Admissions Policy

kids-in-hallINTRODUCTORY STATEMENT

Northeast Metro Tech High School is a selective vocational technical high school that serves a twelve community district including: Chelsea, Malden, Melrose, North Reading, Reading, Revere, Saugus, Stoneham, Wakefield, Winchester, Winthrop, and Woburn. An admission process is necessary in vocational technical schools where space is a limiting factor. Vocational technical laboratories (shops) are designed and equipped to serve a specific maximum number of students safely. Consequently, a complex of such laboratories lacks both the space and flexibility to accommodate the possible needs and/or interests of all applicants. Therefore, a selection process is necessary to determine which applicants may most benefit from such educational opportunities. All applicants to grades nine through twelve at Northeast Metro Tech High School will be evaluated using the criteria contained in this Admission Policy.

Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational School District Agreement:

The Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational School District governs the admission of school district residents.  Each member town’s number of seats in the ninth grade class will be calculated annually according to the ratio of that town’s grade 9 – 12 enrollment (private and public) as compared to the total 9 – 12 grade enrollment in the District, according to October 1 data as reported by each community Superintendent of Schools.  The enrollment ratio will be applied to the total number of available seats to determine each member town’s quota.  (Example:  Community enrollment = a, total district enrollment = b.  Community quota is calculated as follows: a/b = c x total district seats available.  Then, c x 325 (district seats) = d (quota))

Applications for fall admission are due into the Admissions Office by the previous March 1st.  Based on the number of applications received by the March 1st deadline, the Admissions Committee will determine the number of vacancies unclaimed by member communities (surplus enrollment).  

Seventy-five percent (75%) of the surplus enrollment will be distributed in the first round of acceptances in April of each year.  The remaining twenty-five percent (25%) of the surplus enrollment will be distributed by May 15th of each year.  Distribution of additional surplus enrollment seats due to decline of acceptance will be done in accordance with the selection process outlined in Section VIII of this Admission Policy.

VIII.  SELECTION PROCESS

The Admission Committee at Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational School will examine, discuss and make recommendations for action on the applicants.

The Admission Committee considers scholastic achievement, attendance, school behavior, local Guidance Counselor's recommendations. Applications are reviewed, processed and assigned points by grade level.  Acceptable candidates shall be those who achieve at least a minimum “Total Rating Score” of 50 points, as determined by the Admissions Committee.

After a point total for each applicant has been determined, all applicants are placed in order of their "point total" and town of residence. School Choice applicants are placed in rank order.  Applicants are then accepted in order of the point total they have achieved until  quota is met. The applicant with the highest point total is accepted first, the applicant with the second highest point total is accepted second, and so on until all seats are filled. All applicants are accepted, declined, or placed on a waiting list. If openings occur to place a town below their quota, the seats are filled by accepting applicants from the waiting list from that town.

The distribution of surplus enrollment seats will be determined by utilizing the same enrollment ratios that determine the initial quotas.  Applicants, like those accepted earlier, are accepted in order of their place on the waiting list determined by the total points given according to the selection criteria.  Late applicant scores will be integrated in rank order and accepted in order of their place on the waiting list. 

All applicants for Grade 9 whose applications are received by Northeast Metropolitan Regional School District by March 1 are notified of their status by a letter to their parents/guardians and their local school Guidance Counselor by mid-April. Applicants whose applications are not received by Northeast by March 1st will receive a letter informing them of their status within one month of receipt of their application.

Upper class applications received by March 1st will be reviewed by May 1st after vocational openings for the next school year have been identified.  Students will be considered for their first three vocational choices as indicated on their applications.  Space availability in vocational areas will be a determining factor in selection.  Letters regarding admission status will be sent to students and parents by June 1st of each year.  In the event that there are more acceptable students than spaces available, a waiting list will be maintained.  The waiting list will be listed by career technical area and students will be listed according to point totals.

All letters of acceptance will be conditional pending submission of final grades and promotion status.  
 
IX. ENROLLMENT

In order to enroll at Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational School for the fall, applicants must have been promoted to the grade they wish to enter by their local school district. In addition, they must have passed courses in English language arts or the equivalent and mathematics for the school year immediately preceding their enrollment at Northeast. The Northeast Admissions Department will request final report cards/transcripts of all accepted students to verify promotion and passing final grades.

If accepted students fail English or math as a final grade, they must attend summer school and present a certificate that indicates they have successfully passed the failed course(s) to retain their seat.
Prior to the first day of school, in accordance with Massachusetts State Law, updated Immunization Records must be received in the Northeast Nurse’s Office for students to begin their enrollment.
 
All accepted students will be scheduled to take the Stanford 9 Achievement test for academic class placement purposes.  Testing will be offered in April/May, June, and August.  Late accepts or students who missed testing dates will be tested during school in September.  Once enrolled, all new students to Northeast will participate in the Kuder Vocational Assessment system.

X. VOCATIONAL TECHNICAL PROGRAM PLACEMENT

All ninth graders who enroll in Northeast Metro Tech High School participate in a vocational technical exploratory program designed to help them learn about their talents and interests relative to a variety of different vocational-technical programs. On their applications, students list their top 8 exploratory choices.  They are scheduled to explore each of those eight choices and seven additional vocational areas for one week through the first three terms of the school year, a total of 15 weeks of an Exploratory Program.

An evaluative rubric is used by each exploratory teacher to fairly assess all students as they rotate through the exploratory program.  Students are evaluated and scored on a 100 point scale by vocational teachers during each week in each shop placement. The scoring scale used assigns points as follows: 10-12 Poor, 13-15 Fair, 16-18 Good, 19-20 Excellent.  The students are evaluated for performance in the Related Theory and Shop areas in the following categories: Related Theory – (1) completion and performance on class assignments, tests, and/or homework; and (2) class behavior; Shop – (3) performance on shop assignments; (4) shop behavior; and (5) shop safety (demonstration of proper use of tools, instruments, materials or supplies).  Five points are deducted from the total score for each day absent.  A make-up process for the exploratory program will be available to students. 

The maximum point total for each exploratory week is 100 points.  The maximum possible point total for the exploratory program is (15 x 100) = 1500 points.  The passing grade for each exploratory week is a 65.
At the end of the fifteen-week exploratory period, each student selects his/her program of choice by rank ordering (from high interest to low interest) all of the shops they have explored where passing grades (65 or above) have been received.

The computer then sorts all student choices attempting to give each student their first choice.  The rank order of students entering each shop is based on the numerical grade earned from the exploratory week.  If a shop enrollment reaches capacity and is closed to a student, the computer attempts to assign the student to his/her second choice, third choice, etc. until placed.  If students are tied in points to enter a shop, the tie is broken by the total number of exploratory points earned throughout their entire exploratory program.  If a tie remains, the academic grade point average will be used to break the tie.
Students who wish to transfer from one shop to another during the school year may apply for transfer. Transfer requests will be considered subject to the availability of openings in the requested shops. Each transfer applicant will be interviewed and counseled individually to determine the appropriateness of the transfer for the particular student.
 
XI. REVIEW and APPEALS

Student Not Accepted into School/Placed on Waiting List
The applicant's parent(s)/guardian(s), upon receipt of a letter from Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational School indicating that the applicant was not accepted or placed on a waiting list, may request a review of the decision by sending a letter requesting a review to the Administrator of Student Services within thirty days of the receipt of the letter.
