As part of the ACE Mentor Program of Oregon, each student collaborates with a team of mentors and students from other schools on a building design project. Regular attendance and punctuality are essential to the success of each ACE team. ACE has the following attendance policy:
•Students are expected to be on time and attend all 13 after-school sessions.
•In the event of illness or unavoidable conflict, one “excused” absence is allowed. Students must notify ACE staff and their Mentor Captain in advance.
•Additional absences may result in dismissal from the program.
•A “no-show” is an unexcused absence and may result in dismissal from the program.
I agree to follow the ACE attendance policy and understand that unexcused absences may result in dismissal from the program.
I have read the requirements and understand the expectations of the ACE Mentor Program. By submitting this form, if selected and I accept to participate in the program, I will be committed to participate in all the sessions. I also understand I am responsible for my own transportation to and from ACE mentor meetings.
