Responsibilities of the Student
Attendance records will be maintained on a per semester basis. The policy applies to all high school and adult students' enrolled. Students will earn credit by being present in class. Students' skill level, work attitude, and attendance records are very important in determining their potential as an employee. It is the student's responsibility to correct the attendance sheet weekly. Absences must be corrected within two weeks.
Achieving perfect attendance will grant students special recognition. Student names will be posted at the Center and a letter will be sent to their family and home school. Students will also be recognized at CTC's spring honors night. Perfect attendance means no personal absences or make-up days.
*Home high school related absences must be verified by the home high school within two weeks. Failure to do so will result in the absence being charged against you.
Home High School Related Absence
*Extended illnesses, bereavement or extenuating circumstances will be reviewed on an individual basis by the administration and teacher.
Tardies will be penalized by a loss of daily Work Ethic points. Every third tardy will affect attendance as a penalty day. Students arriving after 9:50 AM or 12:50 PM will be counted as absent. Upon the sixth tardy, the student will be referred to CTC administration for further progressive disciplinary action. If you leave 15 or more minutes before the end of class, it will count as an absence. Leaving less than 15 minutes before the end of class will count as a “tardy.”
Being present for the full class is the student's responsibility. Personal absences will affect CTC's recommendation to the home school for credit in the following ways:
|5 or Less Days:||Recommend 1 ½ credits. (max available)
|6 – 10 Days:||Recommend 1 credit.|
|11 – 15 Days:||Recommend ½ credit.
|16 or More Days:||Recommend no credit. Meet with administrator to determine continued enrollment.|
At Five (5) Personal Absences:
CTC will send a letter home reminding student of attendance expectations.
At Ten (10) Personal Absences:
a credit/loss letter will be sent to home and school.
To assist students in meeting their attendance responsibilities, the CTC staff will notify students of attendance expectations and distribute the Student Handbook.
Students on co-op or work experience training agreements are required to turn in time cards on a weekly basis. Failure to do so may result in credit reduction.
With prior approval from the instructor, a student can make up a personal absence as it relates to credit recommendations. A make-up day can only be arranged through the instructor when the home high school is not in session or has granted special permission. Students should arrange for make-ups on a timely basis and not wait for the last minute.
Make-up days have to be completed during the same semester that the personal absence occurs. Make-up slips should be turned in to student services office within two days. Skips cannot be made up. Only absences which have been confirmed by parents can be made up. Parents must call within 48 hours.
Students need to be in attendance the entire class period (2 ½ hours) and complete a make-up form in order for the day to be recorded. Make-up days have to be reported to the Student Services office. Days cannot be made up during CTC vacations. Skips and non-confirmed absences cannot be made up.
