Hello Families and Students. The school year is off to a fantastic start. We are already four weeks in! Over the last few weeks, you have seen stories from graduates, parents, and staff about the wonderful things that happen daily at our school. I wanted to share that we still have seats open for this school year. If you know a student who could benefit from the relationship focus environment we create here at Options, please let us know and encourage them to reach out to learn more. Each day they wait is a day they could already be getting an individualized education.
For our current students and families, I wanted to share information about our student referral program. With the addition of a new student referral program, both current and prospective students of Options Schools will have opportunities to be recognized for taking an active role in growing the impact of Options.
This program was created in order to acknowledge those students and families that continue to promote Options by spreading the word about how we serve students. Through this new program, students will be able to earn an assortment of items that include lunch account credit, Options gear and more.
How it works:
1.) Who can participate?
Any student who is currently enrolled at Options Charter Schools can participate in this program.
2.) How do we take part in the program?
In order to receive rewards, you must spread the word about Options Schools to your neighbors, friends, and co-workers. Tell them what you love about Options and encourage them to schedule a tour. For every student you refer to us that attends our school for at least three months, the referring student will receive a $10 lunch credit!
3.) How are the different recognition levels determined?
Each new student, along with the student who referred them, will also receive Options gear. Lunch credit will be capped at $50 for each student, even if having referred more than five students. The student with the most referrals on March 1 and October 1 will also receive an Options Prize Pack, which will include Options-branded gear and more. (Value of prize pack contents will be less than $50)
4.) When will lunch credit be applied to each student’s account?
At the beginning of each month, qualifying students will have credit added to their lunch account.
5.) How will Options know a student was referred?
The school has a question on our online application asking, “How did you hear about Options Charter Schools?” The applicant should note the first and last name of the student who referred them.
For additional information about the program, email Andrew Piper.
We are extremely happy to serve our families here at Options, but would love to expand our support to more students and families in our community.
