York Construction Academy expects students to attend all classes. However, we recognize that there may be times when a student may be late or miss classes.
Students are expected to treat their attendance at YCA same as at work environment. Students are required to notify the School upon each absence occurrence:
- All students are responsible to provide the school with at least 5 business days notice for necessary scheduled appointments resulting in absence (for example: Court, Doctor’s Appointment and Immigration Matters). The student may be asked to provide documented proof of appointment should there be more than one occurrence. EXCEPTION: Students are permitted to provide 24-hour notice for last minute appointments made beyond their control.
- Should a student miss 2 consecutive days of training as a result of illness, it is the responsibility of the student to provide a doctor’s note indicating that they were unable to attend classes.
- Students that are late on more than 2 separate occasions without a notice before 9:00 am are responsible for providing documented proof of necessary appointments.
- Excessive Tardiness or Excessive Absences (ex: once a week) (even with phone calls and/or e-mails to YCA staff) is a subject for Withdrawal (see Withdrawal Policy for details).
