Welcome to High School!! The pages in this booklet will be a “stepping stone” for you as you enter high school and begin your path towards your future! We will be here to assist you every step of the way, so do not let this seem like an overwhelming “leap” into adulthood!! The Programs of Study will be your “roadmap” to assist you in your navigation through the maze of decision making. Your school counselor will return to your “map” each year as you and your parent(s) make decisions regarding your Personal Education Plan (PEP). It is our desire to assist you in linking what you learn in high school with the skills that are needed to be successful with your post-secondary goals. There are many opportunities for success while in high school. We encourage you to take advantage of the various programs such as the Show-Me Scholars Award. The criterion for this award is contained in this booklet. Often times, colleges will award scholarships to those students receiving this type of award. Other programs that are open to our students are Missouri’s A+ Schools Program and the International Baccalaureate © (IB ©) Diploma Program. All three high schools are designated as A+ schools while Central students can participate in the IB © program. Students who qualify for A+ can qualify for state-paid financial incentives (if fully funded). The IB© program is recognized world-wide as an academically challenging and balanced program of education for juniors and seniors. Be sure to discuss the benefits of these educational options with your counselor. The secret to success in high school is as follows: • • •

Get involved! Attend regularly! Have a plan! (This is your Personal Education Plan…PEP!)

IKF i.

Personal Finance - One-half unit of Personal Finance or approved substitutes is required in eleventh or twelfth grade.

2. Pass proficiency exams concerning American History, American Institutions, and the Missouri and the U. S. Constitutions. 3. Have earned credit in the St. Joseph School District educational program between the ninth and twelfth grades. 4. Complete ten (10) hours of community service. 5. The School District of St. Joseph recommends a minimum of eight (8) semesters of high school attendance to qualify for graduation, beginning with the graduating class of 1990. However, recognizing that some students, for sound educational and vocational reasons, may wish to graduate from high school in seven (7) semesters, the Board will allow early graduation if the procedures listed in Policy IKFA are followed. 6. For grade classification purposes, students must earn the following units of credit before being considered a: Sophomore 6 units Junior 12 units Senior 18 units 7. Differentiated curricular recommendations for additional units of credit will be strongly encouraged for students choosing a particular program of study. Differentiated recommendations will be developed for the work/study, vocational-technical, general, and college preparatory programs of study. Graduation requirements will be the same for the vocational-technical, general, and college preparatory programs of study, although the electives recommended will be quite different. Students in any of the latter three programs of study may choose, at any time, to move into a different program of study as long as they can complete the newly-chosen program of study. Building administrators and counselors will work with each student and parent(s) to assure that they fully comprehend the available programs of study. Program planning encompassing all four years of high school will be provided late in grade eight or early in grade nine. However, changes in the planned program could occur during each year of school. The District will participate in the College Preparatory Studies Certificate Program (see page 8) as provided by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Exceptions 1. Graduation requirements for a student with a disability receiving special education services pursuant to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) may be determined according to the student's Individualized Education Program (IEP). 2. Students transferring from another accredited Missouri school as a junior or senior who cannot reasonably complete the district's requirements may be permitted to graduate based on the successful completion of a program of studies that would have met the graduation requirements at the school formerly attended, including the requirements of (2) above. 3. The District will waive the requirement to pass proficiency exams concerning American History, American Institutions, and the Missouri and U.S. Constitutions for students who transfer from another state if they can document the successful completion of a course of instruction in the institutions, branches and functions of state government, including local governments, the U.S. government and the electoral process. Such instruction must have been completed in grades nine through twelve. IKF

4. Students who transfer from another state or country or an unaccredited private, public or home school and who are placed in the ninth grade will be required to meet all established graduation requirements. If such a student is placed in the tenth grade or higher, the district will work with the student and the parents/guardians to develop a program of studies that will result in graduation if successfully completed. 5. Eligible students who successfully complete the Missouri Option Program (formerly the GED Option Program) will be awarded a high school diploma. Earning Credit 1. The superintendent or designee is directed to assign credit values for courses offered by or through the school district and to develop formulas and procedures for awarding credit to transfer students who transfer from a district that uses a different standard for awarding credit. All courses that extend for the full school term will be considered to be one-unit courses. Courses that extend for one-half of the school term will be considered half-unit courses. 2. The St. Joseph School District recognizes units of credit obtained through accredited schools, including credits earned through correspondence courses or courses delivered primarily through electronic media, such as satellite video, cable video or computer-driven or online courses. For the purposes of this policy, an "accredited school" is the Missouri Virtual Instruction Program (MoVIP); a private agency where students with disabilities are placed by a public school; or any school accredited by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA), the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS) or the University of Missouri Committee on Accredited Schools Non-Public (CAS). If a school is located in another state or country, that school must be accredited by that state or country’s department of education, NCA, ISACS, or the equivalent agencies. 3. Students may earn credit by other means as approved by the Board and in accordance with law. Diplomas Students will be awarded either a diploma or certificate of attendance in accordance with this policy and as permitted by law. A student in the household of an active duty member of the military, including some veterans who are deceased or injured as defined by law, who transfers to the St. Joseph School District from another state at the beginning of or during his or her senior year who will not meet the graduation requirements of the District by the end of the senior year will receive a diploma from the sending school district if the student is able to meet the graduation requirements of the sending district. Representatives from the St. Joseph School District and the sending district will work with the student to facilitate this alternative. If the sending district refused to cooperate, the St. Joseph School District will use best efforts to allow the student to graduate by the end of the senior year.

1. All full-credit courses which carry one-half unit of the credit for one semester's work will count in the GPA computation. 2. A student's semester GPA will be derived by dividing total points earned in classes by the total number of full-credit courses in which the student was enrolled during the semester. 3. Total points for the semester are obtained by adding the number of base points earned by the student during the semester. 4. The universal grading scale shown above was adopted by the school board to be used for all students beginning the fall of 1997. 5. The cumulative GPA after any semester will be obtained by adding the total number of points earned in each of the previous semesters, including the semester just completed, and dividing the total number of full credit semester courses through the completing of the most recent semester. The maximum possible unweighted GPA at any time is 4.00. 6. Class rank is based on a student's weighted GPA and assigned ordinarily for example, if two students are tied for the number 1 position; the next highest GPA is given the rank of number 3.

Weighted Classes 1. Freshmen and sophomores may receive weighted credit in a maximum of 4 classes. 2. Juniors and seniors may receive weighted credit in a maximum of 5 classes. 3. Weighted offerings are limited to “the core,� third and fourth years of foreign language or the core electives.

Valedictorian and Salutatorian 1. 2. 3. 4.

Must have attended the school the last 4 semesters. Must have completed the maximum number of credits offered by their school each year. Must have a class rank and GPA based on a weighted scale. In case of a tie for valedictorian, the school will not name a salutatorian.

The waiver has been used once you register, even if you do not test on the requested test date. Fee waivers cover only the basic registration fee for the test option selected when registering, including up to four valid college choices (listed as part of registration). Waivers do not cover the late fee, test date changes, test center changes, or any other fees. Preparation for the ACT is very important.

Frequently asked questions: What is a dual credit class? Students enrolled in high school may be dual enrolled at a local institution of higher learning, such as a community college or university. Students enroll in courses at the college or university and earn both high school and college credit. Tuition rates for the college credit are typically lower than a university rate. Depending upon which course a student is enrolled in, specific ACT scores are required. See counselor for further details. What is an Advanced Placement class? The College Board's® Advanced Placement Program® enables students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school. Based on their performance on rigorous AP Exams, students can earn credit, advanced placement, or both, for college. (Source: AP Central) What is an honors course? The difference between an honors course and a regular course is not necessarily the amount of work required but rather the type of work and pace with which the course is delivered. What is Project Lead the Way? Project Lead the Way (PLTW) offers a dynamic high school program that provides students with real-world learning and hands-on experience. Students interested in medicine, engineering, biomechanics, aeronautics, and other applied math and science arenas will discover PLTW is an exciting portal into these industries. What is the International Baccalaureate© program? The recognized and respected International Baccalaureate© (IB©) Diploma Program is designed as an academically challenging and balanced program of education for junior and senior year of high school. The program balances subject breadth and depth, considers the nature of knowledge across disciplines, and encourages international-mindedness starting with a foundation in their own language and culture to prepare students to be successful beyond high school. Central High School is an IB© World School. Please contact Luanne Haggard, IB© Coordinator, at Central High School (671-4080) or luanne.haggard@sjsd.k12.mo.us for more information.
