3 Additional Information Course Availability State Assessments

4 Graduation Plans Students will have an annual review of their graduation plan to assess progress, discuss necessary adjustments, and update the plan to revise course selections in order to meet new or additional goals. Students will be advised of courses recommended for college and career preparation and should inform themselves of changes in entry requirements and career trends. Parents and/or guardians will be consulted if a major change occurs. The plans below pertain to students entering 9th grade in Beginning with the freshman class of , the Foundation Plan will be implemented. Students who started high school before may opt to switch to the Foundation Plan or complete their current plans. Prior to making the decision, we recommend that they visit with the JNHS counselor. Foundation Plan (FP, 24 credits) ELA (4) Math (3) Science (3) Social Studies (3) English 1 Algebra 1 Biology World Geo/History English 2 Geometry 2 nd Science US History English 3 3 rd Math 3 rd Science Government (0.5) 4 th English Economics (0.5) Additional required credits include one (1) credit of PE, two (2) credits of foreign language or computer science, one (1) credit of fine arts, half (0.5) credit of speech, and six and one half (6.5) elective credits. While a student can graduate on the Foundation Plan without an endorsement, JNHS administration strongly advises that each and every student seek an endorsement. Failure to complete the Foundation Plan accompanied by an endorsement can seriously affect a student's college entrance opportunities.

AP courses are taught by high school teachers or university professors who receive College Board training. 5

Available Advanced Placement Courses For additional information, see the counselor and visit Dual-credit Courses JNHS students have dual-credit opportunities at two local colleges ( College and Texas State Technical College-West Texas) and through the state-wide Advanced Technical Credit (ATC) Program. Students may earn both high school and college credit at the same time while enrolled in a dual-credit course. Credit is posted to the student s high school transcript and college transcript upon successful completion of the course. The student is taught and graded in the same way as college students who take the same course. s received as dual credit are not included in GPA calculations, unless the course is taught by a JNHS employee. Dual enrollment classes are taught by one of the following teaching arrangements: the course may be taught on the college campus by a college instructor, the course may be taught on a high school campus by a college instructor, or the course may be taught on a high school campus by a high school teacher. Policies regarding college tuition, fees, and required instructional supplies are set by the college or university. Students must meet specific college and JNHS criteria (students having failed a six-week grading period in a prior class are advised to refrain from enrolling in dual-credit courses) before being accepted for enrollment in a dual credit course. Students should check with individual institutions of higher learning for admission requirements and details for awarding credit.
