Extra Help Schedule
Teachers will be available after school according to the following schedule:
||Home and Career/Tech Ed
Since each student planned a program in March of the last school year with college or career-oriented goals in mind, few program changes should be necessary. Students, once again, are encouraged to make use of the guidance services, but they must keep in mind that a mature person accepts the consequences of his or her decisions. All students must be fully scheduled (7.0 credits). Students requiring a change in their program may fill out the Program Change Form with guidance and wait for an approval. If a student is transferred to another class during a marking period, the grade will be determined by a combination of the grade of both classes if the courses are in the same discipline. If they are not in the same discipline they will receive proportional credit for the amount of time spent in the new course, i.e., ¼, ½, ¾ credit. The grade will be determined by the new course teacher. All program changes for full-year courses must take place with the first two weeks of school.
Students sign up for conferences through their counselors. The Counseling office issues passes. Conferences are ordinarily set up during directed study or homeroom period. If a conflict occurs with an academic period, the student may only be released with the subject teacher's approval.
Seniors, especially, are encouraged to check the daily bulletin frequently for announcements about financial assistance and scholarships. It will be to your financial advantage also to check with your counselor and the guidance office secretary. Various scholarships are made available each year for our students. Students may check for scholarships before and after school and during all three lunches.
Each spring juniors have the opportunity to request evaluations from three teachers. These recommendations are sent to colleges and employers along with the school transcript. Students should be sure to review their Teacher Evaluations through an appointment with their counselor.
Final determination is made at the end of the first semester of the senior year. A grade point average (GPA) from 3.25 to 3.49 earns Cum Laude; from 3.50 to 3.74 earns Magna Cum Laude; and from 3.75 to 4.00 earns Summa Cum Laude. Procedure follows NASSP guidelines. See Grade Point Average (GPA).
A GPA-based honor roll eligibility standard provides consistency for student selection at the high school level. The GPA-based honor roll eligibility standard takes into consideration the weight variation of courses such as honors and advance placement and simplify the honor roll determination process for both parents and students. Maximum Academic Honors are given to students who earn a GPA of 4.00 or above; First Honors are given to students who earn a GPA between 3.67‑3.999; and Second Honors are given to students who earn a GPA between 3.33‑3.669, and Third Honors are given to students who earn a GPA between 3.0 – 3.329.
