WCAS financial plan is provided to offset the cost of what would normally be provided to a student who is in a regular school program. Under that general guideline, WCAS will cover the costs of learning materials necessary for the implementation of the student-learning plan.
While costs for instruction in athletic programs (e.g. gymnastics) may be covered, season or day passes for skiing, etc. will not be covered. Stationary supplies will not be covered. Non-consumable materials (hard cover books, teachers’ manuals, etc) can be used on a loan basis from WCAS for a refundable fee.
Materials loaned to the student are subject to a refundable fee. When students receive books there will be an invoice specifying the amount of the fee for those books. This invoice is payable upon receipt of the materials. When the student has finished the course the books may be returned, and the fees paid will be reimbursed. Failure to return the books, or returning books in an unuseable condition, will result in the fees being used to replace those resources.
Online courses: will be deducted from grant allocation. If grant allocation is already used up, then a fee must be paid in advance of use.
WCAS will deal with third parties to provide educational services, materials, educational resources, or supplies to students and will not pay funds directly to students or the parents of students without prior approval and supporting documentation.
Unused funds will not be carried over into the next academic year, nor can they be used to cover the purchase of resources intended for use in the following year.
Funds will be prorated based on percentage of enrolment.
*If students leave the program during the school year for any reason, the cost of the program will be prorated and that amount will be charged to the student and/or parent, and any borrowed resources or equipment must be purchased or returned.
