10
How many teachers are there?
  • We have decided to answer this question by simply
    stating that we plan to hire teachers
  • to maintain a ratio of 25 students 1 teacher.
    That way the students will be attended to
    according to their needs.

Return to Staffing Questions
11
What are the qualifications of the teachers?
Certified?
  • The hiring of the teachers will be based on the
    standards set forth by their specialty. For
    example, to be a teacher of welding, the teacher
    must be a licensed welder. This type of
    guideline will follow all of the staff.

Return to Staffing Questions
12
Is on going counseling Support available to
student if needed?
  • Each student will be assigned a counselor that
    will follow them through the program. They will
    provide the student with support, guidance, and
    will be responsible to help them obtain a job.

Return to Staffing Questions
13
Will they have any mentors in the school?
  • Although the term mentor will not be used at
    the school, the counselor will be responsible for
    30 students. They will provide the emotional and
    psychological support for the student.

Return to Staffing Questions

What are the requirements to get into the school?
  • A minimum of 15 years old, has a desire to learn,
    willing to abide school rules.

Return to Entrance Requirements Questions
15
How much will it cost?
  • The purpose of the school is to provide an
    alternative to high school. It will be funded by
    the same attendance accounting system used at
    conventional high school sites. This means that
    the entire program will be offered to the student
    at no cost to them.

Return to Entrance Requirements Questions
16
How old does the student have to be?
  • Students must be 15 years of age to enroll in the
    program.

Return to Entrance Requirements Questions
17
Do they use a uniform?
  • Although a standard uniform will not be required,
    the students will need to wear proper clothing to
    the classes they attend. The instructor will
    provide a list of appropriate clothing for the
    students.

Return to School Logistics Questions
18
What are the rules, are they any dress code?
  • The rules will be simple. Respect will be shown
    to all people, property and places. If this is
    maintained, then there will not be a problem.
    The student will receive a behavior/ attendance
    contract before beginning school. If the
    contract is violated, a determination hearing
    will be conducted with the counselor, director,
    dean, the instructors and the student to
    determine what course of action should be taken
    regarding the student.

Return to School Logistics Questions
19
Is there a limit to the number of students
allowed to attend?
  • At this time, we are estimating that on average,
    100 students will attend the high school from the
    varying school districts. With 22 districts in
    the county, we are estimating that approximately
    2200 students will attend the school.

Return to School Logistics Questions
20
What makes this school a good school?
  • To describe the school as good or bad would not
    be accurate. The school is an alternative
    placement for a lot of students that dont feel
    that conventional high school curriculum affords
    them with what they need to be successful. This
    school allows them to receive practical job
    training and the information necessary to pass
    the California High School Proficiency Exam.

21
How does a student get to the campus from their
home?
  • The student will be responsible to get to the
    high school of residence in the same way they
    would be required if they attended that high
    school. If they ride the bus, they will continue
    to ride the bus. A bus will then pick up the
    student from the high school and transport
    him/her to the vocational high school.

Return to Transportation Questions
22
How does the student get back home?
  • Once classes are completed for the day, a bus
    will take the students back to the high school of
    residence. The student will be responsible to
    get from the high school to the home.

Return to Transportation Questions
23
Will I receive a certificate or a diploma upon
completion?
  • At the end of the program, students will receive
    both a certificate and a diploma. The
    certificate will confirm that they have received
    adequate training in a vocational trade to be
    considered for an apprentice program or an
    equivalent. The diploma will come when they pass
    the CHSPE proclaiming them proficient in high
    school curriculum.

Return to Graduation/Job Placement Questions
24
Are they going to be able to work as soon as they
get out of school (job placement)?
  • This is ultimately up to the student. If the
    student is ambitious, then the school will
    provide every opportunity to find job placement
    possible. If the student does not wish to work,
    they will not be forced to.

Return to Graduation/Job Placement Questions
25
Would it be easy to find a job?
  • Hopefully, through partnerships with local
    businesses, the transition between school and
    work will be smooth and effective.

Return to Graduation/Job Placement Questions

  • Students will be required to attend school for
    approximately seven hours each day.

day?
  • The students will be responsible for taking 4
    classes a day according to the schedule that they
    made out with the counselor.

Return to Schedule Questions
29
Is the schedule flexible?
  • The schedule of classes is as flexible as the
    counselor assigns.

Return to Schedule Questions
30
Does it go by semester like high schools?
  • Because the students are not responsible for
    multiple class units, the traditional calendar
    will not apply. Students will receive a list of
    things that they must learn. Once the student
    has learned the material, the class will be
    completed.

31
What are the different subjects that I can take?
  • The different subjects are broken up in the
    curriculum portion of this website. However, for
    general information, the curriculum is broken up
    according to five departments. (CHSPE Prep.,
    Repair and Maintenance, Business Affairs,
    Construction, and Cosmetology)

What are some of the programs offered at
R.C.V.H.S.?
