Question #10 - Why did my child receive their third choice club and not their first or second choice?
Answer - Each club only has a certain amount of students they can take on. Most of the time the more popular clubs fill up quicker. For example, Cooking can only accommodate 18 students due to their budget and the size of the kitchen.
Question #11 - How is it decided who gets what club?
Answer - Selection is based on the student’s first, second, and third choice of clubs. a A random draw process will be used for all clubs that exceed requests for the number of spots available. For example, if a club can only take 10 students but 17 students select that club as their first choice, the 10 slots will be filled by a random draw from the 17 students. Once the registration forms are given to students, they will need to return their completed EDGE forms within three days, along with the registration fee, if applicable, in order to participate in the initial selection process. Students who turn in their forms after the three day deadline will be selected by a first-come-first-serve process from the remaining club spots available.
Question #12 - My child doesn't like his/her club now and wants to switch. Is this possible?
Answer - Sometimes this is possible but generally after a semester has begun most clubs are full so the chances of him/her switching to another club are not very good.
