Admissions

Students selecting Career/Technical Education programs that are available in their home school or district are to enroll in those programs.

Bus transportation is provided in most cases for students attending classes outside of their district.

When a program is two years in length, juniors will have first priority in enrolling in the beginning class.

Tenth graders are eligible for most Career/Technical Education programs providing they are ready and have permission and recommendation of their high school Counselor and Principal.

When a program is over-subscribed, the Counselor must decide which students will be enrolled.  They will base their decisions on the following:

Career/Technical occupational goals
Attendance record
Performance in pre-career technical courses
Overall grade-point average
General academic, physical and personal requirements of the occupation being considered
Related aptitude and inventory test scores
Affirmative action
