An admission process is necessary in vocational technical schools where space is a limiting factor. Vocational agricultural laboratories (shops) are designed and equipped to serve a specific maximum number of students safely. Consequently, a complex of such laboratories lacks both the space and flexibility to accommodate the potential needs and/or interests of all applicants. Therefore, a selection process is necessary. All applicants to grades nine through twelve at Essex Agricultural and Technical High School will be evaluated using the criteria contained in this Admission Policy.
Essex Agricultural and Technical High School admits students and makes available to them its advantages, privileges and courses of study without regard to race, color, sex, gender identity, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or home status.
