General information and survey regarding tuition fees during the closure ordered by the Health Ministry.
We would like to share with you some new rather general information regarding our approach towards tuition fees while the school is required to stay closed due to the Covid-19 epidemic. Our aim since the very beginning has been, on the one hand, to focus primarily on children and figure out some effective ways we could continue delivering learning programmes to them. At the same time, however, we understand that for many of you this situation is causing troubles too and paying full tuition when the school is closed would be unreasonable to ask for. Finally, it is very important for us to continue supporting our teachers making sure that the impact on their salaries will be minimised. In this unprecedented situation all parties (school, teachers, parents and children) are losing and our response has been governed by one simple principle which is that all parties should share the costs of this situation.
I can inform you that we will be putting together a package for parents in order to compensate for the days the school has been closed. At this stage we are unable to state how much we can refund parents exactly. So far we still have not received any additional funding from the government. Though if our application is successful and the school receives extra funding to deal with this situation, we will put together a more concrete proposal for all parents. In this proposal we plan to state the financial amount per day we will be reimbursing and further eligibility criteria to qualify for such reimbursement.
Since we have always valued your opinion and at the end of the day we are making decisions about your private money I would like to hear from more of you to evaluate what is the majority view. I know already that we will not be able to satisfy all views. However, even if the package may not address individual needs, we see parents as partners and we have always considered the views of parents in all important decisions we make.
