You must meet specified criteria. To see if you qualify, contact Workforce Investment Act consultant at (330) 296-2842.

6151 - BAD CHECKS Adopted 5/19/94
When the District receives a check from a student or parent that, when deposited, is returned marked "insufficient funds", the Treasurer shall provide an opportunity for the payor to make proper payment or to arrange for a satisfactory payment schedule. If payment is not received within thirty (30) days, the payment schedule is not adhered to, or the monies do not appear to be collectable, the Board of Education authorizes the Treasurer to remove the fee or charge from the District's Accounts Receivable to take appropriate action against the student and/or the parents.
Some courses may require some expenses outside of the course tuition. Personal items such as uniforms, required tools, safety items, and materials must be paid by the individual student. In many cases, without these supplies, students will be unable to participate in class. Class fees, determined and explained by the instructor, are also the student's obligation. All fees and fines must be paid prior to receiving a Career Passport (for career development programs), grades, and completion certificates. Transcripts will be withheld until all financial obligations have been met.
Attendance at a trammg program is a reasonable predictor of attendance at work. Instructors monitor attendance carefully. They take attendance when their classes start and they record times when students leave early and arrive late.
REFUND PROCESS FOR WITHDRAWAL
Refunds will only be issued to the person who paid for the course regardless if that person is the student. Refunds will be made by check from the Maplewood Treasurer's office if student paid tuition by cash or check. Credit to the charge card will be issued if student paid tuition by Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. Please allow 2-4 weeks for processing paperwork and/ or mailing checks.
Please note, books and other supplies are not refundable.
