CHAPERONE SYSTEM

In order to more effectively supervise our students, the School of Ballet Chicago has developed the following system to monitor students’ travels and activities. All students, regardless of chaperone level are escorted by a chaperone within the University Center. For travel outside of the University Center, including outings and field trips, Ballet Chicago has implemented the following system: 

UNCHAPERONED: The student may travel to and from any area outside the studio or dormitories on their own, without supervision.
BUDDY SYSTEM:    The student may travel to and from any area outside the studio or dormitories as long as they are with ONE other person.**
GROUP: The student may travel to and from any area outside the studio or dormitories as long as they are in a GROUP OF 4 (3 other people and themselves).**
CHAPERONED: The student MAY NOT travel to and from any area outside the studio or dormitories unless they are with a Chaperone, Resident Advisor or Designated Adult (i.e. parent or relative).

Ballet Chicago issues an identification card to each student. The card is used to identify the student's chaperone level. The University Center issues a key card/photo ID to each student. The card is used to allow admittance into the University Center dorms. The Ballet Chicago identification card and the University Center issued key card/photo ID must be kept on all students at all times.

Please read and discuss the options listed above with your child.  It is imperative that all parties understand the student-chaperone system and adhere to it. 

A $20.00 fee will be charged to the student if the chaperone level is changed. Please decide carefully when choosing the appropriate level for your child. Students will also be charged a $20 fee for replacing a lost card.

**Please note:  The term “person/people” can refer to another student, relative, etc.  It does not refer to a Chaperone, Resident Advisor or Ballet Chicago Staff member.
