V. Arbitration of Disputes
Under no circumstances will transcripts be issued to any other school if tuition is not paid as referenced in Section I.
Any disputes arising out of or relating to this Contract, performance under this contract, or the breach thereof, including all disputes of any nature relating to my child's enrollment and attendance at this school, and including but not limited to the threshold questions of arbitrability and the formation of this arbitration agreement, shall be finally resolved by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its rules, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language in the city of Mobile, Alabama, applying the laws of the State of Alabama. There shall be one arbitrator who shall be selected in accordance with the procedures of the American Arbitration Association. Each party shall pay one half of the cost of the arbitrator. In no event shall punitive damages be awardable by the arbitrator in favor of either party, unless specifically authorized by the applicable statute. This provision is continuing in nature and shall remain in force throughout the entire period of my child's enrollment at this school.
BY MY SIGNATURE BELOW, I AGREE TO SEND ANY AND ALL DISPUTES RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, TO BINDING ARBITRATION. I ALSO HEREBY WAIVE MY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL IF A DISPUTE ARISES IN ANY WAY RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT.
