Woodland Fine Arts Academy enforces a behavior policy in an effort to maintain a high quality of classroom management, instructing and consistency instruction. This policy will help students to understand the teacher's expectations and provide a communication resource for parents to be aware and informed of any behavioral needs that may arise. Every class within the academy will review these expectations the first week of classes If a student is disrupting, misbehaving or being disrespectful they will receive a verbal warning. If the behavior continues during that same class, they will be asked to sit out for a short period of time or miss a fun activity planned during the class time (up to the teacher's discretion). This is in an effort to provide the student with a tangible consequence for their behavior if the verbal warning was not effective. If the behavior persists the student will be informed that their parent will be notified. Within the week, WFA will email a note to the parent with an explanation of what happened in class. If this occurs on 3 occasions within a semester, the parent will be contacted and we will require the student to un-enroll from the class for the remainder of the semester and the student will not be able to participate in the class performance. This is in the best interest of the child, the class, and the teacher. We want to reassure you that behavior expectations will be reasonable and age appropriate and that this will only be used when necessary to maintain quality instruction for the entire class. We thank you in advance for your understanding and for partnering with us to teach our students appropriate behavior in a WFA class. This will provide all children with the best learning environment possible.
Class fees are nonrefundable and are due regardless of attendance. Regular class attendance is vital to your child’s growth and crucial to the success of the class as a whole. If your child needs to be absent for any reason, we ask you to let your child’s teacher know in advance so that he/she can plan accordingly. If absences become excessive, WFA Staff will determine if the student can continue to participate in the class. If class attendance has suffered, WFA Staff will use discretion to determine if it is the best interest of the child and the class to perform. Dress rehearsal is required. No exceptions. If a student misses a dress rehearsal they will be unable to participate in the performance. This is in the best interest of all involved in the performance.

Access Fob Fee:
For the safety and security of our campus, all WFA families are required to have an access key fob to enter the building. The fob fee is $15 for the first fob and $10 for each additional fob and is due at the time of registration. The fob will be programed under your name and will be your responsibility to keep on hand when coming and going from Woodland’s campus. If your access fob is lost or stolen, it must be reported to us immediately so that we can disable the fob. Any lost or stolen fobs will result in a $25 replacement fee. If your family un-enrolls from WFA classes, the fob must be returned or a $25 charge will be issued to deactivate the fob under your name. This upgraded security feature was put into place for the safety of our children, staff, volunteers, and families that are on campus. We sincerely appreciate your support and cooperation in this effort towards added security and peace of mind.
