Drop & Refund Policy

Drop Deadline: 3 p.m., CST, Wednesday, July 20, 2020

By registering for EAST Seminar, you are confirming that you intend to participate at the levels for which you registered. In turn, the EAST Initiative incurs certain non-refundable costs and expenses on your behalf. For this reason, registered participants who drop their EAST Seminar registration(s) after 3 p.m., CST, Wednesday, July 20, 2020, or does not attend, will still be required to pay all applicable registration fee(s).

Not Able to Attend?

Letter Deadline: 3 p.m., CST, Friday, June 26, 2020

According to the EAST Statement of Assurances signed by your school administrator and the EAST Initiative, facilitators are required to actively and fully participate in professional development activities (including, but not limited to Phase Training, EAST Conference, and EAST Seminar) on a continuing basis as a part of normal duties. If due to extenuating circumstances, a facilitator is unable to attend EAST Seminar, his/her school administrator may submit a letter to the EAST Initiative, detailing those extenuating circumstances. While this does not place your program in immediate jeopardy, if combined with additional compliance insufficiencies, a collaborative plan between EAST Initiative and the school for corrective action may become necessary.

Should extenuating circumstances arise, please ask your administrator to submit a letter to rinda@EASTstaff.org and CC events@EASTstaff.org for official record-keeping purposes by 3 p.m., CST June 26, 2020.
