Parent/Guardian Commitment Form

Roles, Responsibilities and Commitments for Parents, Guardians and Families

I, (Parent/Guardian), understand that the Wise Readers to Leaders program uses models, curriculum, and training which seeks to ensure every child a successful passage to adulthood with the help of caring families and communities. I understand that a key goal of the Wise Readers to Leaders program is to involve parents in the life of the program as active participants in the learning experiences of their children.

I understand that all adults, including parents, guardians, and adult family members of children enrolled in the Wise Readers to Leaders program, are expected to be positive role models, to communicate the importance of academic achievement, and to contribute to the creation of a caring and nurturing learning environment in which every child is valued and seen as capable of achieving.

o I agree that during the time my child/children is/are enrolled in the Wise Readers to Leaders program, I will:

  • Volunteer in the program
  • Participate in weekly parent meetings
  • Do my part to help make the Wise Readers to Leaders program a caring and nurturing learning environment; and
  • Ensure that my child/children is/are in attendance on a daily basis.

Program Assessment Consent

I, (Parent/Guardian), give permission to Wise Readers to Leaders and its designees to collect and record data on my child/children. This data gathering may include, but is not restricted to, the following:

  • Assessments, surveys, and/or interviews about his/her/their knowledge, attitudes, skills, and behaviors regarding his/her/their academic development such as motivation to read; nonacademic development such as leadership and conflict resolution skills; and overall satisfaction with the Wise Readers to Leaders program.
  • School data, including academic assessment results and report card information collected as follows: either shortly before the program begins, during the program, or shortly after the program ends. 

I understand that the purposes of these surveys and interviews are to document the impact of the Wise Readers to Leaders program on its participants and to identify areas for improvement. I also understand that this information will remain private, and that only my child's/children's site director(s) and research assistants approved by the Wise Readers to Leaders program will be able to look at his/her/their responses.

I also understand that my child’s/children's responses will be automatically grouped together with the responses of all Wise Readers to Leaders sites for any public presentations of findings, and that my child/children will not be individually linked to his/her/their responses. In addition, I understand I can take back my permission at any time.


Media Release Form

I hereby authorize and irrevocably grant to the Wise Readers to Leaders and its affiliates, licenses, agents and assigns:

  1. the unrestricted right to use and publish any part of the information that I have given to Wise Readers to Leaders and the right to record both my child/children and me, including our name, voice, appearance, likeness and comments on film, audiotape, videotape, still photographs, print and any other media known or hereafter invented. I acknowledge that Wise Readers to Leaders shall own all right, title and interest in and to this media. I further agree that Wise Readers to Leaders may cause all or parts of this media to be used for any and all publications, exhibitions, public displays, editorials, advertising or other purposes. 
  2. the exclusive ownership of all artwork created by my child/children during his/her/their participation in the Wise Readers To Leaders Program.


I waive any inspection or approval of the media or any advertising or publicity in which my child's/children's or my name, voice, appearance, likeness, narrative, or comments might appear. I expressly release and agree to hold harmless Wise Readers To Leaders and its agents, employees, licenses and assigns from and against any and all claims including, but not limited to, invasion of privacy that I might ever have in any way relating to any of the aforementioned uses. 


Consent to Receive Counseling

Our program is very fortunate to have a counseling program available for enrolled students. We are happy to have counseling interns and trainees from The Maple Counseling Center available to work with our students. The interns and/or trainees will be meeting with students individually, in small group sessions, and/or in the classroom settings to assist children with learning how to improve social interactions, enhance conflict resolution skills and address issues of self-esteem. All interns and trainees are supervised by a licensed therapist, who will be providing regular oversight and training to insure a quality experience for the students.

Your child’s privacy is important. Therefore, we have implemented safeguards to ensure that it is protected. California law requires adherence to reasonable expectations of privacy in certain counseling situations. However, when there is a reasonable suspicion of child abuse, elder or dependent adult abuse, or when the client threatens violence to an identifiable victim, the privacy of the client can no longer be honored. Additionally, confidentiality and/or privacy may be broken if a client presents to be a danger to him/herself.

Finally, counseling services are being offered by our program with the understanding that the counselor and essential program personnel will be sharing client information when appropriate. A copy of our Privacy Policy will be issued or is available upon request.  Please be advised that your child’s therapist is a pre-licensed counselor who will be consulting regularly with his/her licensed supervisor.

If you have any questions regarding privacy, confidentiality, or the nature of the counseling services consented to in this agreement, please feel free to contact us.

Sincerely,

The Wise Readers to Leaders Staff

By signing below, I hereby attest and affirm that I give express informed consent for the above-named child (“Client”) to participate in, undergo, or to receive counseling services administered by therapist(s) of The Maple Counseling Center.  I reserve the right to revoke consent at any time by written notification to the Wise Readers to Leaders program. 

By signing below, I hereby attest and affirm that I am the Parent/Legal Guardian of the above-named child (“Client”) and have full legal right to grant consent to the provision of counseling services. Moreover, to the best of my knowledge, such consent does not require mutual parental consent under state law, federal law, or a court-ordered child custody decree.
