Sub: Fee Reduction on E- Learning

Dear Sir / Madam

With reference to the the existing situation, we, parents of LEAMS Education Schools, appreciate the Institutions’ continuous support and back the decision of the school’s closure for the safety of its students. However, we feel that it is unjustified that LEAMS is demanding a full fee payment of 'E Learning Program'.

It is important to address that the online learning platform is not a complete alternate, but rather a supplement to the Term Education. Parents have to put in more than 5-7 hours a day, assisting children to complete the daily assigned lessons, provide resources, stationary, technology, not to mention the added mental strain and pressure of working from home simultaneously.

In addition to this, the children are not attending school in full, neither using the premises, utilities, facilities nor all extra circular activities which are now closed until further notice thus reducing the school’s costs.

Moreover, Keeping the current situation in mind, the government has clearly created policies in place which gives the employers a choice to reduce the salaries appropriately. While in no way we are supporting paycuts for teachers, the financial implications of this decision must not be passed on to the parents.

Over the course of last few weeks, we have seen businesses and companies suffer, families across the city taking the brunt of this situation- most employees are being laid off, forced to take unpaid leave or are facing pay cuts. Most Businesses are struggling and commercial activity has now come to a complete halt. These are severely difficult times for all of us.

Considering these prevailing conditions, many schools in are supporting the parents and have announced reductions in fees.

As prominent education providers in the UAE, we expect LEAMS to lead the way by example and therefore, we collectively appeal to LEAMS Education for a minimum 50% Fees Reduction for the 'E-Learning Program' and also waive off the Annual Fees being imposed on us. For those parents that have already paid, we request their payments to be adjusted against the upcoming payments.

These are difficult times for all of us, and we hope LEAMS will play its part.

Your Co-operation shall be highly appreciated,

Parents of LEAMS Education Schools
