Fees are generally between $13 and $25 per hour of meeting time, based on the number of weeks the class is offered, class length, the instructor’s fee, and BUSD’s facility charge. Fees are non-refundable. Some classes are more expensive because they are longer or have materials fees built in.
Each student is eligable for one scholarship per session, with a co-payment of $30 (or more if you are able). If you accept a scholarship, the PTA pays the full fee to the teacher for that spot in the class. For this reason, please be sure your student attends class meetings. If you student registers for more than one class, the scholarship will be applied to the LOWEST fee.
If your child has a second choice, indicate that when you register. For students enrolling in less than 3 classes, if the second choice is on a different day than the first class, put the second choice class in the second choice line on the other day, leaving the first choice for that day blank. (If you want two classes on different days, select each as the appropriate first choice).
How secure is the ase website? The website itself is built with standard internet technologies, and provides a typical security for class info and registrations. The main site does not use HTTPS for enhanced security. However, payment processing is done using a third party service called Stripe, which offers "industrial strength" security. All credit card info is processed ONLY by Stripe, and not stored or even sent to our servers. Stripe is PCI Level 1 certified, and trusted by hundreds of businesses, including Kickstarter, Twitter, TaskRabbit and FitBit. See Stripe.com for more information.
If your child is in LEARNS, PTA enrichment classes are different than those provided by LEARNS. There is no additional cost fo the LEARNS enrichment classes. Kindergarteners can take both a PTA and a LEARNS class on Monday and Fridays (PTA classes are 1:30 - 2:30, LEARNS classes are 2:30 - 3:30). For grades 1-5 the class times overlap, so you must choose one or the other on days where both are offered. Please call Kathleen Russell at (510) 883-6149 if you have questions about the LEARNS classes.
