What happens if the placement doesn’t work?
Our experience is that most issues that may arise are a result of miscommunication, unrealistic expectations, or cultural misunderstandings. The majority of the time these misunderstandings can be resolved with open communication and mediation between yourself, the host family, your student, and your Homestay Coordinator. If, after careful deliberation and mediation it is determined that the issues cannot be resolved, the Homestay Coordinator will place your students in another home within the same school district (whenever possible). A student may not change families without approval from their Homestay Coordinator, as any new host family must be fully screened and vetted in compliance with our program regulations.
