Q: How do parents stay informed about their child’s activities?
A: The Quest Forward Academy Internship Coordinator, Brian Palmer, will be the primary point of contact between interns, their parents/guardians, and the internship host. He will establish regular communications from the start, so everyone is well-informed and everyone’s needs are met.
Q: Who provides transportation?
A: For service learning opportunities, Quest Forward Academy generally provides transportation, however this is an unusual year. Depending upon COVID circumstances at the time, transportation will be considered on a case-by-case basis in advance of service learning opportunities and will be communicated to parents beforehand.
For internships, parents/guardians will be responsible for providing transportation to and from the internship site, and they may allow their child to drive themselves to the internship if they wish. If you’d like someone else to drive the student to the internship, the driver must complete a brief form and must be properly insured. No student may drive another student to an internship.
Q: What forms will we need to complete?
A: For internships, parents/guardians will need to complete the Internship Agreement, Parent/Guardian Form, and the Transportation Form (if applicable).
