1 Graduation Requirements High School Program Options Course Descriptions For Harmony School of Advancement Students, Grades 9 12

2 Dear Students and Parents, Careful course selection is critical for a successful high school experience as well as a thoughtful and effective approach to the college application and admission process. Admission counselors will consider the courses you have selected, as well as your grades, as they review your academic record. If you have the appropriate academic background and strong ability in a subject, consider taking an Advanced Placement or Dual Credit courses. Remember that maintaining a balance is the key. Do not risk jeopardizing your achievement in other classes by overloading your schedule with too many of these courses. Co curricular activities are a vital element of your experience at HSAdvancement as well. Try something new, whether in the arts, athletics, student government, or a club. Just as community life is a vital part of your HSAdvancement experience, colleges value students who demonstrate extracurricular commitment and concern for others. Take advantage of opportunities for leadership in organizations or within the community that are available to you at Harmony School of Advancement. While building your schedule, please remember that it is important to enjoy the richness of what you are learning today and challenge yourself to perform at your best in each of your courses. The college process will be greatly enhanced if you know yourself, your strengths, and your interests. Explore and learn as much as you can while challenging yourself with the most appropriate and rigorous courses that are reasonable in light of your abilities. Please consult with your teachers and your counselor as you consider your course selections. Good Luck!

5 TESTING REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION Testing Requirements for Students Graduating under State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) End of Course (EOC) Beginning with the Class of 2015 (ninth graders entering high school in fall 2011 and beyond), state law requires that students pass five STAAR End of Course (EOC) assessments in English, Math, Science, and Social studies, along with meeting their course requirements, to receive a diploma from a Texas public high school. Courses with an EOC assessment are listed in the chart below. English Mathematics Science Social Studies English I English II Algebra I Biology US History A student is not required to retake a course as a condition of retaking an EOC assessment. Students who are taking any of these five high school courses in middle school will also takethe required EOC assessment. Students may not retake an EOC assessment that they have passed. EOC assessment scores are not included in students course grades. Sample questions for the STAAR EOC tests can be found at 4

6 Grading Scale and GPA GRADING SCALE All classes will follow a standard scale for assigning letter grades for nine week periods and semester work. Individual teachers will follow the HPS grading practices/guidelines for their classes, with grades corresponding to the following scale: GRADING SCALE: A Excellent B Above C Average F Fail GPA CALCULATION Grade Point Average is calculated by dividing the total amount of grade points earned by the total amount of credit hours attempted. Beginning with the freshman class, all semester grades for courses attempted will count toward a student s GPA. Courses are weighted as follows: TABLE - GPA COMPUTATION DATA Regular AP & Dual Grade & Pre-AP Credit Below Weighted GPA is used to determine class rank. Unweighted GPA is used for admission to most colleges and universities and for scholarships at in state schools. 5

7 CLASS RANK & AUTOMATIC COLLEGE ADMISSION Harmony School of Advancement is a non ranking school and only ranks students on top 10% or if it is for the benefit of the student. Class rank indicates how a student's grades compare with those of other students in his/her class. Semester averages (not full year averages), beginning with the year student started taking high school courses, are used to compute class rank. All numeric scores for regular and college classes, including distance learning will be recorded and used to calculate the GPA. Credit by Examination scores for which the student earns credit toward graduation will be recorded numerically and used to calculate the GPA. Estimated class rankings are to be determined at the end of the junior year, and the first semester of the senior year for the express purpose of college entrance requirements. A final calculation of GPA and class rank is determined at the completion of the senior year and will be reflected on the final transcript. Attention Juniors: Credits earned during the summer of the junior year have to be submitted before August 1 st to their counselors to be entered to the junior year course lists and be counted in the overall GPA and ranking computations. Any credits received after August 1 st will be entered to the senior course list and will not affect the ranking submitted to colleges during the Fall semester of the senior year. It is students responsibility to ensure summer credits submitted on time and properly entered to their course lists. ELIGIBILITY FOR AUTOMATIC COLLEGE ADMISSION Explanation of Eligibility for Automatic College Admission Under the Automatic Admission policy(texas Education Code ), Under the Automatic Admission policy (Texas Education Code ), Texas students may be eligible for automatic admission to a state college or university as an undergraduate student if they meet certain criteria. To qualify for automatic admission, a student must: (1) earn a grade point average in the top 10 percent* of his/her high school graduating class, (2) graduate from a Texas public or private high school (or, if the student is a Texas resident, from a high school operated by the U.S. Department of Defense), (3) earn the Distinguished Level of Achievement and/or a Performance Acknowledgment for outstanding performance (starting from Class of 2018) or successfully complete the requirements for the Recommended High School Program (RHSP) or the Distinguished Achievement Program (DAP) (or the equivalent if enrolled in private school) or satisfy ACT's College Readiness Benchmarks on the ACT college entrance exam or earn a score of at least 1,500 out of 2,400 on the SAT college entrance exam, and 6

8 (4) apply for admission to a state college or university within the first two school years after graduation from high school. Students who meet the criteria for automatic admission must submit an application before the deadline set by the college or university to which they are applying. Students must also provide a high school transcript or diploma that indicates whether they have satisfied or are on schedule to satisfy the requirements of the Distinguished Level of Achievement and/or a Performance Acknowledgment for outstanding performance, RHSP or DAP. Curriculum Requirements Not later than the end of a student s junior year in high school, his or her official transcript should indicate whether the student has satisfied or is on schedule to satisfy the requirements for the Distinguished Level of Achievement and/or a Performance Acknowledgment for outstanding performance (starting with the Class of 2018), RHSP or DAP. Students who are unable to satisfy the curriculum requirements of the graduation requirements because the courses necessary to complete the requirements are unavailable as a result of course scheduling, lack of enrollment capacity, or another cause not within the student's control, are considered to have satisfied the requirements of the relevant program. In such cases, the student must have successfully completed the portions of the graduation requirement curricula that were available and the student s official transcript or diploma must indicate this. Admission and Enrollment State colleges and universities may admit a student accepted under the Automatic Admission policy for either the fall semester of the academic year for which the student applied or for the summer session that proceeds that fall semester. Additionally, the admitting college or university may require that applicants in need of additional preparation for college level work enroll in enrichment courses or programs during the summer immediately after the student is admitted. Colleges and universities are required to admit an applicant as an undergraduate student if the applicant is the child of a public servant who was killed or fatally injured in the line of duty and who meets the minimum entrance requirements set by the college or university. *The University of Texas at Austin Beginning with admissions for the school year, The University of Texas at Austin (UT) is no longer required to automatically admit applicants in excess of 75% of its enrollment capacity for first time resident undergraduate students. The University has determined that it will automatically admit all eligible 2016 summer/fall freshman applicants who rank within the top 8% of their high school graduating classes, with remaining spaces to be filled through holistic review. 7

9 Valedictorian/Salutatorian & Cum Laude System Selection method to determine the valedictorian for a graduating senior class: 1. The student who is selected as the highest ranking graduate eligible to receive the Honor Graduate Certificate and Declaration will also serve as valedictorian. 2. In the event no student meets the criteria to receive the Honor Graduate Certificate, a valedictorian will be selected who meets all of the following criteria: 3. The student must have been enrolled with the school campus for no less than three calendar semesters or all semesters the school has been opened if less than three calendar semesters; and 4. By the date of graduation the student must have met all Texas State Graduation Requirements applicable to him/her including meeting all state assessment requirements; and 5. The student with the highest cumulative grade point average graduating under the Recommended or Distinguished Program will be selected as valedictorian, with the second ranking student serving as salutatorian. Under no circumstance will a student with a higher GPA who is graduating under the Minimum Graduation Program rank higher than a student graduating under the Recommended or Distinguished Program; or 6. In the case where no students are graduating under either the Recommended or Distinguished Program, the student with the highest cumulative grade point average out of all graduating seniors will be selected valedictorian, and the student with the next highest GPA will serve as salutatorian All calculations for this honor will be conducted at the end of the spring semester (before graduation) each school year. An eligible student must have attended at least one of the calendar semesters during the school year that the honor is granted. Grade Point Average will be calculated in accordance with the existing policy adopted by the Board of Directors. Cum Laude System Harmony Public Schools recognize at graduation those students with weighted GPAs at or above specific benchmarks. Benchmarks may require occasional adjustments as changes in curriculum dictate. Currently, graduates are recognized as follows: Summa Cum Laude Weighted average* of exactly or higher Magna Cum Laude Weighted average of exactly or higher Cum Laude Weighted average of exactly or higher GPA = 4.0+ GPA= 3.8 to 3.9 GPA= 3.5 to 3.7 8

10 SCHEDULING & COURSE SELECTIONS Harmony School of Advancement uses Naviance Course Planner for graduation plans and course selections. With Course Planner, students can access the school course catalog, choose courses they want to take the next school year, know which courses are recommended by teachers and see if their course plans satisfy high school graduation requirements, as well as college entrance requirements for schools on their college application lists.

Students are notified of conflicts and an alternate request is considered. 6. Counselors review end of year grades and provide students with summer school/credit recovery options. If students do not earn credit in a course during the school year and do not attend summer school, the schedule will be reviewed and student will retake failed courses in This may change the student s previous course request. 7. Finalized schedules are given to students during the orientation day of the new school year. 9

11 . SCHEDULE CHANGES Changes requested after the Course Plan has been submitted will be made only for the following reasons per counselor approval: Senior needs to make up deficient graduation credits. Student received an F grade and needs to repeat the class for high school graduation requirements or to meet college eligibility requirements. Student is in the incorrect course level. Course requested will not be offered due to budgetary restraints or low class size. Student completed a course credit at summer school. During the first 15 school days of academic year, students may request a schedule change according to the following guidelines: Level change request, based on availability Placement recommendation based on academic performance Medical/health issues require adjustment in schedule Course needed for graduation requirement or to meet college eligibility requirement Spring Semester Changes: Yearlong courses will only be dropped for extenuating circumstances with administrative approval. After a semester, a student in a Pre AP class may be transferred to on level course if the student has an average of 70 or lower for the first semester, or with teacher s recommendation. Schedule changes based on teacher preference will not be honored. The administration reserves the right and has the responsibility to only make changes as necessary to meet graduation requirements, balance class sizes, correct administrative or clerical error, reflect changes in school personnel, or other educationally appropriate reasons. Dropping A Course A student who drops a course during the first 15 school days of the academic year may do so without any entry on his/her permanent record card. Course dropping or schedule change requests will not be granted after the first 15 school days of academic year.

12 CREDIT BY EXAM (CBE)/ EXAM FOR ACCELERATION (EA) Credit by exam (CBE) is available for students who failed a course and can be taken only for an original credit. 1. A student to Grades 6 12 will be given credit for an academic subject if the student scores 70% or above on each of the criterion referenced examination for the applicable course. 1. It is not recommended to gain credit by such an examination if the course grade is less than 60 in the course failed. Students may not attempt to earn credit by examination for a specific high school course more than two times. 2. If the student scores 70% or above, regular credit is given and the examination score is entered on the student s transcript. 3. Students who have already earned a credit for specific high school course cannot take CBE to pull up her/his GPA. Exam for acceleration (EA) is available for students who want to skip in each of the following areas: language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. 2.

July 6 10 Nov March May 4 12 CREDIT BY EXAMINATION WINDOWS CBE/EA 11 CBE/EA CBE/EA CBE/EA Procedure: Students are required to register for CBE/EA at least one month prior to first day of testing (or CBE/EA window). Parents/Students need a counselor (and/or Campus CBE coordinator) approval to order a CBE. Once approved, parents/students pay $45 (only for credit recovery/ fee subject to change) per semester at the front office. There is no fee for taking Exam for Acceleration. It takes approximately a week for a test to arrive, another week or two to receive the scores from UT Austin.

13 CREDIT RECOVERY & CREDIT TRANSFERS Students earn one half credit per semester and one credit per year for successful completion of a course. Courses vary from one to two semesters in length. A student who fails the first semester of any core course with a grade no lower than 60, but who passes the second semester of the course, may receive credit if the average of the two semesters results in a grade of 70 or above. Otherwise, to receive credit in a core course, the student must utilize credit recovery to obtain a passing grade for any semester failed. Credit recovery options: Option 1: Retaking the Course (online/summer school), and gaining the passing grade above 70 for the required semester. Option 2: Credit by Examination with Prior Instruction. Students can take credit for an academic subject in which he or she has had some prior instruction if the student scores 70% or higher on a criterion referenced test for the applicable course. Once the course is completed with a passing grade, the credit will be added to the student transcript with the R coding. CREDIT TRANSFERS Credits earned by students in accredited school districts (including summer school programs and credit by exam) or through correspondence courses are transferable and accepted by the school. Credits earned through home schooling and at unaccredited private schools may not be transferrable. These students may be asked to earn credit through taking an exam. State and Local Credit Courses All courses which are to be counted toward graduation must be state approved courses. Local credit courses are courses in which a student may participate without receiving state credit towards graduation, unless the course is required by an ARD Committee for students receiving special education services. Local credit courses are, however, calculated as part of a student s GPA. 12

14 ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) PROGRAM The purpose of the AP entrance and exit guidelines is to provide information to parents and students and to facilitate students success in academically challenging courses. AP classes in Harmony School of Advancement stimulate and challenge students to perform at an advanced academic level. Therefore, AP coursework requires students to engage in more independent analytical reading and writing assignments, both inside and outside the classroom. Academic Considerations Entrance Guidelines AP curriculum is designed two grade levels above traditional curriculum. Instruction is fastpaced and much of the work is done outside of class. Therefore, AP students should be independent learners who have demonstrated prior success in the subject area as outlined below: Previous grades in that discipline: An A in a particular subject required to enroll in AP. It indicates that the student has the academic ability to succeed at the AP level in that subject. Standardized Test Scores: SAT PSAT STAAR test in that subject is a good predictor of success in an AP class, therefore it is required. Teacher Recommendations: Students who want to enroll in any one or more AP Courses listed in the class selection sheet must have teacher recommendation(s) from a teacher in the same subject area (English, Social Studies, and Science etc.) Performance Considerations AP classrooms are fast paced and challenging environments, with most lesson preparation done out of the classroom. Therefore, students taking these courses should be self motivated learners willing to invest time and energy into their activities and assignments. AP s t u d e n t s should be independent learners who demonstrate: Motivation and Commitment Time Management skills A positive attitude toward challenging coursework A strong work ethic 13

The student must maintain a grade of "C" or better in each class to remain in the program. Credits are transferrable among all Texas Public Colleges. Transfer of credits to private and out of state institutions is not guaranteed. For more details, refer to the LSCS Dual Credit Policy. AP Courses college credit is earned by passing AP exams with the score of 3 and above. Colleges have different AP score requirements to award college credits. For more details regarding AP courses, refer to the HS Advancement AP Policy. Every public institution in Texas has a Core, which is designed to provide a solid foundation for your college education and to make transfers between and among Texas institutions of higher education as smooth and seamless as possible. Each institution's Core Curriculum applies to all academic degrees. They range from 42to 48 credit hours, depending on the college or university. Each Core Curriculum is divided into 8 or 9 categories that are common across the state. Watch Out! You may choose a major which has some more rigorous or more specific requirements than the Core. Most science majors, for instance have more intensive math and science requirements. In these cases, the major requirements have priority. So, switching institutions has become easier, but changing majors may still involve taking some extra courses. 20

22 GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS For Students Entering Grade 9 in and after Students enrolled in , or may move to the Foundation Plan. 21

23 Graduation Requirements For Students Entering Grade 9 in and After Students enrolled in , or may move to the Foundation Plan In the Spring of 2013 the 83rd Texas Legislature passed House Bill 5, which made substantial changes to the state s curriculum and graduation requirements, assessment program, and accountability system. The new graduation plan mandated by House Bill 5 is called The Foundation High School Program which is intended to provide students with more flexibility. Students who are freshmen in will be the first class to fall under the graduation requirements in HB5. Beginning in the school year, each student, on entering ninth grade, must indicate in writing an endorsement that the student intends to earn.
