Soar Detroit Student Waiver

Terms of Service

By completing this application, I understand and agree to the following:

  • My child must have a computer or tablet with webcam, microphone, and internet service to participate in the remote tutoring program.

  • Remote tutoring will take place via Zoom. While Soar Detroit will exercise due diligence by implementing available meeting security measures, the data security protocols and standards of the communication platform are out of the control of Soar Detroit. Therefore, it is up to me to exercise due diligence and caution when allowing my child to interact with this platform.

  • Online tutoring sessions will be recorded (video and audio) for security and/or training purposes.

  • Soar Detroit will not tolerate disrespectful or inappropriate behavior online or in-person, including posts, chat content, gestures and speech. Soar Detroit reserves the right to discontinue my child’s participation in this program immediately should anything deemed inappropriate occur.

  • During remote tutoring, I will create a quiet learning environment for my child as free from distractions as possible. My child will be seated at a table/desk in a chair that allows them to sit up straight and focus on the session.

  • Children will wear appropriate clothing during tutoring sessions.

  • My child will refrain from eating or snacking during the tutoring sessions.

  • I have reviewed and accept the Soar Detroit Online Student Privacy Policy.

  • My student is expected to attend 2 sessions per week at their scheduled time. I understand that repeated absences or tardiness will be grounds for release from the program. ​

  • Neither completion of this application nor completion of the assessment sessions guarantee program placement. Final selection process will be determined based on the number of applicants, space available, and academic need. Soar Detroit reserves the right to accept or deny any applicant entrance into the program. 

  • I may withdraw my child at any time by notifying a Soar Detroit staff member, by emailing, or by calling 313.398.2327.


Waiver: Communication Permissions​

I authorize Soar Detroit to text, call, and email me as needed. Names and contact information will not be sold. Standard messaging rates may apply.


Waiver: Photo/Video Consent and Release  
I grant Soar Detroit the right to video record and store my child’s tutoring session using the software included in the videoconferencing platform. I acknowledge and agree that he/she may be photographed, videotaped, or recorded during other Soar Detroit activities. These recordings and photographs may be used for the publication and dissemination of program training materials, publicity, and marketing. Without expectation of compensation or other remuneration, now or in the future, I hereby grant to Soar Detroit, their staff, volunteers, agents, successors, licensees and assigns, the irrevocable right and license to store and use my child’s photograph, video image, and voice, to edit or crop published images, to use or authorize the use of such photographs, audio- or video-recordings, or any portion thereof, to use a portion of their name, likeness, biographical or other information concerning them in connection therewith, for the purposes stated above in any media deemed appropriate by the organization. I agree to hold Soar Detroit harmless against any liability, loss, or damage resulting from the use of their image, and hereby release and discharge this organization from any and all claims whatsoever in connection with such use of photographs, audio- or video-recordings. This consent is given in perpetuity and does not require prior approval by me.

Waiver: Release of Liability and Acknowledgment of Risk

I agree to abide by the rules and regulations of Soar Detroit. I also understand that participation in any of their programs can have associated risks. I hereby release, forever discharge and agree to hold harmless Soar Detroit, Grace Community Church, and any other associated organizations from any and all liability, claims, or demands for personal injury, sickness, causes of action, as well as property damage and expenses, of any nature whatsoever which may be incurred as a result of participating in this program. I will not hold Soar Detroit, Grace Community Church, or any of its volunteers or employees responsible for any hazard or injury that may occur while my child is receiving services on or in their facilities or at other off-site locations.
