Phillips Career and Technical Center's Commitment
The Phillips Career and Technical Center (PCTC) is committed to providing technical training for high school students within the Southeast Arkansas region. We are regionally focused to serve students within the school districts in DeWitt, Helena, and Stuttgart service areas. Our purpose is to provide technical training that allows students to earn concurrent high school and college credit.
Student Responsibilities. Students in the PCTC are expected to follow the polices outlined below. The student is responsible for becoming familiar with and complying with the rules and conduct set forth.
Calendar. PCTC will follow the PCCUA calendar except when a student's home high school is not in session. The student should check with the PCTC instructor to determine if attendance is required. When PCCUA is not in session but a student's home high school is in session, the student should check with the high school counselor regarding PCTC classes.
Discipline. PCTC students are enrolled in college classes, so student behavior is expected to comply with college standards. Any discipline problems with PCTC students will be handled by the Center Coordinator/Director High School Relations in conjunction with the student's home high school.
Field Trips. Field trips are occasionally arranged to enhance the learning experiences offered by the PCTC program. By agreeing to this contract, students and parents or guardians grant permission for participation in these trips during regular class hours. Any field trips scheduled outside regular class hours will be announced seperately, and permission to attend must be granted in writing.
Communication with Schools and Parents. The Center will communicate class schedules, grades, absences, tardies, early departures, or discipline problems to the appropriate schools. By agreeing to this contract, the student agrees to the release of this information.
Photo Release. Students in the PCTC program may be photographed in various class activies. By agreeing to this contract, the student agrees that he/she will receive no fee and that his/her photograph may be used by PCCUA and the PCTC for publications, web site pages and in advertising, and that the University will own all rights to the photograph.
