For each program at the Park District, there’s a minimum number of registrations needed before a class can run. Most teachers are paid per class period, not per student. So if enough people don’t register, the Park District loses money – your money. In addition, we like to keep the student/teacher ratio low to ensure you get a high quality program. In order to determine adequate registration and to avoid disappointment, we highly encourage you to register early (at least seven days prior to the first date the class is held). When a class is cancelled due to lack of enrollment a full refund will be issued.
