WAIVER OF LIABILITY, ASSUMPTION OF RISK, AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT
Hereinafter called the “Activity,” I, for myself, my heirs, personal representatives or assigns, do hereby release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue the Chaffey Community College District, its officers, employees, and agents from liability from any and all claims including the negligence of the Chaffey Community College District, its officers, employees and agents, resulting in personal injury, accidents or illnesses (including death), and property loss arising from, but not limited to, participation in the High School Partnership/Dual Enrollment Program (the Activity).
Assumption of Risks: Participation in the Activity carries with it certain inherent risks that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries. The specific risks vary from one activity to another, but the risks range from 1) minor injuries such as scratches, bruises, and sprains 2) major injuries such as eye injury or loss of sight, joint or back injuries, heart attacks, and concussions to 3) catastrophic injuries including paralysis and death.
Indemnification and Hold Harmless: I also agree to INDEMNIFY AND HOLD CHAFFEY COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT HARMLESS from any and all claims, actions, suits, procedures, costs, expenses, damages and liabilities, including attorney’s fees brought as a result of my involvement in the Activity and to reimburse them for any such expenses incurred.
Severability: The undersigned further expressly agrees that the foregoing waiver and assumption of risks agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the State of California including Education Code Section 72640 and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
Acknowledgment of Understanding: I have read all previous paragraphs, including the waiver of liability, assumption of risk, and indemnity agreement, know, fully understand its terms, acknowledge these and other risks that are inherent to the Activity, and understand that I am giving up substantial rights, including my right to sue. I acknowledge my participation is voluntary, that I knowingly assume all such risks, and that I am signing the agreement freely and voluntarily, and intend by my signature to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the extent allowed by law.
In the event of any illness or injury, I give full authority to the district staff to obtain such medical treatment and/or surgery from a licensed physician/surgeon, paramedic or hospital as deemed necessary for the welfare of my child. I acknowledge that I fully and completely understand the potential risks that may be associated with this Activity and that my child’s participation is strictly voluntary.
Additional Information - Supervision of Minors: Chaffey College assumes no responsibility for the supervision of minor students outside the classroom setting. Parents are responsible for providing transportation and ensuring their children are supervised before and after class, and if or when a class is cancelled or dismissed earlier than the scheduled time. Chaffey College will not call the parent/guardian if a student is absent, nor will we verify attendance.
Course Content: College is an adult environment with minimal supervision. Discussion topics and course materials are generally designed for adult students and may not be appropriate for younger students. Course content will not be altered to accommodate younger students.
Release of Academic Information: In compliance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, I understand that Chaffey College may share my academic information with the k12 governing board designee associated with the high school noted in this form and that Chaffey College will not release any student records other than directory information to any other entity or individual, including the parent(s), without the written consent of the student.
Internet Usage: Many courses required computer lab work or research projects that could involve the Internet. Chaffey’s computer network provides access to the Internet in classrooms, labs, and the library. The College does not block access to specific Internet sites. As a result, it is possible for your son/daughter to reach an Internet site that you may feel contains inappropriate material.
