Youth Enrichment Handbook for Parents 2016 - 2017

Suspension Policy All suspensions result in a loss of enrollment and/or participation in any Youth Enrichment programs. 16 • First Suspension: When possible and reasonable, we use steps one through four to address the inappropriate behavior. Should the behavior continue, the participant will be suspended, termed according to the number of occurrences and the severity of the behavior displayed. A parent conference will be required prior to the participant’s return to the program. • Second Suspension: Should inappropriate behavior continue after the first suspension, the participant will be suspended for an extended period and will not be able to register for any other programs offered by the City of Henderson Public Works, Parks and Recreation Department. A second parent conference will be required prior to the participant’s return to the program. • Third Suspension: A third suspension will likely include an extended period beyond 30 days with the potential to include multiple years, depending on the offense. The suspension will apply to all City of Henderson Public Works, Parks and Recreation Department programs. Note: Bullying; harassing; threatening other participants or staff; intimidating; uncontrollable, physical or violent behavior can be considered grounds for immediate suspension. If the inappropriate behavior results in an immediate suspension, the length of suspension will be at the department’s discretion, commensurate to the offense, and could include up to a permanent suspension. No refunds will be granted for suspended program days; no exceptions. Custodial Issues The obligation of staff is to ensure a safe and fun environment for your child. We do not have the ability to resolve custody issues or to be mediators. We understand that children may come from a situation where parents are separated, divorced or currently seeking a divorce. These situations result in various custodial arrangements. The City of Henderson is not able to interpret or make rules relating to custody agreements. This is the responsibility of the custodial parties and the city will neither negotiate nor mediate custody arrangements. The city will not be responsible for enforcing time constraints relating to visitation. If custodial issues are in dispute, causing any uncertainty as to which parent is entitled to pick up the child, the department asks that you refrain from registering the child until such issues are resolved. If such issues arise once a child has been registered in a program, we expect them to be resolved immediately. If the issue is not resolved immediately, the department will consider whether the child may continue to participate in the program.
