As between each of the Releasees and me, I will be solely responsible for any and all medical and related bills that my child/children may incur because of any injury, as well as costs related to loss or damage to my property, that my child/children may sustain as a result of his/her participation in any Flint Community Education Initiative Program, including those sustained on the premises where any Flint Community Education Program is conducted and while he/she is traveling to and from such premises, regardless of the location or mode of transportation.

I understand that the Programs may use ethnic background and data supplied on the Flint School District meal application for their records, that my child’s teachers may share attendance and grade information, that Program employees, agents and volunteers may gather information about my child/children and that all this information may be shared with non-Program entities for evaluation purposes. Health information on file with the school may be released as needed in order to secure emergency medical treatment.
It is the goal of Flint Community Education Initiative, YouthQuest, Crim Fitness Foundation and their partners to provide both a physically and emotionally safe environment for all program participants. With this in mind, each Program participant is required to follow the Flint Community Schools’ Code for Student Conduct as distributed to all Flint Community School students as well as provided on the www.flintschools.org webpage and on file at each school in order to ensure that all Program participants strive to meet behavior expectations.
I will attend parent/family events and communicate with staff as necessary to address my child’s needs.
All out of school time programs are provided in partnership with The Flint Board of Education. The Flint Community Schools’ Code for Student Conduct (Code) has been prepared as a service to all students, parents, and faculty of the Flint Community Schools. The Flint Board of Education has authorized these policies and procedures to provide the standards and structure necessary to foster that safe educational environment in which students can learn as they mature mentally, physically, emotionally and socially in the Flint Community Schools. All policies, regulations, definitions, and procedures have been prepared to comply with the laws of the State of Michigan and of the United States to the best of our understanding, regarding the disciplining of general education/special education students. All parents, students, and faculty are expected to become familiar with the contents of this Code. I understand that if I do not follow the rules of conduct I may be asked to leave or not allowed back for Programs.
The Flint Community Education Initiative will use the information on this form the entirety of 2021-2022 School Year. If any information on this form changes, it is the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian to notify the Crim Fitness Foundation, Community Education Staff.
STUDENTS MUST BE PICKED UP ON TIME. FAILURE TO PICK UP YOUR CHILD ON TIME MAY RESULT IN YOUR CHILD BEING EXCLUDED FROM PROGRAMS.
