8 COUNSELING DEPARTMENT ACADEMIC SUCCESS The single most important factor for a child s academic success is parent support. The outcome is positive for all involved when children know that their parents/guardians value their education and will seek resources to help them develop study habits that suit their style of learning. The following services are available at AHS: Teacher Conferences students are strongly encouraged to work with their teachers to improve their grades. Formal student/parent/guardian conferences can be scheduled by calling Parent/student portal internet access to: grades, progress reports, class assignments, and attendance.

9 COUNSELING DEPARTMENT COURSE SELECTION FOR HIGH SCHOOL The selection of classes is one of the most important decisions to be made during the high school years. It is essential that students choose subjects carefully and with a goal in mind. In the spring, each student meets individually with a counselor to review his/her transcript and select courses for the following school year. Counselors advise students on meeting both the Arcadia High School graduation and college admission requirements. Counselors also review CAHSEE requirements and proficiencies. In addition, counselors provide advisement on credit recovery and grade improvement options. Course selection materials and requests must be signed by a parent and returned by the due date posted in order for students to receive a schedule of classes. Students will be given an opportunity to request changes to their next year s program during Program Adjustment Week, scheduled for the last week of May. Following Program Adjustment Week, requests for changes will only be made in accordance with the rubric listed below. The last day to request a drop from Honors and AP courses is July 6, No drops from Honors and AP courses will be accepted during Apache Days. CHANGING OR DROPPING CLASSES During the first four weeks of a semester, students may request a change in their schedule according to the guidelines in the table below. Changes require a petition form which is available at the Counselor of the Day desk. Due to limitations in the master schedule, changes are not guaranteed. Therefore, the Counseling Department encourages students to select their coursework very carefully. If problems arise, parents and students are advised to speak with the classroom teacher to identify strategies for success before seeking assistance from the counselor. A list of teacher addresses and phone numbers is available on the Arcadia High School website at ahs.ausd.net Please note that requests for teacher changes will NOT be honored. 1 st SEM.

10 COUNSELING DEPARTMENT Student Request for Private College Recommendation and Transcripts A processing fee is charged for each private college or scholarship transcript. Requests for counselor recommendations must be submitted to the Career Center from September 29, 2014 to October 30, College Application Deadlines: Students must give counselors four working weeks advanced notice when requesting letters of recommendation for colleges or scholarships in order to guarantee that deadlines are met. For example, students applying to colleges with a November 1 st Early Decision Deadline, must submit their request for letters of recommendation by October 1 st. The processing fee covers the Arcadia High School official transcript, the AHS school profile, the completion of the necessary counselor recommendation forms and the midyear report if applicable. A maximum of eight letters per student can be processed. Length of School Day Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors are required to be enrolled in six periods unless the administration has approved an alternative schedule. Senior Schedule: California Education Code requires that seniors be enrolled in a minimum of five courses per semester or the equivalent number of courses per quarter. Regional Occupation Programs (ROP), Independent Study, Special Education, and Work Experience may be used in the fulfillment of the five course requirement. No Class With counselor and parent approval, a senior may elect to enroll in No Class either first or sixth period. No credit is given for a No Class. Requests for No Class must be made during the programming session in the spring, prior to the senior year. Students who have met all subject requirements and have earned credits by the end of the first semester of their junior year will be eligible to request one period of a No Class for their senior year. Students who have met all subject requirements and have earned credits by the end of the first semester of their junior year will be eligible to request two periods of a No Class for their senior year (one each semester). Requests for No Class must be made during the programming session in the spring, prior to the senior year. Summer School Due to the state s reduction in funding for K-12 education, the Arcadia Unified School District will not be offering summer programs for credit recovery, intervention, or proficiency classes for students currently enrolled in Kindergarten to 10 th grade. Current 11 th grade students who are in danger of not graduating based on an F in required classes for graduation are eligible for a limited non-tuition summer program in order to complete the minimum requirements for graduation. High school counselors will be contacting these 11 th grade students to arrange for summer and alternative programs to address credit recovery in order to graduate. Students enrolled in grades 9-11 who are short credits for graduation and students in grades 9-11 who wish to re-take a course for improvement grade are encouraged to explore fee-based accredited opportunities for summer programs including the Arcadia Educational Foundation Summer School. A maximum of 10 credits will be allowed to be placed on the Arcadia High School transcript each summer. This includes Arcadia High School classes, AEF classes, online classes, Jaime Escalante Math Program, UCLA extension courses for High School Students and courses taken at other accredited schools or any combination. Students who complete a course during the summer will be scheduled for the next sequential course. Students are not able to take any initiatory English course outside of the Arcadia Unified School District. The Arcadia Educational Foundation offers courses for credit and non-credit in academics and sports. All courses are tuition based and designed for initiatory credit (advancement), improvement of skills, or make-up for 9-11 grades. Successful achievement in summer school may accomplish the following: Make-up for deficient graduation credits Improve GPA for eligibility purposes Ease the stress on student scheduling during the regular school year Accelerate student progress toward graduation and college entrance requirements For questions regarding AEF summer school, please call the AEF office at or them at Alternate Credits Toward Graduation Per Administrative Regulations for Alternative Credits Towards Graduation. In order to meet individual student needs and encourage all students to complete their high school education, the Governing Board desires to provide flexibility in the completion of prescribed courses in accordance with law.

14 COLLEGE and CAREER PLANNING Arcadia High School Advanced Placement and Honors Program Access to Honors and Advanced Placement at Arcadia High School: Arcadia High School believes that, based on their academic interests, students should have an opportunity to access rigorous curriculum through honors and Advanced Placement courses. This philosophy is based on the College Board Equity and Access Policy that states: The College Board strongly encourages educators to make equitable access a guiding principle for their AP programs by giving all willing and academically prepared students the opportunity to participate in AP. We encourage the elimination of barriers that restrict access to AP students for ethnic, racial and socioeconomic groups that have been traditionally underserved. Schools should make every effort to ensure their AP classes to reflect the diversity of their student population. The College Board also believes that all students should have access to academically challenging course work before they enroll in AP classes, which can prepare them for AP success. It is through a commitment to equitable preparation and access that true equity and excellence can be achieved. Arcadia High School will hold a night meeting in the Spring to give students and parents an opportunity to review their options and to explain the new No drop policy. Students who enroll in AP or Honors as well as their parents or guardians will be required to sign a contract. 11

Required a-g courses must be completed with a grade of C or better. Courses in which grades of D/F are earned may be repeated. The highest grade will be used in the GPA calculation. UC only allows a course to be repeated one time for grade replacement. * Coursework completed in 7th or 8th grade can be used to satisfy "c" and "e" requirements. ** It is best to prepare for both UC and the CSU by completing two laboratory courses from the d subject area. Information on this matrix is accurate as of September 2, For current updates and changes in admission requirements, if there are any, contact the specific university admission office.

16 California State University (CSU) VALIDATION OF SUBJECT REQUIREMENTS BY OTHER COURSES University of California (UC) Mathematics Language Other than English (LOTE) A grade of C or better in the second semester of a mathematics course validates a D/F in the first semester. A grade of C or better in the first semester of Algebra II validates both semesters of Algebra I. A grade of C or better in Trigonometry or Pre-calculus validates the entire high school college preparatory requirement.*** A grade of C or better in statistics will validate only Algebra I and Algebra II, not Geometry. A grade of C or better in a higher-level course validates a lower-level course. A higher-level LOTE course can validate the appropriate number of years based on the level. A college course can validate a high school LOTE course. The level of validation depends on the college course prerequisite and description. Refer to the CCC a-g course list and review the Category column. Chemistry A grade of C or better in the second semester of chemistry will validate a D in the first semester. A grade of C or better in the second semester of chemistry will not validate a D in the first semester. UC does not allow the validation of Chemistry. VALIDATION OF D/F GRADES IN REQUIRED COURSES Courses in which grades of D/F are earned may be validated in the areas of Math and Language Other Than English by successful completion of higher-level coursework.*** VALIDATION OF SUBJECT REQUIREMENTS BY TEST SCORES Required "a-g" courses may be satisfied with appropriate test scores on SAT Subject Tests, Advanced Placement exams, and designated International Baccalaureate exams. A list of acceptable tests and scores is available on UC and CSU websites. HIGH SCHOOL GPA HONORS POINTS TEST SCORES ACT/SAT ACT or SAT Reasoning Calculate GPA using only a-g approved courses taken after the 9 th grade, including summer courses. All a-g courses and grades must be reported. Maximum of 8 extra grade points from four yearlong courses (8 semesters) awarded for approved high school honors, AP, or IB courses and transferable college courses. No more than two yearlong courses (4 semesters) completed in 10 th grade can earn honors points. Test required for CSU applicants to impacted campuses. Test required for CSU applicants to non-impacted campuses, who have earned an "a-g" GPA of less than 3.0. CSU combines best critical reading and math scores from multiple sittings of SAT; may combine best subscores from multiple ACT tests to calculate a best composite. The ACT Plus Writing or the SAT Reasoning Test is required for UC applicants. UC uses the highest composite score from a single sitting of the ACT Plus Writing or total score from the SAT Reasoning Test.
