Compensate or Reimburse
We as BIS parents do not accept the school's solution of substituting classroom learning with e-learning during the government enforced break during the Covid-19 outbreak.
At the moment, the parents are being asked to take on more responsibilities while incurring extra expenses and time to make sure our children’s education is not disrupted by the crisis. Therefore, we are asking the school for support by taking the actions as listed below.
- Cease or make modifications to the e-learning process immediately so that children don't have to sit in front of a computer for hours every day, especially for young primary children as it is not healthy to them. This is a decision the school made unilaterally without consulting with us, we wish to be more involved in the decisions regarding our children's learning going forward.
- Take actions to make sure our children receive the same 180 days of quality learning that we have invested heavily for. We have paid premium tuition fees to make sure our children receive the best education available; it would be a shame for the school to let the children fall behind in their education without making the proper adjustments.
- If you are unwilling to put the children's education first and choose to protect your business bottom line and the summer travel plans instead then we’d like to be reimbursed for the days that we paid for but did not receive your service.
- We would like to schedule a school level meeting as soon as possible to discuss the school's concerns and difficulties, as well as to express our own grievances and requests. We believe an open dialogue is the best course of action regarding this matter.
BIS has always promoted exemplary values and that was why we have chosen you for the uttermost important task of educating our children. We hope in times like this your values would be the shining beacon for the community and our children, not empty marketing adverts.
