Connecting Waters Charter Schools is only responsible for payment after a purchase order has been received by the vendor, services have been rendered or product material(s) shipped have been received by CWCS, and the invoice submitted matches the school’s PO.  CWCS will not pay for any services or product material(s) without a purchase order dated on or before the service’s start or shipment.  CWCS only pays for services or product material(s) that are explicitly stated on the purchase order. For example, if a vendor allows a student to complete services in September and October, but the purchase order received states the month of September, then Connecting Waters Charter Schools will not pay for the October services. The vendor will need to get payment from the student’s parent or guardian. Vendor is responsible for communicating the school's contract agreement to all instructor(s) and not to provide services without having all applicable month(s) purchase orders.

The vendor is responsible for performing a CA Department of Justice (DOJ) Live Scan criminal background checks, requesting both state and federal levels, and should have clearances for all instructors in contact with CWCS students in-person and/or online and providing negative TB clearances for all instructors meeting with CWCS students in-person.  In addition, the vendor must notify the Business Services Department (Vendor Relations) and provide instructor clearance information before allowing new instructor(s) to provide services to CWCS students. Failure to notify the Business Services Department of any new instructor(s) and meeting with CWCS students without full clearances could result in suspension of PO services and/or termination of the CWCS vendor contract agreement.
