of invoice). Late payments are $25.00 and will be assessed after the start of the session. Please be
prepared to make payment at the START of the session to avoid fee. If payment cannot be
rendered at the time of session, a late fee will automatically be assessed.
Terms of the Scholarship: Mobile Classroom Solutions is a provider for the Reading
Scholarship and the Family Empowerment Scholarship. Families posessing a scholarship under
these programs may be eligible for direct payment to your account with MCS. Please see
https://www.stepupforstudents.org for details. Have questions? We can help you complete the
scholarship!
Use of the Step Up For Students Program is a privilege that allows families to pay for services at
minimal out of pocket expenses to the families. Families are expected to monitor and manage
their scholarship accounts to ensure that the proper funding is available. In the event that
scholarship funds have been exhausted, you are responsible for the balance before services are
rendered. In the event that funds are denied, you will be assessed late fees.
Upon receipt of an invoice, parents are expected to approve or deny payment within three
calendar days of request. This ensures a least timely processing time, as parent approval is only
the first step of the multi-step verification of the reimbursement process. Timely approval of
payment is essential to continued use of the scholarship privilege. Late approvals by parents are
subject to late fees of $25 and up, which could result in services being placed on hold. Violation
of the terms of the scholarship could result in dismissal from our programs. Please see the

handbook: https://www.stepupforstudents.org/for-schools-providers/how-the-income-based-
scholarship-works/fes-eo-school-handbook/.

Terminating Services:
Contracts agreements are necessary 3 times per year; first, for summer, next, for fall, and again,
Services can be canceled at any time with a 30 day notice, but contract agreements apply to
attendance policies. Clients are expected to commit to a weekly time or provide notice in
advance so that sessions can be properly rescheduled, For each contract agreement period, you
will need to sign up and choose your scheduled time. If you decide to end services at the end of a
contract period, you do not need to provide notice.
In the event that you would like to terminate services during a contract period, please provide us
with a 30-day notice of your intention to do so. All new clients are given a 10-day period to
determine if they agree to the terms of the contract. In addition, services are provided on a
monthly basis. You are responsible for the full month’s payment. However, clients that
terminate during a contract period forfeit the right to partake in future services and are
responsible for the full month’s payment. We encourage all clients to complete their agreements
in order to get the best results for the students, and to satisfy all obligations with MCS
CANCELLATION/ATTENDANCE
If the client decides to cancel the session, MCS must be provided with proper advance notice, in
writing (email, text, letter) as defined below:
A. Excused Absence: Canceling a session due to family or medical circumstances, as
documented, and the other party is provided with a 24-hour notice. You are still responsible
for the amount due on your invoice unless approved in advance. Each family is permitted up
to two (2) absences per contract period. You are responsible for payment of sessions
outside your two excused permitted absences in order to remain in good standing. If
you choose to reschedule after 3 times, you be assessed a convenience fee of $20.00.
B. Emergency absence: Constitutes canceling a session due to a personal or family emergency,
within 2 hours of appointment, limited to one session per contract period. You will be
waived session fees for one emergency or excused session. Examples of circumstances that
may require such an absence include: hospitalization, death in the family, life-threatening
illness or injury, or recovery from an accident or surgery. More than 1 emergency
cancellation by the client per contract period will result in a cancellation charge of
$30.00. More than three emergency cancellations will result in the termination of services.

C. No Call/ Unexcused absence: More than one (1) emergency session (2 hour-notice), or
failure to call or show at the start of a scheduled session without written notice. This does not
allow for the tutor to make arrangements and lesson planning has already taken place.
Therefore, please understand that you are still required to pay for no-call, no-show. More
than one no-call, no-show will result in dismissal from the program.
D. Tardiness: We will do our best to accommodate late arrivals, but in the event that we are
unable to, we will try to provide clients with the maximum possible time. You are still
responsible for the entire session if you are late to class.
E. Holidays/Summer: Mobile Classroom Solutions, Inc. will be closed during Polk County
School holidays. We will remain open during the summer, on Saturdays, and during Polk
County Schools Teacher work days/ Staff Development days. Monday or Friday sessions
should be rescheduled (and not cancelled) on weeks that school is closed due to a school
holiday.
F. Best Practices: Parents are expected to bring their children to tutoring regularly and follow
the suggested plan, as outlined on the first page of this contract. Parents are expected to
ensure students attend tutoring sessions. Without regular attendance, students are not likely
to meet expected goals and gains. In addition, it is not recommended that struggling readers
take long breaks from instruction. Shorter, more frequent breaks are ideal. Summer
instruction can be done at home, by a parent, by using our websites, by purchasing a summer
work packet to maintain and review skills. With advance notice, sessions can be rescheduled.
G. COVID 19/ Quarantine: If an event has occurred that requires a student to quarantine,
sessions are available on Google Meet or Zoom in order to provide continued instruction, to
prevent regression or missing assignments, as long as health permits. Please refer to the
Mobile Classroom Solutions, Inc. Coronavirus Procedures in a separate document.
H. REFUNDS: Refunds will not be issued. Great efforts will be made to reschedule, but clients
are still responsible for all cancelled sessions, with respect to the attendance agreement. In
addition, if you are unable to reschedule within the week, you will still be billed for all future
sessions. Options for rescheduling include attending on the weekend, attending virtually, or
attending two sessions in one week.
