WILLIAMS HIGH SCHOOL HIGH SCHOOL COUNSELOR HANDBOOK

5 Forward This handbook was designed as a guide for counselors in the policies and procedures for the School Counseling Department as well as serving as a tool in counseling students. Much of the information for this handbook was taken from the Virginia Department of Education s and the Alexandria City Public School s websites. Some of the information is specific to T.C. Williams High School procedures that may have been in place for some time but never put in writing. Other procedures have been modified with the input and approval of Administration and the Instructional Council to better meet the needs of students. The handbook itself is organized by subject area with procedural forms and sample letters in the appendix section. As with any handbook, it is intended to be a guide not a regulatory manual. One of the major focuses of the counseling department is to support student achievement. Counselors have the professional skills, desire and ability to help students realize their dreams. It is our hope that this handbook will greatly aid counselors in helping them do what they do best counsel students. HIGH SCHOOL COUNSELOR HANDBOOK T.C. WILLIAMS HIGH SCHOOL v

For explanation and clarifications for specific disciplines and courses, refer to the Program of Studies. Standard Diploma 22 credits; 6 verified credits Credits: English - 4 Social Studies - 4 Mathematics - 3 Laboratory Science - 3 HPE - 2 Fine Arts, World Languages or CTE - 2 Fundamentals of Human Growth & Development - 1 (may opt out) Economics and Personal Finance - 1 Electives - 2 (to include at least two sequential electives) Students who enter ninth grade in the academic year and beyond must earn one full credit in an Economics and Personal Finance Course and in the place of one Fine Arts or CTE elective must earn two credits in World Language, Fine Arts or CTE. General elective requirements are thus reduced to two credits. AP Macro and/or Micro Economics do not meet the requirements for the one credit of Economics and Personal Finance. The course(s) meet the Economics component but not the Personal Finance. Students would also need a semester of personal finance to meet graduation requirements. Advanced Diploma 26 credits; 9 verified credits Credits: English - 4 Social Studies - 4 Mathematics - 4 Laboratory Science - 4 World Languages - 3 HPE - 2 Fine Arts or CTE - 1 Fundamentals of Human Growth & Development - 1 (may opt out) Economics and Personal Finance - 1 Electives - 2 For the advanced studies diploma, one credit must be earned in an Advanced Placement, collegelevel, or a Dual Enrollment course. Students who enter ninth grade in the academic year and beyond must earn one full credit in an Economics and Personal Finance Course and one additional general elective.

(Standards of Accreditation or SOA) sets forth the requirements for the Standard, Standard Technical, Advanced Studies, Advanced Technical, and Modified Standard Diplomas. Those requirements specify which level of courses and/or subject area disciplines students must complete to earn either a standard or verified unit of credit in the areas of mathematics, laboratory science, and history and social science, as well as the credit requirements in other content disciplines. The regulations also specify that the Board of Education shall approve courses (other than those specifically named in the standards) to satisfy the requirements in those areas. Courses Approved for the Standard, Standard Technical, Advanced Studies, and Advanced Technical Diplomas, Effective with Ninth-Grade Class of In February 1998, the Virginia Board of Education approved certain courses that would satisfy the mathematics, science, and history and social science course requirements for the Standard and Advanced Studies Diplomas. Subsequent to that time, some additional courses have been approved as additions to the original list and requirements for two new diplomas, the Standard Technical and Advanced Technical Diplomas, have been adopted by the Board. The following tables contain a list of the courses to satisfy graduation requirements for the Standard, Standard Technical, Advanced Studies, and Advanced Technical Diplomas.
