I (or my designee) agree to operate a Scholé Group (SG) according to the terms, philosophy, core curriculum sequence, and pedagogy specified in the
Scholé Groups Start-up Guide, including but not limited to the following elements:
I commit to operating a co-op comprised of three or more families.
I commit to implementing a classical curriculum as described in the Scholé Groups Start-up Guide.
I commit to implementing classical pedagogical principles as described in the Scholé Groups Start-up Guide, such as
Festina Lente, Multum non Multa, Virtue Education, and Curiosity and Wonder. I commit to pursuing a pedagogy of "scholé" throughout the co-op to the best of my ability.
I understand that our group will include the word “Scholé” in the group name or subtitle.
I understand that as a SG, we will be entitled to all benefits, services, and resources provided to SGs as specified in the Scholé Groups Start-up Guide. I agree not to share or distribute these benefits, services, and resources outside of my official SG roster, and to ensure that the members of my SG agree to the same.
I agree to notify the Scholé Groups Network leadership if the group no longer can or wishes to keep the terms of the this agreement, at which time the group will no longer receive the benefits, services, resources or support of the Scholé Groups Network, and at which time the group will remove the name “Scholé” from the group name.
Each director is the operator of his/her own Scholé Group and may operate the group as his/her own business. Scholé Groups may also chose to operate as friends, sharing expenses and without forming a registered business, but will still be registered with the Scholé Groups Network as an official SG and with a registered director (even if a volunteer). SG makes no requirements on what curricula (published materials) are used. Directors may generate revenue for compensating themselves and teachers (and other service providers) by charging tuition of SG participating families. Directors are free to charge whatever tuition they deem wise. Compensation for teachers at a given SG is set by the director in negotiation with a given teacher. Apart from the terms of the this agreement and guidelines of the Scholé Groups Start-up Guide, there are no restrictions placed on Scholé Group directors or teachers.
I have read and agree to the terms above.
