Attendance is the single most important factor that will make or break your success in this program. Students are required to sign-in
daily to verify their presence. If students are sick or absent, The Student is responsible for requesting and completing missed work.

All work is expected to be completed and submitted by the due date. Late work may be turned in up to three days past due date wit a
10pt. management penalty for each day late. Work not turned in by the due date will recorded in the grade book as a zero.
event of an excused absence, the student is responsible to submit a “Notice of Excused Absence” form and request to reschedule the
test. Tests must be made up outside of regularly scheduled class time.
IV. Make Up Work
It’s the student’s responsibility to request Make-Up work after an excused absence. Each student has two (2) days from the date of an
excused absence to complete any make-up work, unless the work was previously assigned prior to the excused absence. Any exten-
sions in this time must be discussed with the teacher prior to the 2nd day. All work must be made up outside of regularly scheduled
class time. The grade for make-up work after an unexcused absence is zero (0).

Students are expected to submit quality work and are required to redo work and are required to redo work when it is unprofessional
(sloppy, incomplete etc.) All assignments are graded according to industry standards: professional accurate, style, originality and
completeness. Work not meeting these standards is considered a WIP (Work In Progress). Students may redo WIP’s as Late Work.
VI. Re-teach/ Re-test
Re-teaching is another approach in reintroducing a lesson and or skills. The student may be permitted to rework daily assignments to
meet satisfactory level, Retesting on major test may also be permitted if the students’ initial test was not satisfactory with the excep-
tion of Six Weeks and Semester Exams. Additional assignments may be assigned to a student to ensure mastery of a lesson and or
