CHCC Admissions Policy

It is the policy of Cold Hollow Career Center that students will not be denied access to technical education program or services on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, handicapping condition and/or disability, in compliance with state and federal laws. Reasonable individual and programmatic accommodations shall be provided to those students based on the result of IEP/504 team meetings held prior to application and acceptance into a technical program.

In general, the Pre-Tech Foundations Program is open and available to all students who are in good standing as incoming sophomores at their home high schools.  There is no priority process for entry into this program.

Application to CHCC programs is available and open to all students who will be entering their junior year for the first year of CHCC programs, and will be entering their senior year for the second year of a CHCC program.

 

Note: It is possible for sophomores to enroll in CHCC.  Please contact the Guidance Coordinator for further information.

If a program at CHCC is over-enrolled, then the Admissions Process will be used to determine acceptance into the program.  This process is designed to conform to the criteria laid out in the first paragraph of this policy.

The Director of CHCC has the final decision of acceptance should there be any discrepancies as a result of unforeseen factors.

 

First Year Student Admissions

It is the policy of Cold Hollow Career Center that students will not be denied access to technical education programming or services on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, handicapping condition, and/or disability, in compliance with state and federal law.

Admission into CHCC, are based on the following: 

  • Completed applications turned in by the deadline.

  • Students who want to enroll in CHCC should have successfully completed all requirements of their ninth and tenth grade year.  Note: a student may be denied admission if a reasonable path to high school graduation is not evident.

  • Students must be enrolled in one of our sending schools.  Home school and independent school students should apply for placement by contacting both home school and CHCC guidance offices.

 

Any Vermont resident who has obtained a high school diploma may apply to CHCC as an adult student on a space-available basis by contacting CHCC’s Guidance Coordinator.

Every effort will be made to enroll all applicants who meet the placement requirements of the desired program.  The following factors are considerations taken by CHCC administration and faculty to determine acceptance into our programs.

  • Expressed interest of the student

  • Experience in Pre tech program

  • Successful completion of program prerequisites

  • Recommendation by Guidance Counselor, or other school personnel as well as other references

  • Achievement, academic, attendance and disciplinary history

  • Selection of a non-traditional program

 

In the case of a program over enrollment a placement committee will be formed, composed of the following people to determine enrollments for any given program based on the above criteria.

  • CHCC Guidance Coordinator

  • CHCC Academic Support Coordinator

  • The Program’s Instructor

  • Sending School’s Guidance Counselor

 

Any student may be denied admission if prior discipline patterns deem it unlikely he/she will be successful at CHCC.  If a student is denied admission to CHCC through this process, an appeal can be made to the Director who will review the student’s application and make the final decision.

 

Decision Letters

  1. Acceptance Letter- A formal letter sent to applicants who have met all admissions requirements and have been accepted into a CHCC program

  2. Letter of Intent-  A formal letter sent to applicants who have not met but are in the process of meeting all admissions requirements.  It is the intent of CHCC to accept the student once all admission requirements are met. A plan of action will be clearly identified for each student receiving a letter of intent.

  3. Denial Letter-  a formal letter sent to applicants who have not been accepted into a CHCC program.  Students denied admission have the option of appealing the decision to the CHCC Director who will review the student’s application and make the final decision.

 

CHCC conducts a blind application process regarding the admission of students on IEP/504/EST plan.  When a student on a plan is accepted for admission, enrollment is then dependent upon a successful meeting with the student’s support team that generally includes:

  •  The student

  • The student’s parent(s)/guardian(s)

  • The IEP/504/EST case manager

  • Instructor from the CHCC program the student plans to attend

  • A CHCC representative from Guidance and/or Specialized Services

 

A successful meeting is one where it is determined that a student’s needs can be accommodated. Needs for specialized instruction, accommodations, modifications, other supplementary/service, paraprofessional support and behavior plans will be reviewed at the team meeting.

If a one-to-one paraprofessional will be working at CHCC with a student he/she may be required to attend an orientation program with the student prior to the student’s first day of school.

Students accepted into a CHCC program are accepted on a probationary basis. Probationary guidelines of 15 CHCC school days will be followed for all students beginning with the first day of attendance.  This phase is used to determine the appropriateness of placement.  After this probationary period, each student will be granted permanent admission or placed on continued probationary status or counseled for a change of program or rescheduled to their home school. After the initial probation period, any student may be rescheduled to his/her home school due to attendance, disciplinary, or academic reasons as outlined in the CHCC student handbook.
