The Cosmetology Program at CHS provides students with the unique opportunity to receive Instructional
hours that make them eligible to apply for the Alabama Board of Cosmetology Licensing Exam. This
means that a CHS Cosmetology student can leave CHS and upon passing the licensing exam, be qualified
to work as a licensed professional in salons such as: J.C.Penney, Dillards, SmartStyle, etc. Therefore,

                      Mrs. Taylor expects each student to:
       1. Respect the rights of other students to learn.
       2. Leave all gossip, drama, and attitudes outside of class.
       3. Come to class prepared to WORK!!!
       4. Be Creative
       5. Treat others the way that you want to be treated!
       6. Put Quality before quantity! Work toward your personal best. Mediocrity is for
          ordinary people. Be EXTRAORDINARY!
       7. Respect other's property. If it doesn't belong to you, don't bother it!
       8. Be a Leader and bring unity among your classmates. Don't be a troublemaker or a
          peace breaker.

          Mrs. Taylor everywhere you go. Make us proud!
       10. Follow all class rules and CHS rules while in the Cosmetology Lab. Bad behavior,
       snappy attitudes and defiance have no place in Mrs. Taylor's Class. If you have a

       expect the following discipline:
