Department Procedures

 

 

ABSENTEEISM

The Industrial Technology Department expects students to be present and engaged in purposeful daily activities.  Any absenteeism is seen as lost opportunity to learn with the class.  If the absence is excused the work and time may be made up according to school timelines.  If the absence is unexcused it is the instructor’s decision whether or not the work and time can be made up.

 

STUDENT PROJECT STORAGE

Students’ projects for all Industrial Technology classes must be picked up by the student on or before the end of the term in which the class was taught.  If the project is not picked up, it will be discarded or recycled for further use.  Any exception to this regulation must be agreed upon by the student and the teacher.

 

VANDALISM AND STEALING FROM SHOPS

Since vandalism and stealing are so serious and affect the entire educational process, it cannot be tolerated. There is a strong possibility that any student caught stealing or vandalizing will be removed from that industrial tech class immediately and for remainder of the term. Students will then be put in alternate program.  In addition, normal school consequences for vandalism and stealing will be given and appropriate restitution will be required, including payment for the damaged or stolen object. 

 

 

SAFETY GLASSES

All students are required to wear safety glasses while working in Industrial Tech Shops. Safety glasses will be warn in accordance with  Minnesota State Statute 123A.32 (over).

 

Because the Industrial Tech Department believes this area of safety to be of utmost importance the following procedure will be followed if students do not adhere to the safety glass requirements.  A verbal warning will be given the first day of class.

 

                  1st time student is working without the proper wearing of safety glasses, the student will receive written warning.  A copy will be given to student, dean and teacher.

 

                  2nd time student will be given a written form to have signed by parents and returned to the dean within two (2) days.  If not returned, step three will be instituted.

 

                  3rd time student will be removed from class as per state law.

 

If student comes to class without safety glasses, the instructor shall place student in restricted area or in a supervised non-hazardous area.
