If a student will be tardy, or unable to attend a class, the student must call the Director.  The student is responsible for obtaining class notes from the Director or from another student, completing all homework, and for scheduling and passing the exam for the missed class.  The student may make an appointment with the Director to discuss the class information prior to scheduling the exam.  The homework and exam must be completed within 5 days of the missed class.  If a student is tardy twice, the student will be dropped from the program.


Students are expected to be a credit to themselves and RVPS. All school rules are to be followed. The Director reserves the right to dismiss students who are in violation of school policies, or for inappropriate conduct. The Director reserves the right to dismiss any student who is unsafe in lab.


Students aggrieved by any action of the schools’ staff should attempt to resolve the problem with the Director. The Director will make every attempt to resolve the problem within two weeks. Should this procedure fail, students may contact:
