Cosmetology Kit fee Parent letter 2017-18

May 17, 2017

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 I want to welcome your student to the cosmetology program.  Your students’ career choice begins now!!

 This letter is to explain several important things:This multifaceted course provides challenging occupations by which to become gainfully employed. Each aspect is dynamic and exciting to pursue. The State Board of Cosmetology establishes a minimum number of fifteen hundred hours of training and candidates must pass the State Board of Cosmetology Examination to become licensed. The cosmetology skills inspire and motivate the expression of creativity through diligent study and ardent practice. Instruction is designed to train and prepare students to qualify for license upon completion of the course requirements
Your student has the ability to receive approximately 400-600 of these hours while in High School. This will cut their post secondary training fees (this course costs approximately $12,000.00-18,000.00) and allow them to begin the cosmetology training they will need to become successful cosmetologist in the future.
 There is a mandatory cosmetology kit and manikin fee associated with this program. The fee is $250.00 and must be paid in full by September 1st.  This kit will be used during all three –years of the program. You may send cash, money order or personal check made payable to MCHS (please include a working phone number on all checks). Because this class is an elective, there is no applicable fee waiver that can be applied to the cost of the cosmetology kit.
 Course sequencing:  10th Grade=Principles of Cosmetology – 1 credit, 11th Grade=Design Principles of Cosmetology 1 credit, 12th Grade=Chemistry of Cosmetology 2 credits. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for supporting your student while training to become a licensed cosmetologist.
