  • Should we adjust attendance to match the semester or keep it simply stated?
  • Should we include a strong recommendation of taking a Tech credit aka BIM? And include how it is a skill they will need and an entry level course to many of the career clusters?
  • PE from Work Co-Op? They cannot earn it next year correct?
  • Why is this here? Won’t these take care of themselves?
  • Why is this here? Are these classes still accurate?
  • Remove the CTE PE/Health Bullet?

  • Touch System Data Entry = Old Keyboarding-only for those with ZERO computer experience or very low.
    Business Information Management = Old BCIS-try to place most students in this class
    Computer Aps is gone embedded in Principles of IT/ET
    ** How do we want to plug the BIM to assure that we get a lot of enrollment?

    1. 1. Preparing for High School Guyer High School Denton High School Ryan High School
    2. 2. Terminology q Block – a scheduled class q A-B Schedule – alternating days of 4 classes per day: 90 minutes per block q Double Block Schedule – one course that either takes one block each day or two blocks in one day. q Single Block – courses that meet only once every other day. Most classes are single blocked.
    3. 3. Terminology q Credits –earned by semester – every class each semester receives ½ credit for passing grades and acceptable attendance. You must earn credit in each semester of a year long course. Attendance: 5 or more unverified absences can equal loss of credit even with passing grades. q Required – courses that the state/district mandate for graduation credits (note BOTH semesters of same course must be completed for credits to be awarded) q Core Subjects – English, Math, Science, Social Studies (4 x 4) q Elective Course – courses that are not specified as a required course q Alternate Courses - must be selected in case requested classes are full or will not work with your schedule q Pre-requisite – a course required before taking another course q Waiver – credit received from other class participation
    4. 4. Grade Point Average (GPA) and Rank GPA and Rank are calculated on a 4-point scale with a 1-point bonus for Pre-AP (Honors) Classes, AP (Honors) Classes, and Dual Enrollment College Courses. Only 18 (36 semesters) academic foundation courses are used in the final calculation. (English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and World Language Courses) Only courses taken at the high school campus or by dual credit count toward GPA. A list of these courses and GPA calculations can be found in the Course Catalog. Students MAY NOT graduate in the top 10% or receive honors in graduating class unless they are candidates for the Distinguished Achievement Plan including the four advanced measures (DAP) requirements.
    5. 5. Two Graduation Plans Recommended Plan Distinguished Achievement Plan
    6. 6. RECOMMENDED PLAN • 4 years English • 4 years Math on high school campus (Algebra I, Geometry, Math Models, Algebra II, Advanced Mathematical Decision Making, Pre-Calculus, AP Stat, AP Calculus) • 4 years Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, TBD) • 4 years Social Studies • 1 year Physical Education or P.E. Substitute • ½ year Communication Applications or Professional Communications (Speech) • 2 years same Foreign Language (2 years taken at high school campus count toward GPA, so if you take only 1 year in high school, only those 2 semesters of the possible 4 will be averaged into your GPA) • 1 year Fine Arts (2 semesters of same course) • 5 ½ credits of electives Total 26 Credits
    7. 7. Distinguished Achievement Plan (DAP) • Same as Recommended Plan but add 3rd year of Foreign Language and four (4) additional advanced measures on the next slide
    8. 8. Advanced Measures Include: • AP Courses (and satisfactory grade on AP exam) • National Merit Scholarship Finalist • Researched based project • Dual Credit University Courses (with a “B” or higher grade) • Tech Prepped CTE Courses (with a “B” or higher grade)
