2014 SDEC Student Welcome Letter

Interdistrict Driving Form 2014-15

You are to be commended for your insight of preparing for your future by selecting a Career-Technical Program.  Our goal at Theodore Roosevelt High School is to equip students for high skill, high wage careers demanded in a competitive economy.   When you complete your program you should be prepared to transition to post-secondary education or your career field and, in some cases, even have obtained college credit.  Our teachers are working diligently to prepare for a school year that will be meaningful and worthwhile in your educational plan.  We hope that you, too, will come prepared to begin this school year with enthusiasm and effort to commit to your success.

You are responsible to attend classes at your home school starting on their opening day.  Your first day to report to Roosevelt for your Career program will be Wednesday, August 27, 2014.   Morning programs begin at 7:30 a.m.  If you will be riding the bus to TRHS for your Career-Technical Program, please check with your home school Guidance Department for the location and time that the bus will be leaving your school to bring you to TRHS. 

If you are in a program with a fee, an invoice will be sent to your home prior to the end of September from our Cashier’s office.  Fee payment plans are available for those who would prefer to make monthly or quarterly payments. Every year several students do not receive their passports or are delayed in receiving both their passports and diplomas as a result of outstanding fees.  Please take care of this as soon as you receive the invoice from us.  Please note on your calendar the following dates: Open House September 17, 2014; Parent-Teacher Conferences evening Nov. 24 and all day Nov. 25; and the CTE Passport program for level II students Thursday, May 21, 2015. 

Your program instructor will also be sending a letter to you prior to the first week of school welcoming you to the program.

The school calendar can be found under the Forms tab.  Your Career program at Roosevelt will follow the Kent Schools Calendar. You might want to post this in a readily available location. A Driving/Riding request form will be distributed by your instructor for those students who will be driving/riding in non-school transportation to TRHS from their home school. Driving is a privilege and will be revoked upon any Student Conduct Code violations including but not limited to tardiness to school, poor attendance, reckless operation of a vehicle on school property, and lack of a payment plan for fees.  The home school administrator must approve the form.   The Kent School Emergency Medical form will be distributed to you the first week of school.   Students must have forms on file in order to participate in classroom activities. It is important that this information is accurate and legible in case of an emergency.  All students should know the place of employment of their parents/guardians and a contact phone number in case of emergency during the school day.  Absences:  It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to notify both the home school and Roosevelt if your student will be absent that day. The Kent City Schools absence line phone number is 330-676-8750.

It is our hope that the above information will better prepare all of us for a good start to the 2014-15 school year.
