The program participant and Parent/Legal Guardian agree to the following terms:
In consideration of being accepted as a participant in the Lone Star Leadership Academy, the undersigned Student and undersigned Parent/ Legal Guardian each hereby release and hold harmless Education in Action and its employees and agents from any liability arising out of my participation in said program, and each further agrees to reimburse Education in Action or its employees and agents for any loss, damage, or costs they may incur during said program and that are caused by my participation. Education in Action shall not be liable or responsible for any injury, loss, damage, or delay resulting from any act or neglect of any person or company whose services are retained by Education in Action for the benefit of program participants, including but not limited to, accommodations, restaurants, or transportation companies. Furthermore, Education in Action cannot be held responsible for any act, error, or omission on the part of any program participant or participants.
I understand that the Lone Star Leadership Academy is a professional program and as such demands the highest standards of behavior. I will conduct myself in a manner that will contribute to a sense of community among all participants and foster an atmosphere of mutual respect. Any student possessing or using drugs or alcohol, violating curfew, leaving the activities of the program, or behaving in any manner inconsistent with Education in Action standards or local, state, or federal statutes will be immediately dismissed from the program. Education in Action follows a zero tolerance policy; there are no second chances. If a student is dismissed from the program for disciplinary reasons or upon advice of a medical doctor, the student’s Parent/Legal Guardian will assume all financial responsibility for returning the student home. No tuition refund will be made.
I agree my participation entitles me to the standard arrangements and activities offered and/or scheduled by Education in Action, including, but not limited to, housing, meals, charter bus transportation during the program, and educational materials, and that all special arrangements and/or requirements must be independently provided and/or that I must bear the cost of any and all special arrangements and/or requirements outside of the standard activities and arrangements offered by Education in Action.
For the health and safety of every participating student, Education in Action reserves the right during the entire program to conduct dormitory inspections to ensure student compliance with the stated rules and regulations. While student phone calls are not scheduled throughout the program, parent updates will be provided on Education in Action’s website during the program week.
