3 INTRODUCTION Brownsburg High School is preparing students for the future by delivering instruction at the high school that is infused with engaging and relevant learning for the 21 st Century. The BHS Program of Studies provides students and parents a brief description of the courses and learning opportunities at Brownsburg High School. Each student is encouraged to take time to focus on career and college goals while planning his or her academic schedule. Most BHS graduates earn a CORE 40 with Academic Honors (47 credits), CORE 40 with Technical Honors (47 credits) or a CORE 40 diploma (4 credits). Students must also pass the ISTEP+ End-of-Course Assessment in Algebra 1 and English 10 to earn a high school diploma in Indiana.

7 TESTS REQUIRED FOR GRADUATION: END OF COURSE ASSESSMENTS (ECA) All students will take End of Course Assessments (ECAs) in English 10, Algebra I, and Biology to meet graduation testing requirements. Students who do not meet state graduation standards will be given two additional opportunities in grade 11 and two additional opportunities in grade 12 to demonstrate proficiency. English 10: Required passing cut score = 60 Algebra 1: Required passing cut score = 564 Biology: Passing cut score = 509 The State of Indiana has a unique expectation for the Biology exam in the fact that students are simply required to take the exam, but do not have to meet a minimum score. However, the exam score does reflect learning and may be used as an evaluation tool for a semester grade and course placement. State law provides that a student who successfully meets the Core 40 requirements may still graduate without passing the End of Course Assessments (ECA) by successfully appealing the student s test results under State Board criteria (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. Complete remediation opportunities provided by the school. Maintain a minimum attendance rate of 95 percent. Maintain a C average in the courses that make up the thirty-four (4) credits specifically required for graduation and Obtain 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

8 GRADE WEIGHTED COURSES Brownsburg High School will be introducing a new grade weighting system beginning with the school year. For students entering BHS in 2012 and all subsequent years, honors level courses will carry a grade weight of.5. Some Project Lead The Way courses will also carry a.5 grade weight. Please review the chart below for the list of all weighted courses and their weight value, as not all courses carry the same weight. See course description for additional course requirements. DEPARTMENT Weight - 1 Point Weight -.5 Point Business Adv Career CC/ITMGT IT: Visual Basic/Adv Java Programming IT: Visual C++/Adv Visual Programming Career Adv Cadet Teach CC/MU English AP Eng Lang & Comp AP Eng Lit & Comp English 9 Honors (class of 2016 and beyond) Adv Eng CC/VU Eng 101/102 Fine Arts AP Art History AP Studio Art Math Project Lead The Way Science Social Studies World Language AP Music Theory AP Calculus AB AP Statistics AP Calculus BC 2421 Adv Math CC/VU Math Adv Math CC/BSU M Honors Pre-Calculus BC (class of 2015 and beyond) AP Biology AP Chemistry AP Environmental Science AP Physics C Adv Sci CC/VU Bio 111/111L AP US History 421 AP US Gov & Politics 422 AP Microeconomics 424 AP Macroeconomics AP World History 429 AP Psychology 4401 Adv SS CC/VU LAWE 100 Criminal Justice AP German Spanish V Adv French CC/VU French 101/ AP French Adv Germ CC/VU GRMN 101/ Adv Span CC/VU Span 201/ AP Spanish AP Chinese Algebra II Honors (class of 2016 and beyond) Honors Pre-Calculus (class of 2015 and beyond) Intro to Engineering Design (class of 2016 only) Principles of Biomedical Science (class of 2016 only) Engineering Design & Development Biomedical Innovations Chemistry I Honors (class of 2016 and beyond) - 8 -

9 ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP) COURSES OFFERED AT BROWNSBURG HIGH SCHOOL The Advanced Placement Program is sponsored by the College Board, a non-profit membership organization. The Advanced Placement Program (AP) gives students an opportunity to experience college-level courses and exams while they are still in high school. The AP tests are scored on a one to five scale. Through this program, students may earn college credit, accelerated placement, or both for college. Because Advanced Placement courses are equivalent to a college level course, students who take AP courses should expect to spend a considerable amount of time outside the classroom devoted to this rigorous coursework. As a general rule, expect to spend one hour of work per day outside the class per period. Grade weights for all College Board Advanced Placement courses will be removed if, for any reason, students do not complete the scheduled AP examination. Cumulative class ranks and cumulative GPA s will be retroactively recalculated for students who do not complete the scheduled AP examination in order to remove any grade weight advantage the student may have received for the course. Book rental fees are usually higher for College Board AP courses because students must purchase their own college textbook. A new law, PL 91, requires all Indiana public colleges and universities (including all two and four year institutions and accompanying satellites) to award college credits for Indiana secondary school students that earn a score of or higher on College Board s Advanced Placement (AP). Indiana public colleges and universities may require a score higher than to award credits for a course that is a requirement for a student s major; if a university chooses to do so, it must still award a student elective credits that count toward his/her overall degree requirements to graduate from college. Students signed up for AP courses are required to take the Advanced Placement exams in May. At the present time, the Indiana Department of Education pays for science and math exams for juniors and seniors, and therefore, there is no cost to BHS students in these grade levels for these tests. All other tests require a fee; approximately $90 per test ($87 in 2011). For a complete course description and other information regarding AP courses go to: Art History, AP Biology, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, AP Chemistry, AP Chinese Language and Culture, AP English Language and Composition, AP English Literature and Composition, AP Environmental Science, AP French Language & Culture, AP German Language & Culture, AP Government and Politics: United States, AP Macroeconomics, AP Microeconomics, AP Music Theory, AP Physics C, AP Psychology, AP Spanish Language & Culture, AP Statistics, AP Studio Art (Drawing Portfolio), AP Studio Art (2D Design Portfolio), AP United States History, AP World History, AP DUAL CREDIT COURSES AT BROWNSBURG HIGH SCHOOL Dual credit courses allow students to earn credit toward a high school diploma as well as a college degree. Though these courses may seem expensive for a high school class, they offer a significant savings to many families when compared to tuition at post-secondary institutions. In addition to their financial advantages, dual credit courses - 9 -

10 prepare students for the rigor of college work, and help many students qualify for an Academic Honors Diploma. BHS offers courses from Vincennes University (VU), Ball State University (BSU), Indiana University (IU), Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), Marian University (MU), and Ivy Tech (IVY). There are a few details to keep in mind when considering a specific dual credit course: Some courses have certain criteria that must be met, such as minimum test scores on the PSAT, SAT, or ACT test. Some courses require that university-specific tests must be passed in order to qualify for dual credit. Some courses may transfer as college hours, but do not transfer as the identical course at another university. This is known as undistributed credit. But, in most cases, a class will transfer into the accepting university. See for additional information regarding specific transferability questions. Textbooks for dual credit courses are dictated by the universities and are added to book rental. Be advised college textbooks are expensive. Costs below do not include textbooks. Cost per credit hour is set by the university and subject to change. University University Course High School Companion Course If Available Credit Hours Est.

11 COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS Due to the wide variations in college entrance requirements, students are urged to check with the admission office of the chosen college and visit the individual college websites 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. The 11th grade and 12 th grade years are when students should take the SAT and ACT college readiness tests. Additionally, juniors have the opportunity to earn scholarship monies through the National Merit program by taking the PSAT Examination. For more information about the SAT and ACT programs, please visit and To prepare for college, students should do the following: 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. Maintain the best possible grade point average (GPA). Take the PSAT test in the fall of the sophomore year. It is recommended to retake PSAT in the Fall of the Junior year and take the SAT or ACT in the spring of the junior year and once again in late fall of the senior year. Have SAT and ACT scores sent to Brownsburg High School (CEEB school code is 1505) as well as to colleges being considered. Apply to colleges early during the fall of your senior year. Some colleges and some highly competitive programs require early application. Complete the FAFSA form after January 1 and submit by March 10, to be considered for state and federal financial aid. Visit for more information on the FAFSA. NAVIANCE - Naviance Family Connection is a web-based program that promotes college and workplace readiness for high school students. All Brownsburg High School students and their parents have access to Naviance Family Connection. Incoming ninth grade students will receive their registration information during freshman orientation. Family Connection applications include: College Planner Students can research colleges, enrichment programs, and scholarships. They can access school forms and can request transcripts and school profiles to 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. GRADE 9 AND 10 COLLEGE AND CAREER PLANNING AT BROWNSBURG HIGH SCHOOL It may be difficult for 9th and 10th grade students to choose a specific Career Major Pathway; however, the kinds of course choices and the success at the 9th and 10th grade level begins to form the career pathway choice for the eleventh grade. For this reason, the high school curriculum becomes a 9th and 10th grade formative/evaluative program, and the 11th and 12th grade becomes a career-focused preparatory program. All 9th and 10th grade students will schedule english, mathematics, social studies, science, physical education (9), speech (10) and health (10). Students will take End of Course Assessments (ECA) after the completion of Algebra I, Biology and English 10. Electives chosen during these foundation years should parallel the career cluster and diploma level desired. College readiness testing for this formative stage includes the PSAT test which is taken in the fall of the sophomore year. GRADE 11 AND 12 COLLEGE AND CAREER PLANNING AT BROWNSBURG HIGH SCHOOL The decision for the proper program concentration requires team planning for the 11th &12th grade years. This should involve the student, parent, and high school personnel. Post high school educational experiences in today s technical world will be mandatory for all students regardless of program selection. Individual preparation, ability, interest, and motivation will determine success during one s entire lifetime. It must be the goal of the educational team (studentparent-school) to correctly place each student in the courses and sequence level of their chosen Career Pathway. Each Career Pathway has a degree of flexibility built into it for supporting electives and core course academic leveling. The Career Major is composed of classes which offer a sequential preparation of knowledge and skills in the core content area. When successfully completed, these courses should present opportunities at graduation to advance to the next level of continuing education and/or employment. As you choose the Career Major of interest, remember to take into account past demonstrated ability in core-proficiency content classes (math, english, science, and social studies.) Choice of a specific Career Pathway and supporting electives must be attainable based on demonstrated past academic success and an attitude of sincere interest. The Senior Academy Cadre program is linked to courses with career-related experiences and a capstone Senior Project

12 COLLEGE AND CAREER PATHWAYS College and Career Pathways provide a way for schools to organize instruction and student experiences around sixteen broad categories that encompass virtually all occupations from entry through professional levels. Use this site to build 4-Year Course Plans & Course Frameworks. Start with a Career Cluster by selecting one of the 16 Career Clusters below. Then study the Career Pathway Models for the chosen area, and select a more specific Career Pathway from that Cluster. LearnMore Resource Center's Career Profiles, organized alphabetically by job title, provide job description, wage information, employment outlook, education/training and licensing requirement, related occupations, military opportunities, and working conditions. SENIOR ACADEMY CADRE The culminating Senior Academy experience is the Senior Academy Cadre program. The Senior Academy Cadre program is linked to courses with career-related experiences and a Senior Project. Cadre Experience Components Complete a Senior Project with the guidance of a community consultant to extend learning into the real world. Complete career-related experiences such as an internship, job shadowing, or service learning project. Take at least one AP, dual credit, or online course during high school. Complete an online graduation portfolio which showcases a postsecondary plan, high school accomplishments, and a personal mission statement. Students may also submit a personal learning plan that encompasses the above learning experiences. Senior Cadre courses are paired with an additional course, FACS Issues and Applications. A credit will be awarded for each course and will be displayed independently on the student transcript. These combined courses provide a blocked class time when students can work on their coursework, senior project, career-related experiences, and graduation portfolio. Please note that all seniors will have the opportunity to complete a Senior Project and/or to participate in career-related activities if they choose. However, the Senior Project and career-related activities are compulsory requirements of the career-based curriculum the Cadre students will complete

Students who need transcripts sent to colleges and universities start the process by going to the Parchment website (http://www.parchment.com). Students register and complete the online request. The counselor will then confirm the request with Parchment, and the transcript will be forwarded electronically. This transcript will serve as an official transcript when this process is followed. Parents and students are encouraged to use PowerSchool to check grades and to print report cards. PowerSchool user names and passwords are provided at registration. Paper report cards are no longer provided. If you need your PowerSchool user name or password please contact the administrative assistant of the grade level team. CHANGES IN PRE-ENROLLED CLASS SELECTIONS The course offerings at Brownsburg High School are based upon student requests during pre-enrollment. Therefore, it is necessary for students to determine their class choices with a commitment to complete those classes. In the event a student would find it necessary to request a change in their course selections, students make an appointment to see their guidance counselor. May 1 is the deadline for students to request changes in their course selections for their schedule. The guidance staff may need to use alternate classes if (1) an original class choice is not offered due to insufficient enrollment or (2) the student has selected two classes which conflict on the student s schedule. Once schedules are built for the entire school, counselors may change a student s schedule to obtain balanced class sizes. COURSE LEVEL CHANGES Students and parents should recognize that course recommendations are given by teachers based on current and past student performance. When students and/or parents choose to select a course different from the recommendation, they are responsible for the decision. If they wish to make a change, they must follow the level change policy: Level Change Policy A level change request may originate with a parent, student, or teacher. Any level change, however, requires direct communication among the current course teacher, guidance counselor, and the parent. Guidelines to consider when requesting a schedule change will include the student's current grade, test scores, and teacher observations. Once a student has changed levels, he may not change back to the original level. New Student Course Changes A student new to Brownsburg High School is scheduled by the guidance counselor based on the information provided at the time of registration. As records are received and teachers become more familiar with the student s background, it may be necessary to change the student s schedule to accommodate needs. This change may involve level changes outside the normal window or the addition/deletion of a course from the student s schedule. DROP AND/OR ADD COURSES If a student wishes to request a schedule change that involves adding or dropping a course, he/she must complete a Schedule Change Request Form which includes the student s name, grade level, and course to add/drop. Schedule changes are discouraged and such requests will be given close scrutiny. All changes must be approved by the grade level team (assistant principal, counselor, academic coach). There will be no schedule changes to accommodate a teacher preference. Students may not drop a class and then request to be a teacher assistant. Class Add/Drops generally will be made for the following reasons: Request to take courses to qualify for the Academic Honors Diploma Failure of a course required for graduation Add a seventh course to replace a study hall Failure of a course with a particular teacher; student has been assigned the same teacher for the exact same - 1 -

14 course (Registration Day ONLY) Add a study hall if you currently have 7 classes. A determination will be made on a case by case basis (i.e., prolonged illness wherein excessive absence makes a normal load too heavy) Dropping a course may endanger athletic eligibility (See Athletic Eligibility). Students cannot schedule more than one study hall during any semester. 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 Schedule 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 Schedule 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. RETAKE POLICY A student must demonstrate proficiency in each course required for graduation. Students may repeat a course where they have received a D+, D, or D- in order to earn a better grade. The following rules will apply: 1. When repeating a course either failed F or already passed with a D+, D or D-, the second grade will replace the first grade on the transcript. The first grade will appear as an R, for no credit, and will not factor into the GPA. (Exception: In the event a student fails a previously passed course, both the F for the second grade and the first passing grade will appear on the transcript and both will count toward cumulative GPA). 2. When repeating a course, a student may go from an honors level course to a regular level (provided 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. INCOMPLETE GRADES An Incomplete (I) may be given under certain situations in lieu of a grade when a student does not complete the requirements of the course. The student must make arrangements with the teacher to fulfill those requirements. Teachers must submit final grades for each student upon completion of the course or indicate to the principal what arrangements have been made to remove the incomplete. Accommodations for individual situations shall be made by the building principal as the need arises. Each student has two weeks, 10 school days, after the last day of the grading period to fulfill the requirements of the course upon returning from an extended absence (three days or more). Any work not made up will be recorded as failing. Exceptions to this policy must be approved by the principal. MIDYEAR GRADUATES Midyear graduates are to comply with the following policies: May not enroll in career technical classes at Ben Davis during the seventh semester. Must enroll in one (1) semester classes only during the seventh semester. Must be approved for midyear graduation at pre-enrollment time in the Spring. Must have passed the graduation qualifying tests (Algebra I ECA and English 10 ECA). Must file a completed request form, properly signed by the parent, student, and Principal by June 1st, prior to the beginning of the senior year. Students who do not meet this deadline will not have the eighth semester of attendance waived. FULL TIME ENROLLMENT Students must maintain at least six (6) credit generating classes per semester in order to maintain a timely progress toward high school graduation. The Superintendent or School Board will not grant approval per IC for students to enroll in less than six (6) credit generating courses unless an I.E.P. or 504 plan is in effect. Students must attend a minimum of six semesters to receive a diploma. POST-SECONDARY ENROLLMENT PROGRAM A student may enroll in courses offered by an accredited public or private college or university located in Indiana that grants a baccalaureate or associate degree on a full-time or part-time basis during grade 11, grade 12 or both. Any student who wishes to participate in the post-secondary enrollment program must inform his/her counselor at least two months prior to the commencement of the class. Academic credit granted for course work successfully completed by a student under this program may qualify as high school credit or credit at the university in accordance with the contract with the institution for dual credit. All grades earned in courses taken through the post-secondary enrollment program that are not equivalent to Brownsburg High School grade-weighted courses will be listed on the student s transcript

15 with the school records indicating that the credits were earned at an eligible institution with resulting credit for meeting graduation at Brownsburg High School. The grade, however, would not be included in the GPA. For courses that are equivalent or the same as grade-weighted courses, grade weight will be assigned under the following condition: Courses or the equivalent of such courses that yield credit resulting in a weighted grade at Brownsburg High School will have a grade-weight assigned upon receipt of the transcript at Brownsburg High School. For example, a student who enrolls in ENGL 101 at the university will receive a weighted grade on the high school transcript when the university transcript is sent to Brownsburg High School, since ENGL 101 is a college-level course that is taught at Brownsburg High School. A Physics course that is taught at the university that would be equivalent to the course content of AP Physics C would also result in a weighted grade on the high school transcript since AP Physics at Brownsburg High School offers a weighted grade. Courses eligible for grade weighting will have the grades included in the GPA. TRANSFER STUDENTS-ENROLLMENT Students transferring to Brownsburg High School are to obtain permission from the registrar. Class selection, health forms, and other tasks are to be completed by the guidance department. Students removed for disciplinary reasons from another high school will be denied admission to Brownsburg High School during the semester in which the disciplinary action occurred. TRANSFER STUDENTS-CREDITS Students transferring to Brownsburg High School from schools on a quarter system will receive.66 credits for every five quarter hours completed with a passing grade. In addition, three-quarters of passing grades will constitute two credits at Brownsburg High School. In cases of graduation requirements, senior transfer students will be considered on an individual basis. Students transferring to Brownsburg High School will be granted 1 credit for each semester of Physical Education completed with a passing grade provided they attended Physical Education five instructional class periods per week for 18 weeks. Brownsburg High School requires two semesters of Physical Education. Brownsburg High School will evaluate and accept credits of students transferring based on the following policy: a. If the transferring student attended a school in Indiana or another state, approved/accredited by that state s department of education, coursework will be accepted at face value if those courses are approved curriculum offerings. b. For credit or course-work to be accepted from a nonpublic school (including home schools) there must be verification that: a) the course was taught by a certified teacher; b) course content is comparable to Corporationestablished courses of study. All students entering from a nonpublic school may be given an individual achievement test which will be used as an aid in placing these students. Recognition of credits or course-work from a nonpublic school shall be granted when the above-stated criteria are met and upon satisfactory completion of any achievement tests given by the administration. 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 unless required for Core 40 or AHD certification. Only grades awarded for courses taken at the Corporation or from a school accredited by the Indiana Department of Education or such departments in other states shall be considered in class ranking and for entering on the transcript. CORRESPONDENCE CREDIT/ONLINE COURSES A student desiring to complete course work by correspondence or online should give this choice careful thought and discuss this option with a counselor. The high school guidance director must give written approval for the acceptance of correspondence or online credit toward graduation requirements. A maximum of eight credits by correspondence, evening school, or online courses may be applied toward graduation. It is recommended that students enroll in no more than two correspondence or online classes at a given time. Likewise, it is recommended that the correspondence or online credit be completed during the high school semester calendar timeline. Therefore, if a student enrolls in a correspondence or online class in October, every attempt should be made to complete that course by the end of the first semester. Cost of online or correspondence courses is the responsibility of the family. Only courses that are offered by accredited institutions approved by the State of Indiana will be approved. PERMANENT RECORD MAINTENANCE Each student shall have two copies of his course work permanent record maintained by the guidance department. That record shall indicate all courses in which the student was enrolled as of 5 days following the beginning of each semester. All withdrawals will be recorded on the record. Students expelled during a semester will have the notation I.C , "Expelled placed in the area for grades during the semester in which the expulsion occurs. The guidance registrar will maintain permanent records as directed by the Director of Guidance. Copies of records will be released according to the Family Rights and Privacy Acts. Students expelled will receive a "W" as the final grade in enrolled courses, unless otherwise directed by the expulsion examiner or if the student is a special education student

16 ATHLETIC ELIGIBILITY In order to participate in athletics a student must be in good standing with the school academically. This means to participate in extra-curricular contests, a student must meet the IHSAA standard of being enrolled in and passing at least 70% of the maximum number of full credit subjects (or equivalent) that a student can take (5 out of 7 classes) at the end of each nine weeks and the semester. If a student does not meet these standards he/she will not participate in extra-curricular contests during the next nine weeks grading period. Students not academically eligible are permitted to practice. A student not meeting these standards during the last nine weeks and semester of a school year will not participate in extra-curricular contests during the first nine weeks of the next school year except under the following limited conditions: 1. Fourth nine week failure but passes the course for the second semester: Student must pass a Brownsburg High School approved summer school course in a subject for which he/she has not previously received credit. 2. Second semester failure but passes the fourth nine weeks grading period: Student must retake the class and pass. The course must be a Brownsburg High School approved summer school course.. Second semester failure and nine week failure in the same course: Student must retake the class and pass. The course must be a Brownsburg High School approved summer school course. ATHLETIC SUSPENSION (2.0 GPA Minimum) The Brownsburg Community School Corporation believes that a student-athlete s education should be their top priority and therefore, requires that a student participating in athletics carry a 2.0 GPA. While the athlete is technically academically eligible (by IHSAA standards), he/she will be suspended from participation in extra-curricular contests until the student demonstrates a 2.0 GPA at the end of the grading period, or until academic probation is granted. (See Academic Probation below.) A student not meeting the 2.0 GPA standards during the last nine weeks of a school year will not participate in extracurricular contests during the first nine weeks of the next school year except under the following limited conditions: 1. If a student-athlete does not meet the 2.0 GPA average, he/she may enroll in an approved summer school course in which he/she has not previously received credit. The combined GPA of the fourth nine and the summer course must meet the 2.0 GPA average threshold. 2. Students that have been suspended from contest competition, due to the 2.0 GPA rule, are permitted to practice. ATHLETIC PROBATION If a student-athlete meets the IHSAA standard as outline above, yet is below the corporation s required 2.0 GPA, he/she may apply for Academic Probation at any point after three weeks of the current grading period. This probationary status shall not be granted to any student more than two (2) times during the four (4) years the student is enrolled in Brownsburg High School. To qualify for probationary status a student-athlete must meet the following four conditions: 1. Have remained with the team during the first three weeks of academic ineligibility, missing practices and games for academic reasons only. 2. Apply for academic probation on the appropriate form (including documentation of grades for all enrolled classes).. Earned an academic grade average of 2.25 GPA or greater at the time of application. 4. Attend two BHS athletic study table sessions (0 minutes each) per week during the probationary period. ATHLETIC STUDY TABLE 1. In-Season-Athletes: Any student earning a grade below a "C- in any one class will be required to attend a MINIMUM of two Athletic Department Study Table help sessions per week. 2. Out-of-Season Athletes: Coaches will monitor their athletes grades and let them know they are keeping an eye on their academic progress. Coaches will strongly encourage attendance at the Athletic Department Study Table sessions
