College Visit Procedures
According to the student handbook (page 9), college visit requests for juniors and seniors must be submitted in writing to their grade-level counselor by a parent or guardian at least one week in advance of the scheduled visit. The last day for college visits is May 6, 2017. Once they return, students must bring written verification from the college visited. Approval will be granted for no more than three (3) visits per school year. Each request should specify duration of the visit and travel time, which may be approved at the discretion of the principal. Please note, the paperwork should be picked up in guidance. Teachers are to sign off on and the form must be turned in to attendance in advance. Underclassmen (9th and 10th grades) are not granted college visits. After the proper paperwork is turned in on return from the visit, the absence will be keyed into the student’s attendance as “CV” which represents college visit.
