In addition to the $50 administrative fee a weekly payment is due before each group session. Payments can be made on-line or by mail.  Once the payment is made, parents will be able to download the weekly reading and homework for course.  If a participant is more than one week behind on payment, he/she will be terminated from the class and must repeat the entire court ordered program at the next scheduled session.

The cost of weekly sessions is income-based according to the COPE Sliding Fee Scale.   If you qualify for one of the lower fees on the sliding scale, remember the corresponding coupon code and enter it upon "checkout."   You will be given the correct discount when you pay for the session to download your reading and homework assignment.
