4 How to Use this Guide This registration guide provides students and parents with information to assist in the student s program choices. Students should discuss course selections with their parents, teachers and counselor before registering. Students are encouraged to enroll in courses that challenge them and provide the best possible preparation for the future in terms of employment and further education. Class Selections Please carefully read this entire registration guide before selecting classes. All students must enroll in a full academic day. Students should select their required classes first, and then list electives, including two (2) alternate elective choices. In the event some electives are filled or an insufficient number of students enroll in a class, students will be enrolled in their alternate choice(s) in the order listed, if available. Courses are listed by department and program areas. Each course is described by content and prerequisites. Students must receive prior approval from their school counselor to take a class off site, including inter-district community college and on-line classes. Prerequisites Prerequisites are listed in this Course Directory to help students and parents make the best educational decision possible. Students must meet the prerequisites to enroll in certain courses. Both semesters of a prerequisite for a course must be successfully completed and, if required, the stated grade earned. Program Change Policy Student initiated requests for class changes are considered only during the first 10 days (15 days at Foothill Technology High due to their block schedule) of the semester, are subject to space availability, and are granted for the following specific reasons: (1) Fulfill graduation requirement; (2) Ability level misplacement; (3) Completion in summer school; and (4) Minimum competency preparation. Level Changes in a Subject Area Level changes in a subject area can be made with teacher recommendation, parent and counselor approval during the first ten weeks of a semester (semester 1 deadline: November 4, 2014; semester 2 deadline: April 14, 2015). 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. Every effort will be made to ensure a smooth transition. Requests for a teacher change will not be granted. Dropping a Class Prior to dropping a class, the parent/guardian, teacher, student, and counselor shall confer to agree the drop is in the best interest of the student. 1 courses: A student will be allowed to drop a class without penalty of an F grade until October 2, 2014 (30 th day of S1).

5 Message for Parents Parents are the key element in helping students to be successful in school. This is true both during the school year and during summer/vacation time. We urge you to: 1. Become familiar with using the online student information service (Q ParentConnect). Parents can review assignments, grades and attendance online and communicate concerns with the teacher via Stress the importance of attending school each day. Please schedule medical appointments and family vacations outside of the school day and calendar. 3. Set aside a time and place every day for your student to study, read, write, and/or practice. Distractions such as television and electronics should be limited. 4. Encourage your student to read the daily newspaper, magazines and/or books. 5. Review Progress Reports, Quarter and Report Cards. 6. Schedule conferences with teachers early each grading period if you have any concerns regarding your child s progress. 7. If a problem does arise with the homework, call your son/daughter s teacher as soon as possible and seek assistance. 8. Help your son/daughter study before a test or quiz. 9. If you find your son/daughter never seems to have homework, check their agenda. If you find it lacking entries, this may be the reason. In high school there should be homework every day. 10.

8 State Level Testing Program Students in the 11 th grade participate in the required California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) Smarter Balanced testing program. Students must pass the California High Exit Exam (CAHSEE) in English/Language Arts and Mathematics in order to graduate. Students must also complete all District Graduation Requirements to receive a diploma. Testing for College Students planning to attend college should prepare for required entrance exams. Two preparatory pre-entrance exams are also available to students. PLAN is taken during the sophomore year as a preparation for the ACT. The PSAT-NMSQT, administered in the fall of the junior year, is used to identify National Merit Scholar Finalists and serves as a preparation for the SAT Reasoning Test. The final stage of pre-college testing involves the actual taking of the ACT and/or SAT in the spring of the junior year. Most four-year colleges require one of these tests for admission and may base scholarship eligibility on the results. Some colleges require or recommend one or more SAT Subject Tests (see SAT Subject Tests below). These tests are taken at the end of the subject of choice and/or by the end of 11 th grade.

Career Education Center (CEC) formerly the Regional Occupational Program (ROP) Ventura County s offers a countywide occupational training program for all high school juniors and seniors in Ventura County. The CEC training is designed for student desiring marketable, entrylevel skills after high school graduation. Most of the classes are offered at Ventura County s Camarillo Airport facility. However, many classes are offered at other sites in the community and transportation is provided for most courses (check with your counselor for the exact location of each class). The counseling staff selects students on a first to apply/first-selected basis. In addition, a student s prior attendance record may be a consideration for selection. Students in the majority of CEC classes will be placed with an employer for further training and supervised practical experience. During this phase of training, students will have an opportunity to apply skills they have learned in the classroom. Students will be exposed to the realism of the work environment in an industry related to their training. Employers indicate that this phase of training is an essential part of preparing students for employment. Experience has demonstrated that a student s chance of obtaining gainful employment is greatly increased by the internship phase of the program. 10

12 Because the CEC is a career preparation program, students are not paid while enrolled in class. (Students receive high school elective and on-the-job experience). However, Cooperative courses combine paid employment with weekly classroom instruction to give advanced training to students that have attained employment. Listed below are some classes offered by the Career Education Center (CEC): Auto Body/Collision Repair Auto Painting/Refinishing Auto Service Banking and Finance Computer Business and Software Computer Repair and Maintenance Dental Assistant Diversified Occupations Fashion/Retail Merchandising Floral Design Graphic Design Health Careers Medical Assistant Network Technology Netprep Nursing Assistant I & II Screen Printing Web Design Welding and Manufacturing In order to register for a CEC class students must see their assigned high school counselor. 11
