Presentation Transcript

  1. SCHEDULING for 2014-2015 • In order to move through this presentation you will need to use your mouse and move through the slides by clicking your mouse. • On some slides you will need to read the information on that slide to identify how to progress to the next appropriate slide. • This presentation was developed to assist you and your student in completing the scheduling process. • We would like you to know that upon your completion of the scheduling forms that there will be several times they will be reviewed by staff prior to the start of the next school year. • If your student has special needs, it is also likely that the courses needed for the next year will be discussed at the annual meeting.

  2. Scheduling 2014-2015 Guidelines for Course Selection Students must select the required courses for graduation first.(Math, Science, Social Studies, English) Physical Education (PE), Health, or Computer applications are also required for graduation and need to be scheduled if they have not taken them yet. Descriptions of courses are in the course selection guide that was handed out to students. Read the description of each course selected and be familiar with the correct sequences for the grade level. (Use the Scope and Sequence table in this presentation or page 8 in your course selection guide.) Always check course prerequisites in the course selection guide before selecting a course. We encourage students to discuss course selections with parents. Students should speak with their teachers if they choose to take Honors and/or AP course selections and get required signatures. If students still have questions they may see their counselor. York County School of Technology

  4. Graduation Requirements All students are required to have the following: • 28 Credits Minimum - These are gained by passing courses you are scheduled in from year to year. • Students must also meet all Keystone Test requirements as designated by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. In your course selection guide these courses are identified by two asterisks (**) • Literature (English 10) • Algebra 1 • Biology

  5. Graduation Requirements by subject

  6. Promotion Requirements Credits required to move to the next grade *Note: It is important to pass all of your classes so that you can move to the next grade level, have the opportunity to participate in Co-Op in the future, and graduate on time!

  7. Transcripts • Class rank is the position of any one student in a graduating class to all other students in that class based on a weighted grade point average (GPA). • Class rank is calculated at the end of each quarter and is cumulativefor your high school career. • Class rank and GPA are sometimes used as criteria for colleges to determine acceptance. SAMPLE

  8. SAMPLE Transcripts • Weighted Courses: higher level courses carry an extra weight because they tend to be more academically challenging (identified in your course selection guide with {**} two red asterisks) • Cumulative Credits: total of completed credits from ninth grade until now (A course must be finished and passed with 60% or higher final average{FAV} to receive the credit(s).) • Grading Scale: translates your percentage grade to a letter grade and determines what is passing/failing • Test Record: Keystone assessments are replacing PSSA’s • This will include scores of • standardized assessments if • Taken while in high school such • as Keystones, SAT, or ACT. Your student’s attendance will be listed here when they graduate!

  9. Transcripts • FX: this is the grade a student has earned on a final exam • FAV: this is the final average for the class and must be no lower than 60% in order to get credit for the class • Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4: these are the individual marking period quarters SAMPLE

  10. Scope and Sequence -This is only suggested . Some classes may be interchangeable(Social Studies, Computer applications, Health, Physical Education {PE}, and Electives are the subject areas that tend to be most interchangeable and are indicated with a * and an ) ---To view the MATH SEQUENCE FLOWCHART place the mouse over the bold highlighted area in the box containing your student’s year of graduation and click ---To continue with the presentation place your mouse on the green arrow and click

  11. Math Flow Chart • Class of 2016 & 2017 * To return to previous page mouse over the BOLD link below.

  12. Math Flow Chart • Class of 2015 * To return to previous page mouse over the BOLD link below.

  13. Students who have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) * If your student does not have an IEP or special needs you may click here to return to the presentation. If your student has special needs or an(IEP) and is in a class not listed on the previous scope and sequence slide by subject the next slide may be helpful. Support services, accommodations and adaptations necessary for each special student to be successful are specified in an (IEP) developed annually. If your student is currently in a small specifically structured classroom with modifications for a subject, they would usually be scheduled in the next course in the sequence unless changes were discussed in the yearly IEP meeting.

  14. Students in a small specifically structured classroom – suggested scope and sequence • All classes are adapted and modified from the regular education curriculum to meet the needs of the IEP student in English, Science, and Social Studies. (On the Course Request Form these will be designated with a “L” beside the course number.) • Some classes may be interchangeable (Social Studies, Computer applications, Health, Physical Education (PE), and Electives are the subject areas that tend to be most interchangeable and are indicated with a * and a symbol.) • If your student is in a reading class currently they will be taking a reading assessment in the class and that will be a factor in considering whether the student will be removed or in reading for the next year. • ----To continue with the presentation place your mouse on the green arrow and click

  15. Honors & Advanced Courses • These courses are identified in the course selection guide and will have the weight defined in the description of 1.1 or 1.2. • Teacher signature is required if your student chooses to take an Honors or Advanced course. • This will need to be done even in the event that your student is already in an honors or advanced course. *Approval is needed due to the course(s) being very challenging and requiring a higher level of preparation and increased amount of work. Weighting of 1.1 or 1.2

  16. Co-Op Grade 11 Students An opportunity to work in your field, get paid, and earn school credit. time out on co-op will be only during your scheduled technical time and it is during the last marking period of the year • Cumulative GPA must be at least 80% • A student may not fail a class in the marking period prior to being release on co-op • Attendance and discipline will also be reviewed time out will depend on needed courses for graduation • Cumulative GPA must be at least 70% • A student may not fail a class in the marking period prior to being released on co-op • Attendance and discipline will also be reviewed Grade 12 Students

  17. Course Requests for 2014-2015 Review for Course Selection Students must select the required courses for graduation first.(Math, Science, Social Studies, English) Physical Education (PE), Health, or Computer applications are also required for graduation and need to be scheduled if they have not taken them yet. Descriptions of courses are in the course selection guide that was handed out to students. Read the description of each course selected and be familiar with the correct sequences for the grade level. (Use the Scope and Sequence in this presentation or page 8 in the course selection guide.) Students with an IEP might use the modified scope and sequence slide (slide 14) depending on the current course they are already scheduled in this year. Always check course prerequisites in the course selection guide before selecting a course. We encourage students to discuss course selections with parents. Students should speak with their teachers if they choose to take Honors and AP course selections and get required signatures. If students still have questions they may see their counselor.
