Essential Skills



Application Status

Please contact Career Specialist Laura Domet at regarding any questions or concerns about the following:

  • Acceptance to Diamond Oaks (this is dependent on students maintaining an “on track for graduation” status)
  • Checking on current status
  • Switching programs
  • Changes to acceptance status

Absence from School

  • Students must follow Diamond Oaks’ calendar – NOT their home school calendar
  • Students are expected to be present during the entire school day 7:50 AM – 2:18 PM
  • Parents/guardians are to report absences by 8:30 AM
  • Should more than 10 absences occur, a doctor’s note or court note is required for the absence to be excused
  • Consequences will be given for excessive tardies and/or unexcused absences
  • Instructors may require missed hours to be made up. Work missed from an unexcused absence may receive a penalty or not be graded


Building Security

Student safety is a priority. Doors to the school are locked during the school day and after school; visitors must show ID at the front desk upon entering the building.  Each campus has a full-time School Resource Officer who is a member of our local law enforcement agency, and cameras throughout the building are monitored during the school day for everyone’s protection.
