PUBLIC NOTICE II - AHERA:
To all area students, parents, staff, employees, and temporary workpersons entering our campus. In accordance with Federal Regulations concerning asbestos, Wes Watkins Technology Center’s board of education has employed a consultant to formulate an asbestos management plan in accordance with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA).  Asbestos is a known potential health hazard.  No Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) have been found in any of our buildings on the main campus.   Wes Watkins Technology Center is notifying the public that all its buildings are asbestos free and comply with AHERA.  A copy of the AHERA Management Plan is available for inspection at the technology center.

PUBLIC NOTICE III - DRUG FREE ENVIRONMENT:
It is the policy of the Board of Education of Wes Watkins Technology Center District 25 that all students and employees must cooperate in maintaining a drug-free environment. Students and employees, who possess, use or distribute illicit drugs, including anabolic steroids or alcohol, shall be subject to disciplinary actions.  In addition to suspension, expulsion and/or termination, students and employees are subject to referral for prosecution under applicable laws.  Any employee convicted of any criminal drug statute must notify the employer of such convictions within five days. Chemical dependency is a contagious, progressive disease that does not disappear on its own accord.  Any student or employee of the WWTC district who believes that he or she may have a problem with drug abuse may be referred to appropriate local agencies for counseling, treatment or rehabilitation.  For further information, refer to the school counselor.

PUBLIC NOTICE IV - FERPA:
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act requires that Wes Watkins Technology Center, with certain exceptions, obtain your written consent prior to the disclosure of personally identifiable information from your or your minor child’s education records.  However, the Technology Center may disclose appropriately designated “directory information” without written consent, unless you have advised the Technology Center to the contrary in accordance with Technology Center procedures.  The primary purpose of directory information is to allow the Technology Center to include this type of information from education records in certain school publications.  Examples include:

  • Recognition lists;
  • Graduation programs; and
  • Press releases.

Directory information, which is information that is generally not considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if released, can also be disclosed to outside organizations without a prior written consent.  In addition, two federal laws require local educational agencies (LEAs) receiving assistance under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) to provide military recruiters, upon request, with three directory information categories – names, addresses and telephone listings – unless parents have advised the LEA that they do not want their minor child’s information disclosed without their prior written consent. If you do not want the technology center to disclose directory information from your or your minor child’s education records without your prior written consent, you must notify the superintendent in writing.  The Technology Center has designated the following information as "directory information," and it will disclose that information without prior written consent:

  • The student's name;
  • The student's address;
  • The student's telephone listing;
  • The student's date and place of birth;
  • The student’s dates of attendance;
  • The student's grade level (i.e., 11th grade, 12th grade, etc.);
  • The student's degrees, honors and awards received;
  • The most recent educational agency or institution attended;
  • The student's photograph; and
  • The student’s electronic mail address.

PUBLIC NOTICE V - ADA:
Wes Watkins Technology Center does not discriminate on the basis of disability in the admission or access to, or treatment or employment in, its programs or activities.  WWTC has been designated to coordinate compliance with the non-discrimination requirements contained in section 35.107 of the Department of Justice regulations.  Information concerning the provisions of the American with Disabilities Act, and the rights provided thereunder, is available from the ADA coordinator.
