The mission of Pike-Lincoln Tech Center is to prepare each student in the proper skills and attitudes necessary for success in his/her chosen field. Employers consider regular attendance as the first step in becoming a successful employee. Because of this expectation, Pike-Lincoln Tech Center maintains an expectation similar to that of business and industry. Therefore, students are expected to maintain an attendance rate of 90% or better.
The achievement attained by any student is directly related to his/her attendance. It is extremely difficult to duplicate the instructions missed due to absences from class. In the case of high school students, missing one day of class at Pike-Lincoln is like missing 3 days at their high school due to the extended class length at Pike-Lincoln.

Pike-Lincoln has staff available to meet with area youth to determine if they are eligible. Some of the services available are tuition assistance, on-the-job training, resume assistance, basic employment skills training and referral services.
