Enrollment: Each academic year, BLC offers many student scholarships for tutoring, academic programming or enrichment to students who qualify for Free or Reduced Lunches. Please contact us regarding availability of scholarships for this school year.

Lottery: BLC also offers 4-6 scholarships through a “Lottery” process to Free or Reduced students. These scholarships are provided after Thanksgiving Day. Parents of the students being granted a scholarship will be notify by  letter, email, phone or schools Parent Liaison.

Class Cancellation/Change Policy: We encourage your child to try any classes they find interesting within the first 2 weeks of classes. During the 2 weeks, you are able to change or cancel a class. Any changes or cancellations need to be in writing to BLC and you must inform appropriate people (ie. student’s teacher) of cancellation or change. After the second week, we will no longer accept class changes or cancellations. ‘Permanent Schedule Change Fee’ will be applied after the second week.

Enrichment Care Cancellation/Change Policy: Please note that we follow the registration form when billing. During the first 2 weeks of enrichment care, we will accept schedule changes in writing. After the second week, the ‘Permanent Schedule Change Fee’ will be applied. Additionally, all enrichment care changes or cancellations must be made at least a month in advance due to our billing system.

Behavior Incidents: If there are any serious incidents of behavioral issues with your child, we will contact you and fill out a Student Incident Report Form describing what happened.  If there are three serious behavior incidents that occur while your child is with us, the child will be out of the program.  This includes any violence, harassment (verbally or physically), bullying, or demonstrating a lack of respect for our staff or materials. BLC reserves the right to terminate a student’s enrollment in our program.

BLC, in its sole discretion, determines if it is unable to meet the needs of a student, or that it is not in the best interest of the Resource Center or other students enrolled to have a child continue in attendance.

BLC and its staff retain the sole right and responsibility to determine any disputed factual matters regarding termination of enrollment. 

Email Contacts for schedule changes: Who you should inform if you make any changes to your child’s schedule that are not indicated on the registration form.  We put their emails because all changes need to be done in writing.
