Vendor Instructor / Service Policy
- A purchase order (PO) must be received by the vendor prior to the student’s service start date. CWCS does not guarantee payment on any services rendered by the vendor without having an authorized PO in hand.
- Only specific services, number of lessons or sessions, or specific items listed in the description on the PO will be paid for by CWCS. Services are to be scheduled on school days Monday – Friday. No weekend services can be scheduled. Only make-ups for absences can be completed on non-school days at the discretion of the vendor.
- CWCS does not pay for any separate charges like deposits, enrollment, registration, invoice or any other type of administration fee. It is the parent’s responsibility for payment if these types of fees are required for the student to receive service. If product materials are required for a service then the vendor must request and receive a separate product material purchase order. Do not invoice for product materials using a service PO number.
- No payment for services rendered will be made by CWCS for any student who is not listed on the school’s PO.
- No payment will be made by CWCS for any student to attend services whose instructor is a relative of the enrolled student.
- CWCS POs are valid only for the service’s specific dates or month stated in the description area of the PO. A PO is NOT valid to apply to services for any other month that is not stated on the purchase order.
- It is the Vendor’s responsibility to contact the school’s Business Services Department at email@example.com if there is any erroneous description, information, or amount on the PO, and request a revised PO prior to invoicing on the services.
- The instructor or CWCS may cancel the PO at any time for any reason. Either party may terminate the business relationship at any time without prejudice or penalty. CWCS will not honor or be responsible for any signed agreements made solely between the parent and the vendor.
- Instructors may not use social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram to communicate with the CWCS students. Texting should be limited to class or schedule information only.
