I keep writing down questions that I want to keep track of for when I go in for registration…and continually keep losing the paper, or misplacing the notebook I write them in. So, I am going to keep track here whenever something pops into mind. Beginning now:
∙ How strict is the attire policy I see in the entrance material? (It says wear comfortable black pants, shorts or skirts…but no spandex or stretchy fabrics, like “Yoga pants”...that makes no sense. How is anything else comfortable?)
∙ Will I need my laptop in class?
(My son will be home with my mom while I am at class, and will be using our only laptop for homeschool sessions).
∙ Can I use an audio recording device during lectures or other important areas where information needs to be retained well?
(I have an awful problem with remembering detailed information, especially when it all comes at me so fast during an entire day. I am hoping the way this class is set up, though, that it will make it easier for my poor brain. I need to tell them that I have many ADHD and Asperger’s symptoms that can make some things a bit more difficult, but that I won’t let them hold me back if I can get a small helping hand here and there if I need it).
∙ Do I have to buy all extra items listed in the packet? Can the total price be added to my tuition fees that I will eventually pay back over time? And, what colors, if any? And, when do they have to be in by? Do I take these home with me everyday to clean them (sheets, towels and such)?
(I am so happy that I DO NOT have to buy a two-piece swimsuit from the listed items for school (they said shorts and a tank are perfectly fine…yay! This is what makes m think the list is a bit wishy-washy if that one thing is different from the list).
∙ Can I wear my black Converse as part of my attire?
(Comfortable, black shoes are listed as part of the attire, and my black Chucks are very comfy, but have the famous white bottom part. I am hoping it’s fine.)
∙ What happens if (God forbid) I can’t make it in for a class, for some unavoidable reason? Can I make that time up? Will I be punished somehow for it?
I think that is all that’s popping out at me for the moment. I’m sure the rep I am assigned to will be in awe of how many detailed questions I come prepared with, lol. I have gotten that many times in my life when I encounter a new environment; I like to know the rules and what’s what. I do not like to just see what happens and go with it. Plus, I am usually the ONLY ONE who ever gets called out for anything against any rules and regulations. I am that black sheep in the room all the time, no matter where I go in life. 1 week ago
