K – 9 LEARNING SUPPORT FUNDS (LSF)
What is an LSF – Learning Support Funding form?
An LSF (Learning Support Funding) form is a working document set up for students upon registration to determine how their funding will be allocated. The LSF form must be completed and approved by your OLT in order to receive funding support. Those students registering in September will have access to $600 in funding for resources and lessons as well as up to a maximum of $400 for internet reimbursement. Pre-loaded EBUS Visas are issued to families for each student who has registered in September. Lessons and Vendor forms are available upon request for those organizations/clubs that do not accept Visa.
***Cross Enrolled students are not eligible for Learning Support Funding***
EBUS Academy has traditionally provided funding to parents to cover resources that were normally given to students in a brick and board school. Things have changed radically over the past 20 years and items originally covered may no longer be the norm.
Our funding policies at EBUS have also evolved during this period. Some changes are Ministry driven while others are EBUS implemented. Ministry Policy
EBUS strives to apply policies fairly to all students.
Full time EBUS Academy students in grades K-9 whose registration is complete prior to the last school day of September have access to $600 in Learning Support Funding and up to $400 in Internet Reimbursement to help support their current student learning plan.
All purchases must be pre-approved by a course teacher and support the student’s current learning plan. For example, we will not pay for music lessons for a student who is not enrolled in a Music or Fine Arts course with EBUS.
Although teachers approve all student purchases, all purchases must still comply with our EBUS Financial Purchasing Guidelines.
Please remember we are a public school and as such, must separate church and state. Parents are welcome to purchase school supplies from Christian vendors as long as the purchases are secular in content.
