Code of Conduct
Leaving our school's campus for these activities is a privilege, not a right, and therefore should be taken seriously. When we leave our campus, we become Ambassadors of Voyager Academy High School. Any student who cannot behave in a way that represents Voyager well will not be allowed to continue participating in the Research Triangle Service Immersion experience.
See the Code of Conduct document below for specifics. Of course it is our hope that we will not even come close to needing to enforce any of this, but with so many students on this trip, and tight schedules to keep, we cannot afford to spend time and energy on discipline--we expect students to represent Voyager well. The Code of Conduct will need to be signed by both Student and Parent and handed in by Monday, March 21 for students to be able to participate in this Service Immersion experience.
Transport Permission Slip
As was stated in the Service Immersion Catalog at the beginning of the year, our Immersion Experience sadly does not offer any transportation. Therefore, the responsibility of getting students to and from each University each day does fall on the family and the students.
Ideally this potential problem is solved by having lots of parents join us as we tour and serve at these campuses. Visiting colleges with your child is a meaningful experience, and ultimately more helpful than them visiting alone as you plan for the future. So please parents, join us!
So some students will be transported each day by parents that will stay with us, some will be dropped off, others are able to drive themselves, and others might get their parents' permission to be transported by another student. Obviously this could get confusing, so we will insist on each student having the following Transport Permission Slip completed and signed by a parent in 8 places :) (one signature for each transit, to help accomidate for students with variable transit plans). This sheet will need to be turned in to Mr. Baker or Mr. Borosky by Monday, March 21 for students to be able to attend and partisipate in this Service Immersion.
Ask to visit (sit in) classes at Duke
Click on the link below to search Duke's course offerings on Wednesdays, between 12:30-3:30 p.m. (Make sure you're in "Spring Semester 2016.") Once you've found a class or two you're interested in between 12:30-3:30, locate the instructor name and copy it or write it down. Then search for the instructor in the directory to find their email. Last, you'll want to email the instructor briefly introducing yourself and asking to attend their class that day (you'll want to confirm the time and location--building and room number--of the class as well). This process is a little involved, but it's worth it to sit in on classes you actually care about.
