CITYWIDE RACIAL EQUITY GOALS AND STRATEGIES EQUITY GOAL #1 We will end racial disparities within city government, so there is fairness in hiring and promotions, greater opportunities in contracting, and equitable services to all residents.

EQUITY GOAL #2 We will strengthen outreach, public engagement, and access to City services for communities of color and immigrant and refugee communities, and support or change existing services using racial equity best practices.

EQUITY GOAL #3 We will collaborate with communities and institutions to eliminate racial inequity in all areas of government, including education, criminal justice, environmental justice, health, housing, transportation, and economic success.

NOTICE OF NON-DISCRIMINATION

Portland Parks & Recreation programs and services reflect the cultural diversity of our community. We do not discriminate on the basis of religion, race, color, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, age or ability.

SPECIAL NEEDS

In compliance with Civil Rights laws, it is the policy of the City of Portland that no person shall be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination in any City program, service, or activity on the grounds of race, color, national origin, or disability. To help ensure equal access to City programs, services, and activities, the City of Portland reasonably provides: translation and interpretation services, modifications, accommodations, auxiliary aides and services, and alternative format.

SCHOLARSHIPS

City of Portland residents, regardless of age, who require financial assistance may apply for partial scholarships. Contact individual centers for information.

OVERALL STRATEGIES 1. Use a racial equity framework: Use a racial equity framework that clearly articulates racial equity; implicit and explicit bias; and individual, institutional, and structural racism. 2. Build organizational capacity: Commit to the breadth and depth of institutional transformation so that impacts are sustainable. While the leadership of electeds and officials is critical, changes take place on the ground, through building infrastructure that creates racial equity experts and teams throughout the city government. 3. Implement a racial equity lens: Racial inequities are not random; they have been created and sustained over time. Inequities will not disappear on their own. It is essential to use a racial equity lens when changing the policies, programs, and practices that perpetuate inequities, and when developing new policies and programs. 4. Be data driven: Measurement must take place at two levels—first, to measure the success of specific programmatic and policy changes; and second, to develop baselines, set goals, and measure progress. Using data in this manner is necessary for accountability. 5. Partner with other institutions and communities: Government work on racial equity is necessary, but insufficient. To achieve racial equity in the community, government needs to work in partnership with communities and institutions to achieve meaningful results. 6. Operate with urgency and accountability: When change is a priority, urgency is felt and change is embraced. Building in institutional accountability mechanisms using a clear plan of action will allow accountability. Collectively, we must create greater urgency and public commitment to achieve racial equity.

CITY OF PORTLAND CIVIL RIGHTS TITLE VI NOTICE The City of Portland operates without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, age or disability in accordance with the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, Executive Order 12898 on Environmental Justice and related statutes and regulations, including Title II of the ADA, ORS chapter 659A, and Portland City Code Chapter 23. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act requires that no person in the United States shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any City program or activity, on the grounds of race, color, or national origin. To help ensure access to City programs, services and activities, the City will provide translations, will reasonably modify policies and procedures and will provide auxiliary aids or alternative formats to persons with disabilities. For accommodations, translations, or additional information, contact the Title VI/Title II Program Manager at Room 1204, 1120 SW 5th Avenue, Portland, OR 97204, by email at title6complaints@portlandoregon.gov or by telephone 503-8232559, City TTY 503-823-6868, or use Oregon Relay Service: 711. Any person who believes they have been aggrieved by an unlawful discriminatory practice may file a complaint with the Bureau or the City. Any Title VI complaint must be in writing and filed with the Bureau’s Title VI Program Manager within one hundred eighty (180) days following the date of the alleged discriminatory occurrence.

INCLEMENT WEATHER

PP&R classes, activities, rentals, and sports events may be canceled due to inclement weather, such as ice, snow, or extreme heat. Check with your PP&R facility for the most current information via phone or online at portlandparks. org. Some recreation programs may run as conditions and staff availability allow. Safety is a major factor in determining operations at each PP&R facility. PP&R facilities, our social media outlets, and our website will all feature operating information including opening and closing times.


Dear Portlanders, Did you know that the mission of Portland Parks & Recreation is to help Portlanders play? And the arts are fundamental to that mission—activating play through creativity and the imagination. It is no coincidence that we “play” the guitar or act in a “play.” Whether you are 5 or 95, our Arts & Culture programs have something for everyone to learn or enjoy. From hip hop to hula, watercolor to woodworking, or piano to puppetry… we offer classes in music, dance, theatre, creative writing, visual arts, and crafts. We also bring you free outdoor Arts & Culture events in your parks. These events feature Portland’s talented artists and reflect the vibrant cultural mosaic of our city. The arts, like all play, help kids and adults alike to learn, grow, and discover, while connecting us to self, others, and our place in the world. Arts and culture also gather us on common ground—to build community, to open us up to new and challenging ideas, and to celebrate the beauty of our differences—all the more important in these times. So let’s play! We hope to see you often in your community arts centers and parks.

SUMMER 2019 – PRIVATE LESSONS

1. 2. 3.

How to Register Complete this application form and return it to CMC after reading Program Requirements below. •This application is for Summer only. All students must apply again for the school year. •Instructors may require purchase of additional materials not included in listed registration fee. Call CMC for details. •Non-residents of the City of Portland pay a higher rate for lessons. See catalog contact the office for details. Wait patiently for a call from the office confirming a lesson time. This occurs up to a few weeks before lessons begin. If we cannot place a student, we maintain a waitlist through late July. Pay tuition at the time of confirmation. Once payment is received, the student is officially registered.

Private Lesson Program for Youth – Program Requirements CMC's Private Lesson Program for Youth strives to provide the highest-quality music education to as many dedicated students as possible, regardless of ability to pay. To this end, CMC makes the following requirements, which parents & students should carefully consider before committing to lessons at CMC. 1. Practice Requirements Students should practice daily for at least as much time as their lesson length, complete any homework assigned by instructors, & progress in alignment with their ability to learn. NOTE: Students who fail to progress to the best of their ability will receive instruction on how to improve practice habits. If progress is still not made, CMC will require the student & parent to sign and fulfill a practice-improvement agreement. 2. Attendance Requirements & Policies Regular attendance is important. Lessons & classes should not be missed except in unavoidable circumstances. When a student must be absent, notify the CMC office as much in advance as possible to allow for instructor schedule adjustments. Absences are either excused or unexcused, as defined below: Excused Absence: • Student Illness – CMC must be notified before the scheduled lesson time. Only one illness per term may be Excused. Subsequent illnesses will be Unexcused. • Unexcused Absence: Any cause not listed above. No credits or makeups will be offered for Unexcused Absences. 3. Causes for Dropping a Student Space in the Private Lesson Program is limited. At CMC’s discretion, a student may be dropped for any of the following: • Failure to progress to the best of their ability. • Failure to fulfill the terms of a signed practice agreement. • Failure to fulfill the musicianship requirement. • Failure to maintain good attendance. NOTE: A student may be dropped for two Unexcused absences a term, three Excused absences in a row, or four Excused absences during a term. Extenuating circumstances may be considered on a case-by-case basis. 4. Withdrawal Policy Once accepted, the lesson time is reserved for your child through summer term. CMC understands that extenuating circumstances arise and occasionally a student must withdraw before Summer ends. Because of the effort it takes to set up teacher schedules, a full two weeks notice is required. A refund of paid fees will be issued for the lessons that remain in the term. NOTE: This policy is different than the general PP&R withdrawal policy.

Suzuki or Non-Suzuki: Which method should I choose? String Lesson Program students at CMC have a choice of two distinct ways of studying their instrument in weekly lessons. The age of the student, as well as how much the parent is able to attend lessons and work with the student at home will help us make this choice with you. If you have questions, please call the CMC office (503-823-3177). CMC provides an orientation to parents choosing either method. NON-SUZUKI (TEACHER/STUDENT) METHOD This is the classic one-to-one approach to learning an instrument. The string player will practice every day at home between lessons on assignments given by the instructor. Likewise, parent/guardian involvement is not required, although parents of students younger than 10 are strongly encouraged to assist the child with at-home practice. Parent observation of lessons is usually optional and is highly recommended under the age of 10. At the start of lessons you may wish to discuss this with your instructor. New students choosing non-Suzuki lessons register for and attend an orientation in fall (see Parent Orientation in the School Year 2019-2020 catalog).

Because space is limited, a student may be dropped from the program if any of the requirements below are not met. PRACTICE REQUIREMENTS It is important that students take lessons seriously, practice every day (at least as long as their lesson length), complete any homework assigned by instructors and progress in alignment with their ability to learn. Students not progressing in alignment with their ability to learn will receive instruction on how to improve practice habits. If no progress is made, CMC will require the student and parent to sign an agreement on how to improve practice. ATTENDANCE POLICIES (UPDATED SUMMER 2019) Because regular attendance is important, lessons and classes should not be missed except in unavoidable instances. As a courtesy to everyone an absence affects, the CMC office must be notified as much in advance as possible to allow for instructor schedule adjustments. Absences are classified as either Excused or Unexcused. •

18

SUZUKI (TEACHER/PARENT/STUDENT) METHOD This is a family approach to music instruction that creates a “learning triangle” between teacher, parent (or guardian) and student. The parent, who does not need to have prior musical training, assists the young students in their practice at home each day as assigned by the instructor. When the student is not practicing, the family listens to the recordings of the songs as much as possible to create the immersion that the method requires for the best learning experience. Music becomes like another language in the home. Parents are required to attend an orientation class in fall (see Parent Orientation in the School Year 2019-2020 catalog, or call the CMC office). When filling out the application form on page 16, please list availability when the child and practicing parent can attend lessons together. Parents/guardians are welcome to rent instruments from CMC to practice at home with their child—see page 25 for details.

UNEXCUSED ABSENCE Any cause not listed above. No credits or make-ups will be offered for Unexcused Absences.

NOTE: A student may be dropped for more than two Unexcused Absences a term, three absences in a row, or four absences of any type during a term. WITHDRAWAL POLICY Once accepted, the lesson time is reserved for your child through summer term. CMC understands that extenuating circumstances arise and occasionally a student must withdraw before the end of the term. Because of the effort it takes to set up teacher schedules, a full two-weeks notice is required. A refund of paid fees will be issued for the remaining lessons in the term. NOTE: This policy is different than the general PP&R withdrawal policy.

EXCUSED ABSENCE FOR ILLNESS Once per term a student may be granted an Excused Absence from lessons due to illness, if the CMC office is notified of the absence in advance of the lesson. In this case a prorated credit for that missed lesson will be granted. Please inform CMC of the absence as soon as possible. Portland Parks & Recreation | portlandparks.org

SUMMER 2019 – FOR PRIVATE LESSONS How to Register 1. Complete this form and return it to MAC after reading program requirements below. This application covers June through August (School Year 2019-2020 requires separate registration, available in August). 2. Please wait patiently to be contacted by the office confirming a lesson time. This occurs about two weeks before lessons begin for continuing students and one week before for new students. If we cannot place a student, we will notify you as soon as possible. We maintain a waitlist through July. If your availability changes, please notify the office as soon as possible. 3. Upon lesson confirmation, pay tuition to complete registration. Payment plans, automatic payment deductions, and scholarships are available by arrangement. Private Lesson Program Policy Thank you for choosing Multnomah Arts Center for your music lessons. Our goal is to make music a meaningful and enjoyable part of your life, and we believe that participation in the arts is essential to healthy individuals and communities. Thank you for your patience as we work to provide the best schedule for everyone in our community. MAC’s Private Music Lesson Program strives to provide high quality music education for as many dedicated students as possible. To this end, MAC makes the following requirements, which students should carefully consider before committing to lessons. 1. Practice Expectations Students should practice often. A good guideline is to practice each day for at least the duration of your lesson. Talk to your instructor about their recommendations for you. Instructors may require purchase of additional materials not included in listed registration fee 2. Attendance Requirements Regular attendance is important. Lessons should not be missed except in unavoidable circumstances. When a student must be absent, notify the MAC office as soon as possible. 3. Cancellations and Absences When Multnomah Arts Center cancels a lesson due to teacher illness, inclement weather, or other reasons, the teacher will offer the student a make-up lesson if possible, generally by extending the term one week. Sometimes the lesson may be made up by offering the student longer lessons to make up the time. If make-ups are not possible by the completion of the school year, a refund will be provided. When the student cancels or misses a lesson, the student is not eligible for a refund. The teacher is not obliged to make up the missed lesson. However, if the student has given fair notice with a good reason, the teacher may schedule a make-up at their discretion. 4. Withdrawals Once registered, the lesson time is reserved through the end of the school year (in early June). To withdraw before then, please notify the MAC office at least seven days before the next lesson, and a pro-rated refund of paid fees will be issued for the lessons that remain in the term. 5. Lesson Change Requests To request a change to your lesson day, time, length, or instructor, please complete the Lesson Change Request Form, available in the office. We will do our best to accommodate your requests.

COMMUNITY MUSIC CENTER

The Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center was built as a firehouse in 1910. In 1982, it was established as an arts center by Charles Jordan, Portland’s first African American Commissioner and Parks bureau director. The IFCC has served as a cultural home for Portland’s African American community since its founding, and has been vital to the creative life of many Portland artists. Charles Jordan

PAYMENT PLAN POLICY FOR ARTS PROGRAMS Payment is due at the time of registration. A payment plan may be set up at no extra charge. However, the first payment is due at the time of enrollment. Payment plans are to be established at site of activity (or online).

It is the customer’s responsibility to contact PP&R if the credit card number has changed, to check your receipts, and to keep your contact information up to date with PP&R. We do not send out notices for cards that have been declined.

Payment plans can make auto-payments on a credit card that must be valid through the date of final payment. An automated email is typically sent to payers 5 days before the card is to be charged.

Some term-length activities are rolled over from one term to the next; in these cases, the payment plan needs to be re-established by customer request after rollover (notice will be given).

A separate receipt will be created for each activity that has a payment plan to process and track payments more accurately.

Contact the site at which you registered if you have questions about your payment plan.

Payment plans without auto-payment or with non-standard due dates may require site supervisor approval and the customer accepts responsibility for making payments by the due date without a reminder from PP&R (note late fees below). Payments are calculated by dividing the total fee of the activity by the number of payments to be made. Payments will not necessarily match the per-class amounts, and payments in a payment plan may increase or decrease based on course cancellations, enrollee withdrawal, change of length of payment plan, or credits for activities.

LATE FEES • A late fee of $20 may be charged for a past due balance. • Accounts with payments past due may prevent students from enrolling in future activities. • Late accounts may be sent to a collection agency. • If financial circumstances make it impossible to meet the agreed upon terms of the payment plan, please contact the program supervisor or coordinator.
