American Cooperative School Mission Statement
The mission of the American Cooperative School is to provide students a prescribed, high quality American education from a Christian perspective in the English language
CORE VALUES 1. The principal task of the school is to teach academics from a Christian worldview so that the students are encouraged to develop a love for God, a love for learning, and the ability to function in the modern world in which we live. Education is to be formal and to meet the highest possible standards of excellence, using all God-given resources available. 2. Everything connected with the school will be done so as to give honor and glory to the One Triune God who offers redemption to all through His Son Jesus Christ. All full-time teachers will be professing Christians who are confident of their faith, who freely and sensitively integrate it into the discussion of any subject matter, and who model a Christ-changed life through their relations with each other and all students. It is recognized that each student has a right to make his or her own religious choices; therefore no student will be coerced into embracing a Christian worldview. 3. In order for the child to make successful transition into academics in the United States, the American style of education will be adhered to, using qualified teachers, teaching tools, and teaching methods, covering a basic American Curriculum. 4. Every child entering the school will be expected to abide by rules and regulations representing basic Christian morals. 5. The Board of Directors will work to fulfill the stated purpose of the school. All policies will be decided by Board consensus.

Introduction
The American Cooperative School (ACS) is fully accredited with SACS, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and as such offers an American education taught in English to grades Pre Kindergarten through Twelve. The multinational student body is approximately 40% American, with the rest being from around the world, children of diplomats, businessmen, and other international families whose work brings them to Suriname. ACS is also affiliated with NICS, the Network of International Christians Schools. As a Christian school we maintaining a Christ-centered academic philosophy and a Christian worldview as the basis for our teaching. Christian standards of behavior are taught and are expected of all students and the teachers. The School is managed and maintained by a local Board of Directors. It is affiliated with the Network of International Christian Schools with headquarters in Southaven Mississippi, which maintains an educational ministry to international communities around the world. This organization provides assistance where needed, and helps to recruit and evaluate potential teachers. Most teachers come on two or three-year contracts. Teachers are also provided by various mission agencies.

School Year and Day
For the 2005 – 2006 school year school begins on Tuesday September 6th and ends on Thursday June 15, 2005. The school day begins at 7:30 a.m. and ends at 1:30 p.m. There are two 20-minute breaks. The school calendar is printed at the back of this handbook.

Application Procedures
Applications for enrollment are accepted at any time during the year. In April, all applications are processed according to established priorities. Students who are reenrolling are given first priority. Others are considered according to priority and space available. Parents of applicants must: 1. Complete an application/enrollment form. 2. Pay a $60.00 non–refundable application fee. 3. Provide legal documentation of age. 4. Provide transcripts and records (translated into English) from the last school attended. 5. Bring your child(ren) for testing if arranged. Parents of enrollees must: 1. Sign permission forms. 2. Complete Emergency forms. 3. Sign Tuition Agreement Form.

4

4. Provide proof of adequate medical insurance for their children. 5. Pay Capitalization fee of $600.00 per family.

Acceptance Policies
Clientele ACS serves students who will benefit from as well as contribute to the overall well being of the school. The student body includes children of missionaries, diplomats, international businessmen, representatives of other international and local organizations who desire an American style education for their children. English Requirement ACS courses are taught in English; the school should not be seen as a place to learn English for eventual expatriation. Students applying for acceptance at ACS must demonstrate a certain level of proficiency in English. ACS understands that some students, whose parents fit the above categories for qualification, may not yet be fluent in English. In these cases the school accepts a limited number of students whose English is not yet adequate. (See: English Proficiency Policy, and Grading and Special Students). Ages Generally children applying for Kindergarten must be five years of age by August 1 of the year they enter school. All new enrollees must submit a birth certificate or passport confirming birth date. Placement Placement of children will be determined by age and by performance on standardized achievement tests.

English Proficiency Policy
The purpose of ACS is to provide a high quality educational program in English. It is not to teach English as a foreign language. ACS expects that students will already speak English when they enroll. The school realizes that there are special circumstances that can be considered on an individual basis. In order to accommodate those whose English is not yet up to standard level, the school has instituted the following policy: 1. ACS assumes that, given a high percentage of fluent English speakers in a classroom, struggling speakers will improve, and the quality of English will not be hampered. ACS will consider accepting a certain percentage of non-fluent speakers in each classroom.

5

2. The levels of English proficiency are determined by interviews and tests. We use a series of oral and written tests which are geared to the age of the child. 3. ACS defines proficiency levels as: 1 - native English speaker 2 - non native but fluent in English 3 - understands instructions, can follow class procedures and discussions and independently do most of the class work 4 - beginner in English

4. Non–fluent English students will be accepted as Special Students. This means that they will be graded on their own progress, and not on a scale with the other students. This allows the child to work along with the class as much as he is able, but does not require a lot of extra time from the teacher. A Special Student receives a transcript saying “John Smith” has completed one year in ACS in the grade 3 classroom. He has concentrated especially on learning English.” 5. When the child is able to work at grade level, he is evaluated with the rest of the class and receives a normal report card and transcript. We have found that it usually takes one year for a level 4 to move to level 3 after the third grade. 6. Children will be placed as near as possible to their age mates. They will not be placed more than one grade below their normal class or grade level. 7. We feel that it is harmful to forbid the use of mother tongues, students who forget and speak a language other than English, will not be reprimanded. Staff will, however, remind students to speak only English in the classrooms, on the playground and during breaks. The school asks parents to kindly encourage their children to use only English at school - even if it is very difficult to do so. The reason for this is to provide total immersion in English for those who are still learning the language. 8. Non-fluent English speakers at level 3 and 4 are required to be tutored privately after school. The arrangement for tutors is the responsibility of the family. 9. The guidelines for English Proficiency in the classrooms are Grades K – 4 - no more than 30% Level 3, no more than one Level 4 per classroom Grades 5 – 12 - no more than 30% Level 3, no Level 4 children accepted

Tuition Rates
Tuition for K and pre-K is $3,500.00, and $6000.00 USD per child per year for grades one through twelve. There is a one time non refundable $60.00 USD application per child and a one time non refundable Capitalization fee per family in the amount of $600.00 USD. Tuition payments may be made in cash, USD, Euro, cheque, or direct transfer to the school’s account.

Dollar cheques payable to: Transfer to:

American Cooperative School American Cooperative School c/o ECCU P.O. Box 1239 BREA CA 92822-1239

(Account number for transfer is available on request from the school office.) NOTE: We have found that some cheques or wire transfers written in dollars from some foreign banks (including Suriname’s) incur a collection charge, which may be as high as $100. In this case we must pass this charge on to you. This would include Suriname dollar cheques that we must deposit in our stateside account. At the beginning of the school year each parent must complete a Tuition Agreement Form. This outlines who will make the tuition payment and on what schedule it will be paid. Tuition may be paid by the year, the semester, or the quarter. Under the quarter plan, one quarter of the tuition must be paid at the beginning of the school year and the subsequent quarterly payments at the end of each of the first three quarters in the school calendar. We prefer tuition to be paid at the beginning of each semester. Financial obligations to ACS are the responsibility of the parents. If your business or employer pays your student’s tuition it must be paid on the agreed schedule. Quarterly report cards and/or transcripts will not be given to students whose tuition for the following quarter is not paid.

Tuition For Students Enrolled For Partial Year
Tuition is calculated on a quarterly basis. Partial year students must pay all the tuition for any quarters in which they are enrolled, including partial quarters. Quarterly tuition is not reimbursed. This helps to cover the cost of consumable workbooks, materials and supplies. Students who withdraw for more than a whole quarter during the year but intend to return later are required to pay for the time missed in order to reserve a place for when they return. Tuition will not be refunded for students who withdraw during the school year except for those whose work necessitates moving out of Suriname. Refunds will be based on quarterly payments only.

Security
ACS is a secure environment. We have a campus which is totally enclosed with an 8 foot fence and guards on duty 24 hours a day. All visitors must report to the office upon arrival at the school. The school gates remain closed at all times except for student intake between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. each morning and for student dismissal between 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. each afternoon. If you arrive at any other time you must notify the guard on duty at the entrance gate then park on the street and enter through the pedestrian gate near the office.

7

In order to ensure the safety of the students, they are not permitted to leave the campus during the school day unless they are under direct adult supervision. It is important that they bring a nutritional snack with them rather than expecting that they can walk to one of the local markets during breaks. No students are permitted to leave the school yard without the written permission of their parents.

Transportation
Transportation to and from school is the responsibility of the parents. Transportation of students to special activities during school hours will be arranged by the school.

School Dress Standard
The dress requirements are designed to establish a “school distinctive”, contrasted to home or play, and to ensure modesty and appropriate attire for students in a K though 12 setting. The School Board has instituted the following expectations for all students: 1. It is expected that the following attire will be worn at school and at all school related events. Failure to comply will result in the student being dismissed from class or the school event until suitable attire is obtained. 2. Polo shirts (button type, knit, with collar and sleeves) in any solid color. Shirts must be loose fitting, and of appropriate size for the student to prevent the midriff from showing. If a student is cold, he/she may wear a sweater or jacket, other clothing over the polo shirt is not permitted. 3. Safari-type or walking shorts (not skin-hugging), long pants, skirts or split skirts in any solid color. Jeans are permitted if neat, not torn, and appropriately sized. Leggings, “bicycle-type” shorts or mini-skirts are not permitted as normal school attire. For physical education bike shorts are permissible as long as a pair of gym shorts is worn over them. Irrespective of a student’s age, shorts length must be below mid-thigh, measuring the inseams to middle of knee-cap. Skirts must be no shorter than the top of the knee. Pants, shorts and skirts must be worn on the waist. For safety reasons, students must wear shoes on the playground at all times – please do not bring any type of footwear that does not remain secure on the foot (strap across the back) – no “flip-flops” or bare feet.

Chapel Service
Chapel time once a week is an integral part of the program at ACS. Chapel is a time of praise and worship together with a short devotional presented by a staff member or a guest speaker. High School Chapel is held first thing every Wednesday morning and the Elementary Chapel is held the first thing every Thursday morning. Parents are invited to join as well. Student attendance is mandatory. As a part of the school program all students are expected to be respectful and attentive. It is not a place for completgeion of last minute homework or for visiting with friends. Regular classroom deportment is expected.

General Information
Parents are expected to send a snack of fruit or a sandwich for their children to eat during the breaks. The school does not provide these. During the first or second week of school, you will receive the following information which we encourage you to add to this Handbook: 1. A list of school staff and telephone numbers.

9

2. Your child’s daily schedule. 4. A list of School Board members and their phone numbers. Ongoing parent information, newsletters, etc. will be sent home via e-mail. Families who do not have e-mail will receive the information with their youngest enrolled child. If you prefer that it be sent home with another child in the family, please call the office to inform us.

School Supplies and Special Items
ACS provides basic school supplies to its students. These include textbooks, workbooks, paper, and pencils among other things. We occasionally have incidental items available for purchase. These include items imprinted with the school name and logo.

Attendance
Confirmation of Enrollment We require all students who wish to remain enrolled for the coming school year to confirm their intentions within the months of March and April. To do this a tuition deposit is required. If ACS does notreceive your tuition deposit, the school will assume that you do not intend to re-enroll your children and you will lose your priority status. Enrollment is on a first come first served basis. Late Returns ACS realizes that the schedules of families within our school community are at times unusual and do not coincide well with the school schedule. In the event that your child cannot return by opening day please inform the school of the expected date of arrival. If your child misses too much work as a result of a late return, the school may require that the parent enlist the help of a private tutor to help with catch-up work. The school appreciates your efforts to match your schedules with the school schedule as much as possible. Prolonged Absences If, for any reason, you anticipate a prolonged unexcused absence from school (more than 3 days), the absence needs to be pre-arranged with the principal at least two weeks in advance. The principal will arrange a schedule of make–up work together with the teacher. In the case of a prolonged unexcused absence which has not been prearranged, there will be a $20 fee per day per student payable to ACS. We work within the following policy: Excused absence: illness, family emergency, or death in the family. Unexcused absence: all other reasons, including trips and vacations.

10

1. In an unexcused absence – the student must make up his work at the discretion of the teacher. 2. In an excused (emergency) absence – student must make up his work before the end of the quarter, at the discretion of the teacher. If any absence causes a child to miss more than eight consecutive days in a quarter, he may be graded as a Special Student for that quarter, and an explanation of his grades would accompany his transcript. (See page 12: “Special Students”) ACS wishes to maintain a high standard of education. For that reason consistent attendance is important. The school appreciates your cooperation.

Withdrawal From ACS
Parents must complete a “Withdrawal Form” in the office when they withdraw their children from ACS. This establishes forwarding information for school records, etc. All fees, fines and tuition must be paid before any records or report cards will be released.

Grading and Special Students
Grading ACS operates on a semester system, with the first semester beginning in September, and the second semester beginning in mid January. Report cards are issued quarterly, with two 9 - week quarters per semester. A semester grade is averaged from the two quarter grades.
Grading Scale for Grades 1 - 12 A+ A AB+ B BC+ C CD+ D DF 98% - 100% 95% - 97% 92% - 94% 89% - 91% 86% - 88% 83% - 85% 80% - 82% 77% - 79% 74% - 76% 71% - 73% 68% - 70% 65% – 67% 64 & lower

NOTE: Final report cards and transcripts will not be released until all school bills and fines have been paid and all school property such as library books, textbooks, etc. is returned to the school.

11

Special Students The school recognizes that some students cannot be graded on the same scale as the regular students. These students are most often those learning English (level 4 and some level 3). However, ACS occasionally has special students who are handicapped by learning disabilities, or temporary learning difficulties (especially in the primary grades). We consider these students as Special Students and give them grades reflecting their degree of effort and cooperation, as well as their progress in relation to their own level, not that of their peers. Grades for Special Students are: E – Excellent S – Satisfactory U – Unsatisfactory A note will be included with the report card explaining the grades. As soon as the child is ready, he/she is given the normal grades within the A – F range. Behavior problems do not qualify a student for Special Student status, nor does overall poor work. Special Student status is normally allowed only to those whose difficulties are: 1) temporary, 2) definable, and 3) isolatable. The Special Student status may also include children who have missed an extended period of school due to illness or travel. A student requesting special status due to illness must bring a statement from his/her doctor. In order for a student to qualify for Special Student status on the basis of family travel, parents must bring a written statement from their supervisor that the trip is necessary to or advised by their organization and cannot reasonably be rescheduled for regular vacation time. Grading for this type of Special Student status will be the same as above.(E, S, U) Each instance of Special Student status is granted by the teacher in consultation with school administration. In the case of prolonged absence, a teacher may recommend summer tutoring as a requirement for promotion to the next grade.

Absences, Tardies, and Other Irregularities:
For reasons of safety and security, we have instituted the following policies: 1. If your child is absent from school, please call the office before 8:30 a.m. to confirm his/her absence. 2. A child who arrives late must first come to the office and will be admitted to class with a late slip. If a child is late three times in one week, a note will be sent to the parents.

12

3. If you must pick up your child during school hours, please come to the office. A secretary will get your child from the classroom. 4. If you must deliver something (snack, books, etc.) to your child at school, bring it to the office. The secretary will take it to the classroom. 5. We request that if both parents will be out of Suriname at the same time, you leave a note at the office explaining where your child(ren) will be staying, who is responsible for them, and when you plan to return. Please include phone numbers and addresses.

Discipline Philosophy
Since parents entrust their children to ACS, the school becomes an extension of the home. All parents do not have the same discipline standards; therefore the school must establish a standard that is readily identifiable by the students. The school accepts that discipline is for the correction of the child and that the motivation for discipline must be love for the child. Since our teachers are professional educators, the majority of the disciplining will be done in the classroom. Other teachers may deem it necessary to discipline on the playground or in non–classroom activities and students are expected to follow directions from all staff members, not just their homeroom teacher. At times the relationship between a student and the teacher may deteriorate to the point where third-party intervention is required. The third party will be the principal. If a parent desires further explanation about an incident, the first avenue is to make an appointment with the teacher. If this does not bring about resolution then the principal should be informed. Parents who have questions or concerns are always encouraged to voice them to the appropriate authority. Each classroom teacher will determine the rules and regulations for his/her own classroom. Two points of discipline are worth mentioning as absolutes. We would appreciate it that you take the time to discuss these with your children. 1) ACS, as an international school, has students from many backgrounds and cultures, therefore, the school will not tolerate remarks or comments which ridicule a particular race, belief, creed or custom. 2) We as guests in this country should act accordingly. Negative comments about Suriname, its government, and its people will not be tolerated at ACS.

Example of Disciplinary Procedure
1) The first step of disciplinary action will be normally carried out by the homeroom teacher. 2) If respect for the homeroom teacher and the other students becomes a problem, the parents and the principal will be notified. A case conference may be called involving the homeroom teacher, the parents and the principal.

13

3) If the solution worked out in the case conference is not effective, the child will be suspended for an effective length of time. 4) Parents’ cooperation is essential in preparing the for child’s successful return to the school. 5) A written record of the actions taken will be used to insure that all stakeholders are aware of the discipline procedures. 6) Should these measures prove to be ineffective, the school administration reserves the right to recommend to the School Board that the child be removed from ACS. The final decision rests with the board. In the event of dismissal for discipline reasons tuition will not be refunded. 7) If a child is removed from the school, the parents may apply for re-admission for the following school year. The school administrator will assess the situation and inform the parents of the decision.

Traffic
In order to insure the safety of our students please use the following procedures for dropping off and picking up your children before and after school: 1. As you drive through the parking lot, pick up your child near the sidewalk not at the gate. 2. If you wish to park your car, do so outside the fence and walk through the gate so you can escort your child to your car. 3. Do not cut across the parking lot. You may walk along the sidewalk to the corners of the building and then walk straight out to the gate. 4. When unloading or loading students please allow them to cross in front of your vehicle so that you can ensure their safety. 5. Students who ride their bikes to school are to walk their bikes to the front of the school and out the far (exit) gate. 6. The school gates will only be open between 6:45 and 7:45 each morning and between 1:00 and 2:00 each afternoon. If you arrive at any other time you must park on the street and enter through the pedestrian gate in front of the office.

Emergency Procedures
In order to be prepared for a possible crisis situation, the school has instituted the following crisis procedures: 1. If in the night or early morning you hear riots or shooting in your neighborhood, use your own discretion about sending your children to school. If the school is closed for such reasons, you will receive a phone call from school personnel. 2. Should a crisis situation develop while the children are at school, a. We will not allow children to leave the school alone, even if they live nearby. Children must be picked up by an authorized adult.

14

If for some reason you cannot get to the school to pick up your children, they will go to their emergency home. c. Should some children be left at the school, they will go home with one of the teachers. The principal will know where your children are. 3. If at any time you feel that your children may be in danger for some reason political, international crisis, etc. - you may request that the school verify their transportation from school. In that case, the children may leave only with an authorized adult, and a teacher will personally see them to the car. Each family in the school must choose an “emergency home” for their children. This may be the house of another school family, or of a relative. It should be someone living relatively close to the school (preferably between Gemenelandsweg and Copenamestraat. This is especially important for children who live a long way from the school. It is also necessary for others in case parents are away from home. On the school Emergency Form which you complete upon registration, you are asked to tell us how your child will normally go home from school (bicycle, walking, parent pick–up, driver, etc.). We also need to know the name(s) of your regular driver(s) as well as us whose house will be your children’s “emergency home”. There is additional space on the form to list the names of others who may be authorized to pick up your child. This may be a servant, a relative, or a different driver. Please inform the school office when any of this information changes.

b

Activities
ACS offers various activities and programs throughout the school year. If you do not want your child to participate in these as they are offered, you may discuss this with the school administration at any time. A child excused from a given activity will be involved in an alternate activity. It is not to be deemed as an excuse to stay at home.

Library Policy
ACS attempts to provide a good library service for the students. Guidelines for use of the library are as follows: 1. Students can only sign out books on their Libraay day when the librarian is present. 2. Kindergarten and grade one students may take out two books at a time. All other students may take out three books at a time. 3. Current magazines and reference materials are for use in the Library only and cannot be signed out. 4. The library is available for research with teacher supervision. 5. A fine of 25¢ SRD per day, per book is charged for overdue books and materials. 6. Lost books that can only be replaced in the US must be paid for in US dollars. 7. School records and transcripts will not be released until library books are returned and fines are paid

15

Computer Room
The ACS computer laboratory is equipped with recent equipment including a scanner, and a CD burner. All computers are networked and are served by a wireless connection with Telesur. Students and parents must complete a Technology Use Agreement before they can use the equipment. Students are not permitted to be in the computer lab unattended. Students must obtain teacher permission to use the printer.

Room Parents
Elementary classes have one or two parents who help the teacher with fieldtrips, put on small class parties for special occasions or other activities. You are invited to volunteer for this position, or your child’s teacher may recruit you. Parents often wish to bring snacks to a class to celebrate their child’s birthday. Arrangements for such mini-parties must be made in advance with the classroom teacher seeking permission and cautions regarding such things as food allergies and cultural expectations.

Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
If sufficient interest is shown by parents, a PTA may be organized. The purpose of this association would be to support and promote the school through special activities, projects and fundraising.

Use of ACS Facilities
School Children The school grounds are available for use by the school family after school and on weekends. School children may check out sports equipment from the guards and must return all equipment to the guards for storage once they have finished with it. Use of computers and other classroom equipment after school is by permission from teachers only. The permitting teacher will supervise the students and when the supervising teacher leaves the school, the student is required to leave as well. Teachers may not give permission for students to use other teacher’s classrooms or equipment therein, unless the other teacher has agreed. Exception: teacher may allow students to enter other classrooms to retrieve textbooks and home work. Students on the premises after school hours must be under the supersion of a responsible adult. Groups using the school facililty must check-in and out with the guard on duty. Premises should always be left neat and clean. Students must be respectful to the guards and other school personnel at all times. The guard on duty will allow students access to the schoolbuilding after school hours. Students may not use the laboratories or library after school hours Students are not permitted to enter the classrooms without teacher supervision.

16

Other Groups A limited number of organized groups may sign up to use ACS facilities for regular (weekly, monthly) activities, or special events. Groups sponsored by school families may arrange to use school sports equipment. Others must bring their own. Non-school-related groups wishing to use the ACS facilities may rent available space by submitting a written request to the school office, and completing an application form. Such permission must be renewed at the beginning of each semester. Special groups must yield their time to school–sponsored activities when necessary. However, we try to avoid conflicts. Any group which does not take proper care of the ACS property or facilty, or which continually annoys or disturbs the neighbours surrounding the school will be denied further use of the facilty and school grounds.

Communication with the ACS Board of Directors
Normally questions and concerns of parents are dealt with by the classroom teacher and then by the school administrator. However, there may be times when questions and concerns arise that need to be addressed by the ACS Board of Directors. In such situations a parent should write a letter to the Chairman of the ACS Board of Directors stating the questions or concerns. The letter should be given to the school administrator at least 10 days prior to a scheduled board meeting. The administrator will submit your letter to the Chairman of the Board. The ACS Board of Directors meets bi-monthly. The list of officers of the Board for 2005 – 2006 follows: Chairman: Vice chairman: Treasurer: Member at Large: Ted Jantz Michelet Fontaine Phil Davis Chantall Nassy - 434 342 - 550 380 - 430 620 - 499 818
