REPEATING CLASS

SENIOR ABBREVIATED SCHEDULE

Due to budget constraints, and class size reduction, there will be no repeating classes.

PSLH requires 12th grade students to enroll in a minimum of 5 courses. Students are not permitted to be on campus during the school day during the periods they have no classes scheduled. It is required that students with abbreviated schedules must have transportation that allows them to arrive late or leave early; must have schedules with consecutive periods and no gaps; must provide a signed and notarized, parental consent to have an abbreviated schedule; and may not transport other students during school hours. Students encountered on campus in violation of these understandings without administrative consent will be subject to disciplinary consequences including suspension and loss of the abbreviated schedule privilege.

CREDIT LAB Is offered on a limited basis. SCHEDULE CHANGES Students will be able to request changes to their schedules beginning with the second day of each semester. The student must submit a completed Request for Schedule Change form no later than four days following the beginning of each semester. Changes are done on a first come/first served basis, with the upperclassmen receiving first priority. Schedule changes will ONLY be considered for the following reasons:

CURRENT CLUBS Freshman Class Club Academic A Team National Honor Society Spanish Honor Society SADD Takedown Club Skills USA Sophomore Class Club Jaguar Film Club Honor Guard Pep Club Junior Class Club Senior Class Club HOSA International Club SWAT Computer Club Drama Club Color Guard Jags for Life Jagged Edge Envirothon Raiders Air Rifle Team Drill Team F Bible Club EA FLORIDA COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENT TEST (FCAT)

1. Computer errors due to miscoding, dropping of a section, etc. 2. Student has failed to meet the prerequisite for the next level. 3. A level change (up or down); parent/teacher/student conference is required. 4. Student scheduled for course in which a passing grade was previously recorded. 5. Senior needing a course for college or graduation. 6. Administrative change. Requedsts for elective class changes after the 1st and 3r nine weeks may result in a failing grade in the new class for that marking period. For this reason such requests generally will be denied because of the effect on the student's GPA.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENT The current graduating class will be required to pass the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) with a score of 300 on the Reading and 300 on the Mathematics sections (note that the Department of Education may change the score requirements at any time). Students who fail to achieve a passing score on either or both sections of the test will be retested on the section(s) previously failed at each of the fall and spring scheduled administrations until both sections are passed. Students will also be tested in Science and Writing.

ADMINISTRATIVE CHANGES Port St. Lucie High School reserves the right to change individual student schedules to comply with School Board and Department of Education policies. These changes may occur due to changes in the student population or faculty allocation. Changes will be made to balance classes and teacher loads when necessary. Every effort will be made not to disrupt the educational process when such changes become necessary.

If, at the time of graduation, a student has not passed both sections of the FCAT but has met credit and GPA requirements, he/she will receive a Certificate of Completion in lieu of a standard diploma and will be able to participate in graduation

COURSE CREDIT Students will receive 1.00 credit for each subject satisfactorily completed over the period of one school year. For those courses classified as semester courses, .50 credit will be awarded.
