Empower Generations learner Maker Space

Dear Empower Generations Families,

Starting this week, we will be asking all returning families* to complete your re-registration forms for the 2021-22 school year. This will require several steps, and we’ll be sending you timely information for each step of the process.

The “Why” of Re-Registration

One of the primary purposes of the re-registration process is to ensure your child’s safety. We’ll be collecting emergency contact info, including phone numbers and email addresses, as well as information about your learner’s particular health needs that we may need to be aware of. We will also request signatures for forms that must be updated yearly, such as permission for your learner to use technology and address verification.

This week in your email you will receive a link to re-register for the 2021-22 school year. If you have completed the Intent to Return and have committed to your spot for the 2021-22 school year, please view the video below, which demonstrates how to finish re-registration. We request that you complete this re-registration as soon as possible to assist our staff with this process.

Also in July, when the document becomes available, we will be asking all families to complete the Household Data Collection Form, which help us to provide lunches and receive funding for our school. Please be on the lookout for these coming in July.

Thank you for your prompt attention to our upcoming requests as we complete re-registration for our exciting school year of 2021-22!

If you need support, please email shantoria.goodman@ileadinnovationstudios.org and we are happy to assist you.

Thank you,

The Empower Generations Team

*If you are not returning for the 2021-22 school year, please disregard this message.
