Eastern Ave. Suite 330 Las Vegas, NV (702) (775) CORE BELIEFS VISION - MISSION NVVA Core Beliefs: Every child will learn basic core knowledge and essential skills. Every parent/guardian will have quality educational options. Every person in our organization will be part of a team with a shared vision. Every time we will be accountable for results. Everything we do will be the right thing. NVVA Vision: Our vision is to create a high-performance public school program that equips our students with the educational tools of tomorrow, thereby providing our students with all the opportunities they need to succeed in life while creating a new model for a 21st century public school. NVVA Mission Statement: The mission of the Nevada Virtual Academy is to provide Nevada students with a world class education grounded in high academic standards, which will help them achieve their full academic and social potential and become productive members of society. The core philosophy of the Nevada Virtual Academy is that all young people can achieve academic excellence if they receive rigorous instruction, high standards, informed guidance, and individual attention. NVVA offers a dynamic, flexible, and traditional curriculum that teaches children to be critical thinkers in a fast-changing global world. 3

4 INTRODUCTION The courses that will be offered at NVVA for the upcoming school year are courses selected by students during spring preregistration (elective survey). Generally, the courses listed in this registration guide will only be offered in the curriculum for the next school year if 25 or more students pre-register for a course. If during final registration, too few students actually enroll in a course, it usually will be canceled and those students will be rescheduled into their alternate elective course. No student will receive credit for repeating a semester of a course that has been passed previously. Students will be scheduled into classes selected during pre-registration unless those classes are filled or canceled. COURSES THAT STUDENTS SELECT THIS SPRING ARE THE COURSES THEY WILL BE REQUIRED TO ATTEND NEXT YEAR. Choose classes carefully. NVVA students will be computer registered based on the spring registration process. NO SCHEDULE CHANGE REQUESTS WILL BE GRANTED OTHER THAN THOSE GOVERNED BY THE POLICY STATEMENT PRINTED BELOW. In order to effectively register for classes for next year, read and follow these simple guidelines: READ this entire course registration guide and the course descriptions before you register. Be certain that prerequisites for selected courses have been met. DISCUSS your course selection with your parents, teachers, and your counselor before registration. Many courses require a teacher recommendation and signature. CHOOSE courses that will challenge you and give you the best preparation for your future education and employment. COMPLETE the elective survey that was sent to you in a kmail. Choose 5 alternative choices. In the event some of your electives are filled or cancelled, you will be assigned your alternative choice(s) in the order listed. If no choices are listed, you will be placed in whatever class is available. Students planning to attend summer school will be pre-registered based on the next logical course sequence according to their spring schedule. UNDERSTAND you will be expected to remain in year-long courses for the entire school year. Exceptions (graduation requirements, misplacement) will be handled through the regular schedule change procedure. Seniors must apply for a reduced class load (shortened day) during preregistration by completing the appropriate documents. Reduced class loads will not be approved after the school year begins. SCHEDULE CHANGE POLICY Since much advanced planning and preparation are provided for each student prior to registration, schedule changes will not be made after registration. Class changes will not be granted to accommodate a change in a student s lunch period, a student s failure in a class, or a request to or from a specific instructor. Due to the State of Nevada Department of Education Guidelines, no student may change a class and receive credit after the third week of the semester. Requests for schedule changes are considered only during the first three weeks of the semester and are granted only for the following specific educational reasons: A. Minimum competency preparation for the Nevada Proficiency Exam B. Graduation requirement fulfillment C. Misplacement in an academic area D. Successful completion of summer school course work; student must submit summer school transcript to counselor The administration may, due to increased/decreased enrollment and staff changes, balance course sections by transferring students from one class and/or teacher to another section. This procedure is known as Leveling. Every effort will be made to ensure a smooth transition for students. COURSE SELECTION Parents and students should be aware of NVVA s commitment to providing a rigorous and challenging curriculum. Students are reminded to choose their classes carefully and should discuss course selections with their parents, teachers and counselors before pre registration. Student placement will be based on several factors: (a) teacher recommendation, (b) student's academic record, (c) interest of the student, and (d) parental guidance. Every effort will be made to appropriately place students in courses which coincide with the student's assessed ability. Students will not be permitted to select courses below their ability. If a student does not meet the pre-requisite, he/she may 4

5 challenge the course by signing a course contract printed on the pre-registration worksheet. PLEASE NOTE THAT A STUDENT WHO CHALLENGES A COURSE MUST REMAIN IN THE CHALLENGED CLASS ALL YEAR. PREREQUISITES Prerequisites are listed in the Course Catalog to help students and parents make the best educational decisions possible. Students must meet these prerequisites to enroll in a course or request permission to challenge the course. Both semesters of a prerequisite course must be successfully completed. REQUIRED CLASS LOAD The State of Nevada, NAC , requires all high school students be enrolled in classes as follows: 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students must be enrolled in six classes or the equivalent of six periods per day. 12th grade students must be enrolled in a minimum of four classes or the equivalent of four periods per day. Although Concurrent Courses, Credit Retrieval and Dual Credit are considered equivalent coursework, students must receive prior approval of the counselor and administration. Students on a reduced schedule must provide their own transportation and must leave campus after their last class. Students on a reduced schedule who loiter on campus will be enrolled in a class. All schedules must be contiguous. COURSE CHANGES All students must be enrolled in the maximum number of courses as prescribed by state regulations. Students may request schedule changes within the first 14 days of the semester. NVVA does not permit a withdrawal from a course during the semester. MATRICULATION OF STUDENTS Grade classification for high school students will be determined by years in school, not on credit earned. Students will be classified to the next grade level at the end of each school year. CLASS FEES Elective class fees are charged for select elective classes where students complete special projects or use specific software. If there is an inability to pay a course fee, please let your counselor know so that the course may be removed from your schedule. REPEATING A COURSE NVVA is a no-repeat high school. If a student fails a course at NVVA, he/she must repeat it outside of the current school day at an external credit source. The counseling office will provide alternative credit retrieval options for students that must retake a failed course. TESTING PROGRAM Nevada Proficiency Exams are required for graduation. All students are required to pass the Nevada Proficiency exams in the areas of Math, Science, Reading, and Writing. For information on testing for college, see the COLLEGE READINESS ASSESSMENTS section on Page 15. PROCTORED EXAMS FOR CORE CREDIT BEARING COURSES All Nevada Virtual Academy students will be required to take proctored final exams for all credit bearing, core courses. These exams will be administered by Proctor U, a third-party proctoring agency. Students will be required to set up their own accounts with Proctor U and sign up for their own exams during the school-assigned testing window. Students MUST complete their final exams through this procedure to receive credit for the course. DRIVER SAFETY Nevada Revised Statute #483 requires teenagers under the age of 18 to complete a driver education course before obtaining a driver license. The bill requires everyone under age 18 to have 30 hours of classroom instruction and 50 hours of behind-thewheel experience, which can be completed with a parent or guardian. Teenagers must be 15 1/2 years old to obtain a learner's permit from the Department of Motor Vehicles in order to practice driving. Students may get their learner's permit before taking a driver education course but may not receive the actual driver license until both the course and the behind-the-wheel practice are completed. NVVA offers a semester Driver Safety certification course for students who are at least 15 years of age. Please see Additional Electives in Department Course Offerings for more information. 5

6 ACADEMIC PROGRAMS CORE CURRICULUM In Core courses, topics are broken into discrete modules that are taught in tandem with the framework students need to develop strong study skills. Rich, engaging content with interactive demonstrations and activities help students absorb and retain information. All students at NVVA are placed into the Core Curriculum unless otherwise recommended for a different course of study COMPREHENSIVE CURRICULUM In Comprehensive courses, students do more extensive writing and research projects, and tackle problems that require more analytical thinking. Course projects and activities also demand more independent thinking and self-discipline than projects in Core courses. These courses are approved for NCAA eligibility for Division 1 and Division 2 and are ONLY available to students seeking NCAA eligibility. Exceptions (all students may take these courses): PreCalculus/Trigonometry, Probability and Statistics, Calculus, and Physics. HONORS CURRICULUM Honors courses hold students to a greater degree of accountability, and demand even greater independence and self-discipline. Students synthesize and evaluate information and concepts from multiple sources and read texts typically assigned in collegelevel courses. Students also demonstrate college-level writing in essays that require analysis of primary and secondary sources, responsible use of evidence, and comprehensive citation of sources. Honors classes are classified as accelerated courses designed for students who plan to apply to colleges or universities with admission requirements that are competitive. Each Honors course successfully completed (up to a total of 14 courses or 28 semesters) receives a weighted factor of.025 points added to the semester grade point average. Correspondence work, fifth-year academic work, and special approved programs, such as the Early Studies Program and credit by exam, will not be accepted for Honors credit. The Honors GPA will be based on an accumulation of course work for which the student receives high school credit. Students and parents/guardians are required to sign a contract agreeing to remain in the course for the duration of the school year. These courses are approved by the NCAA towards the core requirements for Division 1 and Division 2. ADVANCED PLACEMENT CURRICULUM (AP) AP courses are college-level courses that follow curriculum specified by the College Board. These courses are designed to prepare students for success on AP exams, providing students the opportunity to earn credit at most of the nation s colleges and universities. In the spring of each school year, a cumulative exam is administered for each AP course. AP exams are graded on a scale of 1 (minimum) to 5 (maximum). The cost for each exam is paid for by the student. University credit is generally granted for test scores of 3 and above. A score of 1 or 2, however, enhances the opportunity for scholarships and university admission. Students enrolled in AP courses are expected to take the appropriate AP exams. AP/IB courses receive a weighted factor of.050. Based upon a student s AP test scores, he/she may earn as many as 18 semester hours of college/university credit. This represents a significant financial savings to the parents/guardians of the student. AP courses include a companion AP Exam Review course, that provides practice for multiple choice exams and essay writing, as well as provides students an individualized study plan based on their results. Students and parents/guardians are required to sign a contract agreeing to remain in the course for the duration of the school year. These courses are approved by the NCAA towards the core requirements for Division 1 and Division 2. Areas in which AP courses are offered at NVVA are listed below: Biology Calculus Chemistry Computer Science English Language and Composition English Literature and Composition Environmental Science French Macroeconomics Microeconomics Physics Psychology Spanish Statistics US Government US History World History 6

7 HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE)/Millennium Course of Study Nevada Virtual Academy expects all students to meet the requirements of the NSHE/Millennium Course of Study.

Students who choose to enroll in only Honors level courses will receive a weighted grade point factor of.025 points for twenty-eight semesters (14 classes) of Honors courses. The highest possible GPA under this system is Advantages of the Honors Course Offerings Most competitive colleges and universities consider not only students grades, but also the academic rigor evidenced by courses listed on the transcript, letters of recommendation from teachers and counselors, and SAT I or ACT scores. Enrollment in the Honors Program will assist students in their preparation for college entrance exams. The weighted GPA is used when determining ranking in class. Students may take Honors courses even if they have not chosen to complete the requirements for the Honors Diploma. Individual Learning Plan (ILP) A four year Individual Learning Plan has been implemented with all students during the school year and will continue to be implemented with each freshman class thereafter. This plan sets forth specific educational goals that students intend to achieve before graduation. Academic plans include the designation of a career pathway, a four year high school course of study, and post-secondary planning. The plan includes students and parents: Working in consultation with a school counselor to develop the academic plan Signing the academic plan (both parent and student must sign) Reviewing the plan yearly and revising when necessary The Individual Learning Plan will be used as a guide to manage the student s education development and course selection in alignment with an identified course of study. The plan is easily accessible from the kmail sent to the student after the ILP was completed for regular review and revision as necessary.

(Option 2) An individualized programs (special education) student may earn an adjusted high school diploma: a. Upon completion of 22 ½ units in special education and/or regular courses. b. The IEP committee may exempt the student from successful completion of the Nevada Proficiency Examination, however, all students are required to take state-mandated exams. Our philosophy embraces the inclusion of all students into the general curriculum to the fullest extent appropriate. 12

13 GRADUATION VALEDICTORIAN & SALUTATORIAN Valedictorian status is awarded to the student(s) earning the highest grade point average in the graduating class. Salutatorian status is awarded to the student(s) earning the second highest grade point average in the class. Candidates for the valedictorian/salutatorian designations will be identified at the end of the fall semester of their senior year. The final ranking will be based on any and all completed high school credit granting courses, including those courses which receive the weighted grade point factor (GPA). Final valedictorian(s) and salutatorian(s) will be determined upon the completion of all high school credit course work through the eighth semester. GRADUATION CEREMONY RECOGNITION Graduation attire Graduates will wear matte black gowns purchased from Oak Hall with a black/orange tassel on the cap. POST GRADUATION PLANNING MILITARY INFORMATION Counselors can advise students on military careers and scholarship availability. They can also help you locate military recruiters to help students make decisions, write contracts, determine eligibility, and guarantee job training. ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) is available for interested students through the military recruitment offices. This test helps define abilities and aptitude for future careers. COMMUNITY COLLEGE SYSTEM INFORMATION Community colleges, sometimes called junior colleges, offer two-year programs which lead to an Associate of Arts degree and/or a Certificate of Achievement. A high school diploma or its equivalent is recommended for admission. COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY INFORMATION Minimum graduation requirements may not necessarily qualify students for admission to the college of their choice. For information concerning specific admission requirements, students may consult school counselors, reference Pathfinder or Nevada Career Information Systems, and college and university directories and/or college catalogs located online from various schools. COLLEGE PREP PROGRAM The Nevada Virtual Academy counseling staff strongly recommends the following as a minimum college preparatory program: 4 credits in English to include Literary Analysis and Composition I & II, American Literature, and British & World Literature 4 credits in math to include Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and PreCalculus/Trigonometry 3 credits of lab science to include Biology, Chemistry, and Physics 3 credits in social studies to include World History, U.S. History, and U.S. Government 2 to 3 credits in the same foreign language Computer Literacy 13

14 COLLEGE READINESS ASSESSMENTS It is recommended that students take the PSAT with their ZONED HIGH SCHOOL (at the cost of the student) in the fall of their 10 th grade and/or 11 th grade years. Taking the PSAT in the sophomore year also prepares the student for the SAT. The PSAT taken as a junior (at the cost of the student) is used to identify National Merit Scholarship Semi-finalists. The final stage of pre-college testing involves taking the ACT and/or SAT in the spring of the student s junior year, as most four-year colleges/universities require either test for admission. In addition, some colleges/universities require a minimum score on the SAT and/or ACT to determine placement in freshman English and math courses. Finally, some universities determine scholarship eligibility on ACT and/or SAT results. Note: It may be necessary to retake the ACT and/or SAT to increase the student s score. This may enable a student to avoid placement in a remedial math and/or English college course. Remedial courses at Nevada state colleges/universities provide no college credit and are not paid for by the Millennium Scholarship program. COLLEGE FINANCIAL AID There are four basic types of financial aid available to help defray the costs of college education. 1. Scholarships are monetary awards the student earns and does not have to repay. The student s high school course selection (including AP and Honors courses), grade point average, financial need, and college entrance examination scores (ACT, SAT) weigh heavily in determining recipients. 2. Grants are monetary awards based solely on need. Need is determined from information on the family financial aid form. Grants need not be repaid. 3. Work study is employment on or near campus on a part-time basis. Often the university or college makes an effort to place the student in a job related to his/her major. 4. Student loans are low-interest monies granted on the basis of need. A loan must be repaid. This is a very general outline on financial aid. For information on specific scholarships or programs, please contact a school counselor. Nevada Virtual Academy hosts a financial aid presentation each year for students and parents/guardians. It is recommended that parents complete the online FAFSA form at GOVERNOR GUINN MILLENNIUM SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM The State of Nevada s Governor Guinn Millennium Scholarship Program provides financial support to Nevada s high school graduates who plan to attend an eligible Nevada community college, state college, or university. You may receive up to a maximum award of $10,000 for undergraduate coursework during the six years following your high school graduation. There is no application form to complete. If you meet all Millennium Scholarship requirements upon high school graduation, Nevada Virtual Academy will submit your name at the end of June to the Office of the State Treasurer. You will receive an award notification in mid to late July. Policy guidelines and requirements for eligibility can be obtained by calling or at Please note that this information is subject to any changes in state law, policies adopted by the NSHE Board of Regents, availability of funding, and any related matters hereto. NCAA INITIAL ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS In order to participate in Division I or Division II collegiate athletics, students must register with the NCAA Eligibility Center (www.eligibilitycenter.org). This should be initiated in the student s junior year. Core Courses NCAA Division I requires 16 core courses. NCAA Division II currently requires 14 core courses. Division II will require 16 core courses for students enrolling on or after August 1, See the charts below. NCAA Division I will require 10 core courses to be completed prior to the seventh semester (seven of the 10 must be a combination of English, math or natural or physical science that meet the distribution requirements below). These 10 courses become "locked in" at the seventh semester and cannot be retaken for grade improvement. o Beginning August 1, 2016, it will be possible for a Division I college-bound student-athlete to still receive athletics aid and the ability to practice with the team if he or she fails to meet the 10 course requirement, but would not be able to compete. Test Scores Division I uses a sliding scale to match test scores and core grade-point averages (GPA). The sliding scale for those requirements is shown on Page No. 2 of this sheet. Division II requires a minimum SAT score of 820 or an ACT sum score of

15 The SAT score used for NCAA purposes includes only the critical reading and math sections. The writing section of the SAT is not used. The ACT score used for NCAA purposes is a sum of the following four sections: English, mathematics, reading and science. When you register for the SAT or ACT, use the NCAA Eligibility Center code of 9999 to ensure all SAT and ACT scores are reported directly to the NCAA Eligibility Center from the testing agency. Test scores that appear on transcripts will not be used. Grade-Point Average Be sure to look at your high school s List of NCAA Courses on the NCAA Eligibility Center's website (www.eligibilitycenter.org). Only courses that appear on your school's List of NCAA Courses will be used in the calculation of the core GPA. Use the list as a guide. Division I students enrolling full time before August 1, 2016, should use Sliding Scale A to determine eligibility to receive athletics aid, practice and competition during the first year. Division I GPA required to receive athletics aid and practice on or after August 1, 2016, is (corresponding testscore requirements are listed on Sliding Scale B on Page No. 2 of this sheet). Division I GPA required to be eligible for competition on or after August 1, 2016, is (corresponding test-score requirements are listed on Sliding Scale B on Page No. 2 of this sheet). The Division II core GPA requirement is a minimum of Remember, the NCAA GPA is calculated using NCAA core courses only. 15

16 *Remedial, special education, compensatory or related courses do not qualify for initial eligibility.

17 CODE OF HONOR Nevada Department of Education There is a clear expectation that all students will perform academic tasks with honor and integrity, with the support of parents, staff, faculty, administration, and the community. The learning process requires students to think, process, organize and create their own ideas. Throughout this process, students gain knowledge, self-respect, and ownership in the work that they do. These qualities provide a solid foundation for life skills, impacting people positively throughout their lives. Cheating and plagiarism violate the fundamental learning process and compromise personal integrity and one s honor. Students demonstrate academic honesty and integrity by not cheating, plagiarizing or using information unethically in any way. What is cheating? Cheating or academic dishonesty can take many forms, but always involves the improper taking of information from and/or giving of information to another student, individual, or other source. Examples of cheating can include, but are not limited to: Taking or copying answers on an examination or any other assignment from another student or other source Giving answers on an examination or any other assignment to another student Copying assignments that are turned in as original work Collaborating on exams, assignments, papers, and/or projects without specific teacher permission Allowing others to do the research or writing for an assigned paper Using unauthorized electronic devices Falsifying data or lab results, including changing grades electronically What is plagiarism? Plagiarism is a common form of cheating or academic dishonesty in the school setting. It is representing another person s works or ideas as your own without giving credit to the proper source and submitting it for any purpose. Examples of plagiarism can include, but are not limited to: Submitting someone else s work, such as published sources in part or whole, as your own without giving credit to the source Turning in purchased papers or papers from the internet written by someone else Representing another person s artistic or scholarly works such as musical compositions, computer programs, photographs, drawings, or paintings as your own Helping others plagiarize by giving them your work All stakeholders have a responsibility in maintaining academic honesty. Educators must provide the tools and teach the concepts that afford students the knowledge to understand the characteristics of cheating and plagiarism. Parents must support their students in making good decisions relative completing coursework assignments and taking exams. Students must produce work that is theirs alone, recognizing the importance of thinking for themselves and learning independently, when that is the nature of the assignment. Adhering to the Code of Honor for the purposes of academic honesty promotes an essential skill that goes beyond the school environment. Honesty and integrity are useful and valuable traits impacting one s life. 17
