The Inspector of Independent Schools has made it clear that all schools must retain ownership of non-consumable items including books and equipment purchased with Ministry granted funding. When you leave HOHL or the items no longer match your child's HOHL learning goals, the items would need to be returned to HOHL, or purchased from HOHL at a cost based on the original purchase price and depreciation over time. While some wear and tear is normal, it is expected that all loan items will be maintained and used carefully within the home.
Loan items include:
- educational equipment that would normally be available in a school
- textbooks/non-consumable books specific to next year's learning goals
Before submitting this loan agreement, please ensure you have already submitted a budget request through orcapod.ca for the items listed here.
