As a member or candidate for the Digital Media Career Academy program at Millbrook High School, I acknowledge and understand that: 1. I am making a commitment to the full three or four (3-4) years of the program that includes the courses outlined in the Program Guide found on the DMCA Website 2. I must maintain academic excellence while enrolled in the Academy. This includes maintaining a cumulative GPA (weighted) of a 2.5 by the end of the sophomore year and through to graduation. Dismissal from the program may result if my GPA falls below this standard. (One semester period of academic probation is allowed before removed from the Academy.) 3. I have supplied my WCPSS email address on the application. 4. I agree that regular updates and/or announcements may be sent home via email to both the Academy member and/or parent/guardian. It is necessary for me to have a valid email address on file. 5. I must report to Academy activities and job shadowing opportunities dressed appropriately in business attire and/or approved dress. 6. Automatic dismissal from the program will result from continuing disciplinary problems with any teacher or administrator (including teachers and administrators not affiliated with the Academy) after a suspension from school. 7. Participation and/or support of scheduled academy meetings/activities is expected of all members. My participation will be documented in the work-based learning portfolio that will be maintained throughout my Academy experience. 8.
