If you arrive more than 15 minutes after class begins, you must escort your child to the homeroom. Your child will receive a pink attendance slip that will be given to the instructor. Late arrivals will not be allowed into the classroom without an attendance slip. Accurate attendance is important for the safety of our students.

Discipline Policy

Appropriate and respectful behaviors are expected while attending CFK. Students that do not uphold these expectations will be escorted to the CFK Homeroom. It will be the student’s responsibility to contact their adult caregiver to explain why they were removed from class. They will be allowed to return to class when they are able to agree to improved behavior. Continued disruptions may result in the student’s permanent dismissal from College for Kids with no refund given. Illinois Central College has a Zero Tolerance policy in that no weapons (i.e. knives, guns of any kind, etc.) are allowed on campus. Any student choosing not to abide by the rules and regulations of Illinois Central College will not be allowed to return to College for Kids. These policies help ensure the safety of our students and staff.

Schedule Changes, Refunds and Cancellations

If you need to change your class schedule after your registration is confirmed, a $10.00 processing fee will be charged. No class schedule changes may be made after the registration deadline. College for Kids reserves the right to cancel a class due to low enrollment. Students enrolled in a class that is cancelled will be offered an alternative class or the option of a full refund.
