Adult Education Policies
The Center of Higher Educational Achievement Adult Education Center (CHEA), admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students by the Center. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, and other school-administered programs.
All students will be administered a State of Michigan approved placement test for possible enrollment. Students will be placed in their assigned academic program based on Placement Test results. Enrollment is granted according to seat availability. If all classes are full during the time of enrollment, student (s) will be placed on a waiting list, and contacted once a seat is available.
Attendance is crucial to successful completion of this academic program; therefore no more than 4 absences will be accepted. For each absence, the student is expected to make prior arrangements to attend Friday’s tutoring session to make up all class work; with-in the same week of being absent. No missed assignments will be given during regular class hours. Students are required to call the office phone number (810) 553-2140 to inform the Center Director of their absentee. A letter of excuse will be required a pond returning.
If no one is able to take your call, be sure to leave a detailed message with your: complete name, date of absent, and contact phone number.
Tardiness is an interruption to the teaching environment, and is strongly discouraged. In the event that you are tardy, a 15 minute grace period is granted. Three tardies will be treated as an absence, and the process to make up work will be the same as stated in the above Attendance Policy. Students who do not adhere to the policies regarding Attendance and Tardiness will be suspended, and will only be readmitted upon the Center Director’s approval.
Sign In Sheets Policy
Daily, students are required to sign in and out on the Daily Attendance Sheet. If a student forgets to sign in, this will be counted as an absence. No student is allowed to sign an Attendance Sheet for another student. Do not incorrectly document arrival or departure time. This is forgery, and grounds for termination from this program.
You are required to document the exact time in which you arrived in class and document the exact time you are leaving class. Do not sign in & out at the same time. This is forgery, and grounds for termination from this program.
Time Sheets Policy

Extending Services to Currently Enrolled Students
In some cases, CHEA will request to have a student’s program time extended in one particular program. This is normally requested when more academic time is needed to show a greater academic increase. The referring agency will be charged for the additional time requested. The student must be in good academic standing with CHEA, before this request is made.
