The CCBC Upward Bound Catonsville Program will serve as an intensive enrichment program designed to enhance the academic and personal growth of participants whereby, they will enter and persist in a program of post-secondary education.
The participant will abide by the rules and regulations of the CCBC Upward Bound Catonsville Program which include, but is not limited to the following: attend and participate in all classes and tutorial sessions, complete and turn in all assignments from teachers, tutors, counselors, and/or CCBC Upward Bound Catonsville personnel, perform at a minimum grade level as defined (2.5 cumulative GPA), attend all required activities, and follow the code of conduct as ascribed by Baltimore County Public Schools.
Violation of any of the provisions outlined above will result in a review of the student’s ability to function effectively in the CCBC Upward Bound Catonsville Program. The right to determine the serious nature of an offense remains with program personnel. There are three stages of disciplinary actions to be taken in the event an offense is committed.
They are as follows:
For an academic violation, the following steps will be taken: 1) participant conference; 2) parent(s)/guardian(s) conference; 3) guidance office and school notified; 4) participant scheduled for additional tutoring sessions. If participant is unable to comply a three-day suspension will be imposed; or 5) restriction of access to free time and/or extra-curricular activities.
For a behavioral violation, the above steps will be taken, excluding. If the behavior continues the participant will be expelled from the program. The opportunity for reinstatement will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.
As a parent/guardian; I agree to participate in all required CCBC Upward Bound Catonsville Program activities and to attend orientation and parent/guardian workshops during the academic-year and summer components. Parent(s)/guardian(s) are encouraged to be active participants in his or her child’s academic and personal/social progress.
I have read and agree to what has been stated above. In the event I am unable to retain my commitment, I will notify the CCBC Upward Bound Catonsville Program staff as soon as possible.
