(will be added here as received)
We are pleased to share information that will help our families in making choices with regard to the use of the vendor funds we provide. You may choose to use these funds for classes in the community and/or for extra curriculum and materials that goes beyond what we provide at our resource centers.
The Current Vendor Class List contains information about local businesses who provide opportunities for our student to engage in a range of activities. (Families served through our offices in Sonora and the Bay Area will want to check with their respective sites regarding vendors and policies for their areas.) Please be aware that Vendor Funds can only be applied to group class opportunities (three or more students per instructional session), not private lessons. Check the Current Vendor Class List periodically as new vendors may be added.
In addition to activities at local businesses, vendor funds are sometimes approved for Hickman Charter School events that have associated costs, such as Outdoor Education, our Angel Island Living History trip and the iFly indoor skydiving field trip.
Vendor funds may also be used to purchase extra curriculum or materials, please read the Vendor Fund Curriculum Policy document and then the Pre-Approved Vendor List. These documents are updated as changes occur so please be sure to check the current documents as you make your decisions. Links to order forms are in the Pre-Approved Vendor List and vary depending on the vendor.
Carnegie Arts Center, Turlock
Though not a "vendor", we have established a partnership with the Carnegie Arts Center in Turlock, whereby interested Hickman Charter School families can apply for grant funds to subsidize the cost of their offerings.
