FACTS Tuition Management is a mandatory program used by Montessori Community School for tuition payments and other incidental charges accrued for school related business. All parents are required to set up a FACTS account with registration and before a student may attend school. There is an annual registration fee* for FACTS.
FACTS allows parents to elect a tuition payment plan that fits their families needs. It also allows incidental payments to be made for every-day charges including: forgotten lunch, event tickets, merchandise, etc… Parents may choose electronic check (ACH) or credit card to pay tuition and then either use the same payment method or an alternative one to pay incidental charges. There may be additional charges for paying with a credit card. Details about FACTS fees as well as terms & conditions can be found on our Tuition Schedule & Forms page.
*FACTS annual registration fee can be waived if tuition is paid in either 1 or 2 payments.
I understand that if you have elected to help drive on field-trips, MCS requires a copy of my car insurance card and Driver's License, plus a copy of my Motor Vehicle Driving Record (MVR); to be turned into the main office. The MVR can be obtained online, at the Utah Department of Public Safety website. The site charges a nominal fee for generating this report. Insurance, driver’s license and an MVR will be due with your child’s registration. A new MVR report is required annually at registration.

The purpose of this policy is to provide flexible access to Montessori Community School while also maintaining a safe and secure facility through the limited issuance of key cards.
At the beginning of each academic year (or when a student begins attending school) key card(s) may be issued on behalf of each student depending on family requirements. The purpose of the key card is to provide access during regular operating hours of 7:30am-6:00pm on school days only. Key cards will only be used for school approved entry to the facility only.
When requested, the school may issue an additional key card to a student’s approved authorized pick-up or legal guardian. Cost for additional key cards will be $20 each. Requests must specify the name of the individual who will be using the key card, the student that the key card is associated with, and an alternative pick-up form must be submitted. Key cards issued will only work for the period each child is enrolled. Key card(s) for returning families may be reactivated once a family has completed the registration forms. The school officials may deactivate key cards at their discretion.
School approval of key cards for alternative pick-ups and guardians will be dependent upon the following:

I may request delivery of paper copies from us by contacting the administration in the office.
