Frequently Asked Questions
1. What does my child need to purchase for the start of school?
For program requirements, visit our website - nmtcc.org and the “programs” tab. Select your child’s program for further details.
2. How do I find out about a bus schedule?
Transportation is provided by the sending schools. Please contact your sending school for more information.
3. Where do I complete the beginning of school forms?
Parents, please log into your Parent Portal account to acknowledge and accept all NMTCC policies outlined in the 2021-2022 Student Handbook. If you do not have a Parent Portal Account, please visit www.nmtcc.org and click on the Parent Portal link at the top of our website OR you and your child must sign the forms on page 35 of the student handbook and return it to their teacher. By either visiting the Parent Portal and checking the Student Handbook receipt box or signing the form, you and your child are verifying receipt of a handbook and acknowledging your understanding of our policies and procedures as outlined within the handbook. A publicity refusal form and military release form are also included in the summer mailing. Please review and return the signed form (s) if applicable.
4. How are we notified about snow days or unexpected school closures?
Five sending districts transport students to North Montco. Each district handles snow days differently. Students are to follow their sending school schedule. North Montco places notices about school closures on their website and social media accounts, but does not call parents due to each sending school handling snow days differently.
5. How does my child obtain a parking pass?
There is a $75.00 fee this year for each student parking pass. Students and parents are required to complete both sides of the student parking pass application and clearly print accurate information on the application. Turn in the completed application with the $75.00 fee (cash or check) to NMTCC security department. The application will be processed and the student will receive the current parking pass sticker, which security staff will affix to the vehicle assigned. Receipts for parking pass fees will be issued upon request.
6. Why doesn’t the North Montco calendar match my district calendar?
North Montco’s calendar is based on the calendar of five sending districts. Since each district handles its own calendar, we may be open or closed when your sending school isn’t.
7. What is the first day of school for North Montco?
The first student day at North Montco is Monday, August 30. Check with your sending school for your first day. Your first day of school is when your district transportation to NMTCC begins. PYAP 11th grade students start Wednesday, September 1 because they are working on August 31. Note: Cosmetology 11th-grade students begin Tuesday, August 31.
