It includes required and elective courses and activities for grades nine, ten, eleven, and twelve. It is designed to help students and parents select courses for pre-enrollment for the school term. To be offered, each course must have a specified number of pre-enrolled students. Demand for the course and classroom availability determines class offerings. Freshman Academy: The scheduling process begins with the scheduling team, consisting of counselors and administrators, meeting with groups of students and parents to explain the various aspects of the program of studies, as well as the overall sequence and limitations of the scheduling process. Students and parents are then encouraged to begin planning the student s individual program. It is the joint responsibility of school and family to ensure that each student is correctly enrolled and meets any prerequisite requirements. High School: The scheduling process begins when the counselors meet with their students to explain the various aspects of the high school program of studies and graduation requirements. Advisors and teachers assist students in course selections. Enrollment Conferences are then held with parents and students to answer questions and finalize enrollment. As part of the high school guidance program, academic counselors are available to assist students with their future planning and course selection. TIPS FOR USING THE HIGH SCHOOL PLANNING GUIDE Course descriptions are listed by department in numerical order. Prerequisite: This course must have been previously completed. Application Approval: Teacher must initial the enrollment card. Required: These courses must be taken by all students as mandated by the State of Oklahoma or the Jenks Board of Education.

CORE COURSE GPA CALCULATOR The Core Course GPA Calculator is a free web- based tool available to all Jenks High School student- athletes and parents. Students with of playing college may register to use this tool as early as their freshman year of high school in order to track their academic progress toward this goal. To begin, go to: and click the "Create New Member Account" box and enter the Jenks High School ID#: and the school code: Parents and students will enter all of the student s core courses, grades and any ACT/SAT scores in order to begin tracking NCAA, academic eligibility status.
10 5 Grade Level/Course Selection./HS Students in College/Special Education GRADE LEVEL/CLASS DESIGNATION - To ensure that students are making adequate academic progress toward graduation, students will need to meet the following criteria to be classified within a certain grade/class: 9th graders/freshman: must earn at least 4 credits toward high school graduation to be classified as 10th graders/sophomores the following year. 10th graders/sophomores: must earn at least 9 credits toward high school graduation to be classified as 11th graders/juniors the following year. 11th graders/juniors: must earn at least 16 credits toward high school graduation to be classified as 12th graders/seniors. 12th graders/seniors: must earn at least 23 credits, fulfill minimum subject area credit requirements, meet the ACE testing requirements, and the Passport to Financial Literacy requirements to be classified as a graduates. COURSE SELECTION - Course selections should be firm decisions, thoughtfully made by the student after careful consultation with parents, guardians, teachers and counselors. Considerations should be: 1. Graduation requirements: both total credits and specific courses 2. Prerequisites 5. Oklahoma s Promise (Formerly OHLAP) 3. Prior successes and failures 6. NCAA 4. Special interests and aptitudes 7. College entrance requirements and other career plans Institutional staffing, scheduling, building use, and budgetary decisions are based upon student pre-enrollment. Therefore, student requests for schedule changes for both semesters must have principal or counselor approval after June 15th. From the beginning of the scheduling process until the end of May, students are provided ample opportunities to take an active part in the development of their schedules. After the first 9 weeks any student dropping a class will receive a W on the transcript, which is reflected as a zero in the grade point average. Schedule change requests will only be made during the first 5 days of school for the following reasons only: A. To make up failures C. Outside credit earned B. Computer error D. Misplacement due to lack of prerequisite or inadequate background CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT IN COLLEGE FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS - High School juniors and seniors who have taken the ACT may be eligible to enroll in college courses while attending high school. Students who choose to concurrently enroll must be able to earn the required credits for graduation by the end of the spring semester of their senior year. JHS will award academic/core credit for college courses that correlate to JHS courses. Elective credit will be given to courses if there is no correlation between the concurrent enrollment course and a JHS course. These credits will count toward JHS graduation credit requirements. Students who concurrently enroll will drop one course at Jenks High School for every 3 hours of college coursework in which they enroll. If a student drops their concurrent enrollment course, a JHS course must be added. The college will provide JHS with a list of students who are enrolled in concurrent courses after the DROP dates. Students CANNOT take EOI courses for concurrent enrollment. To replace English 12, students must take two semesters of concurrently enrolled English courses. AP tests credit DOES NOT replace either semester of English 12. Students should remember that concurrent enrollment courses begin their official college transcript which must be presented to any future college they attend. To enroll at TCC, juniors must have an ACT composite score of 21 and seniors must have a 19. Juniors and seniors must score at least 19 (ACT) in the subject area in which they want to enroll and a 20 in math. Students who meet these requirements or the requirements for admission to another college or university, may participate in concurrent enrollment. Students are responsible for registration, fees, books and transportation. Concurrent enrollment courses must be scheduled NOT to conflict with the student s schedule at Jenks High School. The TCC ACE program provides free tuition for six college hours each semester for concurrent enrollment courses. COURSE FEES - Several elective courses require students to pay fees to cover the cost of supplies, workbooks, uniforms, etc. It is not the intent of the schools to prevent any student from enrolling in a class due to cost. Many courses offer fundraising opportunities to earn money to cover the cost of fees. Any student desiring to enroll in one of these courses and unable to pay the fees should contact a counselor. Teachers may be contacted for additional information concerning the exact costs involved. ADVANCED/AP/PRE-AP CLASSES - The following explanation of the purpose of pre-ap programs can be found on AP Central, a website created by the College Board, at the following address: "Pre-AP is based on the following two important premises. The first is the expectation that all students can perform well at rigorous academic levels. This expectation should be reflected in curriculum and instruction throughout the school such that all students are consistently being challenged to expand their knowledge and skills to the next level. The second important premise of Pre-AP is the belief that we can prepare every student for higher intellectual engagement by starting the development of skills and acquisition of knowledge as early as possible. Addressed effectively, the middle and high school years can provide a powerful opportunity to help all students acquire the knowledge, concepts, and skills needed to engage in a higher level of learning." In Jenks secondary schools, students choosing to participate in Pre-AP courses should have a strong work ethic and possess a desire to tackle rigorous materials, responding in a manner that exhibits problem-solving and critical-thinking habits. They also need to possess the following academic performance skills: organization, commitment to a task, dedication to meet deadlines, time-management, responsibility, and self-motivation. THE GIFTED/TALENTED PROGRAM - To participate in the intellectually gifted program known as Gifted/Talented (GT), a student must score at or above the 97th percentile on a nationally standardized test of intellectual ability. The student must also have on file a signed parent permission form. According to school policy, one retesting is available for students who do not score at the 97th percentile on their initial test, and testing is available for students new to JPS. Courses offered as part of the intellectually gifted program are all Pre-AP and Advanced Placement courses. SPECIAL EDUCATION CLASSES - The purpose of the Special Education program at Jenks Public Schools is to provide support and services to allow students to work at their optimal abilities. These classes meet JHS graduation requirements but DO NOT meet OK Promise or 4-year college admission requirements. The classes will meet NCAA requirements with prior approval if the student is on an IEP. Subjects offered through special education classes include math, language arts, social studies, science, survival skills, and Individualized cooperative work. JHS practices the inclusion of special education students into the regular classroom with special services support whenever appropriate and all students are required to complete the State Graduation requirements. Grades are determined according to each student s ability and the objectives stated in his/her Individual Education Plan (IEP) written on an annual basis.
