Individual Student Conferences
The Week of 12/5 and 12/19 students will sign up for individual conferences with program staff. Our sister program OTEC uses this process and it is highly beneficial to students.
- Virtual through Google Classroom/Meet. Students sign up in advance.
- Conferences include: personal time for students to meet with Oakland ACE staff to reflect on grades, upcoming finals, attendance, and goals.
- Students and staff will verify OCC second semester courses and contact information are accurate.
- During the meeting we will update three-year plans and answer any questions the students may have.
- A summary of the meeting will be shared with the student, parent, and enrolling district counselor.
Winter Semester Canceled Classes
OCC may cancel classes leading up to the beginning of Winter Semester. Students should check their MYOCC and email which is how you will know if classes are canceled. Professors sometimes notify students via email about cancellations. Students who want assistance choosing replacement classes should contact Dr. McKay via email. Students may choose to make appointments with OCC Counseling Staff. Students who are able to make course selections without assistance should complete the OCC Registration Adjustment form and email to Dr. McKay.
My Safety: OCC's system to report behavior misconduct or sexual harassment (Title IX). Students and families are not required to inform Oakland ACE staff if you file a complaint. However, we are more than happy to support you during the process if you file a complaint.
Emergency Alert System: OCC's system used to notify of campus closures or other emergencies. Any information received from this system supersedes Oakland ACE staff communications. For example, if you get a Remind message that your campus is closed due to inclement weather but seminar was scheduled for the day of the closure then adhere to the OCC directive.
