Jackrabbit, Parent Portal, and My Account
July 15, 2021
What is Jackrabbit?
Jackrabbit is the online class management system that we use at Fleetwood Dance Center to schedule our classes, manage our student accounts, and provide you with secure payment processing.
Is my information safe?
Absolutely! Jackrabbit is fully PCI compliant. Your personal information is securely encrypted, and is stored in servers that are in the same data center as some of the nation’s largest banks. You can sleep soundly at night knowing your data is probably safer than if it was in your own house.
What is the Parent Portal
The Parent Portal is your secure place to enroll in new classes, view account information and activity, make payments and changes to your account, view class schedules, access virtual online classes, and much more. Watch the helpful video at the bottom of this page for more information.
How do I set up my Parent Portal?
To login to the Parent Portal, click the link found on every page of our website.
Your Login is the email address associated with your account.
The first time you log into the portal, you'll want to reset the password. To reset your password, just click the Reset Password link, and follow the instructions provided.
At the bottom of this page you'll find a helpful video with great Parent Portal tips.
When logging into the portal, we ask that you take the time to ensure that your child's/children's birth date is entered into the system. This will make searching for classes easier, as the system will only show classes that are appropriate for your child's age.
Please also ensure that your credit card information is up to date. We will still be able to accept cash and checks at the front desk, but in order to use our new online ePayment system all families are required to have a credit card on file. This new system makes payments a "set it and forget it" process for you. Your credit card information is completely secure and vaulted by our payment gateway.
I'm having trouble logging into the Parent Portal. What can I do?
The Parent Portal uses your email address as the default Login ID. You can reset your password by clicking the Password Reset link and following the instructions. If you have tried to reset your password, and are still having trouble, please contact the dance center at (770) 442-5229. Our staff can help you troubleshoot the problem.
How can I view my class schedule?
To see your current class schedule, log into the Parent Portal. You'll find a schedule for each dancer in your family under the "Classes/Events" section of the Portal.
How does tuition work at Fleetwood Dance Center?
Our tuition starts at $68.00/mo for a one-hour class. Additional hours are offered at a discounted rate. Our season runs ten months, from mid-August through the end of May. Students make ten monthly tuition payments, due on the 15th day of the month.
What are your Billing and Payment Policies?
A credit card is required to set up your Jackrabbit account. Tuition will be posted to your account on the first of the month, and is automatically charged to your credit card on the 15th of the month. If you do not wish to pay with the credit card on file, simply bring your payment, in the form of cash or a check, to the dance center before the 15th day of the month.
Can I make a payment without using my credit card?
Absolutely! You can easily make your payments with either cash or a check. Fleetwood Dance Center uses an online payment system, which does require a valid credit card on file for each account. Tuition payments are automatically processed on the 15th of each month. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO PAY WITH THE CREDIT CARD ON FILE, SIMPLY BRING YOUR PAYMENT IN THE FORM OF CASH OR A CHECK TO THE DANCE CENTER BEFORE THE 15TH OF THE MONTH. This will zero out your account balance for the month. The system will not process an automatic credit card payment on an account with a zero balance, so it is important to make your cash or check payment before the 15th of the month.
What can I do if I discover a billing error?
We work hard to keep your account free from errors. If you find an error on your account, we want to fix the problem as soon as possible. Please contact the Dance Center at (770) 442-5229, or email us at [email protected] We'll troubleshoot the account and make sure that any errors are promptly corrected.
