Email your students as soon as you are sent their registration and a couple of days before class to welcome them/remind them and give any instructions or materials to bring/supply fee. You will be provided with a sample welcome email. We also recommend another "best practice" of emailing students AFTER your class to keep interest high for future classes you may offer. Keep up with your students' emails!

Publicize your class through all your available social media accounts and invite others. Please promote MWCA as much as possible by liking and sharing our posts.
Cancellation Policy: MWCA does NOT cancel classes. If you get even just one sign-up, we highly recommend that you hold your class (you may want to open your class up to walk-in's if possible). We've learned through the years that our classes tend to build slowly, and you will gain a following if your class is engaging and of a good quality. You will not earn a following if you cancel classes.
Rescheduling classes: If inclement weather strikes (MWCA will not be open if Walton County Schools are closed) or if you have an unforeseen Illness or family emergency, you are responsible for calling your students to inform them that your class is re-scheduled/extended an extra week. Always keep your class roster with you so you can contact your students in an event of an emergency.
Note: a student survey will be emailed to your students. Poor ratings from your students will result in MWCA not approving your future class proposals.
This agreement does not constitute a contract and can be canceled at any time by either party.
