District programs, activities, and practices shall be free from unlawful discrimination, including discrimination against an individual or group based on race, color, ancestry, nationality, national origin, immigration status, ethnic group identification, ethnicity, age, religion, marital status, pregnancy, parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, or genetic information; a perception of one or more of such characteristics; or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics.

Student Conduct

The Board of Trustees believe that all students have the right to be educated in a positive learning environment free from disruptions. On school grounds and at school activities, students shall be expected to exhibit appropriate conduct that does not infringe upon the rights of others or interfere with the adult school programs. Appropriate behavior includes being studious, engaged in class activities, careful with school property, and respectful towards teachers, other staff, students, and volunteers.

Cancellations

Classes may be canceled when the minimum enrollment is not met. If a class is canceled, students are notified by phone or email and given the following options, as available: transfer to another class or receive a full refund. It is important that we have an accurate phone number and email address in our records in order to contact you.

Missed Classes

We do not offer make-up classes or credits when individual customers miss a class for natural disasters,  illness, travel, or personal reasons. In the rare instance when a teacher needs to miss a class, our staff will find a substitute or notify you via phone or email that class is canceled.
