Site Manager for details.
