Student Account Policy
Choir Parent Booster Group
Student Account Policies – Effective 5/1/2012
The purpose of the student account program is to provide show choir students an opportunity to deposit and accumulate personal funds and fundraiser earnings in order to fulfill obligations of payments for expenses assumed by participation in GISH Show Choir program
Expenses for which funds may be deposited may include all costume pieces and accessories; team wear (mandatory or optional); additional travel and/or lodging expenses associated with competitions or show choir trips; any and all other expenses as determined by the show choir program.
Student account funds may NOT be used for optional costs such as pride buttons, decals, team photos, videos, shoes, undergarments, spankies, stockings/socks.
- Student profits from fundraising are deposited into the account
- Students may deposit personal funds into their account at any time.
- Donations made to the student in lieu of fundraising sales or income are deposited in that student’s account
- Funds are withdrawn automatically by the student account manager to cover show choir expenses for each student. Fundraising deposits will be used first, then personal funds.
Each student is required to pay the established fee in full by the due date. The fee is determined by the show choir director and may vary by group/year.
The fee is considered a ‘flat fee’ and no amounts are refunded or carried over at the end of the year.
Exception: Any funds over and above the flat fee, personal or from fundraising, will be carried over to the next year.
Change in membership
Students who end their membership in show choir before costume pieces and/or accessories are purchased for them, may request a refund of personal funds deposited into their account. Requests must be made in writing within 30 days of ending their membership. Refunds will be sent via a check from the GI Education Foundation.
Students who end their membership in show choir after costume pieces and/or accessories are purchased for them will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the show choir parent boosters.
Graduating Seniors with unused personal funds – over the flat fee amount – that are $25 or more will be refunded. Any remaining funds in the student account that are from donations and/or fundraisers will be moved to the general show choir booster account.
Fundraising activities done in the community are expected by the public to be used for show choir expenses. For this reason, requests for cash back of fundraising profits from student accounts will not be granted.
