Acknowledgement of Responsibility

The Dexter Co-op is run entirely by its members – the parents. We believe this is what makes our school the best early educational experience for your child – and what makes it special. An efficient and fun school requires the cooperation and involvement of all its members in many different capacities. In an effort to avoid confusion and surprises we have compiled the following list of responsibilities and ask that you read them carefully and return this signed form with your enrollment paperwork.

PARENT ASSIST DAYS: Parents assist in the classroom on a rotating basis as scheduled by your session representative. Generally, you can expect to assist approximately two to three times per month depending on the size of your child’s class. Scheduling requests, babysitting arrangements, etc. will be considered when the schedules are being developed. All assist and non-assist parents must also work and assist in planning one class party per child enrolled.

FIELD TRIPS: Parents are expected to attend field trips and provide transportation for their child.

JOBS: Each parent will be assigned a job to be done throughout the school year. Every attempt will be made to make job assignments based on the preferences specified on the application, but may not be possible in all cases.

GENERAL MEETINGS: Members must attend all general membership meetings as many important topics are covered. Specific dates will be given to you with your orientation materials. If a member cannot attend, it is the member's responsibility to obtain the information covered at these meetings.

HANDBOOK: Dexter Cooperative Nursery School handbook can be found online. Members need to review the material in the handbook, which includes school policies, board member job descriptions, assisting parent responsibilities, etc.

TUITION: All students must pay a non-refundable $50 registration fee at the time of application and a nonrefundable $100 Enrollment fee which reserves a space in the program. Tuition is due on the 1st of each month. Payments not received by the 7th of the month will be assessed a $10.00 late fee.
