our problem
Our Problem…
  • Twelve years ago no one could schedule home release as a class.
    • Then seniors could schedule one period of home release.
    • Then it was juniors
    • Finally Sophomores that walk to school could schedule a period of home release.
    • Class sizes had increased from 18 to 33, and the staff has decreased from 18 to 12 in less than 6 years.
  • As a Result
  • Senior attendance was poor.
  • Seniors were not challenging themselves.
  • High School was less rigorous.
  • Fewer electives available.
  • Students that did not have a 3.5 GPA or higher were not taking the courses necessary for eligibility in post secondary or employment their Junior and Senior Years.
  • Students placed little or no value on passing their State Tests or completing their Certificate of Initial Mastery.
  • There was a growing GPA gap between those students with at least 3.5 GPA and the rest of the high school.

items to consider
Items to Consider
  • It has changed the Senior Year
    • It is not the Senior year I had
  • It has changed our Leadership Structure and Hierarchy
    • If you were a teacher that got to work with the top seniors, that motivation has changed.
  • It is not less work
  • Point of Contact
    • High School
    • Community College
  • Honors
    • Honor Roll, Valedictorian, Academic Letters
  • Things From Students
    • Grades, Schedules, Books, Progress Reports, Communication
  • Information to the State
    • Attendance, ADM
  • Things we need to do better
    • Scheduling availability
    • It is a tool to help change a system.
  • Counts against us for OSAA classification
  • Counts against us for graduation rate
  • OTM is not a degree or certificate
