College Visit & Job Shadow Forms & Instructions

August 01, 2017

New Instructions and Forms for the 2017-2018 School Year

Juniors and seniors are allowed college visits and job shadow experiences as a part of their high school experience and as preparation for their futures beyond the high school walls.  We encourage each student to make use of these valuable opportunities.  The student and/or family are responsible for contacting the college or shadow site and providing transportation.    

Procedures for Job Shadowing or College Visiting have changed for the 2017-18 school year.  Visits/shadows will now be allowed without question as long as the visits/shadows do not affect a student's overall attendance requirements.  Some college visit requests or job shadow requests may not be supported if that request violates the eight-day attendance policy or if a student's absences are excessive.  Other school activities will be taken into consideration in all attendance appeal situation.   Please contact Mr. Daniell, Assistant Principal, to discuss any situations in which attendance is a concern.
