Tuition assistance awards are considered and determined once a student is accepted and enrolled or re-enrolled in Kaua’i Pacific School. Families must pay the enrollment fee even if applying for tuition assistance. If tuition assistance is not approved and you choose not to enroll your child, your enrollment fee will be refunded. If a student or family is on tuition assistance, no other discounts (such as sibling or early payment) apply. Applicants will be notified by mail no later than July 1, 2010. Current families are given first consideration for tuition assistance but all families are encouraged to apply. Families who do not file taxes are not eligible for tuition assistance.
ANNUAL GIVING CAMPAIGN: Every family must contribute to the Annual Giving Campaign. Our current budget calls for, on average, $1,000 of Annual Giving per student. Yearly gifts, which are tax deductible, impact all the activities and programs of the school, strengthening its financial foundation. Our community goal is participation from 100% of our families.
PARENT PARTICIPATION: Every Kaua’i Pacific family is required to participate in a minimum of 10 hours of school related activities. Volunteer forms are sent out at the beginning of the year and opportunities are published regularly in the WAYS YOU CAN HELP section of our newsletter. A fee of $15 for each volunteer hour not completed will be assessed at the end of the school year.
SCHOOL TIMES: The school day currently begins at 8:15 a.m. and ends at 2:45 p.m. daily, with the exception of Wednesdays, when early dismissal is at 2:00 p.m.
SCHOOL HANDBOOK: The Handbook is published and distributed to all families in August, along with a student/parent directory. We encourage all families to carefully read and discuss the contents of the Handbook, including dress code, school rules and discipline policy with your child/young adult. This Handbook is also available in the main office and on the school portal (RENWEB) for your perusal at any time.
WORK TRADES: At times, we are able to offer a work trade for a service that the school requires on an ongoing basis. Areas for work trade include landscaping, janitorial work, office support for the principal and accounting. If you are interested in a work trade, please contact the principal directly.
