ADVANCE PLACEMENT

PROGRAM

_________________

Solon High School’s Advanced Placement program is an opportunity for students to pursue college-level studies while still in secondary school. Through this program they may earn credit, advanced placement, or both, for college. Students who take AP courses learn a subject in depth, develop analytical reasoning skills, and form disciplined study habits that can contribute to continued success at the college level.

POST SECONDARY

ENROLLMENT OPTIONS

(PSEO)

_________________

This program has been established to permit high school students to take coursework at the high school and at a local college simultaneously. The program is intended to provide expanded opportunities for appropriately qualified high school students to experience coursework at the college or university level.

Credit Flexibility

_____________________________

For students to earn units of high school credit based on the demonstration of subject area competency. In addition to raising the expectations for

graduation, lawmakers provided flexibility to students and educators to successfully meet these higher expectations.

Flexibility Plan shifts

focus from evaluating student learning based on seat time to assessing students’ demonstrated academic and skill level or performance. The plan does not eliminate Carnegie units or “seat

time” requirements altogether. Rather, it retains seat time as one option and expands the number of options for earning credit by adding demonstration of subject area competency and structures.

COLLEGE SUMMER PROGRAMMING

allows qualifying students to take college coursework during the summer.

B

HONORS PROGRAM

Honors classes provide students with a more well-rounded education. They allow teachers the flexibility of going into depth in some areas, and of having students engage in growth activities – research, discussion, debate, group work, presentation, public speaking exercises, role plays and simulations, etc. AP classes don’t allow for as many of these things, as teachers must cover a greater amount of material.

POST SECONDARY ENROLLMENT OPTIONS

POTENTIAL RISKS & CONSEQUENCES

  • INCREASED RESPONSIBILITY FOR LEARNING:
  • Such work is more demanding that normal high school coursework, either in pace, content, or both. In a collegiate environment there is less support and structure provided for students. Also, the inconsistency among college curricula could affect the quality of instruction that students receive.
  • REDUCED OPPORTUNITIES FOR PARTICIPATION IN HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES/ATHLETICS:
  • Students may miss the many social, academic, sport and fine arts activities available to them on the high school campus. Also, athletic eligibility might be affected for students under Option B.
  • INCREASED FAMILY FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS FOR EDUCATION:
  • Option A (i.e. tuition, fees, books, materials,inability to work)
potential risks consequences

POST SECONDARY ENROLLMENT OPTIONS

POTENTIAL RISKS & CONSEQUENCES
  • POSSIBLE EFFECT ON GPA AND CLASS STANDING:

The difference in academic competition among students in high school vs. college may have a negative effect on the high school student’s grade point average or college grade point average. Also, under Option B, the consequences of failing or not completing a required course might adversely affect the student’s ability to graduate with his /her class.

  • Failing a course or failure to complete the course, whether through formal “class drop” process or non-attendance, will result in any or all financial obligation for that course defaulting to the student and his/her parents. Student withdrawing from college classes will be subject to the rescheduling of a normal class load of 5 credits, and a “WD or “WF” will also be noted on the Solon High School transcript for dropped courses.
    • INCREASED TIME FOR TRAVEL:
  • Driving to and from the college, increased study requirements for college level courses, etc.
