Early College Academy Attendance Information
As with most other off-campus programs, the MCC schedule and LPS schedules do not completely match.
When MCC is in session but LPS is not, students are required to attend classes at MCC Maple Woods. The attendance policy at MCC Maple Woods is more strict than at LPS and LPS has no control over the enforcement of the attendance policies at MCC Maple Woods.
When LPS is in session, but MCC is not, students have their MCC time to be where they prefer to be and doing what they prefer to be doing. There may be times they have to attend an Early College Session with the Director of Advanced Studies (textbook turn in for example).
The first and last days of school for the Early College Academy and LPS are not always the same in any given semester.
Students are expected to attend their MCC classes every day class is in session. It is critical to understand that missing classes at MCC can result in your involuntary removal from an MCC course. We no longer require students to sign in when they arrive on campus; however, attending MCC classes still remains critical for student success.
Any day a student does not have class at MCC, they have the following options:
1. They can go to MCC-Maple Woods to utilize the college facilities (if the campus is open)
2. Check in with their high school and remain in a designated location to study
3. Check out of their high school and leave campus
