Text Message Agreement
I give permission to Central Dakota Children's Choir to send SMS messages via Remind to the number provided. I understand that normal text messaging rates may apply to messages I receive from Remind.
Attendance & Tuition Policies
Membership in CDCC is an honor. Singers are expected to participate for the entire season. Each member plays an important part in the success and growth of the choir; therefore, consistent attendance is expected.
Students are allowed no more than 3 unexcused absences. Students exceeding this limit will be in jeopardy of losing their position in choir. An example of an excused absence would be for illness, death of a family member, and unavoidable schedule conflicts that have been communicated to your choir director and received prior approval.
If a student’s tuition has not been paid by the due date, that student will not be allowed to attend rehearsal until such time as tuition is paid. Each missed rehearsal will be considered unexcused. After three unexcused absences, the student’s position will not be held. Any tuition not paid by July 30, 2021 will be assessed a $30 late fee. If you foresee difficulty meeting this payment schedule, please contact our office immediately. We will make every effort to work with you, but a payment plan must be established prior to July 30, 2021. Please do not wait until after July 30th to address payment concerns.
CDCC expects participants to commit to the entire season and CDCC tuition is non-refundable. However, we understand extenuating circumstances may prohibit you from continued participation. Extenuating circumstances include a move out of the area, a death in the family and other life-altering situations. In these situations we will consider a refund on a case-by-case basis. Unexpected scheduling conflicts do not constitute an extenuating circumstance.
For more information about tuition please see Tuition Payment Information.
Choir Commitment & Tuition Agreement
* I understand that my child, as a member of CDCC, needs to make singing in the choir a high priority and be a member of choir for the entire season.

* I understand that my child may have a one day a year school concert commitment for the season.
* I agree to pay full tuition or set-up an online automatic credit card withdrawal payment plan by July 30, 2021. I also understand that a late fee of $30 will be applied if a tuition payment is not paid by July 30, 2021.
* I understand tuition is non-refundable.
* I have read and understand the attendance policy and tuition policy.
I give permission for my child’s name, likeness and images of my child, captured on behalf of Central Dakota Children's Choir through video, photo and digital camera to be used for Central Dakota Children’s Choir publications and media. I understand these may be used in print publications, online publications, presentations, websites and social media. I also understand that no royalty, fee or other compensation shall be come payable to me by reason of such use. I hereby release and discharge Central Dakota Children's Choir from any and all claims and demands arising out of or in connection with Central Dakota Children’s Choir’s exercise of the rights granted herein.
Waiver and Release of Claims
I recognize and acknowledge that there are certain risks of illness/injury to participate in this program, and I agree to assume the full risk of any such injuries, damages, or loss regardless of severity which I or my child/ward may sustain as a result of participating in any activities connected or associated with this activity. I waive and relinquish all claims that I, my insurer, or my child/ward may have against the Central Dakota Children’s Choir and its officers, agents, servants, and employees from any and all claims from injuries, damages, or loss which I or my child/ward may have or which may accrue to me or my child/ward on account of my participation or the participation of my child/ward in this program.
CDCC's informal uniform is a choir T-shirt and blue jeans. CDCC will provide shirts for the students. If singers are in the same choir as last year, they should not need to get a new shirt unless they have grown a great deal. If they are moving from one choir to the next, we will provide a new T-shirt.
When selecting a T-shirt size for your child, try to think large rather than small. Once they have received a T-shirt, it is not possible to exchange for a larger size. We have what we have. If we need to order additional T-shirts, there is a set-up charge that will need to be paid in addition to the cost of the T-shirt.
Parent Volunteer Form
As a nonprofit organization, Central Dakota Children's Choir depends heavily on volunteers. We also understand that your time is valuable and your commitments are many. Therefore, we do not expect you to volunteer for everything; however, we do ask that as a parent of a CDCC singer, you commit to volunteer at least twice throughout the season. Included in your child's tuition is a $60 volunteer fee. At the end of the season, if you have completed your volunteer requirement, we will refund this fee.
Our most effective way of finding volunteers is through email requests, so please keep your eye out for emails from the office requesting volunteers.
