8 QUANTITATIVE REASONING COURSES Students pursuing the Core 40, Academic Honors (AHD), and Technical Honors (THD) diplomas must take a mathematics course or a quantitative reasoning course each year they are enrolled in high school. A quantitative reasoning course is a high school course that "advances a student's ability to apply mathematics in real world situations and contexts" and that "deepens a student's understanding of high school mathematics standards." The chart below provides a list of courses that have been determined to meet the criteria for quantitative reasoning courses for Any mathematics course would also fulfill this requirement. A quantitative reasoning course does not fulfill a mathematics course required for graduation or academic honors. Business Courses Accounting I Accounting II Computer Programming: Java Computer Programming: C++ Engineering PLTW Courses Aerospace Engineering Civil Engineering and Architecture Digital Electronics Engineering Design and Development Principles of Engineering Social Studies Courses Economics Macroeconomics, AP Microeconomics, AP Ben Davis Area 31 Courses Advanced Manufacturing II Construction Technology: Electrical II Construction Technology: HVAC II Electronics and Computer Technology II Precision Machining I Precision Machining II Science Courses Biology, Advanced Placement Chemistry I Chemistry, AP Environmental Science, AP Integrated Chemistry-Physics Physics I Physics C, AP CLASS RANK CALCULATION Classes of 2016 & 2017 The cumulative GPA is used to determine class ranking. Updates to class rank occur at the end of each semester as the semester grade is that which is factored into the GPA. The cumulative GPA includes all courses and credits earned in grades 9 through 12. It may also include high school courses and credits that were earned while in middle school. Final decisions regarding acceptance of middle school credits must be made by the end of grade 9. The senior with the highest class rank will be designated as the graduating Valedictorian. The senior with the second highest class rank will be designated as Salutatorian. The Valedictorian and Salutatorian is determined at the end of the 8 th high school semester. Classes of 2018 & Beyond Class rank calculation for the class of 2018 and beyond is identical to previous years with one exception. Only grades and credits earned in grades 9 through 12 will be factored into the high school class rank. Grades and credits earned below grade 9 will not be included in ranking, but may still be used to meet high school graduation requirements and cumulative GPA calculation. A separately calculated rank GPA will determine a student s rank status and will be updated at the end of each semester. 7

9 TESTS REQUIRED FOR GRADUATION: END OF COURSE ASSESSMENTS (ECA) All students will take End of Course Assessments (ECAs) in English 10, Algebra I, and Biology to meet graduation testing requirements. Students who do not meet state graduation standards will be given two additional opportunities in grade 11 and two additional opportunities in grade 12 to demonstrate proficiency. English 10: Required passing cut score = 360 Algebra 1: Required passing cut score = 564 Biology: Passing cut score = 509 The State of Indiana has a unique expectation for the Biology exam in the fact that students are simply required to take the exam, but do not have to meet a minimum score. However, the exam score does reflect learning and may be used as an evaluation tool for a semester grade and course placement. State law provides that a student who successfully meets the Core 40 requirements may still graduate without passing the End of Course Assessments (ECA) by successfully appealing the student s test results under State Board criteria (IC ). The student must have: Taken the graduation test in the subject area or areas in which the student did not achieve a passing score at least one (1) time every year during his sophomore, junior, and senior years in high school. Complete remediation opportunities provided by the school. Maintain a minimum attendance rate of 95 percent. Maintain a C average in the courses that make up the thirty-four (34) credits specifically required for graduation and Obtain a written recommendation supporting the request for the appeal from the student s teacher(s) in the subject area(s) in which the student has not achieved a passing score. For more information on the End-of-Course Assessments, visit GRADE WEIGHTING Brownsburg High School maintains a two-tiered grade weighting system. Please review the chart below for the grade weighting scale followed by a list of all weighted courses and their weight value. Not all courses carry the same weight. For dual credit courses, students must qualify and enroll through the coordinating university to receive a grade weight. Students must earn a C- or higher in the course to receive a grade weight. AP Students must take the AP exam. See course description for additional course requirements. GRADE WEIGHTING SCALE Unweighted A A A B B B C C C D F

11 ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) The Advanced Placement Program is sponsored by the College Board, a non-profit membership organization. The Advanced Placement Program (AP) gives students an opportunity to experience college-level courses and exams while they are still in high school. The AP tests are scored on a one to five scale. Through this program, students may earn college credit, accelerated placement, or both for college. Because Advanced Placement courses are equivalent to a college level course, students who take AP courses should expect to spend a considerable amount of time outside the classroom devoted to this rigorous coursework. As a general rule, expect to spend one hour of work per day outside the class per period. Indiana PL 91 requires all Indiana public colleges and universities (including all two and four year institutions and accompanying satellites) to award college credits for Indiana secondary school students that earn a score of 3 or higher on College Board s Advanced Placement (AP) examination. Indiana public colleges and universities may require a score higher than 3 to award credits for a course that is a requirement for a student s major If a university chooses to do so, it must still award a student elective credits that count toward his/her overall degree requirements to graduate from college. Families may visit for the most current transfer information. Advanced Placement courses are grade weighted. In order to receive the grade weight, students must receive a grade of C- or higher and take the AP examination in May. Cumulative class ranks and GPA s will be retroactively recalculated for students who do not complete the scheduled AP exams. Book rental fees are usually higher for College Board AP courses because students must purchase their own college textbook. At the present time, the Indiana Department of Education pays for science and math exams for juniors and seniors only. Therefore, there is no exam fee to BHS students in these grade levels for these exams. All other tests require a fee; approximately $91 per test ($91 in 2015). Students receiving free or reduced meal benefits qualify for fee waivers for AP examinations. For a complete course description and other information regarding AP courses go to: Students enrolled in Pre-AP honors and AP courses are expected to complete the summer reading and writing requirements at each level.

In the same manner, the College Board maintains that all students should have access to academically challenging coursework which can prepare them for AP success before they enroll in AP classes. Brownsburg High School is committed to preparing students for AP through Pre-AP classes. Students must complete Pre-AP prerequisite courses prior to enrollment in AP. Transfer students and those wishing to enroll in AP without Pre- AP prerequisites must demonstrate readiness through assessment or other means. In such instances, placement in AP is not guaranteed. The student s best assurance for placement in AP is through success in Pre-AP classes. 10

12 Pre-AP course curricula are aligned with AP and emphasize higher-order thinking skills in problem solving and critical analysis. As students transition from Pre-AP to AP, they are better prepared for the college level standard of work required for success. The following chart outlines the Pre-AP course offerings and their corresponding AP courses: English Mathematics Science Social Studies AP AP English Lit & Comp AP Calculus BC AP Chemistry AP US Gov & Politics AP English Lang & Comp AP Calculus AB AP Physics C AP Macroeconomics AP Statistics AP Biology AP Microeconomics AP Environmental Science AP Psychology AP US History AP World History AP Human Geography Pre-AP Pre-AP English 10 Hon Pre-Cal Hon BC Pre-AP Chemistry I Hon Pre-AP English 10 Hon Pre-AP English 9 Hon Pre-Cal Hon AB Pre-AP Physics I Hon Pre-AP English 9 Hon Algebra II Hon Pre-AP Biology II Hon Students enrolled in Pre-AP honors and AP courses are expected to complete the summer reading and writing requirements at each level. DISTINGUISHED AP SCHOLARS RECOGNITION AP is a rigorous academic program built on the commitment, passion, and hard work of students and educators from both secondary schools and higher education. A 2008 study found that AP students had better four-year college graduation rates than those who did not take AP. % of Students Who Earn a Bachelor s Degree Within 4 Years AP Exam Score Avg.= 4 or 5 50% AP Exam Score Avg.= 3 44% AP Exam Score Avg.= 2 32% Dual Enrollment Courses 24% AP Exam Score Avg.= 1 21% Neither AP or Dual Enrollment Courses 11% Source: Hargrove, Godin & Dodd (2008) Taking AP also increases eligibility for scholarships and makes candidates more attractive to colleges: 31 percent of colleges and universities consider a student's AP experience when making decisions about which students will receive scholarships. 85 percent of selective colleges and universities report that a student's AP experience favorably impacts admissions decisions. Beginning with the class of 2016 and subsequent classes, Brownsburg High School will recognize students who pursue our most rigorous AP curriculum. AP courses are offered in 6 academic disciplines including English, Fine Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and World Language. Students who earn a minimum of 6 AP credits in 3 or more academic disciplines with grades of B- or higher in each semester will be recognized at graduation ceremonies as Distinguished AP Scholars. Students will receive special notation on the high school transcript, a special medallion to adorn the cap and gown, and will be 11

13 recognized in the commencement program publication. Students who earn 10 or more AP credits (also with grades of B- or higher in 3 academic disciplines) will also receive a sash to be worn. The following table outlines the grade levels in which particular AP classes may be taken. Prerequisite policies apply for all AP courses, so please plan accordingly. Please contact the student s guidance counselor with specific questions. English Fine Arts Math Science Social Studies World Lang 9 Statistics World History Art History Statistics Environmental Sci World History 10 Chemistry Human Geography US History* Lang & Comp Art History Statistics Biology US History Spanish 11 Music Theory Calculus AB Environmental Sci Human Geography Physics Psychology Chemistry Lit & Comp Art History Calculus AB Biology US Government Spanish Music Theory Calculus BC Environmental Sci Microeconomics German 12 Studio Art Statistics Physics Macroeconomics French Chemistry Human Geography Chinese Psychology Students are advised to plan a balanced approach to AP selections each year. Students should take advantage of opportunities in grades 9 and 10, if ready, to minimize undue stress by overloading the junior and senior year. This also allows students to pursue other interests including band, choir, art, etc. *Students who take AP World History in Grade 9 may take AP US History one year earlier in Grade DUAL CREDIT COURSES AT BROWNSBURG HIGH SCHOOL Dual credit courses allow students to earn credit toward a high school diploma as well as a college degree. Though these courses may seem expensive for a high school class, they offer a significant savings to many families when compared to tuition at post-secondary institutions. In addition to their financial advantages, dual credit courses prepare students for the rigor of college work, and help many students qualify for an Academic Honors Diploma. BHS offers courses from Vincennes University (VU), Ball State University (BSU), Indiana University (IU), Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), Marian University (MU), and Ivy Tech (IVY). There are a few details to keep in mind when considering a specific dual credit course: Some courses have certain criteria that must be met, such as minimum test scores on the PSAT, SAT, or ACT test. Some courses require that university-specific tests must be passed in order to qualify for dual credit. Prerequisites and testing requirements may be found on page 16. Students must meet entry requirements and take the course for college credit to receive any grade weighting. 12

14 Some courses may transfer as college hours, but do not transfer as the identical course at another university. This is known as undistributed credit. However, in most cases, a class will transfer into the accepting university. See for additional information regarding specific transferability questions. Textbooks for dual credit courses are dictated by the universities and are added to book rental. Be advised college textbooks are expensive. Families may utilize 529 savings plans for dual credit related expenses. Cost per credit hour is set by the university and subject to change.

Senior Academy Cadre Courses Advanced TV & Video Production Cadet Teaching Engineering Design & Development Anatomy and Physiology* Advanced Business Management Professional Career Internship Biomedical Innovations* (DECA) Early Childhood Center *Cadre optional students may take this course without the senior project component. COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS Due to the wide variations in college entrance requirements, students are urged to check with the admission office of the chosen college and visit the individual college websites when planning their high school programs. College catalogs are available online at most college websites. Most colleges require at least 28 of the credits earned for high school graduation to be devoted to academic courses. Be aware that college entrance requirements do change. The 11th grade and 12 th grade years are when students should take the SAT and ACT college readiness tests. Additionally, juniors have the opportunity to earn scholarship monies through the National Merit program by taking the PSAT Examination. For more information about the SAT and ACT programs, please visit and To prepare for college, students should do the following: Take recommended college preparatory courses. The preferred curriculum for the best preparation for college is the Academic Honors Diploma. Indiana Core 40 is the minimum standard to be followed. Maintain the best possible grade point average (GPA). Take the PSAT test in the fall of the sophomore year. Beginning in 2015, all juniors will retake the PSAT in the fall. Juniors are recommended to then take the SAT and/or ACT in the spring, and once again in late fall of the senior year. Have SAT and ACT scores sent to Brownsburg High School (CEEB school code is ) as well as to colleges being considered. Apply to colleges early during the fall of the senior year. Some colleges and some highly competitive programs require early application. Complete the FAFSA form after January 1 and submit by March 10, to be considered for state and federal financial aid. Visit for more information on the FAFSA. NAVIANCE - Naviance Family Connection is a web-based program that promotes college and workplace readiness for high school students. All Brownsburg High School students and their parents have access to Naviance Family Connection. Incoming ninth grade students will receive their registration information during freshman orientation. Family Connection applications include: 15

17 College Planner Students can research colleges, enrichment programs, and scholarships. They can access school forms and can request transcripts and school profiles to be sent electronically to more than 1,000 colleges. Career Planner Students can learn more about themselves, research careers, and understand the academic preparation required to ensure workplace readiness. GRADE 9 AND 10 COLLEGE AND CAREER PLANNING AT BROWNSBURG HIGH SCHOOL It may be difficult for 9th and 10th grade students to choose a specific Career Major Pathway; however, the kinds of course choices and the success at the 9th and 10th grade level begins to form the career pathway choice for the eleventh grade. For this reason, the high school curriculum becomes a 9th and 10th grade formative/evaluative program, and the 11th and 12th grade becomes a career-focused preparatory program. All 9th and 10th grade students will schedule English, mathematics, social studies, science, physical education (9), speech (10) and health (10). Students will take End of Course Assessments (ECA) after the completion of Algebra I, Biology and English 10. Electives chosen during these foundation years should parallel the career cluster and diploma level desired. College readiness testing for this formative stage includes the PSAT test which is taken in the fall of the sophomore year. GRADE 11 AND 12 COLLEGE AND CAREER PLANNING AT BROWNSBURG HIGH SCHOOL The decision for the proper program concentration requires team planning for the 11th &12th grade years. This should involve the student, parent, and high school personnel. Post high school educational experiences in today s technical world will be mandatory for all students regardless of program selection. Individual preparation, ability, interest, and motivation will determine success during one s entire lifetime. It must be the goal of the educational team (studentparent-school) to correctly place each student in the courses and sequence level of their chosen Career Pathway. Each Career Pathway has a degree of flexibility built into it for supporting electives and core course academic leveling. The Career Major is composed of classes which offer a sequential preparation of knowledge and skills in the core content area. When successfully completed, these courses should present opportunities at graduation to advance to the next level of continuing education and/or employment. As you choose the Career Major of interest, remember to take into account past demonstrated ability in core-proficiency content classes (math, english, science, and social studies.) Choice of a specific Career Pathway and supporting electives must be attainable based on demonstrated past academic success and an attitude of sincere interest. The Senior Academy Cadre program is linked to courses with career-related experiences and a capstone Senior Project. COLLEGE AND CAREER PATHWAYS College and Career Pathways provide a way for schools to organize instruction and student experiences around twelve broad categories that encompass virtually all occupations from entry through professional levels. Students may utilize Naviance Family Connection to research pathways and create 4-Year Course Plans based upon an intended pathway. Explore Careers & Clusters may be found under the Careers tab in Naviance. LearnMore Indiana is an additional online resource with career exploration information. LearnMore may be accessed at Indiana College & Career Pathway Courses by Cluster The state-approved Career Clusters and College & Career Pathways, along with the sequence of courses recommended for each Pathway and the Course Frameworks can be accessed at below or through Naviance Family Connection. Agriculture Architecture & Construction Arts, AV Technology & Communication Business & Marketing Education & Training Health Science Hospitality & Human Services Information Technology Manufacturing Public Safety STEM Transportation 16

18 ENROLLMENT POLICIES EDUCATIONAL RECORDS TRANSCRIPTS AND REPORT CARDS Brownsburg High School has transitioned to electronic submission of transcripts. Students who need transcripts sent to colleges and universities make their requests in Naviance. Alumni should make their requests via Parchment.com. The counselor will then confirm the request and forward the transcript electronically. This transcript will serve as an official transcript when this process is followed. Parents and students are encouraged to use PowerSchool to check grades and to print report cards. PowerSchool user names and passwords are provided at registration. Paper report cards are no longer provided. If you need your PowerSchool user name or password please contact the administrative assistant of the grade level team. TRANSFER STUDENTS-CREDITS Brownsburg High School will evaluate and accept credits of students transferring based on the following policy: 1. If the transferring student attended a school in Indiana or another state, approved/accredited by that state s department of education, coursework will be accepted at face value if those courses are approved curriculum offerings. 2. For credit or coursework to be accepted from a nonpublic school (including home schools) there must be verification that: a. The course was taught by a certified teacher. b. Course content is comparable to corporation-established courses of study. All students entering from a nonpublic school may be given individual achievement tests or end-of-course examinations in core subjects as an aid in placement. Recognition of credits or coursework from a nonpublic school shall be granted when the above-stated criteria are met and upon satisfactory completion of any achievement tests given by the administration. 3. Only grades awarded for courses taken at the corporation or from a school accredited by the Indiana Department of Education or such departments in other states shall be considered in class ranking and for entering on the transcript. If credits from a non-accredited school are granted, no grades will be entered on the transcript or considered for class ranking. PERMANENT RECORD MAINTENANCE The Registrar will maintain two copies of each student s permanent record. Copies of records will be released according to the Family Rights and Privacy Acts. Expelled students will have the notation I.C placed on the high school transcript and will receive a "W" as the final grade in enrolled courses unless otherwise directed by the expulsion examiner. FULL TIME ENROLLMENT Students must maintain at least six (6) credit generating classes per semester in order to maintain a timely progress toward high school graduation. The Superintendent or School Board will not grant approval per IC for students to enroll in less than six (6) credit generating courses unless an I.E.P. or 504 plan is in effect. Students must attend a minimum of six semesters to receive a diploma. SCHEDULING POLICIES ONLINE HIGH SCHOOL COURSE CREDIT AS AN EXTENSION OF THE BHS CURRICULUM A student desiring to earn high school credit through online coursework should give this choice careful thought and discuss this option with the high school counselor. Prior approval is required for the acceptance of online credit toward graduation requirements. Online courses that are requested to replace courses that are teacher-led at Brownsburg High School will not be approved unless an academic necessity is warranted. In these instances, students will be required to complete a 4-year academic course plan documenting the need for online course flexibility. 17

19 A maximum of four (4) credits through online or other correspondence courses may be applied toward graduation. It is recommended that students enroll in no more than two courses in this manner at a given time. Likewise, it is recommended that the coursework be completed during the high school semester timeline. Cost of online courses is the responsibility of the family. Only courses that are offered by accredited institutions approved by the State of Indiana will be approved. Brownsburg High School students who are potential NCAA Division I or II athletes should verify that all online course enrollment meets NCAA eligibility guidelines. See website for more information: COLLEGE COURSES NOT TAKEN AT BROWNSBURG HIGH SCHOOL A student may enroll in on-campus or online courses offered by an accredited college or university in grades 11 or 12. All grades will be transcripted in a manner indicating that they were earned through an eligible post-secondary institution. In order for credits earned directly through a college or university to be applied toward high school graduation requirements, approval is required by the guidance counselor prior to enrollment in the course. If approved, grades earned from such courses may be factored into the high school cumulative GPA, but will not factor into class rank - except in rare circumstances where a student has exhausted an academic department s curriculum. A grade weight will only be granted in courses for which there is a Brownsburg High School equivalent that is also weighted. COURSE RECOMMENDATIONS At Brownsburg High School, student course placement is based upon a variety of factors including student performance in preceding classes, standardized test scores, potential, and teacher recommendation. Teacher recommendation is a required prerequisite for many courses. Recommendations by teachers are greatly valued as they have personal knowledge of their students and of the curriculum in their departments. Procedures have been developed to address disagreements between families and staff regarding course recommendations. Students may submit a Course Recommendation Override Form to their team office for review. In most cases, a meeting will be coordinated with the student and parent, counselor or assistant principal, and the department head of the academic course in question to determine final placement. A student that enrolls in a course that is contrary to the final staff recommendation may not withdraw from the course at a later date without receiving a WF on the academic transcript. ALTERNATIVE PE I & II CREDIT The Indiana State Board of Education allows local high schools flexibility in determining the manner in which Physical Education proficiencies may be met. In order to maximize educational scheduling opportunities for students, Brownsburg High School has adopted a policy through which Physical Education I & II credit may be earned through alternative means. Alternative PE credit options will begin with the school year. Credits will not be granted for any previous school year. A complete season of the following student activities has been approved for Alternative PE Credit: o o o o o Any BHS sponsored IHSAA sanctioned sport (Freshman athletes are encouraged to enroll in the PE Athletic Development course during the freshman year) BHS Cheerleading Marching Band Color Guard Starlight Voices/Competitive Show Choir (grade 10 only) Students may earn one (1) credit in PE I per school year for one (1) activity listed above. A student may repeat the same activity during the sophomore year to receive one (1) credit in PE II to fulfill the PE requirements for graduation. A student may complete two (2) different activities from the list above in the same year to receive one (1) credit in PE I and one (1) credit in PE II, thus fulfilling the PE requirements for graduation. Both PE I and PE II credits must be earned by the end of the sophomore year. 18

20 Retroactive credits will not be awarded. Student activity in any event not listed above is not eligible for the Alternative PE Credit. A complete season is defined as: first practice to final event. The student must remain on the active roster for the entire season or the duration of the activity. The student must attend all required practices, rehearsals, or competitions as dictated by the activity s coach or director. The student will participate regularly in physical activity, demonstrated by participation in over 90% of group activities (injury free). Injuries or disciplinary or academic suspensions that result in withdrawal or dismissal from the team or activity will result in forfeiture of Alternative PE credit as determined by the coach or director. Students with injuries or those who are removed or withdrawn from their activity may not be placed into a regular PE course after the second week of a semester. Alternative PE credit and Athletic Development PE credit may not be earned in the same semester. A grade of A will be granted for the Alternative PE credit to all students who meet the requirements listed above. Additional Student Requirements & Information: Students must indicate their desire to earn Alternative PE credit in PowerSchool during the course registration process in February. Students must submit the Brownsburg High School Application for Alternative PE I or PE II Credit form by March 13, Forms will be distributed during scheduling sessions or may be downloaded from the BHS Guidance Office website. The BHS Director of Guidance will maintain forms and will verify team or activity rosters with the athletic office or activity directors. PE credits will be entered into PowerSchool once seasons have been completed and verified. Students that do not participate in the activity indicated on their application should notify their counselor prior to the start of the semester in which the activity takes place so that they may be enrolled in a regular PE course. Alternative PE credits may not count as an enrolled course toward IHSAA athletic eligibility. BHS requires that students enroll in a minimum of 6 credit generating courses during each academic semester. CHANGES IN PRE-ENROLLED CLASS SELECTIONS - DEADLINES The course offerings at Brownsburg High School are based upon student requests during pre-enrollment. Therefore, it is necessary for students to determine their class choices with a commitment to complete those classes. In the event a student would find it necessary to request a change in their course selections, students should make an appointment to see their guidance counselor. All requests for schedule changes must be made by May 1, Requests for changes between March 15 and May 1 will be honored if space is still available in the course. The guidance staff may need to use alternate classes if (1) an original class choice is not offered due to insufficient enrollment or (2) the student has selected two classes which conflict on the student s schedule. Once schedules are built for the entire school, counselors may change a student s schedule to obtain balanced class sizes. DROP AND/OR ADD COURSES If a student wishes to request a schedule change that involves adding or dropping a course, he/she must complete a Schedule Change Request form within the first FIVE days of a semester. Schedule changes are discouraged and such requests will be given close scrutiny. All changes must be approved by the grade level team (assistant principal, counselor, academic coach). There will be no schedule changes to accommodate a teacher preference. Students may not drop a class and then request to be a teacher assistant. Drops after the first FIVE days of a semester will result in a WF for the course. Schedule change requests will be considered for the following reasons: Request to take courses to qualify for the Academic Honors Diploma Failure of a course required for graduation Add a seventh course to replace a study hall Failure of a course with a particular teacher; student has been assigned the same teacher for the exact same course Drop a seventh course for a study hall 19
