I understand HCAM is a 1: 1 digital learning environment and my student will be assigned a Chromebook. I further understand I will be required to attend a mandatory orientation/meeting with my student prior to receiving the device and that I will be required to pay a technology fee of $25.00. Additionally, participation in some programs at HCAM may require my child to take online classes and/or courses from Catawba Valley Community College. If my child is enrolled in a course at another institution while still enrolled as a student at HCAM, my child is subject to the policies, procedures and regulations of the institution offering the class, especially those pertaining to grading, drop/add dates, and honor code. Any such course taken by a student will appear on the student's transcript and the grade will be calculated into the grade point average unless that course is dropped according the drop/add procedures of the outside institution. I understand that there is a GPA requirement of 3.0 to be admitted into the college academies and that to remain in the college courses during the junior and senior year; I must maintain at least a 3.0 GPA. I also understand that my student must maintain a GPA of 2.0 to continue enrollment at HCAM. Students are expected to maintain appropriate behavior while enrolled at HCAM. Inappropriate behavior may be deemed as grounds for dismissal from HCAM.
By submitting this application, I understand the commitment of effort and time my child is undertaking if accepted into Hickory Career & Arts Magnet. This commitment includes agreeing to keep my child in the program for at least one full academic year. If at the end of any high school year my child is unwilling or unable to continue studies at Hickory Career & Arts Magnet, I understand that she/he will be reassigned to the high school of her/his attendance zone. I also understand that any academic, attendance or behavior problems will be sufficient cause to rescind any reassignment that may be granted.
