Transfer of Credit Hours Policy

It is the policy of the school to grant credit for hours spent in Beauty Culture Training at another approved school. However, the New Jersey State Board of Cosmetology & Hairstyling specifically states that a school accepting transfer students can test him/her to determine the actual number of credit hours to be given. The school will inform the Board of Cosmetology & Hairstyling the exact number of hours to be credited the student. Transfer hours accepted by the Board will be counted as completed hours.

Drug Free Prevention Program

Robert Fiance Beauty Schools Drug Free Prevention Program
Download Your Copy

This is to inform you of the requirements of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989, Public Law 101-226 and what Robert Fiance Beauty Schools requires of the Staff and Students.

Staff and Students are prohibited from the unlawful manufacture, distribution, possession or use of illicit drugs or alcohol. This prohibition applies while on the property of the school or participating in any institutional activity, Students or employees who violate this policy will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including expulsion or termination from employment.

There are numerous legal sanctions under local, state and federal laws which can be used to punish violators. Penalties can range from suspension, revocation and denial of a driver’s license to 20-50 years imprisonment at hard labor without benefit of parole. Property may be seized. Community service may be mandated. Examples of penalties found in federal law for drug trafficking are included (Appendix A)

Recent federal anti-drug laws affect a number of areas in everyone’s lives. Students could lose eligibility for financial aid, could be denied of other federal benefits such as Social Security, retirement, welfare, health, disability and veterans benefits. The Department of Housing and Urban Development, which provides funds to states and communities for public housing, has the authority to evict residents and members of their household who are involved with drug-related crimes on or near the public housing premises. Businesses could lose federal contracts if the company does not promote a drug-free environment. Finally, a record of a felony or conviction in a drug-related crime may prevent a person from entering certain careers.

The laws of the state of New Jersey are adequate to protect the innocent, but stringent enough to insure that persons involved with the illegal dealing of drugs or excessive use of alcohol can be adequately punished. For example: a small amount of drugs found on a person may lead to an arrest which could require the person to make payment of all court costs as well as participate in mandatory community service. A person found with drugs with the intention to distribute could be imprisoned. A person found to be intoxicated while driving could be forced to pay court costs, lawyer’s fees, participate in community service, receive an increase in automobile insurance or even lose their driver’s license and end up in prison.

In addition to local and state authorities, the federal government has four agencies employing approximately 52,500 personal engaged in fighting illicit drugs. These agencies are: The Drug Enforcement Agency, US Customs Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation and the US Coast Guard.

Here are a few legal facts of which you should be aware of: It is a crime to hold someone else’s drugs. It is a crime to sell fake drugs. You can be arrested if you are in a house (or school) where people are using drugs, even though you are not. You can be charged with possession of drugs even if it is not on you. You are considered to possess, under legal terms of “constructive possession”, drugs that are in your locker, purse, car or house.

Drug abuse is the utilization of natural and/or synthetic chemical substances for non-medical reasons to affect the body and its processes, the mind and nervous system and behavior. The abuse of drugs can affect a person’s physical and emotional health and social life. Alcohol is the most abused drug in the United States.

Drugs can be highly addictive and injurious to the body as well as one’s self. People tend to lose their sense of responsibility and coordination. Restlessness, irritability, anxiety, paranoia, depression, acting slow moving, inattentiveness, loss of appetite, sexual indifference, comas, convulsions or even death can result from overuse or abuse of drugs. Not only does the person using the drug subject himself to all sorts of health risks, drug use can and, in many instances do, cause grief and discomfort to innocent people. A drug-dulled brain, for example, affects a wide range of skills needed for safe driving, such as thinking. Further, reflexes are slowed, making it hard for drivers to respond to sudden, unexpected events. Alcohol related highway deaths are the top killer of 15-24 year olds. A description of controlled substances and their effects is included. (Appendix B)

There are drug and alcohol counseling, treatment and rehabilitation facilities available in our area where you can seek advice and treatment. The Yellow Pages of the local telephone book is an excellent source as well as the internet. You may contact any of the following agencies below for assistance and referral to treatment centers nearest you.

Alcohol Treatment Referral Hotline: 1-800-ALCOHOL

Provides help and referrals for people with concerns about drug or alcohol use 24/7

Cocaine Hotline: 1-800-COCAINE

Provides treatment referrals and some drug information 24/7

Center for Substance Abuse Treatment: 1-800-662-HELP

National Drug and Alcohol Treatment Referral Service can link the caller to a variety of hotlines that provide treatment referrals 24/7

National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence: 1-800-622-2255

Will refer the caller to a local affiliate office 24/7

You may want to contact any of the above agencies listed above to discuss the treatment you seek and/or request a local referral to a treatment center.

Dependency upon drugs can only lead to a life of misery and misfortune. The illegal use or abuse of drugs have a very high impact on our society and the type of crimes committed. To support a drug habit, people must resort to many things which can only lead to a life of horror and in some instances, death.

The dollar cost can range from $200.00 to $2,000.00 per week to support a habit. More importantly, the drug habit impacts a person’s family, lifestyle and career prospects as well as one’s physical well being and self-respect.

Treatment is available and may be expensive. For example, a typical live-in program lasting 4 weeks can cost from $5,000.00 to $15,000.00. Out-patient programs cost from $1,000.00 to $5,000.00. Who pays for these treatments? There may be programs which cover the costs. One way or another, the person and the tax-payer pays!!! It has been proven that an individual “hooked” cannot just stop, but requires professional care to kick the habit.

There are classic danger signals that could indicate the first sign of drug use. The primary ones that could call attention to one’s use are:

√ Abrupt changes in mood or attitude

√ Continuing slump at work or school

√ Continuing resistance to discipline at work or school

√ Cannot get along with family or friends

√ Unusual temper or flare-ups

√ Increased borrowing of money

√ Heightened secrecy

√ A complete new set of friends

We recommend that any person observing any of the above changes in either staff or students immediately notify the School’s Supervisor or the Director’s Office. Caution must be observed not to wrongly accuse a person suspected of taking drugs as an improper accusation could lead to embarrassment both to the individual and the school.

Once it has been determined by management that assistance to overcome a drug problem is necessary, the individual and his/her family should be counseled on the need for assistance. Records must be maintained of any counseling provided to the individual. There are clinics in the school’s vicinity which can render assistance. Treatment must be an expense borne by the patient. The school can only offer advice in a limited manner. If the individual is in immediate danger of harming either him/herself or others, local law authorities should be immediately contacted.

Staff and Students who violate these standards of conduct subject themselves to disciplinary action. Students are reminded that as a precondition to accepting a Pell Grant that they sign a certificate stating that they would not engage in the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession or use of a controlled substance during the period covered by the Pell Grant. A Pell Grant recipient convicted of a criminal drug offence resulting from a violation occurring during the period of enrollment covered by the Pell Grant must report the conviction in writing, within 10 days of the conviction, to the Director, Grants and Contracts Service, US Department of Education 400 Maryland Avenue, S.S. Room 3073, FOB-6 Washington, DC 20202-4571. Failure to report the conviction should lead to LS&T or debarment.

The Staff, upon being hired by the Robert Fiance Beauty Schools, receive a briefing and acknowledge in writing that they understand the provisions of the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988. Employees must notify the Directors Office, in writing, of a conviction of a criminal drug statute occurring in the workplace, within 5 days after receiving the conviction.

Disciplinary action will take place within 30 days of notification, and can range from a letter of admonishment, suspension from school or work, and/or enrollment in a rehabilitation program to termination from either school or employment.

Health Risks Associated with Alcohol

Alcohol consumption causes a number of marked changes in behavior. Even low doses significantly impair the judgment and coordination required to drive a car safely, increasing the likelihood that the driver will be involved in a car accident. Low to moderate doses of alcohol also increases the incidence of a variety of aggressive acts, including spouse and child abuse. Moderate to high doses of alcohol cause marked impairments in higher mental functions, severely altering a person’s ability to learn and remember information. Very high doses cause respiratory depression and death. If combined with other depressants of the central nervous system, much lower doses of alcohol will produce the effects just described.

Repeated use of alcohol can lead to dependence. Sudden cessation of alcohol intake is likely to produce withdrawal symptoms, including severe anxiety, tremors, hallucinations and convolutions. Alcohol withdrawal can be life threatening. Long term consumption of large quantities of alcohol, particularly when combined with poor nutrition, can also lead to permanent damage to vital organs such as the brain and liver.

Mothers who drink alcohol during pregnancy may give birth to infants with fetal alcohol syndrome. These infants have irreversible physical abnormalities and mental retardation. In addition, research indicates that children of alcoholic parents are at a greater risk than other youngsters of becoming alcoholics.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children’s education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are “eligible students.”

[*] Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student’s education records maintained by the school. Schools are not required to provide copies of records unless, for reasons such as great distance, it is impossible for parents or eligible students to review the records. Schools may charge a fee for copies.
[*] Parents or eligible students have the right to request that a school correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student then has the right to a formal hearing. After the hearing, if the school still decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement with the record setting forth his or her view about the contested information.
[*] Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student’s education record. However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions (34 CFR § 99.31):
[*] School officials with legitimate educational interest;
[*] Other schools to which a student is transferring;
[*] Specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes;
[*] Appropriate parties in connection with financial aid to a student;
[*] Organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of the school;
[*] Accrediting organizations;
[*] To comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena;
[*] Appropriate officials in cases of health and safety emergencies; and
[*] State and local authorities, within a juvenile justice system, pursuant to specific State law.

Schools may disclose, without consent, “directory” information such as a student’s name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance. However, schools must tell parents and eligible students about directory information and allow parents and eligible students a reasonable amount of time to request that the school not disclose directory information about them. Schools must notify parents and eligible students annually of their rights under FERPA. The actual means of notification (special letter, inclusion in a PTA bulletin, student handbook, or newspaper article) is left to the discretion of each school.

SAP Policy

SAP Policy

Satisfactory Progress Policy / SAP Policy

Determination of Progress: Satisfactory Progress in both attendance and academic work is a requirement for all students enrolled at the school. Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Evaluations will be conducted when a student reaches their program’s present checkpoints. Evaluations will measure performance in both academics, based on grades received, and attendance, based on the percentage of cumulative actual hours to scheduled hours.

The institutional satisfactory progress policy detailed below, applies to ALL STUDENTS. All Students receive printed satisfactory academic progress (SAP) reports at each evaluation and are counseled accordingly if necessary.

In order for a student to establish Satisfactory Progress, he or she must maintain a 75% cumulative grade point average in a academic work and a minimum of 66.67% cumulative attendance. Students that meet the minimum requirements at evaluation will be considered making Satisfactory Progress until their next scheduled evaluation.

Academic Progress: SAP Evaluations at each checkpoint will determine if the student’s cumulative GPA meets a minimum of 75% and is completing the prescribed theory and practical assignments within the attendance standards specified. Each student’s progress is periodically reviewed by both written and practical examinations scored on the following grade system:

  • EXCELLENT (A+) 90-100%
  • VERY GOOD (A) 85-89%
  • GOOD (B) 79-84%
  • PASSING (C) 75-78%
  • FAILING (D) Below 74%

Attendance Progress: SAP Evaluations at each checkpoint will determine if the total hours physically completed meets a minimum of 66.67% of the students scheduled hours and that the student will complete the program within the maximum timeframe. Percentage is based on successfully completed hours divided by the number of scheduled hours at the point of evaluation.

Maximum Time Frame: Students should complete the required clock hours within the normal time frame given for each program schedule. However, if the course is not completed within the maximum time frame allowed, termination will occur. If a student chooses to continue, he or she must re-enroll for the remaining hours needed to complete the course at the current hourly rate. The maximum time frame from is defined as 150% of the published length of the course. For example, a full time cosmetology student enrolled in the 1200 course must complete the course by a maximum by 1800 scheduled hours.

The maximum time from and contract period are extended by any approved leave of absence by the same number of days in the leave of absence.

SAP Evaluations

450 Actual Hours………..Maximum 675 scheduled hours allowed

900 Actual Hours………..Maximum 1350 scheduled hours allowed

Student Right To Appeal Unsatisfactory Determination and Re-Establish Satisfactory Progress

If a student is not making SAP at any one evaluation period, he/she will be issued a warning. During this period he/she will be considered satisfactory until the next evaluation. Students failing two consecutive SAP evaluations will be placed on probation, determined as not making satisfactory progress AND subject to termination.

Any student who has failed to meet satisfactory progress may appeal this determination in an attempt to re-establish Satisfactory Progress at the beginning of the probation period. If the school determines that satisfactory progress determination can be met by the end of the subsequent evaluation period, the student must submit a Request for Re-Evaluation along with any supporting evidence of any mitigating circumstances and explanation / documentation as to why the student failed to make satisfactory progress. In addition, an explanation as to what has changed in the students situation that will allow him or her to meet satisfactory progress at the next evaluation period and any mitigating circumstances, or documentation requested by the school director.

The School Director will review the students case and requested documentation with the student and faculty members, and a meeting will be scheduled with the student, parents/guardians (if the student is a dependent minor) the student’s instructor, and any other staff deemed necessary to make a fair determination.

If through the appeal process, evidence is shown that the school has made an error in hours recorded, or missing grade points due to the students mitigating circumstances that they may be considered satisfactory, the decision to mark the student as Satisfactory will be recorded in the Student’s file.

The Directors decision will be based on:

Mitigating circumstances leading to the failure.

Mitigating circumstances taken into consideration may include, but are not limited to:

  • Economic Hardship
  • Child Care
  • Transportation
  • Health Reasons
  • Death or Illness of Family Member
  • Housing/Shelter
  • Marital Problems

The potential of the student to benefit from the training.

The students ability to meet the monetary obligations due to the school.

Strength of the documentation requested by the School Director.

A student who does not achieve the minimum standards is no longer eligible for Title IV, HEA program funds, if applicable, unless the student is on warning or has prevailed upon appeal of the determination that has resulted in the status of probation

Many of our students have a delay in their graduation date due to child care issues, illness (allowable absent hours), family responsibilities, etc. and are not included in our On Time Graduation Rate. Based on the US Department of Education’s expectations we may only include those students that have graduated on their “contracted graduation date” hence students that graduated one day after their contracted graduation date are not included in our On Time Graduation Rates.
