5 Welcome! The NRMPS Secondary Course Selection Guide is provided to assist students and parents in planning for high school courses. Students and parents should read through this guide completely. Students: Do you remember entering kindergarten? That was your first step toward your high school graduation. In high school you will take some of your first steps toward your career, entrance to one of the branches of the military, or entrance to a college/university. With the Future Ready Core Graduation Requirements, you will complete a rigorous course of study in the core subjects of Mathematics, English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science. You are encouraged to complete a concentration in one of the elective areas of Career-Technical Education, Arts Education, JROTC, or one of the core subject areas (Math, English, Social Studies, or Science). Although not required for graduation, you are also encouraged to complete a least a two-course sequence in the area of World Languages. Use this Guide to select appropriate courses for the school year when completing the Course Registration Form. Pay special attention to any pre-requisites that may be required before a student can enroll in a particular course. Before a final decision is made on courses and career choices, please discuss plans for a course of study and career cluster with parents, teachers, and a counselor. The Registration Process Each year in the spring students meet with their counselors to review high school transcripts and to register for classes for the next school year. Also, each year students will receive a NRMPS Registration Form to complete for enrolling in classes for the next school year. Students will be asked to prioritize their list of electives because they may not always get their first choices. It is very important that parents review their student s course selections prior to the registration form being finalized. If parents have questions about courses listed in the course selection they should contact their student s guidance counselor. The registration process is complex; therefore, schedule changes will only be made in extreme circumstances. A short Drop/Add period occurs at the beginning of each semester; this time is to clear up legitimate schedule conflicts, not a time for students to try to get schedules to match a friend's schedule. Schedules will be available for pick up in the week prior to the first day of school. Your school will contact you through mail or by phone to let you know specific dates and times. High School Expectations Attendance High school courses are on a semester block system. Students take four courses in the fall semester and four more courses in the spring semester. Good attendance is essential to academic success. Students who miss more than 10 days in any class in a semester might not receive credit for the course. In other words, attendance is taken daily, and also by class period. A student who checks-in late and misses 12 days of the 1st block class may have only missed three days in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th block classes. Because of missing over 10 days in the 1st block class, the student is in danger of not receiving credit for the course, regardless of the student's grade in the course. Exams, Final Grades, and State Assessments Attendance is also extremely important on exam days. Exams are typically administered during the last week of the semester. Every class has an exam; some exams are teacher-created, some are state exams called End of Course tests (EOCs) or Common Exams, and some are state exams called CTE Post Assessments (for Career-Technical Education classes). Students must be present on exam days. In the event the student is sick on an exam day, the student will still be expected to take the exam upon returning to school, and may have to attend school on a teacher workday in order to make-up the exam. Exams count 25% of a student's final average. Final grades are calculated as such: 1 st 6 weeks 2 nd 6 weeks 3 rd 6 weeks Final Exam 25% 25% 25% 25% The three six weeks averages and the final exam grade will be averaged together to calculate the student's final grade.
6 Other assessments are also given throughout the school year. Effective in , all students in 10th grade take the PLAN and all students in 11th grade take the ACT. The PLAN provides benchmark results that help students know what areas they may need to focus on college readiness. The ACT provides similar results and is acceptable for applying to many colleges and universities. Seniors enrolled in Career-Technical Education "concentrator" courses also take the WorkKeys assessment. Please refer to the Career-Technical Education section of the guide for more information on career clusters. These assessments are intended to provide a clear picture of a student's career and college readiness. Exams are administered in all high school courses. All exams count 25% of the student s final grade. End of Course Tests are administered in the following courses: English Language Arts Math Science English II End of Course Common Core Math I End of Course Biology End of Course Common Exams developed by the Department of Public Instruction will be administered in the following courses during the school year. Science English Language Math Social Studies Health/PE Occupational Course of Study Arts Earth/Environmental English I Pre-calculus World History Health/PE English I, III, and Science Physics English III Advanced Functions and Modeling Chemistry English IV Common Core Math II (Geometry) Physical Science Common Core Math III (Algebra II) All other courses will have teacher made exams. Civic and Economics US History Psychology Promotion Requirements High school promotion is based on the number of credits earned. Each course is worth one credit. Each school year, students must earn enough credits to be promoted to the next grade level: IV Financial Management Introductory Math Applied Science To be a Sophomore (Grade 10) To be a Junior (Grade 11) To be a Senior (Grade 12) To Graduate 5 credits 12 credits 20 credits 28 credits Students who do not pass the required number of credits for promotion will be retained in their current grade. Also, the credits that students earn must be in an appropriate sequence for them to meet the requirements for graduation. Many courses have pre-requisite classes that a student must earn credit for prior to enrolling in a subsequent course. Students should plan their four years of high school carefully, and strive to master each course so they will be on track for graduation with their cohort. A graduation cohort consists of the group of students entering high school in a particular year and intended to graduate high school in four years. For example, students who enter high school in the school year are part of the graduation cohort. The following chart outlines graduation requirements for students in the Occupational Course of Study, and for students in the Future Ready Core Course of Study. Grading and Quality Points In high school a student's grade in a course converts to a Grade Point Average (GPA) number. The GPA is what colleges, universities, branches of the military, and potential employers see when they request a student's high school transcript. NRMPS is on a seven-point grading scale converting to a 4.0 GPA scale. Each course is worth a possible 4 points. Standardized Grading Based on 4.00 Scale 96 to 100=4.0 88= = to 72 = = = = or < = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =1.13
7 The State of North Carolina requires all public high schools to use standardized transcripts and to calculate the grade point average and class rank by a standard method. All courses are assigned the same quality point value except those designated as Honors, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate courses. Regular Courses Honors AP/IB A=4 A=5 A=6 B=3 B=4 B=5 C=2 C=3 C=4 D=1 D=2 D=3 F=0 F=0 F=0 The principal has final authority in grading and classifying students. Transfer Students Students who transfer to Nash-Rocky Mount Schools from schools that use only a letter grading system will have their letter grades converted to a numerical grade according to the following scale. A+ = 99 B+ = 91 C = 80 D+ = 76 F = 65 A = 96 B = 88 C+ = 83 D = 73 A- = 93 B- = 85 C- = 77 D- = 70 These are the midpoints from the most widely used scale for A, B, C, D and F.

If the student uses CTE courses to meet mathematics requirements, then the courses also must be counted for credit in meeting the completion of a career cluster credit. 2. It is important for a student to take both levels in a course sequence for their career development. It would be inappropriate to take two Level I CTE courses for the two alternative math credits instead of Levels I and II in a course sequence. This sequenced instruction also will reinforce the mathematics learning. 3. The teacher must hold the appropriate CTE license and will not be required to obtain a mathematics license.

16 High School Opportunities for Accelerated Learning Advanced Placement (AP), The AP program is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools and colleges/ universities. It gives high school students exposure to college level material through involvement in an AP course, and then gives them an opportunity to show what they have learned by taking an AP exam. Colleges and universities are then able to grant credit, placement, or both to students. AP courses prepare students for the future by giving them the tools that will serve them well throughout their college career. AP courses are offered at each of the four traditional high schools as well as through the North Carolina Virtual Public School. International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB), The IB Diploma Program is a rigorous pre-university course of study, leading to examinations that meet the needs of the highly motivated secondary student. The IB curriculum involves the student's final two years of the secondary education sequence. During this time, study is undertaken in a broad range of subjects, selected under the guidance of a school-appointed coordinator. The high standards implicit in the IB examinations assume high levels of achievement or preparation at the middle school and pre-ib levels. The IB Diploma Program is offered only on the Rocky Mount High School campus. Students wishing to enroll in this program should speak with their counselor for more information about applying for re-assignment to RMHS beginning in the 9 th grade to complete the preparatory classes prior to officially entering the IB Program in the 11th grade. Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID) AVID is a program to prepare students in the academic middle for four-year college eligibility. AVID students are typically the first in their families to attend college, and are capable of completing rigorous curriculum but are falling short of their potential. AVID is based on writing as a tool of learning, inquiry method, collaborative grouping, and academic reading. AVID is offered at Nash Central, and NRMPS Early College. Communities in Schools (CIS) CIS provides a College Access Program for selected students in grades The program targets students identified as showing the potential for academic success, but needing additional academic support. CIS schools include Nash Central High School, Northern Nash High School, and Rocky Mount High School. North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS - online learning) The North Carolina Virtual Public School offers many courses, including AP courses that may not be offered face-to- face at our high schools. For more information about this option, please make an appointment to meet with a Counselor. Early College High School (ECHS) Nash-Rocky Mount Early College High School is a small, innovative high school on the campus of and in partnership with Nash Community College. Entrance is based on an application and lottery process. Students complete a rigorous 5-year course of honors and college study, with the goal of earning both a high school diploma and a two- year associate's degree or two years of college transfer credit. The Early College prepares students for success in the 21st century and is open to all rising 9th graders for application. One goal of this school is to offer opportunities for higher learning to a broad range of students. Students must begin this program when entering 9 th grade.
