我忘記我的登錄密碼。所以我按照 Forgot Password 的程序送出重新設定密碼的請求，但是一直都沒有收到重設密碼的電郵。
請檢查電子信是否出現在 Spam Folder 裡。通常重新設定密碼的電郵會在送出申請後兩分鐘之內送達。如果沒有收到的話，絕大部分的情況，重設密碼的電子信都出現在 SPAM Folder 裡。
是。服務記點的計算是以每一個家庭為單位。在同一個家庭裡的每個成員（爸爸、媽媽、監護人等）所得到的服務點數將會加總在一起。如果登錄到『實驗中文線上系統』後，加總的服務點數會出現在 Service Point Report 裡。
整個系統的操作介面和說明都是以英文為主。在需要填入資料的表格裡 有三個需要中文欄位：學生，家庭成員（父親，母親），還有緊急連絡人的中文名字，這位都是非必要可以空白的欄位。 其他的欄位可以同時接受英文和中文。
『實驗中文線上系統』完全可以在平板電腦（Tablet）上操作使用，比如 Apple iPad, Samsung Galay Tab, Nexus 7等。家長們可試著用平板電腦上的中文手寫輸入介面輸入中文字。
我的 Service Point Report 裡有列出這學期所完成的服務記點工作，但是在註冊時卻沒有相對應的退款項目，這是怎麼回事？
這很有可能是您個人檔案在資料庫裡有重覆。請直接電郵 email@example.com 說明您的情況和登錄帳號。相關人員收到後將迅速調整您的紀錄。
目前系統並不提供改變登錄用電郵地址的功能。如果您需要改變，請電郵 firstname.lastname@example.org 說明目前登錄和新的電郵地址，相關人員收到後將迅速調整您的紀錄。讓使用者能夠自行變更登錄用電郵地址的功能將在近期內加入。
Family ID 長什麼樣子？
Family ID 是一個三位或四位數的數字，多半很容易就記下來。
使用 Family ID 有什麼好處？
- 每年家庭點數的結算是以家庭為單位。每個家庭可以有不同的帳號，包括爸爸媽媽，其他長輩或監護人等。不同的帳號用 Family ID 連結到同一個家庭，以確保家庭沒有遺露任何服務點數的計算。
- 目前許多家庭只有一個帳號（比如說媽媽），但是在登記服務點數工作後，實際參與活動簽到的可能是其他人（比如說爸爸或爺爺）。使用 Family ID 可以讓學校工作人員有效並正確地完成服務點數的記錄。
什麼時候需要使用 Family ID？
我怎麼知道我的 Family ID 是什麼？
請登錄到 ECS Online 後，您的 Family ID 將顯示在主要畫面上面的歡迎訊息裡。
中文學校的學費可以用來報 Dependent Care FSA (Flexisbile Spending Account) 費用嗎？
不可以。Dependent Care FSA 的費用主要是針對子女的 day care, after school care 和 summer camp 的費用。在星期日下午上課的中文學校並不符合這樣的資格。
有。實驗中文學校在於 2019-2020 學年第一次開辦成人會話班。
怎麼沒收到學校的公告電子信 (Weekly Announcement)？以前都有收到，怎麼突然沒有了？
學校在每個有上課的週日之前的那一週，一定會發出公告電子信。如果在星期五沒有收到中文學校的公告電子信，請先到 Spam Folder 檢查，如果是使用 Gmail 的家長，在 Spam folder 找到學校的公告電子信，請按滑鼠右鍵，選擇 "Not Spam"。

The service point earned from the people (husband, wife, guardian, etc.) in the same family will be added together, which becomes the service point balance.

Service Point System

My son will quit Chinese school after the fall semester is over. Can I get refund for the spring semester tuition?

About Family ID
In order to run the school events that involved service point tasks, many event sign-up may require the parents to fill in the Family ID.
What does the Family ID look like?
It is a 3-digit or 4-digit number, which should be easy to remember.
What is good about the Family ID?
- The service point calculation is based on individual family, which can have multiple accounts (parents, grandparents, guardian, etc.). The Family ID ensures all the service points from different accounts that are associated to the same family are accounted for.
- Many families have only one account (such as mom's account) assoiated to the family. A service point task can be signed up by the only account user (e.g. Mom) but the service point task can be fulfilled by another person (e.g. Dad) - which creates confusion in some circustances. With the use of Family ID can allow the school to efficiantly record such service task in the system without confusion.
When to use the Family ID？
- Some academic events, such as the sign-up sheet for the vocabulary contest judge meeting.
- Some events that the families can sign up with the room parents, such as the New Year Festival
