scheduling instructions
Scheduling Instructions:

1. Read the 2013-2014 Program of Studies to be sure you

and your family understand the requirements for

graduation, the various course offerings, and the

prerequisites/content of the courses.

2. Discuss your course selections with your parents and/or

guardians.

3. Complete the 2013-2014 Freshman Schedule Request

Form.

4. Complete your 4 year plan (page 41 of the 2013-2014

Program of Studies).

schedule change policy
Schedule Change Policy:
  • Any requests for schedule changes initiated by students or parents/guardians MUST be accomplished by JUNE 1, 2013.
  • After JUNE 1, schedule change requests are ONLY considered due to a critical situation or misplacement. This is reviewed by principal on a case by case basis.
  • Failing is NOT an automatic indication of misplacement. A student’s work ethic and motivation are critical components to overall educational success.
  • Schedules will NOT be changed for social reasons or for requesting teachers.
student s responsibility in scheduling
Student’s Responsibility in Scheduling:
  • Investigate the courses. Students should speak with teachers, counselors, and fellow students about the courses prior to enrolling This will help you understand what the courses will be like.
  • Ensure that you are not overloading yourself or registering for inappropriate courses.
  • Make certain to consider the workload for the ENTIRE schedule.
  • Discuss your plans with your parents/guardians.
  • Direct any questions or concerns to your Tippecanoe High School Guidance Counselor prior to the June 1, 2013 schedule change deadline.
student academic course load
Student Academic Course Load:
  • Students are required to schedule at least 6 courses each semester for grades 9 through 11.
  • Under no circumstances may a student take more than 1 studyhall per semester for grades 9 through 11.
  • 12th grade students (Seniors) are required to schedule at least 5 courses each semester.
  • Senior students are allowed the maximum of 2 studyhalls per semester with Senior Option serving as one.
  • Important: Athletes beware of athletic eligibility. You must pass 5 classes (based on quarter grades) not counting Physical Education as one of those courses.
credits needed for grade level status
Credits Needed For Grade Level Status:

10th grade (Sophomore) status: 5 credits obtained during 9th grade school year

11th grade (Junior) status: 10 credits obtained during 9th and 10th grade school years

12th grade (Senior) status: 16 credits obtained during the 9th, 10th, and 11th grade school years

Graduation: at least 21 credits

  • Credits are obtained by successfully passing (grade of D or higher) the course for the semester.
  • If a REQUIRED course is not successfully passed for the semester (grade of F), that specific semester of the REQUIRED course must be taken until successfully completed (grade of D or higher).
  • Students are promoted/retained by the total number of credits he/she receives in high school - NOT by the number of years he/she attends.
alternate physical education option
Alternate Physical Education Option:
  • A student may meet the requirements of two (2) semesters of Physical Education by participating in and completing two (2) full seasons of sports, cheerleading and/or marching band. To be awarded a complete full season of a sport or cheerleading, a student must participate in at least 90% of ALL the season’s activity during the assigned OHSAA season. To be awarded a complete full season of marching band, the student must participate in at least 90% of ALL activities from band camp to the state OMEA band contest. Due to the 90% of ALL activities – 2 seasons of a sport, cheerleading and/or marching band cannot be completed concurrently.
  • An injury, illness, suspension or athletic suspension could cause a season to not count towards the Physical Education requirements. The two (2) full seasons do not have to be in the same school year. There are no provisions for being exempt from one semester of PE. This is an all or nothing option. One season of sport/cheerleading/band and one semester of Physical Education does not fulfill the requirements. Students who are thinking of going to MVCTC or UVCC must meet the requirements for Physical Education by the end of their sophomore year. Students participating in the Alternate Physical Education Plan still must carry a minimum of 6 courses per semester on their schedule. If a student has not met the requirements by the beginning of their senior year, that student will be placed in the Physical Education classes needed for graduation.
  • The requirements and options presented here are set by the Ohio Department of Education and no credits will be earned through this Alternate Physical Education Plan (SB 311).

scheduling notes
Scheduling Notes:
  • Only students who receive B’s or higher in English should take a foreign language as a Freshman. It is a very high academic course!
  • Taking a foreign language is not a graduation requirement.
  • Many Freshmen will choose to take Information Technology because it is a graduation requirement; as well as, a prerequisite to many business and technology courses.
  • Jazz Ensemble is not being offered for the 2013-2014 school year.
  • Marching Band, Choir, Acting Studies I/II, and Art I/II are all means of acquiring fine art credit. However, you have until graduation to meet the one credit of fine art requirement.
  • You must schedule Physical Education -or- Alternate Physical Education your Freshman and Sophomore school years. Unless, you participate in 2 seasons during your Freshman year (then register for both Alt PE A and Alt PE B).
  • Registering for 6 courses per semester will automatically schedule you a studyhall for the 7th course.
  • Registering for 7 courses per semester will not allow for a studyhall either semester. Please consider the difficulty of entire schedule, extracurricular activities, and social activities.
  • If choosing to register for only one studyhall for one semester over the entire year, students MAY NOT dictate which semester the studyhall is taken.
ohio s graduation testing requirements
Ohio’s Graduation Testing Requirements:

Graduation testing requirements for the Class of 2017 and beyond are yet to be determined by the Ohio Department of Education. However, there will be something.

All indications that are currently being publicized show each student must obtain a “passing score” on:

A. multiple end of the year exams in specific subject

areas

B. a nationally standardized assessment (signs point to the ACT exam)

Once the Ohio Department of Education sets such graduation testing requirements, THS will get that information out immediately.
