Dear Meadowdale Career Technology Center Students and Families,
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Meadowdale Career
Technology Center for the 2023-24 academic year. This summer the administration,
faculty and staff have worked diligently to refine our focus on curriculum and
instructional practices and enhance our resources to support all MCTC students. Our
goal at MCTC is to provide effective instruction to ensure that each student obtains the
critical thinking skills, deep literacy, core concept comprehension, and the experiences
necessary to graduate from high school and to be successful in their lives after high
As we transition to a more focused curriculum, we want all students to be challenged
and to perform at their highest ability. For this to occur, an emphasis on scholarship,
respect, collaboration, innovation and inquiry are necessary if students are going to
adapt to a changing world and ultimately take part in shaping it.
We encourage our students to take advantage of the exciting career technology
programs and extracurricular activities offered at MCTC. The innovative programs and
activities provide supplemental resources for curriculum, provide employment and
academic resources for the future, promote social interaction, develop discipline, and
create life-long friendships and memories.
We are excited about this school year and are already preparing for a smooth opening
day on August 16, 2022. Our primary focus is on continued academic achievement for
all students. It is imperative that students are focused and ready to begin on the very
first day. Please make sure you check Parent Square throughout the school year for
important information and updates.
A successful school year is important. We appreciate your support and look forward to
working with your family.

Attendance Procedures

DPS Attendance Policy- Regular school attendance is required by Ohio Law. Ohio
Revised Code 3321.19 states that the parent(s) of children ages 6-18 years of age must
ensure that they attend school regularly. Excellent school attendance is directly related
to each student’s academic success.
Students with 5 consecutive days of absence or 7 days of absence per month or 12 or
more school days in a school year will be referred to DPS Student Services as “habitual
truant.” Students with 7 or more consecutive days of absence or 10 or more school days
in one month or 15 or more school days in one school year will be referred to DPS
Student Services as a “chronic truant”. No student is permitted to leave school prior to
the normal time of dismissal or to be absent when regular school is in session unless
excused by the MCTC administration.

Reporting an Absence

Parents are to notify the Attendance Office on or before the day of the absence by
calling 937-542-7053. A written excuse should accompany the student when he/she
returns to school.

Excused Absences

Personal illness or injury Quarantine of contagious disease
Death in the family Illness in the family
Religious Holidays Required court attendance
College Visits Medical or Dental appointment
An act of God Homelessness

Unexcused absences

Hair/Nail appointments Sleeping In
Driving family or friends to work Baby sitting
Suspension/expulsion Off campus lunch
Car repairs Work

Reporting an Early Dismissal
Early dismissal requests will be handled by the attendance office. Students should
submit their request to the attendance office before the start of the school day.
Parent/legal guardian permission must be obtained before the school will allow the
student to sign out. NO student will be dismissed without the proper guardian/contact
and proper identification. The administration reserves the right to review each request
and to deny those requests that abuse this privilege. When permission to leave is
granted, students will be called down for dismissal. The student will sign out in the Main
Office. Students are to leave the school grounds within five (5) minutes after signing
out. Failure to comply can result in disciplinary action.
Independent Students/18 or older: If the student has been identified as an independent
student per ESchoolPLUS, the student will be allowed to sign themselves out. If a
student has to sign out due to a scheduled physician appointment, the student is to
provide a copy of their appointment schedule for verification.
No early dismissals after 2:30 p.m.

Tardy to School Procedures

Tardiness to school is discouraged by the MCTC Administration. It is a disruption to
students and teachers who are engaged in learning. Students who are late are to report
to the Attendance Office and receive a tardy slip. Students who miss assignments as a
result of unexcused tardiness will not be permitted to make them up. Students with 5 or
more tardies to school will be referred to the district truancy officer.
Tardy to Class and Class Cuts/Not Reporting to Class
A student is considered tardy if he/she is not in the classroom when the bell rings.
Unexcused class tardiness will be considered excessive at the third occurrence.
Disciplinary action for excessive tardiness is listed in the Student Code of Conduct. Any
student who is ten or more minutes late to class without a pass will be considered to be
cutting class/not reporting to class.


Dismissal from School

At the end of the school day, students are expected to exit the building unless under the
direct supervision of a teacher or coach. Transportation arrangements should be made
so that all students are picked up within 30 minutes of dismissal. Students are not to
“hang around” nor “wander the building” waiting for rides. All students who remain in the
building after dismissal must be under the supervision of an administrator, teacher or

Lunch Procedures

MCTC operates a closed lunch policy. Students are not permitted to leave the campus
to obtain lunch from local restaurants. Students are not permitted to have lunch
delivered (DoorDash, Uber Eats, friend or relative) without prior administrative approval.





Graduation Requirements

Senior Capstone Project
Meadowdale requires all senior students to complete a Senior Capstone Project. The
Senior Capstone Project is a compilation of research, writing a technical paper,
incorporating technology, and presenting the final product to a panel.
When is the Senior Capstone Project due?
● To be determined by the respective teachers.
How will the Senior Capstone Project be graded?
● The Senior Capstone Project will be facilitated through the English courses. The
Senior Capstone Project is worth 25% of the student’s total grade for the second
What is the role of the teacher?
● To facilitate and instruct the student towards demonstrating competence in
research skills, technical writing, technology proficiency, and public speaking.
● Teachers will also support students throughout the process by encouraging them
to complete each component as it is assigned.
What is the role of the student?
● To select and research a topic thoroughly. Students will then incorporate their
findings and recommendations to a panel composed of Meadowdale Career
Technology Center Staff.
● Students must meet deadlines in order to be scheduled to present their Power
Point presentation.
● If a student does not write a paper and make a PowerPoint presentation, they will
not meet the requirements to receive a high school diploma.
The student will acquire many skills that are pertinent in today’s workplace. It is an
assessment for speech. Finally, it allows students the opportunity to meet district and
state standards through this additional assessment and can be used to fulfill a
graduation requirement issued by the State of Ohio.

Graduation Ceremony

Participation in the MCTC graduation is a privilege. Students who have met all
requirements and are in good financial standing may participate in commencement.
Seniors are given a packet that details all expectations, rehearsal dates and times, and
dress requirements. Students who do not adhere to the expectations will not participate
in the graduation ceremony and will receive their diploma at a later date.

Freshman status (9th grade) Less than 5 credits
Sophomore status (10th grade) 5 credits
Junior status (11th grade) 10 credits
Senior status (12th grade) 14 credits

Failed courses must be completed during credit recovery or during summer school

Grade Calculations

Grades are calculated each semester (twice yearly). Credit is awarded each semester.
Each quarter (9 week period) grade/percentage is weighted 40 percent, the semester
exam is weighted 20 percent, and all are averaged to obtain a final semester grade.
Example: Qtr. 1 (80%) Qtr. 2 (95%) Semester Exam (85%)
Calculation: 80+80+95+95+85=435 Semester Avg. 435/5=87% = B

Grade Point Average (GPA)

Grade point average (GPA) calculations are completed by the counselor at the end of
each semester. Students must perform well in each class (4 nine week quarters and 2
semester exams). These grades are averaged with the semester grades you have
accumulated, and will continue to accumulate throughout your 4 years of high school.
GPA: It is important. Your GPA determines class rank. The GPA is used for
consideration in scholarships, acceptance for college and university admissions, and by
potential employers. Each student should make a genuine effort to build a GPA of which
they can be proud. If an incomplete grade is assigned during a term, all work must be
completed by the end of the next term to avoid an “F” grade.

Dual Credit Program/College Credit Plus

Dual credit is the term given to courses in which high school students have the
opportunity to earn both high school and college credits simultaneously. Dual credit
courses are taught by high school faculty, adjunct college faculty or college faculty
either at the high school, at the college or university, or sometimes through online
courses or distance education. Dual credit is offered by both state and independent
(private, regionally accredited) colleges and universities.)
There will be six classes offered to eligible students on the MCTC campus:
English Composition I
Federal Government
English Composition II
US History
Introduction to Sociology
General Psychology
Each course is worth 3 semester credit hours at Sinclair. This initiative is a product of
many academic, civic, and business relationships MCTC is developing to enhance our
student’s opportunities.

Athletic Eligibility

To be eligible, a student must maintain a 1.0 G.P.A. during the immediate preceding
grading period. “Once a student attains the age of 20, the student will no longer be
eligible for interscholastic athletic competition notwithstanding where that 20th birthday
falls in relation to the sports season.” (bylaw 4-2-1, OHSAA)
All students must submit a completed student participation form and pass a physical
examination before they may practice for a school sport. Physical examinations are
valid for an entire calendar year.
All athletes must be in school the day of a game or the day before a game if school is
not in session. For example, students must be in school on Friday to participate in
Saturday athletic events.
Student Athlete Conduct Policy (from OHSAA) Prospective athletes are expected to
accept the responsibility and privilege of representing the school while participating in
interscholastic athletics. MCTC expects student athletes to treat opponents with
respect; respect the judgment of contest officials; abide by the contest rules; display no

behavior that could incite fans or other participants in the contest and which is intended
to embarrass, ridicule or demean others under any circumstances, including on the
basis of race, religion, gender or national origin; cooperate with officials, coaches and
other participants.

Discipline and DPS Student Code of Conduct

The MCTC climate must be safe, orderly and conducive to student learning. Students
who disrupt the learning process are violating the rights of those who want to learn. The
DPS Student Code of Conduct (S.C.C.) provides examples of expected behavior,
definitions of behavioral infractions including its severity (Level I, II, or III), and possible
corrective strategies. The Administration reserves the right to modify the consequences,
in accordance with due process and board policy, based on the severity of an incident
and the Progressive Discipline Philosophy. Every effort will be made to contact parents.

Lockers are the property of Dayton Public Schools. Students will be assigned a
locker to keep text books, school supplies, coats and gym clothes. Students are not to
deface lockers in any way; this includes decorating them with markers or stickers.
MCTC administration and/or security resource officers have the right to inspect lockers.

Additionally, the school will not accept responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged
possessions in lockers.

School Safety Zones

The bill defines "school safety zone" as consisting of a school, school building, school
premises, school activities, and school bus (sec. 2901.01(C)(1)). "School," "school
building “and” school premises" are defined as in the existing Drug Offense Law (sec.
2901.01(C) (2)).
School buildings, including a 100-foot radius around the building, are protected by a
special state law that enhances the penalties for any criminal action conducted within
this radius.

Clinic Procedures

The clinic is located in the main office. Students must submit a pass to be seen in the
clinic. The nurse can be contacted at 937-542-6701. The clinic is an “in school”
resource and can provide services ranging from hearing to vision screenings.
All prescription medicine must be kept in the clinic. In order for the nurse to administer
medications, a form must be completed by the prescribing physician.
The nurse will not provide aspirin, Tylenol, cough syrup, ect. to students. Asthmatic
students are allowed an inhaler, if the appropriate paperwork is on file.
MCTC is aware of the economic devastation to the region, if your family becomes
homeless or you become aware of a classmate’s situation, please stop in the clinic or
alert an administrator.
All students must have an emergency medical form on file in the main office. The form
must include a current contact number so that parents can be immediately notified in
the event of illness or other medical situation. Additional support services provided to
our students:

School Counselor
School Psychologist
Intervention Assistance Team (IAT)

Grade level Interventions (academic, social and disciplinary)

Speech Pathologist /Audiologist
Mental Health Services
Student Resiliency Coordinator
Student Success Coordinator
McKinney-Vento Children and Youth Program
School Resource Officers (SRO)

Students should rarely miss school. If your child has a chronic health condition, please
contact the school nurse. The nurse is able to provide help and resources so that your
child can attend school regularly. No student will be sent home with an illness until a

parent/guardian or other designated adult has been contacted. With parent permission,
students who have a minor illness may sign out and leave the building to go home.
The Ohio Department of Health determines the immunizations required for school
attendance. The school nurse will notify you if your child does not meet the
requirements. Parents are responsible for providing written documentation promptly
whenever shots are given. Failure to provide proper written documentation will result in
your child being excluded from attending school.
Unless a routine medication is time-specific (during school hours) it should be given at
home. All medications to be administered at school must be accompanied by the
Medication Authorization form (primary healthcare provider order) and signed by the
parent. This includes over the counter medication as well. We do encourage students
with asthma to have rescue inhalers and spacers for use at school. Responsible
students who are self-carrying their inhalers or epinephrine auto-injector must have
physician approval. Forms can be found on the DPS website under Health Services or
from the school nurse. New forms are needed each year.
Health screening is done by the school nurse for students in ninth, eleventh grade, and
those new to DPS. This may include vision, hearing, and dental. If you do not want your
child to participate in the health screenings, you must send a written note to the school
nurse. You will be informed in writing if your child needs a medical evaluation for a
possible problem.
Please be sure the school (office, teacher and nurse) has correct phone numbers and
contact names for your student in the event of an emergency.
