4 MESSAGE TO STUDENTS AND PARENTS Success Starts With A Plan The Alamance-Burlington School System High School Planning Guide is designed to help students select courses to meet requirements for receipt of a high school diploma. Diverse learning experiences are provided through the curriculum to help students achieve their goals. In response to changing options for high school graduates, course offerings are continually modified and updated. Changes reflect concerns of the community, state mandates, the expressed desires of students, and the evaluation of course content. The High School Course Reference Guide reflects all of the courses that are offered throughout the system, and is a separate publication. Students should: 1) review this guide carefully with parents, teachers and counselors; 2) become familiar with your course of study and high school requirements; 3) complete the course planning worksheet with help of appropriate adults; 4) choose your course selections and complete the registration process as instructed; 5) register for the appropriate courses online with the assistance of school officials; 6) return your registration verification form to the school by the announced deadline. REGISTRATION FOR STUDENTS ENTERING NINTH GRADE Registration for students who will be entering high school for the first time is designed to help both parents and students prepare for the transition from middle school to high school successfully. Both middle and high school counselors have information to share with students that is designed to guide choices, provide for balance, and inform plans for graduation. It is important that students begin high school with success in their academic classes, and counselors, teachers, and administrators are prepared to help parents and students make wise choices. Following are the activities that will be provided to all ABSS middle school students and their parents to assist with registration for high school. Individual guidance Group information sessions for teachers and students Parent information sessions Individual appointments with HS counselors when requested Graduation planning assistance Introduction to online registration 1

5 REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS ENTERING HIGH SCHOOL FOR THE FIRST TIME IN AND ALL CLASSES TO FOLLOW: Future Ready Core Beginning with the ninth grade class, all students will be expected to meet the requirements outlined under the Future Ready Core Course of Study. The primary differences between this course of study and previous courses of study are: 1. An additional mathematics course for those students who previously did not pursue the College/University Prep Course of Study 2. A recommended four elective credits in a concentrated area, and 3. An increase from 20 to 21 for the total number of credits required for graduation by the state. (ABSS requires 24 credits for graduation) 4. Completion of the Graduation Project as a local requirement. Under the six total elective units required for graduation, four elective credits (a four course concentration) could be taken from one of the following areas of focus: Career and Technical Education, ROTC, Arts Education or any other subject area Terms to understand when referring to the High School Planning Guide ALTERNATE COURSE: A course a student designates to insert into their schedule in case their first choice isn t available BLOCK SCHEDULE: Four 90 minute class periods lasting 1 semester CDC: (Career Development Coordinator) An employee at each high school to help students with career plans and opportunities. COURSE CREDIT: Successful completion of a course equals credit for the course. Most courses yield one credit, however, some courses due to length may yield two credits. COURSE WEIGHT: The value assigned to the final grade (in quality points) earned in a course based on its difficulty CTE: Career and Technical Education ELECTIVE: Course selection is open to choice, not a requirement to graduate FUTURE READY CORE: Course of study for students entering high school beginning in 2009 GPA: Grade Point Average- calculated by totaling quality points earned and dividing them by the number of courses completed NCVPS: North Carolina Virtual Public School- Online program offering high school courses PRE-REQUISITE: The courses or auditions that need to be completed before enrolling in a course QUALITY POINTS: Standard values assigned to letter grades for the purpose of determining GPA SEMESTER: A period of 18 weeks 2

7 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR RISING FRESHMEN 1. How long do the classes last at the high school level? ABSS High Schools operate on a block schedule. Classes are ninety minutes long, and meet for one semester, or ninety days. High School students take four classes each semester, for a total of eight classes for the year. 2. When can I take Drivers Education? Nearly all freshmen complete the classroom portion of Drivers Education during the ninth grade. Most are able to complete the required driving portion of the course also. Contact your high school principal and check your school website for instructions to sign up for Drivers Education. You must be at least 14 ½ years old to enroll. 3. What is the difference between Honors and CP courses? Generally, honors courses are more demanding, requiring additional reading and writing, along with an accelerated pace of learning. Honors classes also result in additional quality points when calculating a student s grade point average. Most freshmen should challenge themselves by registering for at least one honors course during the ninth grade year. 4. What courses do all ninth grades take? All ninth graders must take English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and the required Health/Physical Education course. Ninth graders may choose three elective courses from several areas, including physical education, career and technical education, foreign language, art, and music. 5. If I am planning on going to community college, a four year college, or a technical school after I graduate, how do I prepare? Beginning in ninth grade, you should take the most rigorous courses your school has to offer. In addition, regular school attendance, involvement in extra-curricular activities, a good disciplinary record, and participation in community/service activities will all add to your chances of being accepted to the school of your choice. Get to know your guidance counselors and meet with them regularly to get help with setting your goals, and meeting them! 6. What is a Career Pathway? A career pathway is a series of four courses in the career and technical education elective area. The four courses are all related and build on the skills learned in previous courses. The pathways are organized in broad categories known as clusters, including Human Services, Science/Technology/Engineering/Mathematics, Health Science, Agriculture, Technology & Communications, and Finance. For more information about career clusters and pathways, contact your high school principal. 7. What if I want to play sports or participate in other extra-curricular activities? All ninth graders are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities. Generally speaking, the more involved a student is with school, the better the student tends to achieve. To participate in sports, a student must have a physical examination by a physician, have a good attendance record, make good grades, have an excellent disciplinary record, and abide by the High School Extra-Curricular Code of Conduct. For details about eligibility requirements for athletics or other extra-curricular participation, contact your high school principal and view your schools website. 4

8 REGISTRATION FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ENTERING GRADES Registration is a process by which students and parents indicate to school officials what courses they desire to take for the upcoming school year. Careful attention needs to be given to planning for coursework which will help the student to meet established goals, including preparation for college and future career interests. Students and parents need to seek advice from counselors, teachers, CDC s and administrators before making final selections. Remember that registration signals a commitment to the course choices that you select, since principals must construct a master schedule based on student demand. Students have a variety of courses to choose from, and when possible, courses will be offered at each high school in our district if they are on the registration menu except where otherwise noted or unless student demand is not sufficient at your high school. Some specialized curriculums and/or programs are offered only at certain schools, so be sure to ask about these types of courses when completing registration. The school district is committed to assisting each student with the registration process by offering parents/students the opportunity for individual conferences, opportunities to verify course choices, and providing information about the master schedule and how your choices may translate into a potential daily schedule. Principals reserve the right to adjust course choices pending review of final grades in previous courses and test scores on state-mandated assessments. COURSE OF STUDY CHOICES FOR STUDENTS ENTERING HIGH SCHOOL PRIOR TO THE SCHOOL YEAR: College/University Prep The College/University Prep Course of Study is designed for students planning to attend a four-year college or university after high school. This is the most stringent diploma as four credits of math and two credits of the same foreign language are required. College Tech Prep The College Tech Prep Course of Study is designed to provide students with the technical and academic foundation leading to an associate or baccalaureate degree or a postsecondary certificate in a specific career field. Career Prep The Career Prep Course of Study is designed for those students who are preparing to enter the workforce or community college upon graduation from high school. This course of study meets minimum graduation requirements. Occupational The Occupational Course of Study is designed for selected students with disabilities and is identified by their Individualized Education Plans (IEP). IMPORTANT NOTES: 1) Elective choices should be selected based on course of study, career plans, and educational goals. 2) Students who fail courses or change their course of study may have to attend high school for an extra year to meet all high school graduation requirements. 3) After school begins, students may not withdraw from a class after 10 days. Students who desire any schedule change must check with their school administration or counselor office prior to the 10 day limit. 4) High school students in the Alamance-Burlington School System must be enrolled in four (4) courses each semester. Exceptions to this guideline include early release for seniors, students involved in work-based learning opportunities, and students approved for dual enrollment by the principal. Students must physically attend school for ½ of the school day to be counted present. 5

11 Graduation plans should be developed by every entering ninth grader prior to the end of the first semester of the ninth grade year with assistance from counselors, CDC s, administrators, and parents. Graduation plans are intended to be road maps for the high school career. Students and parents should consider a number of questions as they develop the graduation plan, including but not limited to the following: 1) Are you successful in school, working to your potential? 2) What are your special interests? 3) What are your strengths and weaknesses? 4) Do you have the necessary support to be successful in high school and where does it come from? 5) What are your career interests? 6) What are your goals for ninth grade? Graduation plans are intended to be flexible, and should be revisited on a regular and consistent basis as interests, personal goals, and overall circumstances may change periodically during the high school years. Having a four year plan, establishing goals, developing good habits and planning for what s after high school are important ingredients for success! Five sample graduation plans are provided as guides or models for students to consider. Note that the plans include career concentrations, rigorous academics, and elective choices representing a variety of interests. Keep in mind that there are many opportunities for students to earn college credit in their junior and senior years, including virtual courses and opportunities at community college as well as Elon University.

More than 72 courses are offered TIPS FROM ALAMANCE-BURLINGTON SCHOOL SYSTEM COUNSELORS FOR GETTING SCHOLARSHIPS AND FINANCIAL AID Financial assistance is a major concern for most students who plan to continue their education beyond high school. Here are a few tips to help you get the financial aid that is available to you. The best source of financial aid is the college or university itself. You should search for financial aid in the form of scholarships and grants offered by the college or university to which you are applying. Scholarships fall into many categories: academic merit, special talents and abilities, employer scholarships (yours/your parents ), community organization and club scholarships. This Online Scholarship Guide contains scholarships announced through the Counseling Department of your high school. Scholarship name, discipline, value, eligibility criteria, approximate due date and contact are given for each scholarship. Review this information carefully. Not all applications will be available at the beginning of the school year since many of the sponsoring organizations wait until close to the deadline to send them. Also, sometimes scholarship providers will change application deadlines, so be sure to contact your school counselor about all scholarships in which you have an interest. *Note: During the school year close to 9 million dollars in scholarships were given to ABSS students. 15

Admitted high school seniors may take no more than one (1) course per semester through this special program; an exception may be made for students whose parents are faculty or staff members at the university in accordance with the tuition remission policies of Elon University. Successful completion of courses results in university credit and assigned grades for all courses taken. The Registrar s Office maintains an official transcript of each student s grades and, upon written request and payment of applicable fees, provides a student or a requesting institution with an official copy of such transcript. Per ABSS Board policy, (eff. Fall Semester 2005), a report of each student s grade in a course will be sent to his/her high school to be recorded on the student s official high school transcript. The appropriate credit and weight will be awarded through the Student Information Management System. TUITION AND FEES (per 4 semester hour course) Tuition Rate per Credit Hour (07-08) = $ Tuition: Alamance-Burlington School System pays $ Tuition: Student/Parent pays $ Tuition: Elon University contributes remainder ($ in-kind) *Fees: Student/Parent pays a $10 application fee (paid only once per year) * Due by April 1 for fall semester admittance and registration * Due by October 15 for spring semester admittance and registration Students and parents are also responsible for purchasing any required textbooks or materials associated with the course. REGISTRATION PROCESS: When high school students make course selections for their senior year (Feb- Mar of the junior year), they should indicate an interest in Credit Bank and submit an application at that time as well as indicate a course preference. If application is for fall semester, the $10 application fee must be attached to the application and submitted to the student s guidance counselor, not later than April 1. Students who wish to take only a spring semester course during the high school senior year should preregister during the month of October, using the same process as completed for fall admittance, including the submission of a Credit Bank application and fee (due by Oct 15). The student s guidance counselor must sign to approve a student s request to take a course at Elon University, certifying that all eligibility requirements and conditions for admission stated above have been met. A current high school transcript must be attached to the application. These materials are then routed to the Office of School Outreach Programs and subsequently forwarded to the Admissions Office at Elon University. Upon acceptance, a student will be notified in writing by the Office of School Outreach Programs and supplied with all conditions for Special

23 Student status. The Office of School Outreach Programs will work with the Registrar s Office to secure a space in the preferred university course. At that time, a student s high school schedule and his/her university schedule will be finalized for the academic year/semester. Students/Parents will then be billed from the Bursar s Office for the special reduced tuition rate listed herein, with a specified due date for payment of tuition prior to the start of university classes. Policies and procedures regarding withdrawal from a class and refunds, if any, apply to special students in the same manner as full-time university students. Note: High school seniors whose parent/s are employed by Elon University as either faculty or staff members may qualify for tuition remission under the policies and regulations that are established by Elon University for personnel. Questions and eligibility requirements regarding the Tuition Remission Program at Elon may be directed to a member of the Human Resources Office at Elon. Questions about the Credit Bank Program at Elon may be directed to the following individuals: Mr. Kent Byrd, Executive Director of Secondary School Leadership, Alamance-Burlington Schools (336) Dr. Janelle Rouse, Director of School Outreach Programs, School of Education, Elon University (336) Mrs. Catherine Williams, Assoc.

25 Elon University Credit Bank Program Step 1: Student sees guidance counselor for Credit Bank information packet. Step 2: Student fills out the Credit Bank Application and submits to guidance counselor for approval and signature. Step 3: Student/Counselor consults course selection guide and selects one course for either fall or spring semester, or both, based on days/times that best suit the courses required within the high school class schedule. Courses available to high school seniors are listed in the information packet. Step 4: Student/Parent attaches a $10 application fee (personal check or money order not cash). *Application Fee is paid only once per academic year. Step 5: Guidance counselor submits all information to the Director of School Outreach Programs at Elon University by the established deadline for the applicable Semester, including a certified copy of each student s current high school transcript. Step 6: Applications are submitted to the Admissions Office for approval. Step 7: Student is notified in writing by the Office of School Outreach Programs regarding his/her acceptance as a special student. The registration information is then forwarded to the Registrar s Office (registration is completed) and then to the Bursar s Office (for billing). Student receives schedule via US Mail. Step 8: The Bursar s Office sends the student a bill with a specified final date for payment. Payment must be made by the due date in order to avoid cancellation of the course(s) selected. Payments may be made by credit card or check, either in person or via online payment center at https://ebill.elon.edu. Payments may also be made with cash in Alamance Building, Office 111. Additional questions may be directed to a cashier at (336) Step 9: Student purchases textbooks and any other required materials. Student attends first and successive classes based on the Elon University academic calendar for a given semester. Students/Parents are responsible for purchasing any and all required textbooks/materials for the course. These may be found in the Elon Campus Shop (located in Moseley Student Center) by course title/number/professor. Notes: If a Credit Bank student is taking a total of 5 semester hours or less during the course of a given semester, a health form is not required. Current NC law states that all students taking day classes who exceed 5 semester hours in North Carolina colleges and universities be properly immunized before enrolling in or attending classes. A health form is required ONLY if a student has been approved to take more than 5 semester hours. For most Credit Bank students, no health form will be needed. If required, however, a student can obtain an immunization record from his/her high school or have a doctor to complete and sign the immunization section of the health form, which will be sent following enrollment. If a student wishes to drop a course prior to completion, it must be validated through the proper procedure in the Registrar s Office and through the high school counselor s office. This is the student s responsibility. Failure to withdraw properly shall result in a grade of F posted to the student s Elon University and high school transcripts. 22
