Time Clock Policy

The time clock will be the basis for recording student attendance and meeting state minimum attendance requirements for licensure. It is student responsibility to use the time clock in accordance with this policy to accurately record their attendance and be a basis for student suspension or termination from Academy. Staff has authority to amend student time cards as designated occurrences though the procedures of this policy, In no event can time be deducted as a disciplinary measure.

Time Card Procedure

Students will clock in and out as they arrive and leave the Academy building. Students are to clock out anytime they leave the building, lunches and any activity that is not directly involved with the curriculum. Time as recorded on the time clock will stand as entered unless time can be accounted for as noted below. These considerations will credit the student with a maximum attendance time in respect to the proper use of this policy. For errors or omissions on the time clock the staff will deter-mine through documented sources, i.e., appointment book, attendance sheet, staff notations and times on progress sheets etc., to determine the student’s presence.

Recorded time entries will stand as entered on the monthly report; except in the occurrence where acceptable documentation supports student attendance. In which case the staff is authorized to make adjustments showing no more than one hour not being earned for students entering the Cos-metology School. For students leaving the school and not following this policy will be credited only where documentation supports. In the event of the time clock failing to operate properly, staff will put hours into the computer.

If staff discovers an occurrence not adequately covered in this policy they are to credit student hours as the time clock entries only; and, bring such cases to the attention of the North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center administration in writing, Administration decision on such occurrences will be final.

Students who do not use the time clock as directed by this policy are subject to the progressive discipline policy outlined in the Port Angeles School District student handbook.

Dress Code

The Cosmetology industry, like other fashion related industries, sets current trends. The Academy recognized the importance of current trends in hair, make-up, and clothing, along with the personal hygiene and grooming, in making a professional image. The Academy insists that each student con-tribute to the total Academy image by adhering to the following guidelines: Hair shall be clean. Properly styled and make-up applied prior to arriving at Academy. Fingernails and toenails shall be clean and well manicured or pedicured. The body and mouth shall be free from unpleasant odors. Clothing and footwear shall be kept clean and in good repair. Appropriate clothing must be worn to maintain a current professional appearance. Students must wear black scrub uniform with closed toed shoes, at all times, when clocked in.

The NOPSC Cosmetology School disallows any:

Any sheer or lace (skin or undergarments showing through pants or shirts)
Any low cut, crop tops or halter-tops (mid-drift and private parts are to be covered, not hanging out).
Any torn, frayed or soiled garments. Shoes must be NEAT and CLEAN.
Open toe, flip-flops, or sandals are not allowed.
Any spandex tops or pants are not allowed.
NO jogging attire. No sleeveless, although okay under your uniform, no hooded sweatshirts

Interim Class Policy

It is not enough to be able to do services well without time consideration or to do services fast with-out consideration of quality. This profession demands both. It is the policy of this institution to es-tablish procedures to help the student meet industry expectations of job readiness. When the stu-dent has completed their freshman training cycle, they will be assigned to the interim area of the clinic classroom. They will be assigned worksheets of specific requirements that will be designed by the staff in one-week increments to ensure the student will encounter certain learning experiences. The interim period is scheduled to be 64 hours long. Each weekly assignment will be designed to en-courage the student to perform certain minimum time and quality levels that reflect overall pro-gress. If the student does not meet the time and quality expectations of the Interim period they may be re-assigned specific requirements in their problem areas and given another period of time to suc-cessfully achieve the time and quality levels expected.

If after the reassignments, the student fails to meet the time and quality expectations there will be a question of the student’s ability to benefit from the training to meet the minimum job entry skills expected of this profession. At the time the student must be counseled on their progress in order to determine the reason for their lack of progress. The lack of progress exhibited by the student may be grounds for termination of suspension. When appropriate, the student may continue attendance without credit until they can meet the progress expectations. At that time, their attendance and graduation requirements progress will resume.

Transfer Students

Any student enrolling in our school with previous training from another school MUST have that train-ing evaluated. The instructor, prior to enrollment, will conduct the evaluation, it is the student’s re-sponsibility to present appropriate documentation verifying hours of previous training, The student
will be given hour-for-hour credit for any previous documented training if the student can success-fully demonstrate that the learning objectives have been net.

Re-Enrollment After Dropping

Subject to Skills Center enrollment eligibility, students re-enrolling must complete a North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center enrollment form in order to re-enroll.
