ATTENDANCE POLICY

Daily attendance at the HCCTC is an important issue, if students want to achieve optimal success in their training.  In Business and Industry, excessive absences could result in the loss of a job. In most programs work missed is difficult to make up due to the nature of career and technical education.  Furthermore, a students' poor attendance could prevent that student from continuing at the Career and Technology Center. 

In the end, overall student evaluation is based on many factors, including attendance.  Recommendation for work education or permanent employment could be contingent upon an acceptable record of attendance. 

Procedures:

  1. All Students will enter through the front doors of the Main Building.
  2. All students will sign in and out in the main office.
    1. If a student is absent, they must notify the Adult Education office & submit an excuse to the Office.
  3. REASONS FOR EXCUSED ABSENCES

    2. Death in the family (maximum of three days without doctor’s excuse).
    3.  Medical appointments which cannot be scheduled during non-school hours.
    4. Religious holidays as designated by the Department of Education.
    5. Court order

ILLEGAL/UNEXCUSED ABSENCES/CLASS CUTS

LEAVE OF ABSENCE

Students requesting a leave of absence longer than the 3 day period required for a Doctors Excuse, must submit the request in writing to the Adult Education Coordinator at least one day prior to the requested start date of the absence. A meeting will then be scheduled to review the current status of performance if the students wished to return to the program.

STUDENT WITHDRAW & REFUND POLICY

Refunds for Students Who Withdraw On or Before the First Day of Class

If a student fails to commence class or withdraws from class on the first day of school, the school will retain no more than $30 of pre-paid tuition or fees.   Students are not required to request that any prepaid tuition and fees in excess of the first $30 be refunded.  Refunds of pre-paid tuition and fees in excess of $30 occur automatically and shall be made within 30 days of the planned start date of the class.

School Fee Refund Schedule (Self-pay only)

GRADING

The Huntingdon County Career and Technology Center will issue grades at the end of each nine weeks. Instructors will supply information to students at the beginning of the school year about the HCCTC grading policy and their individual policy.  School policy suggests that student evaluation reflect the following:

  • Copies of the POS task list will be issued to the instructor for each student.
  • Test grades can be maintained by the instructor in the classroom
  • The task list will be the record of progression for the Adult Ed office.
  • Instructors must initial and date the task lists identifying when the adult student demonstrates a proficiency in that specific task.
  • Successful progress for adult students have been identified as the following:
    • Achieving 25 % of the list by Mid Semester 1
    • Achieving 50% of the list by End Semester 1
    • Achieving 75 % of the list by Mid Semester 2
    • Achieving 100% of the list by End Semester 2

MAKE-UP WORK –

Students who are legally absent for any reason will be required to make up work missed in class.  This work should take approximately the same time as the time missed from class (plus one additional day).  A day’s absence does not excuse a student from the responsibility of work assigned prior to the absence.  It is the responsibility of each student to arrange with his/her teacher to make up any missed work during absences.  Any work not made up will be counted as a zero (0) and averaged in with other grades.

NOTE:  Students with a cumulative failing grade will be excluded from field trips, conferences and   student youth organization competitions.

CONDUCT POLICIES

It is important that the Huntingdon County Career and Technology Center promote a learning climate to help develop Job Skills compatible with the atmosphere found in a productive workplace.  Critical job skills include academic skills, technical skills, and computer literacy, but also work ethics that are indicative of students who have been taught the value of regular attendance, cooperation, safety, civility, and other behaviors and attitudes indicative of successful businesses and industries.

In accordance with this policy, disciplinary offenses are broken into five levels, with a listing of sample offenses, along with expected consequences.  The administration retains discretionary authority to adjust discipline consequences in accordance with the particular circumstances of an offense.  Each program has its own unique rules supplementary to this code and individual instructors may choose to substitute program related consequences when appropriate.
