                                  GENERAL INFORMAT ION

HISTORY
Washington-Holmes Technical Center (WHTC) was established in November 1965, to meet the vocational
education needs of Washington, Holmes and surrounding counties. The Center began classes in August 1967, and
has grown from nine programs of study to the present thirty-three (33) programs.


CAMPUS AND FACILITIES
The main campus of Washington-Holmes Technical Center is located on the west side of the city limits of
Chipley, Florida. It is accessible from U.S. Highway 90, State Highway 77 and Interstate 10. The campus consists of
26 acres and 116,164 square feet of buildings.

The Commercial Vehicle Driving Training Center is located one (1) mile north of the main campus at 661 Rustin
Drive, Chipley, Florida, and consists of two (2) classrooms, offices and maintenance area. The Interior Decor
Fabrication Training Center is located approximately one (1) mile north at 680 Second Street, Chipley, Florida. The
Public Safety Firing Range is located approximately eleven (11) miles south at 2238 Mud Hill Road in Wausau,
Florida. All instructional programs have spacious classrooms, laboratories and well-equipped shops to provide safe
and orderly instruction.


ADMINISTRATION
Washington-Holmes Technical Center is governed by five (5) elected officials who constitute the Washington County
School Board. The elected district superintendent is the chief administrative officer of all schools in the district. The
Center's director has the primary responsibility for the operation of the school.



FACULTY
Washington-Holmes Technical Center, as an integral part of the Washington County Public School System, is
subject to certification standards for its faculty that are equivalent to those required in other public supported
schools. Instructors are experienced in their respective fields and maintain high standards of instruction. The
Center's faculty members are certified by the Florida Department of Education and/or the Washington County
School Board on the basis of their technical qualification, actual work experience in the occupation they
teach, and professional training as teachers. Thus, they must have vocational competence as well as
professional teacher training.



ADVISORY COMMITTEES
The Center is served by a general advisory committee whose function is to advise and make recommendations to the
director concerning the curriculum, equipment, operation, and goals of the Center. Committee members are
selected for their interest, experience, and other qualities which enable them to make worthwhile contributions to
the community. In addition, each program is served by a craft advisory committee which is composed of men and
women who are employed in the field or trade represented by the program. These people are of invaluable service in
evaluating programs, keeping instructors abreast of current industrial needs and technological needs as they pertain
to job skills and job placement.


ACCREDITATION
The Washington-Holmes Technical Center is a public institution of the Washington County School Board, certified by
the Florida State Department of Education, and is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Council on
Occupational Education, 41 Perimeter Center East, NE, Suite 640, Atlanta, GA 30346.

ADMISSION PROCEDURES
Applicants:
     1. Complete Testing Requirements:
         Before applications are accepted, the applicant must take the Test for Adult Basic Education (TABE) given
         Monday – Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. at NO CHARGE to the applicant. Applications are provided and
         collected during the testing session.
              ** Correctional Students are required to take the CJBAT in place of the TABE test.
     2. Meet with counselors:
         After completing the TABE test, candidates meet with counselors for guidance and enrollment information.
     3. Select a Program:
         Schedule an interview with the program instructor or enter a Career Exploration Program available for
         students to explore career opportunities and program choices.
     4. Complete Entrance Requirements:
         Admission requirements vary by program.
     5. Complete Tuition Requirements:
         Candidates will meet with the Financial Aid Office if requested. Candidates will register, pay tuition and
         appropriate fees at the Business Office.


WHTC requires that applicants take the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) and demonstrate math, language, and
reading state required levels in order to enter a program without academic remediation. Students whose TABE
scores are below state requirements must enroll in a remediation program until academic levels are met.


TABE EXEMPTIONS
Students may be exempt from taking the TABE test if they meet any of the following conditions:
    •    The student presents evidence that they possess an Associate degree or higher degree.
    •    The student presents evidence that they have successfully completed, or are exempt from, the College
         Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST).
    •    The student presents evidence that they have passed a state, national, or industry certification exam in
         their area of study.
*    All Candidates must take the TABE test if it is a program requirement.

**   Correctional Officer Students are required to take the CJBAT instead of the TABE for entry into the
     Correctional Officer program. In addition, Correctional Officer students have other unique admissions
     requirements that may be found in the WHTC catalog under the Correctional Officer Program section.


PROGRAM SELECTION
The Student Services staff will explain the TABE test results and counsel with each student to assist them in selecting
                                                           9
the most appropriate career choice. Career Exploration is available to students to explore career opportunities and
evaluate program choices. After completing the Career Exploration program, students are counseled by Student
Services staff and are allowed to shadow programs of interest before making a final decision on enrollment. Upon the
selection of a program, students will interview with the instructor and upon approval by the instructor, students may
enroll in the technical program of their choice on a space available basis.


FINANCIAL AID COUNSELING
During initial counseling, financial assistance options will be discussed. Financial aid counseling is available to
provide information and assistance to students who wish to apply for financial aid. After financial aid status is
determined, all registration paperwork will be returned to Student Services. Prior to beginning class, all fees must be
paid by the student or by a third party agency.

Federal financial aid may be available to students who do not possess a high school diploma or a GED if they can
demonstrate a reasonable chance of success in a program by earning a satisfactory score on a test to determine
their "Ability-to-Benefit" (ATB) from the program. ATB is based on the determination that the student has a fair and
reasonable ability to benefit from technical training. ATB implies that a student, through evaluations, counselor,
and/or instructors interviews, is able to satisfactorily complete the work required in a technical program. Students may
take the Computerized Placement Test (CPT) which can only be given by community colleges to determine ATB
eligibility. The CPT is offered at Chipola College for a $15.00 fee. Testing is offered Monday through Thursday from
8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with extended hours until 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday through Thursday.


DUAL ENROLLMENT
High school students are allowed to enter at the beginning of each semester but must obtain approval from their
guidance counselor. Courses not open to high school students are: Commercial Vehicle Driving, Commercial Class B
Driving, Crossover Law Enforcement Officer to Correctional Officer, Fire Instructor I, and Practical Nursing.

         participating in live burn exercises.

Please see the individual program sections for enrollment information specific to each program.


ABILITY TO BENEFIT
During the pre-enrollment process, all students who do not possess a minimum of an Associate Degree, or have
completed or are exempt from the college-level communications and computations skills examination (CLAST), or
who have not passed a state, national, or industry certification exam are tested to determine their basic academic
skills. Students whose math, language, or reading skill levels are below the required level for state certification
purposes are enrolled in an adult education program for remediation.

Acceptance into a program is based on the determination that the applicant has a fair and reasonable ability to
benefit from the occupational training. Ability to benefit implies that the student, through evaluations, counselor,
and/or instructor interviews, is able to perform the work required in a program of study. Ability to benefit students
follow the same admissions procedures as other students.
Students may be denied access to a program if:
     •    They do not possess a high school diploma or GED for those programs which require a high school diploma
          or GED due to state regulations. (Examples: Licensed Practical Nursing, Correctional Officer)
     •    The applicant's criminal history would prohibit them from gaining a state license or certification upon
          completion of the course. (Examples: LPN, CNA, PCT, Correctional Officer)
     •    The applicant's physical condition would prohibit them from performing the tasks/skills taught within the
          course. (Example: A quadriplegic would be unable to complete the Heavy Equipment Operator program.
     •    They fail the physical required before entry into a course. (Examples: Commercial Vehicle Driving and
          Correctional Officer)
     •    Failure to pass the CJBAT before entering any law enforcement training program.

Students with disabilities that are unable to meet the basic skills exit requirements may be exempt from passing the
basic skills examinations by obtaining a waiver from the Student Waiver Committee. Contact Student Services for
waiver information. Students who are granted a waiver will be awarded a certificate of completion upon the
completion of their vocational program.


WAIVER PROCEDURE
Florida Statute 1004.91 requires that a student may not receive a certificate of completion without first demonstrating
the basic skills required in the state curriculum frameworks for the program. Any student that declares a learning
disability, and believes the disability may be causing them to be unable to demonstrate successful completion of the
TABE examination, and whose diagnosis indicates that further remediation will not succeed in overcoming the
disability, may appeal for a waiver through their instructor to the Student Waiver Committee. The committee shall be
chaired by the Director of Student Services and composed of the student's instructor, an instructional representative
from the Learning Resource Center, the school's Test Administrator, and one other instructor as assigned by the
Director of Student Services.

To be eligible for a waiver the student must have taken a subtest of the examination at least four times and not
received a passing score and have otherwise demonstrated proficiency in the course work in the same subject area.
A waiver will be considered only after the student has been provided the appropriate test accommodations and/or
other administrative adjustments needed to accurately measure the student's proficiency in the subject area
measured by the examination.

The committee shall consider the student's educational records and other evidence as to whether the student should
be able to pass the subtest under consideration. A waiver may be recommended to the Director upon a majority vote
of the committee. The Director may approve or disapprove the recommendation. The Director may not approve a
request which the committee has disapproved. If a waiver for a given subtest is approved, the student's transcript
shall include a statement that the student did not meet the requirements of Florida Statutes 1008.29 (3) and that a
waiver was granted.

RESIDENCY
For the purpose of assessing course fees, a student shall be classified as a Florida or non-Florida resident. A Florida
student is a person who shall have legally resided in the state of Florida for at least twelve (12) months immediately
preceding the first day of class. The following categories shall be treated as Florida residents for the purpose of
course fee assessment:
     •   Military personnel of the United States of America on active duty and stationed in Florida, including
         dependent members of their immediate families.
     •   Florida residents who had their residency in Florida interrupted by service In the United States Armed
         Forces.
     •   Students who have purchased a home in the State of Florida or who have filed for manifestation of domicile
         prior to enrolling.
     •   Alabama and Georgia residents are assessed the same fees as a Florida resident.


ATTENDANCE POLICY
Washington-Holmes Technical Center has the responsibility to prepare students with the skills to enter the workforce.
The business and industry leaders that make up our Advisory Committee are consistently adamant that the single
most important trait for success in the workforce is good attendance; therefore, the following attendance rules are the
minimum acceptable standard to be successful at WHTC. Students are encouraged to take the necessary actions to
ensure they meet the attendance requirements. Dual enrolled high school students are required to attend WHTC
based on the Washington County School District calendar, regardless of their home high school calendar. While

         Students absent from class three days in any calendar month may be placed on probation to
         continue through the following m onth. Should the student be abs ent for three days during
         the period of probation, he/she will be withdrawn for attendance. A dual enrolled student who
         has three unexcused absences may be placed in alternative education for a minimum of two weeks.

    •    Students withdrawn for poor attendance may re-enroll on a space available basis after
         approval from Student Services, and when necessary, from Administration.

    •    Three (3) unexcused tardier shall constitute one (1) absence (only for the purpose of referring to

Student performance exceeds business or industry expectations for entry level employments.               A certificate of
completion will be awarded upon completion of the program.

B = 80-89 (Above Average Performance)
Student performance meets business or industry expectations for entry level employment. A certificate of completion
will be awarded upon completion of the program.

C = 70-79 (Average Performance)
Student performance meets the minimal business or industry expectations for entry level employment. A certificate of
completion will be awarded upon completion of the program.

D = 60-69 (Below Average Performance)
Student performance does not meet business and industry expectation for entry level employment. Although a “D”
meets district high school requirements to earn credits toward the completion of high school, if the student completes
the program with a “D” or “F” average (or an “I”) no certificate of completion will be awarded.

F = Below 60 (Failing)
Indicates performance failure. Student performance does not meet business and industry expectations and will not
receive a certificate of completion. An “F” does not meet district requirements for high school students to earn credits
toward the completion of high school.

I = Incomplete A grade will not be issued unless/until the student completes the work required by the instructor. An
incomplete grade must be satisfied by the student making up the necessary work within five days or the incomplete
reverts to a grade of “F.”

Grade Point Values: A = 4.0; B = 3.0; C = 2.0; D = 1.0; F and I = 0. High school students earn a weighted value (an
additional 1 point) for all technical center passing grades when calculating their overall high school GPA.

Note: Holmes County Schools require citizenship reports. The citizenship grade includes conduct, attitude, and
effort. The citizenship grading system is as follows:

S = Satisfactory
U = Unsatisfactory


TRANSCRIPTS
A transcript listing the competencies obtained is issued to the student to accompany the certificate. The first transcript
is provided free to students. Each additional transcript is $5.00 -cash only.


PLACEMENT
Student Services and the One Stop Career Center provide placement assistance to those individuals seeking
employment upon completion of their occupational training. WIA, Welfare Transition (WT) and Wagner Peyser will
assist student to secure employment in their field of training.


TRANSFER POLICY
An incoming student who has previously attended another accredited postsecondary institution may provide an
official transcript documenting credit/clock hour evaluation achieved for a specific technical program for credit
evaluation at the time of initial application. Transfers are evaluated on an individual basis by the program instructor
and Student Services staff based on official records received from the sending institution.

A student desiring to transfer within the school from one program to another program should discuss the request with
his or her counselor. Such transfers must be approved by the instructor to whom the student is transferring, a
designated Student Services staff member and, if applicable, the agency funding the student’s program costs. Eligible
students are permitted one program transfer per semester for a total of two per calendar year.
In all cases the Washington – Holmes Technical Center will be the final authority on transfer credit. Acceptance of
credit completed at another institution will be in compliance with Florida Statute 1007.24(7).

HOUSING
The school does not provide dormitory space. However, students in need of housing may be aided in acquiring a
place of residence while attending school.

TRANSPORTATION
Buses from each high school and other points provide transportation to and from the Center. Adults may avail
themselves of this transportation by securing permission from the Assistant Director. Adult students may drive their
own cars. Dual enrollment students must have permission from their principal and the program instructor to drive to
campus. Special parking areas on campus are designated for student parking.



                             TUITION / FEE INFORMAT ION

FEES
All adult vocational students will be required to pay course fees prior to being enrolled and admitted to class unless
delayed by the Director or his designee. The fee shall be as stated on the course fee schedule and will be payable at
the beginning of each term (semester and summer). Students entering during the various times of the year will pay a
pro-rated amount based on the number of days remaining in the semester term.

All students will be required to register at the beginning of each semester and summer term in order to remain a
student in good standing. All fees are due at the time of registration. If financial assistance is needed, please contact
our Financial Aid Office or Student Services.


CHECK ACCEPTANCE POLICY
Checks must be written for the exact amount due and made payable to Washington-Holmes Technical Center
(WHTC). No second party checks will be accepted and checks cannot be cashed. Once a personal check is returned
to the school because of insufficient funds or account closure, the school reserves the right to refuse any further
payment made by personal check.


REFUNDS
Refunds, when due, shall be made without requiring a request from the student, within thirty (30) days:
     1. of the last day of attendance if written notification of withdrawal has been provided to the institution by the
         student, or
     2. from the date the institution terminates the student or determines withdrawal by the student.


CANCELATION REFUNDS
If tuition and fees are collected in advance of the start date of a program and the Center cancels the class, 100% of
the tuition and fees collected will be refunded. The refund will be made within thirty (30) days of the planned start
date.


WITHDRAWAL REFUNDS
If a student withdraws on or before the first day of class, appropriate refunds will be made within thirty (30) days of
the class start date. One hundred dollars ($100.00) of the Commercial Vehicle Driving Program deposit is non-
refundable.

A student who has not visited the school facility prior to enrollment will have the opportunity to withdraw without
penalty within ten (10) days following either attendance at a regularly scheduled orientation or following a tour of the
facilities and inspection of the equipment.

A student who drops a professional development, continuing education or limited contract training course on the first
day of class will be granted a refund.

A refund will only be permitted if a course is dropped within ten (10) days after the enrollment date, with the exception
of the Commercial Vehicle Driving (CVD) course. Refunds will only be made for CVD on the first day of class. The
only exceptions will be cases in which the CVD instructors determine a student should be withdrawn. In this case, a
prorated amount will be refunded.

TUITION & FEE WAIVER AND DEFERRAL POLICY
The vocational director or his designee may waive adult tuition required by law to the maximum amount
allowed in the Appropriations Act.

Those for which tuition may he waived shall include, but are not limited to, students with excessive
hardship, and any industry, business or governmental agency entering into an in-kind contribution
agreement.

Tuition may be deferred, as provided by law, for students applying for or receiving federal or state
financial aid. Any student needing a tuition deferral or tuition waiver should make application through the
vocational director or his designee for approval.

Charges for tuition, books, and supplies may be deferred for a student for whom the board has received a
written authorization or civic organization which is approved by the vocational director as authorized
organization for underwriting such an obligation.

The required tuition for adult Job Prep students is based on a charge of $2.59 per hour for Florida
residents. However, to accommodate the open entry/exit policy, tuition will be prorated by the semester or
term by the following methods:

 All above costs are calculated based on full-time (30 hour per week) students. Three-quarter time students will be charged three-
 quarters of the semester fees. Half-time students will be charged one half of the semester fees. Summer session costs will be based
 on the hourly rates times the number of hours each program meets. Summer program lengths are determined prior to each summer
 session.

 Note(s): * Required for both high school and adult students is an additional 30.00 fee for each practice mannequin.

 ** Semester charges for the LPN program are dependent upon the number of clinical hours scheduled which will be determined
 before the beginning of each semester.

It may be noted that if a student enrolls in the Corrections Basic Recruit Program, the
total cost will be less than the total of all the courses above added together. This is due
to the fact that some courses of the program require materials that would be duplicated
in some of the other courses, but would only be purchased once when students enroll in
the entire program. Therefore, breaking the program down into course sections results in
duplications that result in a total cost higher than that of the program if taken as a whole.

Prerequisites for the Criminal Justice courses include passing the CJBAT test and
passing a background check. The CJBAT examination may be taken at this Center at a
cost of $33.00 each time the student takes the examination. Fingerprinting and a
background check prior to enrollment are required at a cost of $43.25. Students who
do not pass either of these will be denied entrance to the program or its related courses.

                                           FINANCIAL AID

The objective of the Washington-Holmes Technical Center financial aid programs is to assist students who have
financial need by providing a financial aid package which may be composed of grants, scholarships, and Florida
Work Experience.

The primary responsibility for meeting educational costs is that of the student and the student's family. A financial
need is established when it is determined that the resources of the student (expected family contribution) do not meet
the cost of schooling. The total cost of attending school includes all fees, books and supplies, personal expenses and
allowable travel expenses. A student's computed financial need is the total cost of attending a particular school minus
the expected family contribution. Financial need is computed by a standard "need analysis" system using confidential
data submitted by the student and the parent. Federal aid programs, state aid programs, and many institutional
programs do not permit aid awards to exceed computed needs. This means that aid received from all sources must
be made known to the Financial Aid Office, who insures that computed financial need is not exceeded.

                                                          25
Any student enrolled at Washington-Holmes Technical Center, or any prospective student, may apply for financial
aid. However, no offer of financial assistance will be made until the student has been accepted for admission. If a
student is interested in a particular type of financial assistance, he/she should express this interest when he/she
submits his/her application for financial aid. If the student is not certain which form of assistance he/she may qualify
for he/she only needs to indicate general interest in financial aid.

It is the responsibility of the student to correctly complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The
Financial Aid Office may assist applicants with the completion and transmission of the FAFSA. All required
documents must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office within nine (9) days of enrollment with WHTC. Failure to
comply with this time frame will necessitate withdrawal of the student until the paperwork is received by the Financial
Aid Office.

STUDENTS' RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR FINANCIAL AID
As a student consumer, you have the RIGHT to:
   •    Be informed of the correct procedures for applying for aid, cost of attendance, types of aid available, how
        financial need is determined, criteria for awarding aid, how academic progress is determined and what you
        have to do to continue receiving aid.
   •    Be informed of the type and amount of assistance you will receive, how much of your need has been met and
        how and when you will receive your benefits.
   •    Appeal any decision of the Financial Aid Office with regard to your application.
   •    View the content in your financial aid file, in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
   •    Know the job description and rate of pay for any student job you accept.

It is your responsibility to:
     •   Complete all application materials correctly and submit them on time. • Read all materials sent to you from
         the Financial Aid Office.
     •   Know and comply with rules governing the aid you receive.
     •   Provide additional documentation, verification, corrections, and/or new information requested by the Financial
         Aid Office.
     •   Use financial aid only for expenses related to attending post secondary education. • Maintain satisfactory
         academic progress.
     •   Notify the Financial Aid Office of any resources not considered during your original need analysis and aid not
         listed on your award letter. Failure to notify us can jeopardize your future financial aid.
     •   Keep your local and permanent addresses current at the Registrar's Office.


ABILITY TO BENEFIT TESTING PROCEDURES AS APPLIED TO FAFSA/PELL
APPLICANTS
Under FAFSA guidelines, students who do not possess a high school diploma or a GED do not qualify for PELL
Grant funding. However, their guidelines do allow for students who do not possess a high school diploma or GED to
apply for a PELL Grant if they meet the minimum requirements on either the Wonderlic Basic Skills Test or
Computerized Placement Test (CPT).

Accordingly the following process is available to those students that wish to pursue a PELL Grant and do not possess
a high school diploma or GED:
         Currently there is no Wonderlic Basic Skills testing site in our area. However, Chipola College offers the
         Computerized Placement Test (CPT)/Accuplacer on their campus at predetermined times. Interested
         students should contact Chipola College (telephone 718-2284) for an appointment to take the test.

Students who earn the following minimum scores may then apply for the PELL Grant:
        Reading Comprehension - 55
        Sentence Skills - 60
        Arithmetic – 34

Upon receipt of a minimum of the above scores a student can then make application for a PELL Grant. Upon receipt
of official documentation of passing scores, assistance with the FAFSA/PELL application will be available by
appointment in the Student Services Department. For additional information or for an appointment please call our
Financial Aid Department at (850) 638-1180 extension 336.
                                                          26
                                THE PELL GRANT PROGRAM

The purpose of the Pell Grant Program is to provide a "floor" of financial assistance to students in higher education.
Other programs (because of the "floor" nature of Pell Grant) are thus secondary or supplementary to Pell Grant. The
Pell Grant makes funds available to eligible students attending approved colleges, community/ junior colleges,
technical centers, and schools of nursing.

To apply for a Pell Grant, you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in accordance with
the instructions of the application and return that completed form to the Financial Aid Office. Read instructions
carefully. Do not estimate. Take your financial information directly from your tax forms. The Financial Aid Office will
transmit the FAFSA form electronically and schedule you a date to return for processing the results which will be
returned to the school in an Institutional Student Information Record.

Determination of the grant amount will be based on the Student Expected Family Contribution (EFC) contained in the
Institutional Student Information Record, the cost of attendance at the eligible school of your choice, and the payment
schedule issued to all eligible educational institutions by the US Department of Education.

To be eligible to receive the Pell Grant, the student must be enrolled in a program that:
         •    Is at least 600 clock hours in length.
         •    Is postsecondary in nature.
         •    Admits as regular student only persons who:
                    o Have a high school diploma
                    o GED certificate, or
                    o Who have passed an Ability-to-Benefit test.

One of the criteria for financial aid eligibility is meeting and maintaining the financial aid academic progress
requirement at WHTC defined by the school policy. It is the student's responsibility to read and understand these
requirements.


PELL GRANT PROCESS
After receiving the Institution Student Information Record (ISIR), the applicant will return to the Financial Aid Office for
a review of the ISIR and completion of the Financial Aid Folder.

The following information is required for each folder:
     1.   Application for Vendor Status / Pell Grant Stipend.
     2.   W-9.
     3.   Certification of Financial Aid Information.
     4.   Student Data Form.
     5.   Non-filer Statement, if applicable.
     6.   Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress.
     7.   Verification Worksheet, if selected for verification.
                    Verification - is a required federal process of checking the accuracy of information that applicants
                    supply on their financial aid applications. Applicants who apply for financial aid should be aware
                    that they may be selected for verification. Selection is based on Federal Department of Education
                    guidelines. If the applicant is selected he/she will be notified. Applicants selected for verification are
                    not eligible to receive financial aid funds until they have submitted all required verification informa-
                    tion.
     8. A copy of all Income Tax Return's required for the filing of the FAFSA.
     9. Verification of all untaxed income reported on the FAFSA.

Obtaining information is the responsibility of the student. No federal funds can be disbursed until the
student's financial aid folder is complete. If a student changes enrollment status or programs, it is important
to notify the Financial Aid Office to ensure Financial Aid benefits are calculated accurately.
