recent programs

The suspension Program:

Suspension in skateboarding is great, but unacceptable in terms of school. The suspension program seeks to reinforce parents who may not be able to take off by having their child(ren) participate in service learning during OSS. The suspension program:

  • Mitigates unsupervised students at home
  • Places student with OLLIE staff & community service options in lieu of video games
  • Discourages disruptive behavior through mentorship with community members
  • Fee: students suspended 3 to 5 days $50. If suspended 5 or more days its $75. The cost is a flat rate not per day.
