It is most beneficial to encourage your child to take the lead in getting to know his or her Counselor early in the first semester of their Early College career. That same counselor will assist your child throughout their tenure at Martin Luther King, Jr. Early College. Counselors can assist with anything from course selection to middle school to high school transition, to college preparation and college visits and more. If you don’t know your student’s counselor, contact the Counseling Center.

You will be notified of the class absence by the automated attendance system, either by phone, email or both. You can also check attendance on Parent Portal. The main office or the Discipline Team can answer any questions you have regarding attendance.
