We would like to inform you about the reimbursement scheme of Leergeld Parkstad applicable for the school year 2022/2023.
To reduce opportunity inequality among children, as of August 1, 2021, the law on voluntary parental contribution has changed. Children may no longer be excluded from activities, such as field trips, excursions and camps, if parents do not pay the voluntary parental contribution.
Last school year we still used a transitional arrangement in which we reimbursed the voluntary parental contribution to the parents' associations. With effect from the new school year we also fully apply the guidelines of the government and reimbursement to parents associations / schools is no longer possible. For all schools both primary and secondary schools, that parental contribution is voluntary. Parents who cannot pay the contribution are not required to do so.
Requests for: parental contribution, school trip, school camp, field trip, etc. will therefore no longer be reimbursed.
What does the Foundation Leergeld Parkstad reimburse?
Of course, you can continue to make requests to us for sports, scouting, birthday box, a bicycle, school supplies pass, logo gym clothes, work clothes, rental locker, staying over, music, swimming, theater or dance lessons, etc.
Our regulation can be found at this link.
Should you have any further questions, please let us know. We are of course willing to explain further. Please direct your questions to email@example.com.
