Supplies

Students will supply their own books and materials, and are expected to bring pens/pencils, paper, a three-ring binder, and any textbooks, research notes, homework, and handouts to every class. Policy and Public Forum debaters will also need to purchase (or borrow) a count down timing device (approximately $6).

Policy debaters will need a membership with Monument Publishing ($99).

It is recommended (but not required) that policy debaters purchase (or borrow) Keys to Team Policy Debate by Vance Trefethen (or an equivalent text), which is about $25.

You should also expect the following (approximate) additional fees:

  • $20 (per family) – CCofSE League affiliate fee (required for tournament participation)
  • $10 to $45 – tournament registration fees (per tournament attended)
  • Transportation and housing expenses to out-of-town tournaments (optional)

Communication

Routine communication with parents and students is primarily by email. For policy debate, we maintain records of each student’s completed homework and test scores. These are provided to parents, who then assign a grade for their own students. We welcome questions and comments from parents at any time about their child’s progress. We believe in open communication between leaders, parents, and students, and expect any concerns or issues that arise to be resolved according to the Biblical guidelines found in The Peacemaker’s Pledge.
