Please closely review the following Policies, which outline the Student & Parent Codes of Conduct, along with Acknowledgement of Contract Terms.
Centerville Destination Imagination is a 100% volunteer-led organization. In order to provide the best experience for the students, we all need to work cooperatively. Parent involvement is crucial & an important component of the team. In order to be an effective part of and/or support of a team, students & adults must understand, even if they don’t agree, that they need to abide by the following:
I UNDERSTAND THAT I WILL BE NEEDED & REQUIRED TO VOLUNTEER MY TIME, and that I may have to volunteer my time MORE THAN ONCE. Volunteers will be needed for Dress Rehearsal; Round Robin IC/Picture Day; BOTH REGIONAL & STATE TOURNAMENTS; and to participate on the Parent Support Group Committees.
In addition, the Team Manager may need adult assistance during meetings and may require a support rotation.
I agree to respect the Team Manager’s right to run the team as (s)he sees fit. However, I understand that I can talk to the Team Manager, the Building Coordinator, Building Principal, or District Coordinator about things I see that make me uncomfortable.
I understand that the Team Manager is a volunteer and has work, family and personal obligations. I will keep the lines of communication open and timely with the Team Manager, and understand that they are also trying to coordinate with up to six other families.
I agree to allow the team members to own every bit of the Challenge solution. I will avoid Interference by keeping my ideas, suggestions, and “hands” to myself. The team will figure it out by themselves, even though it may take longer, work less efficiently, or not be the “best way”. (This is a normal part of the learning process.)
I agree to support the Team Manager in any way that s(he) needs: supplying necessary forms/paperwork in a timely manner, providing snacks or supplies, becoming an extra set of hands/eyes at meetings, giving moral support, etc.
MEETING BEHAVIORS & ATTENDANCE
I agree that DI is a major time commitment and that my child needs to attend every meeting in order to be a full participant on the team and in solving the Challenge. Meetings will probably be scheduled once or twice a week with more meetings/rehearsals as the regional tournament gets closer. **The season runs September through March; if the team advances to State &/or Globals, the season will end at the end of May.**
I will ensure that my child is on time to scheduled meetings. If meetings are virtual, I will help arrange technical capabilities for my child to participate. If meetings are in person, I agree to arrange for transportation to and from meetings. I will ensure that my child comes to all meetings prepared to work.
I agree that my child is part of a team and needs to exhibit positive team behaviors that support the other members of the team and the Team Manager. The team needs to abide by the Team Manager’s definition of positive team behaviors.
I agree to know the date(s) and clear my child’s and my schedule for the Dress Rehearsal, the Region 12 Tournament and, if applicable, the Ohio Tournament and Global Finals.
I understand that there is a Registration Fee for participating in DI. Payment can be made with cash; check; &/or credit card via PayPal.
