                                   Contract for Transportation
                                  September 1 2012-June 30, 2013

The following constitutes an agreement between The Clearwater School and the Guarantor
(Self/Parent/Guardian) as follows:

       The Clearwater School will provide daily (Monday through Friday) transportation between
       Seattle and The Clearwater School, 1510 196th St SE, Bothell, WA 98012, from September
       10, 2011, through June 14, 2012, using the route and schedule outlined in section 3.
       The Guarantor will pay--in one payment or in monthly installments--the fee for this
       transportation program as outlined below (See sections 1, 2, 3 and 4).

1.     Annual Fee*
            Code Description                    Fee
            FT     (4-5 days/week)              $700/year
            PT     (3 days/week)                $600/year
            PR     Per ride fee**               $3/ride or $5/round trip

       *Annual fees are calculated based on the total number of school days, and may be divided into
       10 equal monthly payments. Hence, the monthly rate is the same regardless of the number of
       school days in a month. No refunds will be given for brief, temporary lack of bus service—see
       Attachment B for examples.

       **Per ride fee also requires sufficient notice before using the bus. Drop-in riders are
       accommodated only if space is available. Riders without a part-time or full-time contract are
       not guaranteed space on the bus.

2.     Deposits and Payment Schedule

Contracts are binding from month to month and require one month’s notice to terminate.

       Option 1
       Payment made in monthly installments:
             A non-refundable deposit equivalent to one month’s fee is due by June 30, 2012,
             to reserve a seat on the bus for the 2012-2013 school year. All subsequent monthly
             payments are due the first day of the month of service, beginning September 1, 2012.
             The last payment will be due May 1, 2013. The deposit will be applied to the June
             payment.. At any time during the school year, the outstanding balance of the annual fee
             may be paid in full.

       Option 2
       Payment made in full:
             A non-refundable deposit equivalent to one month’s fee is due by June 30, 2012,
             The reminder of the entire annual fee may be paid by September 1, 2011. Payment in
             full eases the school’s bookkeeping burden and is encouraged. It also eliminates the
             possibility of being charged a late fee. Should a pre-paid bus rider terminate the
             contract mid-year, the school will give a pro-rated refund for unused bus service.
