Work Study Program Policies and Procedures

General Guidelines for the Work Study Program

  • The Work Study jobs are part of a financial aid package designed to assist families who have indicated a need for assistance.
  • The Business Manager will provide the FACTS Grant & Aid applications for families who desire to apply for Work Study assistance.
  • Families need to apply each year to be considered.
  • Family members, but not other students or friends, may work to assist the student receiving Work Study assistance.
  • The Work Study assistance, as a part of the financial aid package, is a privilege, not a right. Hours not completed by May 31 will be billed to the student’s account.

Procedure for Awarding Work Study Assistance

  • Oak Grove Lutheran School makes use of the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment Service to process and determine the amount of financial aid a student is to receive based upon the information that has been provided by the family.
  • Mandatory discounts are included in the dollars available for financial assistance.
  • Mandatory discounts include:
    • Oak Grove sibling discount
    • Oak Grove staff member discount
    • Concordia staff discount
    • Clergy discount

Procedure for Making Work Study Assignments

  • Work Study assignments will be coordinated by the Principals, Supervisors, Athletic Director and the Admissions Director.
  • Work Study assignments, whenever possible, will FIRST be used to fill Oak Grove’s needs.
  • Oak Grove staff will be given an opportunity to make requests for Work Study students to assist them in their respective area.
  • After Work Study assistance has been granted, information will be distributed concerning potential job assignments.

Responsibility for Documenting Work Study Hours

  • The student doing Work Study will be given a form to document the time spending on the job. The form must be completed immediately after finishing the Work Study assignment.
  • The supervisor in charge will sign off on the form and return it to the Administration Office.
  • No credit for hours worked will be given if a form is not submitted.
