Cultural Collaborative Policies


Cancellation Policy and Procedure

All workshop registrants are subject to a five business day cancellation policy. If the individual fails to cancel prior to five business days from the start of the workshop, they will be billed a $100/day no-show fee. This fee covers the cost of materials, food and other administrative costs associated with the event. In the event of a multiple/day workshop, where the days are separated by weeks or months, each day in the session will be treated as a separate event in terms of the cancellation policy.

Substitute Teachers and WMEP Member Guests

A member guest is a participant who is not currently employed by a member district, but has written permission from a member district to take WMEP classes at no charge. Member guests may included substitute teachers if the member district is not hosting them (i.e. hosting means that the member district agrees to pay all costs associated with the substitutes attendance or lack thereof.) The policy for WMEP member guests is the following:

At least ten days prior to a selected course date, a member guest must submit a $100/day refundable check to:

c/o Liz Lansing
4825 Olson Memorial Highway
Suite 100
Golden Valley, MN 55422

The check will be returned upon workshop attendance. Failure to attend will cause the check to be cashed to cover Cultural Collaborative expenses, unless, the member guest has canceled at least five business days prior to the scheduled workshop date.

This policy will not apply for registrants who are hosted by a member district. This means the member district has agreed to pay any costs associated with the registrant, including an agreement to pay their “no show” fee.

Nonmember participants who are sponsored by outside districts, other institutions, or themselves will be billed the non-member rate.

All registrants will be subject to a five business day cancellation policy.
