CLS Purchasing Center

Terms and conditions applied to all participants upon purchase of subscription, service or products listed on this web site:



Annual Support
The requested annual support is based on the school’s previous year enrollment. For elementary and early childhood schools the requested amount is $7.50 per student. The amount for high schools is $4.00 per student. Support contributions are voluntary but are required to qualify for reduced pricing on other services and subscriptions. All contributions are non-refundable.



Receiving the Discount
Upon making your school’s contribution to help support the work of the Commission on Lutheran Schools, you will receive an email qualifying your school for discounts on services, subscriptions, and events. The discount is to be used exclusively for your school and is not transferable. The discount is valid until June 30 of the school year in which it is purchased and can be renewed upon receipt of your school’s contribution the following year.



Subscriptions to PowerSchool must be renewed before October 1 of each year to avoid a lapse in service. The Commission on Lutheran Schools is an authorized reseller for each of these products only for schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. All subscriptions are non-transferable and non-refundable. The use of PowerSchool is limited to the terms and conditions established by the parent company of each of these products and violations are fully punishable under United States copyright law.



Training Requirements
Training is a prerequisite requirement for subscribing to PowerSchool.  PowerSchool training is held annually in summer at a location to be determined each year. To make arrangements for training, contact the Lutheran Schools office at or call 414-256-3223.



Additional training may be available directly from the parent companies of products resold by the Commission on Lutheran Schools. Schools are free to enroll in such additional training programs at their own cost.



Training Events and Conferences
Registration fees for training events and conferences may be refundable depending on the terms and conditions established by the steering committee for each event. In most instances, requests for refunds will be determined on a case by case basis. Registrants are encouraged to present refund requests in writing with a complete explanation of the circumstances leading to the request. Registration fees may be transferable to another educator from the same congregation, depending on the terms and conditions established for each event.

I understand and agree to the terms and conditions of the CLS Programs and Services as stated above.
