No matter where “here” is, accessing a quality education is possible through Texas Tech University’s College of Outreach & Distance Education (CODE). Our kindergarten through 12th grade programs can educate one student, an entire classroom, or a complete school district. Our distance education kindergarten through 12th grade credit options include independent study courses as well as an accredited elementary, middle, and high school that allows you to pursue a Texas high school diploma regardless of where you live. Academically strong high school students may choose to take a dual-credit course, allowing them to simultaneously earn both high school and college credit. Additionally, Credit by Examinations (CBEs) are designed to evaluate a student’s mastery of a given subject or discipline relative to the state standards. We also work with schools, districts, academies, and other educational institutions to offer testing services (bulk cbes), a dropout prevention option, and customized curriculum options. We also offer kindergarten through 12th grade non-credit academic enrichment through the Outdoor school.

How to Enroll HOW TO ENROLL

Ready to enroll? Here’s how!

1. Obtain approval from your school counselor or principal. 2. Review the Policies & Forms Guide before enrolling. 3. Be aware of graduation deadlines. 4. Enroll and order textbooks and materials online.

OBTAIN APPROVAL “CODE gave me the chance to take a class I was interested in while also allowing me to take care of my credits required for graduation.” Kayla Arlington, Texas HIST 1A

If you are currently enrolled in a public or private school, you must obtain approval from your school counselor or principal before enrolling. Failure to receive approval could cause enrollment delays and may result in your school not granting credit. If you plan to enroll in TTUISD’s diploma program, you must first apply and be accepted. Refer to page 8 for TTUISD application process. Once you have been accepted, you must receive approval from a TTUISD counselor or administrator before enrolling in a course. Failure to receive approval before enrolling could result in admission or enrollment delays.

Review THE Policies & Forms Guide before enrolling

You will be bound by our policies upon enrolling. Our Policies & Forms Guide is available at www.k12.ttu.edu. High school students taking dual-credit courses must be compliant with the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) before enrolling in a course. For more information about TSI, visit www.depts.ttu.edu/registrar/TSI/.

TEXAS SUCCESS INITIATIVE COMPLIANCE

Under the Texas Success Initiative (TSI), you must either be exempt or take a TSI Approved test such as the Texas Higher Education Assessment (THEA), the Compass, Accuplacer, or Asset Examination to test for basic skills in the areas of reading, math and writing. For specific information on TSI exemptions, visit www.depts.ttu.edu/registrar/TSI/. Students who take a TSI test yet fail one or more portions of a TSI test must see a TSI advisor in the TSI Skills Development Office prior to meeting with their regular advisor. For more information on TSI Skills Development, visit http://www.depts.ttu.edu/tasp/.

TEXAS SUCCESS INITIATIVE SKILLS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

The TSI Skills Development Program seeks to improve student readiness for successful completion of collegelevel work. The state of Texas and TTU regulations require all students who fail one or more portions of a TSI test to enroll for development courses in the area(s) of deficiency and follow the mandatory attendance rules. Failure to meet these regulations will result in the student’s withdrawal from the university. For more information on TSI Skills Development, visit http://www.depts.ttu.edu/tasp/.

Be aware of GRADUATION DEADLINES

In an ongoing effort to treat all students fairly and maintain academic integrity, our faculty and staff will do everything possible to help you meet reasonable graduation deadlines. Unreasonable expectations will not be addressed. To guarantee grades for graduation, May graduates must have all lessons and final examination requests submitted by April 15 and final examinations taken by May 7. TTUISD students should refer to page 8 for information on TTUISD graduation deadlines. For information on course extensions and exchanges, refer to page 28 in this catalog or visit www.k12.ttu.edu.

Enroll and order textbooks and materials online

You can enroll online or use the K-12 Enrollment Form in the back of this catalog. You will need textbooks regardless of whether you take an online or print-based course. Most textbooks required for your course(s) can be purchased through CODE. Although you are not required to buy textbooks and materials from CODE at the time you enroll, we recommend you do so (unless otherwise stated in the course description). If you secure books from another source or choose not to purchase books and materials when you enroll, you are responsible for obtaining the correct edition of each book. Given that publishers often change versions and ISBN numbers for textbooks, we recommend that you purchase all required textbooks from the CODE Bookstore.

How to Enroll | 3


Take a Credit by Examination (CBE) How it Works

1. Review the Policies & Forms Guide before enrolling. 2. Prepare for the examination. 3. Contact an approved proctor. 4. Take the examination. 5. Receive a percentage of mastery score.

Credit by Examinations

Review THE Policies & Forms Guide before enrolling “My physics labs were interesting and really made the lesson come to life and be more interactive. I liked the course book and the formula sheet was very useful. The course was very challenging but also fun.” Lexi Houston, Texas PHY 1A

It is your responsibility to make sure CBEs taken through CODE will be accepted by your school. Obtain approval from a counselor or principal before enrolling. Failure to receive approval may result in your school not granting credit for the CBEs you have taken. You must abide by all of CODE’s policies & procedures. Our Policies & Forms Guide is available at www.k12.ttu.edu.

Prepare FOR THE Examination

Review sheets for CBEs are available at www.k12.ttu.edu. The CBE review sheets include a few sample questions (and in many cases, sample examinations), explain the format of examinations in detail, and suggest helpful textbooks to review. The review sheets will also contain a detailed list of items you must bring to the examination. CBE review sheets are not comprehensive and do not cover all the material in the tests. We recommend that you download review sheets when you register for your examination to ensure you receive the most current versions.

Purchase TEXTBOOKS (OPTIONAL)

You do not have to order textbooks to study for a CBE since CBEs are not tied to specific textbooks. If you wish to refer to a textbook, you may use any Texas state-adopted textbook.

Exchange a CBE

For detailed information on exchanging a CBE, refer to page 28.

Contact AN APPROVED PROCTOR

Normally, the proctor is an official at your school. Tutors or officials from non-accredited schools cannot proctor CBEs. CBEs will be sent to your approved designated proctors. You must take the test at the time agreed upon with the proctor, who will then mail it back to CODE. Proctors usually charge a fee for examination proctoring; check at the testing-site when scheduling the examination. No persons related to you may proctor, handle or return your examination. If you live outside the United States, or for more testing-site options, contact our office.

Take the Examination

You have 60 days to take your CBE once the enrollment is processed. No extensions or refunds will be granted for CBEs. Make arrangements with your school official to take your examination with an approved proctor BEFORE the expiration date. CBEs that expire during the summer months cannot be taken when school resumes without re-enrollment.

Receive A PERCENTAGE OF MASTERY Score

Texas-certified instructors will grade CBEs, usually within five working days of arrival. A percentage of mastery score will be mailed to you and to your school. Schools use the percentage of mastery score to determine whether or not to award credit. Schools that order examinations for a number of students through our Testing Services (Bulk CBEs) will receive both grade report copies (school and student) for distribution. The minimum passing score for these examinations is determined by local district policy. Check with your school administrators to determine your school’s policy.

“My peer counseling course taught me a great deal about myself and I was uplifted by all the positive lessons the course had to offer.” Brittany Humble, Texas Peer Counseling 1A


Start Your Course Submit Assignments

Submit assignments via e-mail, regular mail (using your postage-paid envelopes and barcode labels), fax (using barcode labels), or through an online course’s Web page (as applicable). Specific instructions for submitting assignments will be provided once you have enrolled. Make a copy of each assignment before submitting it; we will not give credit for assignments lost in the regular mail. We recommend (and sometimes require) that you submit assignments one at a time so that you have the benefit of your instructor’s feedback before completing the next assignment.

“Health was probably one of the most interesting classes I’ve ever taken. I already want to start eating healthier and recycle to help my health and the health of others around me.” Kelsie Lubbock, Texas HLED

Fax and e-mail services are not available for certain courses. Submitting assignments, for those courses that allow it, via e-mail or fax may reduce transit time but will not shorten grading time. Most e-mailed lessons are returned by e-mail. Faxed lessons are returned by regular mail. Allow one to two weeks from the date your lesson assignment is received in our office for your instructor to evaluate and return it by regular mail. You must pay postage for lesson assignments mailed from outside the contiguous United States; however, no additional fee is charged for e-mailing or faxing assignments.

Communicate With Instructors

You will be assigned an instructor who will grade all course assignments and examinations, provide feedback, and answer any questions about course content. You may submit questions or comments to CODE through mail, fax, or e-mail for routing to your instructor(s).

Check Progress Online (www.courseportal.ode.ttu.edu) Start Your Course

Whether you are enrolled in a print-based or online course, our convenient online CODE Course Portal lets you view courses in which you are enrolled, check grades, request examinations and more. It’s simple! 1. Visit www.courseportal.ode.ttu.edu. 2. Your password will be sent to you via e-mail when you enroll in your course. Login using your first and last name (the name you registered under, not a nickname or initials) and your password. 3. If you do not have a password, follow the instructions under the gray Login button. 4. Once you’re logged in, your courses will display on the right-hand side of the screen. Only current or recently completed courses will display. Expired courses, courses completed more than a month previous, and Credit by Examinations (CBEs) do not show up on the CODE Course Portal. 5. Notice each course has several icons associated with it. To learn more about what the icons represent, just read the descriptions in the center of your screen. In accordance with CODE policy, grades are posted only after a) an assignment is logged as received by CODE, and b) the grade is posted by the instructor. Instructors have five working days from the date lesson is received in our office to assess each assignment, regardless of how the assignment was submitted (via Moodle, WebCT, e-mail, fax, standard mail, etc.). The CODE Course Portal is available only to students enrolled in for-credit courses (not CBEs) for the duration of official CODE course enrollment(s). The CODE Course Portal is for student information purposes only and does not constitute a contract, official grade report, transcript, or any other negotiable instrument. Grades appearing on the CODE Course Portal are posted solely at the discretion of CODE instructors and staff. Account “holds” or policy violations may delay or even prohibit grade posting or release. Students providing valid e-mail addresses typically receive CODE Course Portal access instructions via e-mail within 24 hours of registration. Only one username and password will be issued per student. Students attempting to establish multiple usernames and/or passwords waive all CODE Course Portal access rights. Usernames and passwords are administered, authorized, and managed by CODE personnel, not instructors.

Contact AN APPROVED PROCTOR

Find an approved proctor to supervise your final examination. Proctors usually charge a fee for examination proctoring; check at the testing-site when scheduling the examination. The chart below identifies approved proctors. Tutors or officials from non-accredited schools cannot proctor examinations. To maintain the integrity and validity of the examination, no student, relative of the student, or unauthorized person may issue or return the final examination. If you live outside the United States, or for more testing-site options, contact our office.

“CODE has helped me develop the essential skill of time management, which is necessary for college, and the rest of my life, for that matter.” Alexandra Sebring, FL TTUISD High School Student


Texas Tech University Independent School District Texas Tech University Independent School District (TTUISD) provides a comprehensive kindergarten through 12th grade education. “I have lived in Texas all of my life and liked the idea of continuing to learn from a Texas-based school [while I was away in Seattle]. I know many people who have gone through this program and they have all highly recommended it.” Julia Dallas, Texas TTUISD High School Student

Accredited by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), our elementary, middle and high schools provide a well-rounded curriculum written to comply with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). If you are homeschooling or are unable to attend a public or private school and need a full-time kindergarten through 12th grade distance learning option, consider TTUISD. Our helpful, knowledgeable staff will guide you every step of the way. A COMPREHENSIVE CURRICULUM

TTUISD offers a comprehensive curriculum – coursework is offered in all required subject areas from kindergarten through high school. Courses and Credit by Examinations (CBEs) are written by Texas-certified teachers and allow students to test out of subjects.

Texas Tech University Independent School District

The lesson plans for our elementary courses (grades K-5) require no prior teaching experience to use. TTUISD High School students may choose between a Minimum Graduation Plan and a Recommended Graduation Plan (College Preparatory Program). Students who successfully complete high school requirements and pass the exit-level TAKS will earn a Texas high school diploma. Students must take a minimum of four full courses to be considered a full-time TTUISD student. CBEs do not count when determining full-time student status.

TTUISD Application Process

• Apply at any time. • Complete the admission form and submit it with an official school transcript (if applicable) and a one-time, nonrefundable, $50 evaluation fee to TTUISD. The TTUISD Admission Form can be found in the back of this catalog and at www.k12.ttu.edu. Please note: Academic needs are assessed individually and are used to determine admission. Please do not enroll in courses until you receive official notification of acceptance, and you have had a conference (by telephone or in person) with a TTUISD counselor. • Once admitted to TTUISD, refer to page 3 for directions on how to enroll in courses and CBEs or contact TTUISD for assistance. All course enrollments must be approved by a TTUISD counselor.

GRADUATION CEREMONY

If you complete graduation requirements before April 15, 2010, you may participate in the May graduation ceremony as a Texas Tech High School graduate. If you complete graduation requirements after April 15, 2010, and before September 1, 2010, you may participate in the May ceremony as a summer school graduate. You will be listed as a summer school graduate and will be part of the graduating class for the following year. In order to be a summer school graduate, you must be enrolled in your last 2.5 credits before April 15, 2010.

Texas Tech University Elementary School Curriculum Design

Courses are designed for parents or tutors working with elementary students in a home environment. Our comprehensive, easy-to-follow lesson plans are written by experienced, Texas-certified classroom teachers and do not require a teaching background to use. The comprehensive course guides include clearly written daily lessons in language arts (reading, grammar, composition, spelling/phonics and handwriting), math, science and social studies, as well as worksheets, answer keys, and tests to accompany the lessons. Lessons are written to appeal to students with different learning styles and include application activities that emphasize higher-level thinking skills. Optional Internet activities are included in many lessons to encourage students to use computers to gather and interpret information. All of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) are addressed in each of the courses.

8 | TTUISD

800.my.course


Texas Tech University Independent School District The elementary curriculum focuses on four disciplines: language arts, science, social studies and math. Each course consists of two semesters. Each semester course offers 75 days of instruction and may be purchased as a grade-level set or as a combination of grade-level courses to accommodate the needs of multi-level students. The CODE Bookstore will stock only the textbooks that are required for the elementary courses; the remainder of the books may be found in your public library, at local bookstores or online. Given that publishers often change versions and ISBNs for textbooks, we recommend that you purchase all required elementary textbooks from the CODE Bookstore. A list of these books is available under the individual course descriptions.

Assessment “We wanted our son to be able to have the freedom to rodeo and have the flexibility to do their school work on the road. I also wanted a school that was an accredited program so that Dillon would be able to rodeo in high school.� Gennifer Bend, Texas Mother of TTUISD Elementary Student

Students enrolled in TTUISD Elementary School will be required to complete and submit written assessments (unit tests) and projects at the conclusion of each unit. There are three units in each semester. All unit tests and project ideas are included in the comprehensive lesson plan with the exception of the Unit Six test, which is sent to an approved proctor who will monitor only the Unit Six test. The Unit Six test is not a comprehensive final; it is a test over the information that is required in the Unit Six curriculum studies. Students submit written assessments and projects through the mail. They are evaluated and graded by an experienced, Texas-certified elementary teacher and returned to the student; the grades are recorded at TTUISD. The student must pass the Unit Six test to pass the course. At the end of each semester, students receive a semester report card. The second semester report card will include the yearly average. The semester one and semester two grades will be averaged to determine promotion status to the next grade level. Students must pass each course with at least 70 percent mastery in order to progress to the next grade level.

TTUISD Students – DON’T FORGET ABOUT DUAL-CREDIT Courses!

For a listing of college courses, visit www.ode.ttu.edu or call TTUISD for more information. Dual-credit courses are college-level courses taught by Texas Tech University faculty. You will be expected to perform at the University level. Texas Tech University requires the student to pass either the Texas Higher Education Assessment (THEA) test or be exempt from the test as a result of SAT, ACT, or TAKS test scores before enrolling in a dual-credit course. All finals must be proctored at a college or university testing center. TTUISD students will receive TTUISD honors credit for dual-credit courses. Other Texas Tech University courses can be taken for dual credit if they are approved by TTUISD counselors in advance. TTUISD students must be enrolled full-time in order to take dual-credit courses.

Students over the age of 18 must provide written authorization for the release of information.

Honor System

Academic Integrity

It is the aim of the faculty of Texas Tech University to foster a spirit of complete honesty and a high standard of integrity. The attempt of students to present as their own any work that they have not honestly performed is regarded by the faculty and administration as a serious offense and renders the offenders liable to serious consequences, including possible suspension. The instructor in a course is responsible for initiating action for dishonesty or plagiarism that occurs in his or her class. In cases of convincing evidence of or admitted academic dishonesty or plagiarism, an instructor should take appropriate action. Before taking such action, however, the instructor should attempt to discuss the matter with the student. If cheating is suspected on a final exam, the instructor should not submit a grade until a reasonable attempt can be made to contact the student, preferably within one month after the end of the semester. See the section on Academic Conduct in the Code of Student Conduct for details of this policy. The Code of Student Conduct is available from the Office of Student Judicial Programs, 806.742.1714, or online at www.studentaffairs.ttu.edu or www.depts.ttu.edu/studentjudicialprograms.

According to the Undergraduate/Graduate Catalog:

“Cheating” includes, but is not limited to, the following: 1. Copying from another student’s test paper. 2. Using materials during a test that have not been authorized by the person giving the test. 3. Failing to comply with instructions given by the person administering the test. 4. Possessing materials during a test that are not authorized by the person giving the test, such as class notes or specifically designed “crib notes.” The presence of textbooks constitutes a violation only if they have been specifically prohibited by the person administering the test. 5. Using, buying, stealing, transporting, or soliciting in whole or in part the contents of an unadministered test, test key, homework solution, or computer program. 6. Collaborating with, or seeking aid or receiving assistance from, another student or individual during a test, or in conjunction with an assignment without authority. 7. Discussing the contents of an examination with another student who will take the examination. 8. Divulging the contents of an examination, for the purpose of preserving questions for use by another, when the instructor has designated that the examination is not to be removed from the examination room or not to be returned to or kept by the student.

General Information/Policies & Procedures

“Plagiarism” includes, but is not limited to, the appropriation of, buying, receiving as a gift, or obtaining by any means material that is attributable in whole or in part to another source, including words, ideas, illustrations, structure, computer code, other expression and media, and presenting that material as one’s own academic work being offered for credit. Any student who fails to give credit for quotations or for an essentially identical expression of material taken from books, encyclopedias, magazines, Internet documents, reference works, or from the themes, reports, or other writings of a fellow student is guilty of plagiarism. “Collusion” includes, but is not limited to, the unauthorized collaboration with another person in preparing academic assignments offered for credit or collaboration with another person to commit a violation of any section of the rules on scholastic dishonesty. “Falsifying academic records” includes, but is not limited to, altering or assisting in the altering of any official record of the University, and/ or submitting false information or omitting requested information that is required for or related to any academic record of the University. Academic records include, but are not limited to, applications for admission, the awarding of a degree, grade reports, test papers, registration materials, grade change forms, and reporting forms used by the Office of the Registrar. A former student who engages in such conduct is subject to a bar against readmission, revocation of a degree, and withdrawal of a diploma. “Misrepresenting facts” to the University or an agent of the University includes, but is not limited to, providing false grades or resumes; providing false or misleading information in an effort to receive a postponement or an extension on a test, quiz, or other assignment for the purpose of obtaining an academic or financial benefit for oneself or another individual; or providing false or misleading information in an effort to injure another student academically or financially.

Students with Disabilities

The Texas Tech University College of Outreach & Distance Education kindergarten through 12th grade curriculum used by TTUISD students, traditional homeschool students, and all other students who enroll through the College is developed to meet the standards of the State of Texas and the Texas Education Agency. Written by Texas-certified teachers for the average and above-average student, this material is very reading-and writing-intensive and thus the course content cannot be modified. Please note that distance education presents different challenges from traditional classroom-based instruction. We can provide you with information about available disability accommodations before you are officially admitted to TTUISD or enroll in a course if you provide us with documentation about the nature of your disability and the kind of accommodation that your disability requires (as described in further detail below). Reasonable accommodations are those that do not cause undue burden and do not fundamentally alter course requirements. We require the submission of a current (within the last three years) signed accommodation/ modification statement from your Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) committee report, or a 504 Accommodation Form from the public school district in which you reside, describing any special considerations necessary for you to take a course and/or exams.

Grade Appeals

K-12 Courses and CBEs

To appeal a K-12 course or CBE grade, first consult with the instructor. If the matter has not been resolved, then you may consult with the director of Student Services. If you are a TTUISD student, contact your principal or superintendent. If there is no resolution, file a formal appeal with CODE within 45 days of the date the final course grade was mailed to you. You can obtain a copy of the grade appeals policy by calling the CODE director of Student Services.

Dual-credit Courses

A student who wishes to appeal a final course grade should first consult with the course instructor, then with the department chairperson, and then, if the matter remains unresolved, with the dean of the college in which the course is offered. A grade appeal must be filed in the office of the dean of the college in which the course is offered within 45 days of the start of the next long semester after the term in which the disputed grade was received. Copies of the grade appeals policy can be obtained from any academic dean’s office or from the Center for Campus Life.

The Outdoor School at Texas Tech University in Junction, Texas, provides innovative educational opportunities designed to immerse students in real-world, hands-on activities. Unlike a camp or school-sponsored “field trip,” the Outdoor School is dynamically designed to serve as an extension of the traditional classroom setting. Units of instruction are aligned closely to the Texas Education Agency’s (TEA) Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), and goals and learning objectives can be tailored further to meet student, teacher and even school district needs. Lesson plans are provided to teachers before students arrive in Junction so investigative research activities can begin at home campuses before in-field exploration begins. Working collaboratively, classroom teachers and Texas Tech University instructors can provide most any K-12 “Adventure Team” with a unique and unforgettable educational experience.
