ABOUT OUR CURRICULUM Credit: The basic unit of credit in the Lincoln Public Schools is the "credit point." In philosophy, the "credit point" is related to "the amount of learning" the student has accomplished. However, to facilitate an easier transition for our students who must transfer to other school systems before they graduate, the "credit point" also usually has a dual relationship to the amount of time the student spends in class. A class that meets for one period, five days per week, for one semester is worth 5.0 credit points. In the course offerings list, the amount of credit for many courses is listed. Credit is normally not awarded for repeating a course for which credit has already been earned. Check with your counselor for exceptions to this rule. Grading: Most courses are graded on an A-F basis. Some courses are graded on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory (pass/fail) basis. A grade of F in a course means there have been no credits earned for that course. In addition, a student has the individual option to select up to ten credit points each semester to be graded on a satisfactory/ unsatisfactory basis other than the standard system. A student may, however, use only 30 credit points of these satisfactory/ unsatisfactory options toward the total number of hours required for graduation. (Courses offered only on the satisfactory/ unsatisfactory basis do not count toward the 30 points.) Adjusted and Differentiated Curriculum: Adjusted and differentiated programs have been developed for many of the group requirement areas identified in the graduation requirements and for some electives. These programs allow students of varying abilities to study these courses at the appropriate level of difficulty. Counselors and teachers will help you select the appropriate level. Numerous opportunities are available for gifted students. Gifted students should work with the counseling staff and/or the building gifted facilitator to make appropriate selections. Honor Roll: Students who carry at least 25 credits of approved classes and earn a semester GPA of 3.5 or better are eligible for the honor roll. ALL COURSES AND VOCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES AT LINCOLN NORTHEAST ARE OFFERED WITHOUT REGARD TO RACE, COLOR, NATIONAL ORIGIN, SEX OR HANDICAP.

WEIGHTED GRADES PROCESS The Lincoln Public Schools Board of Education approved this system for determining class rank. Below is an explanation of the system that began for students in the class of 2005. • • • • • • • • • • •

Class rank will be calculated by a class rank points system. The weighted grades system will remain the same. The transcript will continue to show a studentʼs GPA as un-weighted and weighted. Each course that a student takes will be assigned class rank points. This is determined by the grade that the student receives in the course and the number of credit hours earned. (see charts below) Weighted courses will receive more class rank points than un-weighted courses. Class rank will be determined by the total of a studentʼs class rank points and will be placed in order from highest total to lowest total. A cap of 280 hours would be placed on class rank points. This cap is figured on a student taking 7 courses for the 8 semesters of high school. If a student has earned more than 280 hours, the courses with the lowest grades and hours would be dropped. These grades will still be figured as part of the studentʼs GPA. Courses taken pass/fail will not receive any points in the class rank points system. It is possible to have a higher GPA than another student and still be ranked lower because of the number of classes that student has taken. The class rank points system rewards students for taking weighted courses as well as a full schedule of classes. Class Rank Points for 5 Hour Courses Grade A B+ B C+ C D+ D F

Regular Points 4.0 3.5 3.0 2.5 2.0 1.5 1.0 0

Weighted Points 5.0 4.5 4.0 3.5 3.0 1.5 1.0 0

COURSES WITH WEIGHTED GRADES A limited number of classes in the Lincoln Public Schools curriculum provide for weighted grades. In these courses, only a grade of "C" and above is weighted. A = 5.0 B+ = 4.5 B = 4.0 C+ = 3.5 C = 3.0 The grade point average on a student's transcript will carry both a "regular" GPA and a "weighted" GPA. The following courses carry weighted grades and are offered at Lincoln Northeast: Art AP Drawing Portfolio Business Education College Accounting English AP Language/Composition AP Literature/Composition College Composition Diff English 10 Human Behavior AP Psychology

High School Graduation Demonstration Requirements The Lincoln Board of Education adopted graduation demonstration requirements to ensure that all students who graduate from high school are skilled in reading, writing, and math. A graduation demonstration is evidence that a student has reached an expected level of achievement. Demonstrations will not grant credit.

Reading Graduation Demonstration Exam (RGDE) The reading demonstration verifies studentʼs vocabulary knowledge and reading comprehension skills.

Writing Graduation Demonstration Exam (RGDE) For the writing demonstration, students must show writing and editing skills.

Math Graduation Demonstration Exam (MGDE) To meet the Math demonstration requirements, students must pass 10 credits in Algebra or 20 credits in Algebra Block.

FOUR YEAR COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS UNL admissions requirements are similar to most four-year colleges in the U.S. If you have a particular college in mind it is wise to consult their catalog or admissions department. To qualify for assured admission, first-time freshmen must graduate from an accredited high school and meet the following conditions: In high school you must have completed: •

4 units of English - All units must include intensive reading and writing experiences

2 units of one world language

4 units of mathematics - Must include Algebra I, II, Geometry, and one additional unit that builds on a knowledge of algebra

3 units of natural sciences including at least 2 units selected from biology, chemistry, physics, and earth sciences. One of the units must include laboratory instruction.

3 units of social sciences - At least one unit of American and/or world history and one additional unit of history, American government, and/or geography.

If you cannot meet the above conditions, you may still be eligible to enroll on a conditional basis. The Office of Admissions will review special applications on a case-by-case basis. Other undergraduate colleges may have additional admission requirements.

eLearning ELearning is a computer-based, online learning system linking educators with progressive technology and proven teaching methods. Lincoln Public Schools work with Apex Learning to provide online instruction for our students. The classes are designed to allow students to work at their own pace to complete high school graduation requirements on the computer. Even though this is an online program, students are required to attend & work in the lab during their assigned class time throughout the semester. Students MUST complete all lessons, quizzes, and tests in order to get credit for eLearning. Each eLearning class is designed to match the Lincoln Public Schools learning standards and meet graduation requirements in a number of areas. eLearning courses include some in the areas of Math, Science, English, Social Studies, Health and Keyboarding. Each class covers the same material learned in the traditional classroom. The only difference is the students teach themselves. We have three different levels of classes to meet the needs of all students. Our Foundations courses are designed for high needs students, Core classes are for students who need credit recovery, and the Comprehensive classes are designed for students who are college bound. ELearning is NOT a study hall, and students wishing to enter eLearning should know this. Students interested in eLearning classes should contact their Counselor for an Application Form.

YOUR OPPORTUNITIES Some students see school as a "bunch of rules"; others see it as a series of opportunities. Students who see it as an opportunity always seem to enjoy school more than the others, so get involved. Below, opportunities are in three categories: Activities, Student Organizations, and Athletics. While the curriculum is the reason we exist, we think these are also very important.
