3 GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS Core 40 Diploma Core 40 with Technical Core 40 with Academic Honors Diploma Honors Diploma The Avon School Board acknowledges that some students are pursuing educational goals which may require graduation from high school at an earlier date than their designated class. Application for early graduation shall be in accordance with state regulations. The principal may honor this request if all conditions for graduation are met and the student fulfills the graduation requirements. Section 5464 requires full time attendance of eight (8) semesters unless a seven semester waiver request (Semester 1 Grad) is approved by the guidance department. The student may participate in the graduation ceremonies with his/her designated class. A student requesting to graduate earlier than the seventh semester must submit his/her request in writing to the principal. Upon school board approval, the student should understand that he/she will not be permitted to participate in the commencement ceremony. (See Early Mid Year Graduate on page 7). 2. Students receiving a diploma from Avon High School must take required units of study from Avon, Harris Academy, or an approved online program. Required units of study will be accepted from other accredited high schools for students moving into the district (Refer to section 546). If a student fails a required course, he/she may retake the course in summer school, and/or by an approved online course and/or through Plato courses available in the Online Education Center at Avon High School.. All credits required for graduation must be satisfactorily completed in order to participate in graduation exercises. Students are expected to participate in graduation exercises in order to receive a diploma though this requirement may be waived at the discretion of the principal. 4. Indiana high school students in the classes of 2012 and beyond must pass the End of Course Assessment (ECA) in the subjects of English 10 and Algebra I in order to receive a high school diploma. DIPLOMA TYPES INDIANA CORE 40 Indiana CORE 40 is a single, flexible curriculum that, except for elective courses, is based upon a single set of agreed upon competencies. Core 40 is not just for students who want to go to college. However, you need to complete Core 40 to be considered for regular admissions to Indiana public colleges offering bachelor s (4 yr) degrees. The same Core 40 courses are strongly recommended for admission to public colleges offering associate s (2 yr) degrees and certificates, or for entry into the workforce. The Core 40 diploma is the MINIMUM diploma for Indiana high school students. The following courses fulfill CORE 40: 1. English/Language Arts 8 credits in Literature, Composition, & Speech Mathematics 6 credits 2 credits: Algebra I 2 credits: Geometry 2 credits: Algebra II (Note: All students are required to take a math or physics course during their junior or senior year) Science 6 credits 2 credits: Biology I 2 credits: Chemistry, Physics, or Integrated Chemistry/Physics 2 credits: Any Core 40 science course Social Studies 6 credits 2 credits: US History 1 credit: US Government 1 credit: Economics 2 credits: World History & Civilization or Geography & History of the World 2. Directed Electives 5 credits World Languages* Fine Arts 2

4 Career/Technical. Physical Education 2 credits 4. Health and Wellness 1 credit 5. Preparing for College & Careers^ 1 credit 6. Electives 12 credits (Career Academic Sequence Recommended) 47 total credits ^formerly Career Planning & Success Skills *Entrance into some college programs may require additional courses. For example, many engineering programs require four years of high school math. Some colleges now require 2 years foreign language to be accepted into certain programs. Remember that while many advanced courses are not absolutely necessary for college entrance, they may be helpful in preparing you for college work. It is recommended that each student work closely with his/her guidance counselor when planning programs. CORE 40 with ACADEMIC HONORS DIPLOMA For the Core 40 with Academic Honors diploma, students must meet core 40 requirements and must also: Earn 2 additional Core 40 math credits Earn 6 8 Core 40 world language credits (6 credits in one language or 4 credits each in two languages) Earn 2 Core 40 fine arts credits Earn a grade of C or above in courses that will count toward the diploma Have a grade point average of B or above, and Complete one of the following: - Complete AP courses (4 credits) and corresponding AP exams - Complete dual high school/college credit courses from an accredited postsecondary institution (6 transferrable college credits) - Complete a combination of AP courses (2 credits) and corresponding AP exams and dual high school/college credit course(s) from an accredited postsecondary institution ( transferable college credits) - Score 1200 or higher combined SAT critical reading and mathematics - Score a 26 or higher composite on the ACT - Complete IB (Higher Level) courses (4 credits) and corresponding IB exams (not offered at Avon High School) Only courses in which a student has earned a grade of C or above may count toward a Core 40 with academic honors diploma. If a student earns a grade lower than a C, that course cannot count toward the total 47 required credits and the student will need to earn additional credits with a C or above to achieve the total 47 credits. A student may repeat a course for a better grade (see Repeating a Course on page 5), or may take another course that will meet the standard, if another choice is available in that subject. For example, if a student earns a D in Intro 2 D Art, he/she may take Technical Theatre and attempt to earn a C or better (for the fine art credit). If a student is interested in the academic honors diploma, he/she is strongly encouraged to discuss an exact course of study with a guidance counselor. CORE 40 with TECHNICAL HONORS DIPLOMA For the Core 40 with Technical Honors diploma, student must meet core 40 requirements and must also: Earn a grade of C or above in courses that will count toward the diploma Have a grade point average of B or above Complete a career technical program (8 or more related credits) Complete two of the following, one must be A or B: A. Score at or above the following levels on WorkKeys: Reading for Information Level 6; Applied Mathematics Level 6; Location Information Level 5 B. Complete dual high school/college credit courses in a technical area (6 college credits) C. Complete a Professional Career Internship course or Cooperative Education course (2 credits) D. Complete an industry based work experience as part of two year technical education program (minimum 140 hours)

5 E. Earn a state approved, industry recognized certification Only courses in which a student has earned a grade of C or above may count toward a Core 40 with technical honors diploma. If a student earns a grade lower than a C, that course cannot count toward the total 47 required credits and the student will need to earn additional credits with a C or above to achieve the total 47 credits. A student may repeat a course for a better grade (see Repeating a Course on page 5), or may take another course that will meet the standard, if another choice is available in that subject. For example, if a student earns a D in Geography, he/she may take World History & Civilization and attempt to earn a C or better. To graduate with less than a Core 40 diploma, the following formal opt out process must be completed: The student, the student s parent/guardian, and the student s counselor (or another staff member who assists students in course selection) meet to discuss the student s progress. The student s career and course plan is reviewed. The student s parent/guardian determines whether the student will achieve greater educational benefits by completing the general curriculum or the Core 40 curriculum. If the decision is made to opt out of Core 40, the student is required to complete the course and credit requirements for a general diploma and the career/academic sequence the student will pursue is determined. A Core 40 Opt out Form must be completed and signed by all participants; a copy of the form must be placed in the student s permanent record. GENERAL INFORMATION 1. Students are expected to take seven subjects each semester. (Only ONE study hall per year is permitted). 2. For a student to be in good standing at his/her grade level, the following number of credits should be completed at the end of each of the following grades: 9 th grade 11 credits 10 th grade 2 credits 11 th grade 4 credits. Students should select an academic program and should consult with the guidance department to prepare for college. Admission requirements of the college(s) being considered should be checked carefully. This is the responsibility of the student. (See Guidelines of College Bound Students on page 5). The State of Indiana has implemented CORE 40 as the preferred minimum course of study. END OF COURSE ASSESSMENT (ECA) What if a student earns enough credits to graduate, but does not pass the ECA for Algebra I and English 10? State law provides that a student who successfully meets Core 40 may still graduate without passing the ECA s. State law also provides that a student may graduate without passing the ECA s by successfully appealing the student s test results under criteria adopted by the State Board. The State Board adopted a rule that provides that a student may be eligible to graduate if all of the following have occurred (IC ); The student must have: taken the graduation test in the subject area or areas in which the student did not achieve a passing score at least one (1) time every year during his sophomore, junior, and senior years in high school. completed remediation opportunities provided by the school. maintained a minimum attendance rate of 95 percent. maintained a C average (this will include a 1.7 GPA) in the courses that make up the twenty four (24) credits specifically required for graduation and obtained a written recommendation supporting the request for the appeal from the student s teacher(s) in the subject area(s) in which the student has not achieved a passing score. For more information on the End of Course Assessments, visit REPEATING A COURSE 1. Students must repeat a failed course that is required for graduation. 2. Students may choose to repeat any course in which they have received a D+, D, D, F, or WF. 4

6 . When repeating a course, the initial grade will be changed to R (which designates a repeated course) on the transcript andwill not count in the cumulative GPA. Only the second grade will count in the cumulative GPA because the initial credit will have been removed. 4. A student may repeat a lower level of the same course (providing the academic standards are the same for the two courses). For example, a student who earns a D+ in English 10 Honors may opt to take English 10 for a higher grade and replace the D+ with an R. RETROACTIVE GUIDELINES FOR THE CLASS OF 201 ONLY: Any failed REQUIRED course that a student repeated for a passing grade will be changed to R on the transcript and will not count in the cumulative GPA. GUIDELINES FOR COLLEGE BOUND STUDENTS Due to the wide variations in college entrance requirements, students are urged to check with the admission office of the chosen college, visit the individual college websites, and/or use the college catalogs located in the guidance office, when planning their high school programs. College catalogs are available online at most college websites. Most colleges require at least 28 of the credits earned for high school graduation to be devoted to academic courses. Be aware that college entrance requirements do change. To prepare for college, students should do the following: 1. Take recommended college preparatory courses. The preferred curriculum for the best preparation for college is the Academic Honors Diploma. Indiana Core 40 is the minimum standard to be followed. 2. Maintain the best possible grade point average (GPA).. Take PLAN in the fall of the sophomore year and take the PSAT in the fall of the sophomore and junior years. Have SAT and ACT scores sent to Avon High School (CEEB school code is ) as well as to colleges being considered. It is recommended that students take the SAT and/or ACT in the spring of the junior year and once again in late fall of the senior year. 4. Apply to colleges early during the senior year. Some colleges and some highly competitive programs require early application. 5. Complete the FAFSA form after January 1 and submit by March 1, to be considered for state and federal financial aid. Visit for more information on the FAFSA. Student Financial Aid and Curriculum The Frank O Bannon Grant Program is a need based college financial aid program administered by the State Student Assistance Commission of Indiana (SSACI). The SSACI awards may provide increased funds to eligible high school graduates earning a Core 40 with Academic Honors Diploma or a Core 40 with Technical Honors Diploma. Graduating with these types of diplomas does not guarantee financial aid. For more information visit When choosing my classes for next year, should I take easier classes and get higher grades or more difficult ones and get lower grades? Ideally, you would take harder classes AND get higher grades. You need to remember that what college admission officers will ask when reviewing your application is: Can you handle college level academics? One way they answer this question is by reviewing your transcript. Keep in mind, however, that they look not only at the grades you received but also the classes in which you received them. It is, therefore, important that you challenge yourself with honors, dual credit, and Advanced Placement (AP) classes that are seen as being on par with college freshman level courses. When you take advanced classes, this is a strong indication that you are ready for college level classes. The bottom line is that it is better to challenge yourself with tougher courses and earn slightly lower grades than to take easier courses. Students do need to strike a balance between rigorous courses and maintaining academic standing since it obviously would not be in the student s best interest to fail any AP classes. Students should try to challenge themselves with as a course load as rigorous as they feel they can reasonably handle even if it means earning a "B" instead of an "A." This way students can demonstrate to colleges that they can handle the college s academic course load. 5

7 NAVIANCE SUCCEED Naviance Succeed is a web based program that promotes college and career readiness for high school students. All Avon High School students and their parents have access to the Family Connection in Naviance. Registration and information is available on the guidance page of the high school website. Naviance Succeed applications include: College Planner Students can research colleges, enrichment programs, and scholarships. They can access school forms and can request that transcripts and school profiles be sent electronically to more than 1,000 colleges. Career Planner Students can learn more about themselves, research careers, and understand the academic preparation required to ensure workplace readiness. ALTERNATIVE SCHOOL HARRIS ACADEMY The Harris Academy provides a performance based alternative educational setting to encourage and enable high school students to complete their high school education. Harris is located in Brownsburg. The program is designed to provide flexibility to meet the individual needs of the students enrolled. Students who meet Avon High School s graduation requirements may earn a diploma from AHS and participate in Avon s commencement ceremony; however, Harris seniors requesting to graduate at the end of the first quarter must submit their request in writing to the principal. Upon school board approval, the student should understand that he/she will not be permitted to participate in the commencement ceremony. Students who are interested in Harris should see their guidance counselor for more information. COLLEGE ADMISSIONS EXAMINATIONS Avon High School Guidance Department recommends the following minimum testing program for college bound students. Students may check published test dates and registration deadlines for the ACT and SAT in the guidance office or on line at and Avon High School s CEEB school code is: Grade 10 PLAN test in the fall PSAT test in October Grade 11 PSAT/NMSQT test in October ACT and/or SAT in late spring Avon High School is a June test site for the SAT Grade 12 ACT and/or SAT in October/November/December Please Note: AHS is a test site for the SAT in JUNE and a test site for the ACT in both DECEMBER and APRIL GENERAL FEES In addition to fees specific to each course (listed in the course descriptions), each student is assessed fee amounts related to standardized testing, student activities, and materials. Below is a breakdown of those fees per gradelevel: Grade Student Activity Fee Grade Specific Fee Laptop Rental Senior $18.00 $18.00 $ Junior $18.00 $15.00 N/A Sophomore $18.00 $12.00 N/A Freshman $18.00 $12.00 N/A COLLEGE CREDIT OPPORTUNITIES I. Project Excel Dual high school/college credit course Project Excel is a cooperative program between Vincennes University and Avon High School. Currently Avon offers VU Math 102 College Algebra, VU Math 104 Trigonometry, VU English Introduction to Composition 101, VU Literature 100, VU Physics 105, VU American History 19/140, and VU Math 118 Calculus with Analytic Geometry. Students are responsible for the tuition fees paid to Vincennes University. Students can earn both college credits and high school credits with these courses. Students must meet the criteria set by Vincennes University to receive the college credit, which is based on certain PSAT/SAT/ACT scores and/or the ACCUPLACER test. These courses are listed on the Indiana Core Transfer Library list, and should therefore transfer to the other Indiana public colleges and many of the Indiana private colleges. Also, these courses allow the student to meet the additional requirements for earning a Core 40 with Academic Honors Diploma. II. Advanced Placement Program (AP) The College Board s Advanced Placement Program enables students to pursue college level studies while still in high school. Currently Avon offers AP English Lit & Composition, AP English Language & Composition, AP U.S. History, AP U.S. Government, 6

8 AP Economics, AP World History, AP European History, AP Psychology, AP Chemistry, AP Physics, AP Biology, AP Environmental Science, AP Statistics, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, AP Music Theory, AP Art History, AP Computer Science, AP German Language, AP Spanish Language, AP French Language, and new to the school year, AP Studio Art and AP Japanese. Based on their performance on rigorous AP exams, which are taken at the school in May, students can earn credit, advanced placement, or both for college. Each college has their own policy on using AP exam results. The 2012 exam fee is $87.00 per exam. In the past, the state of Indiana has paid for the science and math exams. All other exam fees are the responsibility of the student. The College Board provides a fee reduction ($57.00 per exam) for qualified students with acute financial need. Students who enroll in AP courses are expected to take the corresponding AP exam for each subject. III. Special Programs for Academic Nurturing (SPAN) SPAN is a division of the Honors Program at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). This program allows motivated high school students to get started on their college education or just take courses that are not available at their local high school. Acceptance to the program is based on class rank and SAT/ACT scores. Certain courses may be taken for dual credit however this is at the discretion of the high school. If a student is accepted into SPAN, they are responsible for transportation and costs. For more information, go to SPAN courses that transfer as high school credits are NOT weighted. CHANGES IN PRE ENROLLED CLASS SELECTIONS The type and number of courses offered at Avon High School are based upon course selections made by students during the pre enrollment process in Jan/Feb. Therefore, it is important for students to give serious thought to their class selections and commit to completing these classes. There will be no schedule changes to accommodate a student s choice of instructor. The administration and/or guidance counselor may consider an exception on an individual basis if a student has previously failed a course with an instructor. Course verification sheets will be given to students in April. In the event that a student would think it necessary to make a change in a course selection, the student must do so by April 2. It is in everyone s best interest, the student, the teacher, and the counselor, to have schedules finalized before the start of school, in order to have a smooth, uninterrupted start to the school year. Guidance counselors will make adjustments to the students course selections based on courses failed in the second semester. COURSE CHANGE REQUEST After the school year has started, students should not expect to change one course for another in their schedule. Students requesting to UPGRADE a course must have a completed Course Change Request Form turned in to their counselor within the first FIVE days of the semester. The change will be considered, provided there is seat availability for the requested course. Students requesting to withdraw from a course, due to extenuating circumstances, must have a completed Course Change Request Form turned in to their counselor within the first FIVE days of the semester. Removal from a course after the first FIVE days of the semester, will result in a WF for the course, which will appear on the student s transcript and factor into their cumulative GPA. EARLY MID YEAR GRADUATES Seven (7) semesters of full time attendance are required for graduation; however eight (8) semesters are highly recommended. If a student wishes to graduate after seven (7) semesters, he/she must meet all graduation requirements by the end of the seven (7) semesters and provide reasons and written consent signed by his/her parents/guardians. Written consent must be provided to the guidance department before the first day of the student s senior year. Students, who are applying for early graduation must carry a full course load. The student may participate in the commencement ceremony. A student requesting to graduate earlier than the seventh semester must submit his/her request in writing to the superintendent. Upon school board approval, the student should understand that he/she will not be permitted to participate in the commencement ceremony. GRADE POINT AVERAGE (GPA) Grade Point Averages are calculated at the end of each semester and are based on the semester grade. A student s cumulative GPA is the average of all semester grades completed by the student throughout the high school years. To calculate the GPA, each semester grade is given a point. The total points are then added together and divided by the number of credits attempted (A grade of F or WF is considered a credit attempted). Each grade receives the following points: A 9-100% 4.0 B 8-86%.0 C 7-76% 2.0 D 6-66% 1.0 A 90-92%.7 B 80-82% 2.7 C 70-72% 1.7 D 60-62% 0.7 B %. C % 2. D % 1. F 59-0% 0.0 7

9 CLASS RANK (VALEDICTORIAN & SALUTATORIAN) The weighted cumulative GPA (see course weighting below) is used to determine class rank at the completion of each semester. The senior Valedictorian (class rank of 1) and the senior Salutatorian (class rank of 2) is determined at the end of the seventh semester of the senior year. COURSE WEIGHTING Avon High School has adopted a cumulative GPA weighting system. In this system of weighting courses, points are added to the cumulative GPA. The weighted cumulative GPA is then used to determine class rank. Because Honors and Advanced Placement courses do not have the same level of difficulty, it was determined there would be three levels of weighted courses. The chart below shows the three levels of weighted courses and the weighting factor that is used in the formula. Students must earn a C or higher in the course in order for it to be weighted. LEVEL I (0.1 Factor) II (0.2 Factor) III (0. Factor) Math Ace Geometry Geometry Hon Algebra II Hon Pre Calculus Hon Trigonometry Ace College Alg VU Math 102 Trigonometry VU Math 104 College Algebra II Ace VU Math 118 Calculus with Analytic Geometry Science Biology I Hon Chemistry I Hon Physics I Hon Physics 105 VU English English 9 Hon English 10 Hon English 101 VU Literature 100 VU Social Studies Geography and History VU American History 19/140 of the World Hon AP Calculus A/B Ace AP Calculus B/C Ace AP Calculus A/B AP Statistics AP Biology AP Chemistry AP Physics AP Environmental Science AP Language & Composition AP Literature & Composition AP US History AP Government AP Economics AP Psychology AP World History AP European History World Language Any Level IV Language Any AP Language Business AP Computer Science Fine Arts AP Music Theory AP Art History AP Studio Art The add on formula used to calculate the points added to the cumulative GPA takes into account the number of credits earned at each of the three levels and the number of trimesters/semesters a student has completed in high school. The points added will change each semester as more weighted credits are earned and more semesters toward graduation are completed. 0.1 X number of Lev I credits earned X number of Lev II credits earned + 0. X number of Lev III credits earned Trimesters/Semesters completed SUM OF ALL LEVELS TRIMESTERS/SEMESTERS COMPLETED = TOTAL POINTS ADDED TO THE CUMULATIVE GPA Please Note: Students, who transfer to Avon with honors courses on their transcript, will have their transcript reviewed by the guidance office. Upon verification from the student s former school that the course(s) target higher ability students and are considered more rigorous and would prepare a student for the next level, such as Advanced Placement, the course will receive weighted value, provided it is offered and considered a weighted course at Avon High School. AP courses will be transferred and counted as weighted, provided the course is offered at Avon High School. 8

10 ACADEMIC LETTERS The Academic Excellence Committee made a proposal to the school board in June 2004 to honor those students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement with an academic letter; the same letter and chevrons that are given to students for other accomplishments, such as athletics and music. Athletic chevrons are gold on white; music chevrons are gold on black, and academic chevrons are black on gold. Academic letters and/or chevrons are awarded two times a year: Juniors who achieve a GPA of at least.75 at the end of their sophomore year will be eligible to receive an award in the fall ceremony. Likewise, seniors who achieve a GPA of at least.7 at the end of their junior year will be eligible to receive an award at the fall ceremony. Additionally, seniors who achieve a GPA of at least.65 at the end of the first semester of their senior year will be eligible to receive an award at Honors Night in the spring of the senior year; thus, it is possible for a student to qualify for an academic letter three times during the latter portion of high school. NAIA & NCAA DIVISION I/II ELIGIBILTY Students who plan to enroll in a Division I college on or after August 1, 2008 and want to participate in athletics or receive an athletic scholarship during their first year must: Graduate from high school Complete 16 core courses including 4 yrs of English, yrs of math (algebra 1 or higher), 2 yrs of natural or physical science, 1 additional yr of English, math, or science, 2 yrs of social studies, and 4 yrs of additional courses from previous mentioned subjects or foreign language. Earn a minimum required grade point average in core courses; and Earn a combined SAT or ACT sum score that matches their core course GPA and test score sliding scale (found on website). For example, a.0 GPA needs a 620 SAT, a 2.4 GPA needs an 860 SAT, and a 2.0 GPA needs a 1010 SAT. Students who plan to enroll in a Division II college on or after August 1, 2008 and want to participate in athletics or receive an athletic scholarship during their first year must: Graduate from high school Complete 14 core courses (beginning in 201, 16 core courses will be required) including yrs of English, 2 yrs of math (Algebra I or higher), 2 yrs of natural/physical science, 2 yrs of additional English, math, or science, 2 yrs of social studies, and yrs of additional courses (from previous mentioned subjects or foreign language. Have a minimum core grade point average of 2.0 and a minimum SAT score of 820 (verbal and math only) or a minimum ACT sum score of 68 (sum of math, reading, science, and English). Please Note: All SAT and ACT scores must be reported directly to the NCAA Eligibility Center by the testing agency. Test scores that appear on transcripts will no longer be used. When registering for the SAT or ACT, use the code of 9999 to make sure the score is reported to the NCAA Eligibility Center. Division I and II student athletes must be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center. Students should register at NCAA Division III students must gain admissions to the college, but do not have to register with the eligibility center. NAIA students must register at prior to college enrollment, and must have their SAT/ACT scores sent to the NAIA Eligibility Center using the following code, In order to be eligible with NAIA, a student must complete 2 out of the following : 2.0 GPA Graduate in top 50% of class Have a minimum 860 on SAT (math & verbal) or minimum 18 composite on the ACT Division I schools include Indiana University, Purdue University, and Ball State University. Division II schools include University of Indianapolis, Saint Joseph s College Division III schools include Wabash College, DePauw University, and Anderson University NAIA schools include Marian University, University of Saint Francis, and Taylor University Students should consult with their coaches and the guidance office at the end of the junior year or the fall of the senior year for more information. 9

11 INDIANA HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION ACADEMIC REGULATIONS The Indiana High School Athletic Association regulations determine the minimum standards that a student must meet in order to participate in athletic contests with students of other schools. These regulations require a student, at the time of participating in such a contest, to have received passing grades at the end of their last grading period in a minimum of five (5) full credit courses. Semester grades take precedence. Athletes must be enrolled in a minimum of five (5) full credit courses. All students representing Avon High School in extracurricular athletic activities are subject to these standards. OFF CAMPUS CREDIT A student considering completing coursework online through an institution such as IU Independent Studies, Indiana Online Academy, or Brigham Young University, should discuss this option with his/her guidance counselor. The guidance counselor must give written permission for the approval of the online credit toward graduation requirements. A maximum of four (4) credits by online/night school may be applied toward graduation requirements. A student may be enrolled in a maximum of nine (9) credit bearing classes during any given semester (seven (7) at Avon High School and two (2) off campus). All online course work should be completed by May 24. REMOVAL FROM A COURSE In the event that a student is removed from a course due to attendance, discipline, or any other reason determined by an administrator, the student will receive a grade of WF (withdraw with an F) for the course. This grade will appear on the student s transcript and factor into the student s cumulative GPA. In order to remove the WF from the transcript, the student must repeat the same course for a passing grade. STUDENT RESOURCE TIME (SRT) Student Resource Time (SRT) is a period built into the school schedule that allows students the opportunity to meet with their teachers for academic support. During SRT students will be able to make up tests or quizzes, as well as, receive additional help from teachers. SRT will meet every third day and will be 70 minutes in length. Each student will be assigned an SRT teacher. A pass system will be in place for students to maximize the use of SRT. To meet with a teacher, a student must obtain a pass from that teacher prior to SRT. The student will show that pass to their SRT teacher who will have the student sign out; the receiving teacher will have the student sign in and take the pass they issued the student prior to SRT. A student may obtain two passes for any one SRT. There will be an A and a B session which allows a student to meet with two teachers during any single SRT. Freshmen will be limited to B SRT assistance. During the A SRT freshmen will be participating in the freshmen mentoring program. STUDY HALLS Students may elect to take one (1) study hall as one of their fourteen classes during the year. Students may choose the semester in which they would like the study hall. Grade 11 and 12 students, with multiple Honors (pre AP)/AP courses, may petition to take a study hall per semester. Students are expected to follow the rules and guidelines set forth by the study hall instructor. This scheduled time is to be used for homework, reading assignments, test preparation, etc. in order to help the student be successful in his/her remaining classes. Students are not permitted to have a study hall and be a TA in the same semester. TEACHER ASSISTANT PROGRAM A student must apply through a guidance counselor to be a teacher assistant, with final approval given by administration. Students must not have any D s or F s in courses from the prior grading period, in order to qualify. Students who fail a course will be placed in study hall for the remainder of the semester. Students are not permitted to have a study hall and be a TA in the same semester. TRANSFER/ENROLLMENT/CREDITS Students transferring to Avon High School must make an appointment with the guidance office. Class selections, enrollment forms, and health forms will be completed with the guidance counselor. Students removed for disciplinary reasons from another school will be denied admission to Avon High School during the 10

12 trimester/semester in which the disciplinary action occurred. The principal will make the final decision in this situation. School Board Policy 546 states the following regarding the transferring of credits: In recognizing its responsibility to uphold the minimum educational standards of the State of Indiana, the School Board establishes the following policy and criteria regarding the acceptance of credits from nonpublic schools whether they be State chartered, special, or non chartered schools. Credits earned by students attending other high schools accredited by an official state department of education will be accepted by Avon High School. For credit or course work to be accepted for courses taken in such schools, either a copy of the charter or other assurance of compliance with minimum requirements established by the State must be provided. Recognition of credits or course work shall be granted when the proper assurance and the student's transcript has been received. The Corporation reserves the right to assess such transfer students in order to determine proper placement and to be assured the student can demonstrate the learning which is prerequisite to a placement. When a student transfers into the School Corporation from a non accredited high school, his/her previous courses will be evaluated by a panel consisting of the guidance director, principal, and a department head. Examinations may be administered for the subject(s) in question if the panel deems it appropriate. The student will be responsible for supplying an outline or syllabus for the courses that s/he has completed. All Indiana and School Corporation graduation requirements must be met. Although credits from nonpublic schools may be granted and placed on a student's transcript, no grades will be entered on the transcript or considered for class ranking. Only grades awarded for courses taken at the Corporation or at a school approved or certified by a State education agency shall be considered in class ranking and for entering on the transcript. In order to graduate from Avon High School, the student must be enrolled in and attain his/her last (4) credits at Avon High School. Students enrolled in schools that are non public, whether accredited or non accredited and not otherwise approved by the Indiana State Board of Education may not enroll in a particular educational program or participate in a particular educational initiative offered by the Avon Community School Corporation unless the student s enrollment or participation in such program or initiative is approved by the Superintendent and the Board of School Trustees. CAREER/TECHNICAL PROGRAMS Career/Technical education is available through Area 1 Career Center for interested junior and senior students. A student enrolling in these programs is strongly encouraged to complete the entire two years of the program. Sophomores who are part of the special education program may qualify for a Pre Occupations course. The majority of the programs at Area 1 Career Center are two year programs. Students may earn two or three credits per course based on the vocational school semester. Students should be planning a career in the program selected before applying. Students enrolled in this program spend half of their school day at the Ben Davis High School Area 1 Career Center (or another designated site) and half of their day at Avon High School. Course descriptions of the various career programs offered at the Area 1 Career Center can be found in this Program of Studies. 11
