For members teaching classes at WSCEC:  
In case you have questions about these, I thought I'd add this so you always have access. The class description and class budget can be filled out online. You will need to sign in then click on the underlined words here to access them - class description        class budget

At co-op 4 parents are encouraged to submit class SUGGESTIONS; ideas for classes they are thinking of teaching or would like to see taught.

At co-ops 5 and 6 we are submitting Class Descriptions.  Parents submit the actual class(es) they will be teaching the following semester.  Parents may teach 2 classes if they like, instead of assisting in a class. Some things to keep in mind when thinking about this; first a catchy and exciting synopsis of your class; SELL it.  Why would students (or their parents) WANT (them) to take this class.  Also think about your purpose or goal; what will the students have learned in taking your class.

Class Budgets-it is important to know that as of the Spring 2014 semester we will no longer reimburse for a class if a class budget is not submitted for it.  Class Budgets are due with class selections by the second Friday after Family Night of the semester before the class is to run.
These guidelines apply to enrichment classes only where the teacher is buying the materials. 
Some guidelines to think about:
                    food and art classes can cost between $8.00 to $12.00 per student
                    science classes can cost between $10.00 to $20.00 per student
   (this would also apply to a specialized class where a specific book or materials must be purchased)
                    other classes would submit a $0 to $5.00 budget
Even if your class has no budget and you don't expect to be submitting any receipts, please go ahead and submit a 0 budget so we are not wondering what the deal is.  There is an area on there to let us know what types of items you might need from the resource closet.  Checking this off will help us have enough for you.

Be aware that we make Black and White copies at co-op, NO COLOR, and we cannot reimburse for them.  ALSO, there is a well stocked resource closet in our storage area.  PLEASE check there before purchasing items. Not only do we want to purchase something we already have, we also do not want to store more items than necessary.  We need to be careful of space and of course, of God's provision for us.

Before Back to Co-op Day of the upcoming semester, you will need to submit a BULP.

BULP stands for Back Up Lesson Plan.  We NEED to have one of these on file just in case you need to miss a co-op.  Since we only have 7 classes, to waste one by not being prepared is not wise.
Plan something relating to your class that is easy for ANYONE to implement and that will take up most or all of the 55 minute class time.  You can always plan for this to be your co-op 7 plan if it doesn't get used.  EVERY class must have a BULP. We sometimes get very short notice of the need to use it and we do not want to be needing to come up with something on the fly. That is not fair to your substitute or your students.

For your convenience, the paper forms located below can be viewed or downloaded.  There is not a form for BULPs.
