  28. “Building a bridge to success for every student through unified efforts” Mission Statement

  30. MINIMUM GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

  31. Fine Arts • Humanities • Math and Science • Advanced Placement • Dual Enrollment • Exercise/Safety • Engineering • Marketing • Business Management • Architecture Construction • Finance • Health Science • Information Technology • Media/Communications • Human Services • Law Enforcement Elective Focus Areas

  32. Opportunity to earn 8 credits • Classes worth 1 credit • Twenty-eight (28) credits required for graduation • Courses failed = no credit, must be retaken if required for graduation • Must meet both academic and attendance requirements to earn a course credit 9th Grade Credits

  33. Credit for each course taught at MJHS/MHS is based on the Carnegie Unit. • One unit is earned for the successful completion of one term of study in one course. • One-half unit is earned for the successful completion of one semester of study in one course. • A term at MJHS is one academic year (2 semesters) and is eighteen weeks in length at MHS. • A semester at MJHS is eighteen weeks (2 quarters) and a semester is nine weeks in length at MHS. • Exceptions include classes on an A/B schedule. UNIT OF CREDIT

  34. MJHS uses letter grades (A, B, C, D, F, P) to report student progress. Plus/minus may be added to the letter grade as an incentive/warning. The plus/minus will appear on the student’s record, but will have no quality point value when computing the GPA. • Grades reflect the level of mastery on course specific curriculum standards. To calculate the Grade Point Average (GPA) add up all of the quality points for the courses taken and divide by the total number of credits that have been earned. Q1(37.5%) + Q2(37.5) + Sem. Ex (25%) = S1 S1(50%)+S2(50%)=Final Grade Q3(37.5%) + Q4(37.5%) + TCAP or Course Exam (25%) = S2 Grades

  35. First (1st) Semester Exams will compose 25% of first semester average • As per the State of Tennessee, state issued End-of-Course (EOC) exams will compose 25% of second semester average in the subject areas of English 1, Algebra 1, and Biology. • Courses without State Mandated assessments will issue course generated EOC exams that will compose 25% of the second semester average. • Course specific benchmark assessments will be given to assess student academic growth over the course of the school year. REQUIRED ASSESSMENTS

  36. According to School Board Policy –to receive credit for passing any grade or course students must attend 90% of class time • Decreased flexibility regarding Prior Approvals • MJHS attendance policy requires students with excessive absences to complete time-for-time School Attendance

  37. There is no perfect formula for determining the proper amount of academic study for each student. It is not unreasonable to expect a student to routinely have academic study each night and some weekends. • When completing projects, papers, and/or preparing for examinations; the amount of academic study may become significant for brief periods. • The time required for completion of academic study will vary with student ability, class schedule, and proper budgeting of time. • Students can expect to spend two hours each night of the five (5) day school week and on some weekends completing academic study. • Students enrolled in advanced classes may experience an increased academic study workload. • Due dates for academic work and deadlines and the issuance of partial credit for late work will be determined by the individual teacher, department, or instructional team Academic Study Time

  44. The master schedule is made on the basis of student course requests received during the spring registration. • Normally, scheduling all student course requests is possible. Should unavoidable conflicts arise, students will be given an alternative requests. • Schedules will be adjusted within the first five (10) days of the fall semester for students who are misplaced in a course. A schedule change request form will be available in the school counseling office. • Changes in level can only take place prior to the end of the first quarter (1st 9 weeks) of the term through a collaborative process to include the student, parent and teacher. • After that time, level changes will only take place through a collaborative process with administrative approval following a student/parent/teacher/school counselor conference with or without administrative presence at a minimum.
