                                      PERMISSION TO PARTICIPATE
I hereby give permission for my son/daughter to participate in the Job Shadow project. I accept full responsibility
for the cost of treatment for any injury that my child may suffer while taking part in the Job Shadow. We assume
all risks, hazards, and injuries incident to such participation and do hereby waive, release, absolve, and agree to
hold harmless the Learning/Work Site, Learning Site Supervisor, the Program Coordinator, the Ferndale School
District, School District personnel and School Board members from any claim arising out of an injury to my child
except where the injury is caused by the negligence of either party, school district or learning/worksite.

There are inherent risks in any work-based learning experience. Parents are strongly advised to discuss their
concerns about possible risks with their child and to ensure that the student has adequate accident insurance
coverage. Students must receive permission from their parent/guardian to shadow the potential host before
scheduling or participating in the Job Shadow.

I understand that there is no state industrial insurance coverage for Community and Work-Based Learning
Programs where no wages are involved. Our signatures below indicate we have read, understand and agree to
abide by the foregoing.

   Parent/Guardian Signature                       Print Name                                 Date

I understand that my son/daughter cannot participate in the Job Shadow project unless the School Accident
Insurance Coverage Plan covers him or our family furnishes proof of sufficient medical coverage; this waiver
indicating adequate coverage will suffice.

          Student Name                            Grade Level                              Birth Date

I have insurance coverage equivalent to or better than the School Accident Coverage Plan, which I will continue
to keep in force throughout my son/daughter’s Job Shadow and, therefore, I do not wish to enroll
                             in the School Accident Coverage Plan.

experiences for students. In order to participate, the student and parent must accept the following responsibilities:

 The undersigned parent(s)/guardian(s) hereby consent or agree that their child (student) is permitted to enroll
and participate in the Job Shadow project and hereby agree to the terms and conditions set forth in this Driving
  Authorization and Consent Form. Current automobile liability insurance will be in force at all times during
 program participation. Your insurance will be the primary coverage in the event of any liability arising out of
  this activity. It should be further understood that the district’s coverage may or may not respond, but, in any
event, only in excess of any valid collectible insurance; and the district’s insurance will not respond to damage
                                    to the vehicle itself under any circumstances.
