Effective fall 2007, all participants registered
for a course are required to attend the first day. Participants
who do not attend the first class of a course for which they are
registered, and who have not contacted the Schultz Center Registrar
to indicate their intent, will be dropped from the course. Participants
having extenuating circumstances beyond their control and who are
unable to attend the first day of a course must notify the Schultz
Center two days prior to the beginning of a course at (904) 348-5700.
Participants must start and finish all training within the time requirements. As a result, participants, who for any reason were unable to complete training and desire to return, will be remediated to the first day of the next available session. Make-up days are permitted, with prior approval from the course facilitator, within the same school year. For example, a participant unable to complete a day of training, can make-up this day of training (with the exception of day one), in another session facilitated in the same school year cycle. Participants must complete and/or attend 80% of a course and all associated coursework to receive a passing grade. Points are deducted for late arrives and early departures, as a result, please keep this in mind.
All online registrations close one week prior to the start date of the course.
For participants intending to join a course which began at an earlier date,
please call The Schultz Center Registrar. Late registration depends upon the availability of seats within
a course, the percentage of classes previously missed by the participant, and the discretion of the instructor. Please
note that late registration will not be permitted if the participant has missed more than twenty percent of the course.
Instructional Materials Policy
Instructional materials required for Schultz Center training programs will be distributed
at the first day of a training session. Participants will be responsible for the upkeep and return of the materials
at the end of the training session. The failure to return instructional materials will result in the withholding of
credit hours for course completion or require reimbursement fees for materials.
Participants, upon prior notification to their instructors, shall be excused
from a class to observe a religious holy day of their faith. Participants will be permitted a realistic
amount of time to make up the work covered in their absence and will not be penalized due to a religious observance absence.
Absences and Early Departures
A registered participantís school principal will be notified due to continual absences or early
departures from a course. School principals can track participantís attendance online and will be able to view individual
records. The Schultz Center recognizes the right to make attendance mandatory. After due warning, instructors can prohibit
further attendance and subsequently assign an incomplete or failing grade for excessive absences, habitual tardiness or early
departures. Continual early departures contribute to an overall lack of training cohesiveness.
All community education participants at the Schultz Center will be assessed a fee
for training courses. Community Education participants are defined as individuals who are not currently employed
by Duval County Public Schools (DCPS). All fees are based upon the number of training hours. Participants/Organizations
attending courses that are not currently DCPS employees but under contract with the Schultz Center and/or DCPS are not
considered Community Education Participants and will not pay fees.
Tuition payments for courses are expected in full one week prior to the start date of a course.
A participant is not considered officially registered and may not attend course sessions until fees are paid. Participants
who do not pay tuition and fees by the end of the established payment deadline will be dropped from courses. A dropped status
resulting from non-payment forbids participants to attend or receive credits for courses.
It is important for all community education participants to ensure they have an active email address
as well as a current home address to receive communication from the Schultz Center.
To avoid any and all fees, participants must drop courses one week prior to the course start date.
The Schultz Center will invoice all registered community education participants who do not pay electronically, via PayPal
or by submitting payment via mail or in person.
Participants cannot attend courses unless they are officially registered through the Schultz Center.
The official roster is provided by the Schultz Center to instructors.
