In order to ensure fair and equitable student access to the Calhoun Area Career Center (CACC) programming, the CACC has developed the following guidelines.
1. In January of each year the CACC will make known programming and approximate numbers available for the following school year to Calhoun Intermediate School District (CISD) constituent district high schools including private and home school academies. The openings will factor approximate number of returning students who will have priority in enrollment barring extenuating circumstances.
2. Public high schools, public alternative education schools and public/private and home school academies will have until May 1 to provide the CACC with names of prospective enrollees. Students should be 15.5 years of age and have junior or senior status by the beginning of their CACC class. Enrollment of students not meeting these criteria will be considered by CACC on a case-by-case basis. Private and home schooled students need to enroll in CACC through their school district of residence.
3. Enrollment will be accepted as received through May 15. CACC will work with local schools to correct any imbalances or overbooking of enrollments by schools. This will be done to reflect proportional school district 9-12 enrollments.
4. Enrollment will continue to be available to constituent public, private and home schooled students. Enrollment will be accepted until the enrollment cap is reached or the completion of the second week of CACC classes whichever is reached first. Late-enrolling students may be considered after this date on a case-by-case basis.
Constituent District Enrollment in Career-Technical Education (CTE) programs offered by other ISD’s
Enrollment of CISD constituent district students in CTE programming offered by other ISD’s will be permitted if the student requires a class not offered by the CACC. The student’s high school counselor should request this option as soon as possible by contacting the CACC administration. Such requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
