Education and Extracurricular Activities Provisions

You can pick and choose from these provisions about your child's education and extracurricular activities to include in your parenting plan.

These example provisions are flexible. You can include parts of them or alter the wording to fit your situation. You can also write additional provisions for your plan.

Check your location's custody guidelines to find out if your plan must include certain provisions about your child's education or extracurriculars. Your plan can have extra provisions along with the required ones.

You'll find many more provisions in the Custody X Change parenting plan template.
