SKILLS USA

Each year students from CTE compete against other technical students in statewide and national events through our association with SkillsUSA. SkillsUSA-VICA is a national organization serving a quarter-million high school and college students and professional members who are enrolled in technical, skilled, and service occupations, including health occupations.

NATIONAL TECHNICAL HONOR SOCIETY

Outstanding CTE students are formally recognized and honored as members of the National Technical Honor Society. The recognition is earned through academic achievement, citizenship and community service.

SCHOOL CLOSING

In the event of severely inclement weather, school may be delayed or closed. The same conditions may necessitate early dismissal. All announcements will be made over radio stations.

DRESS AND APPEARANCE

Many programs require professional attire, purchased by the school, to be worn during class time.

Students dress shall not detract from the educational process and appearance will reflect personal cleanliness, neatness and hygiene consistent with the expectations of parents and school authorities. Shorts are permissible, but must meet the following guidelines:
• No cut-off jeans, pants, or spandex shorts
• No holes in the shorts
• Shorts must be AT LEAST fingertip length

Bare midriffs and obscene offensive or suggestive clothing are NOT allowed. Any item of clothing which illustrates drug or alcohol use will NOT be allowed.

Students dressed inappropriately will be asked to change; repeat offenses will result in disciplinary action.

CORRIDOR BEHAVIOR

School hallways are public passways and students are asked to act responsibility.

AUTOMOBILES AND PARKING

Students who have permission to drive their cars to school must do the following:

• Register the vehicle in the Technical Center office and display their student parking sticker appropriately.
• Park in the assigned student parking area.
• Drive responsibly on and near school grounds.
• Do NOT go to your vehicle during the school day.

Violation of any of the above will result in loss of this privilege. The school is not responsible for any vehicles in the parking lot.
