Students are assigned academic learning and a minimum number of practical experiences. Academic learning is evaluated after each unit of study. Practical assignments are evaluated as completed and counted toward course completion only when rated as satisfactory or better. If the performance does not meet satisfactory requirements, it is not counted and the performance must be repeated. At least two comprehensive practical skills evaluations will be conducted during the course of study. Practical skills are evaluated according to text procedures and set forth in practical skills evaluation criteria adopted by the school. Students must maintain a written grade average of 70% and pass a final written and practical exam prior to graduation. Students must make up failed or missed tests and incomplete assignments. Numerical grades are considered according to the following scale: 90-100 Excellent; 89-79 Very Good; 78-70 Satisfactory; 69 and below Unsatisfactory.
All Students must keep a 67% attendance rate and a 70% academic rate.
ATTENDANCE PROGRESS EVALUATIONS
Students are required to attend a minimum of 67% of the hours possible based on the applicable attendance schedule in order to be considered maintaining satisfactory attendance progress. Evaluations are conducted at the end of each course’s evaluation period to determine if the student has met minimum requirements.
Students must present a formal excuse for all absences. Excuses will be placed in the student’s file. Students are not permitted to be tardy 3 times within 30 days.
