5 TO THE STUDENTS INTRODUCTION Students: This Course Catalog is provided to help you select the courses you will take in the school year. The basic requirements for your high school education include certain required subjects and elective courses that balance your graduation program and complement your cultural interests and college/career/posthigh school plans. Passing end-of-course (EOC) exams are required for graduation. EOC courses must be taken as a first priority. Since NEISD offers many course options, you are encouraged to maximize your academic potential by enrolling in rigorous and challenging courses to best prepare you for graduation and post-high school endeavors. TO THE PARENTS/GUARDIANS (future references to parents in this document includes guardians) Parents: You have an important role in helping your student make decisions regarding high school course selections. You are urged to familiarize yourself with this Course Catalog so that you can help make important decisions. If you have any questions, please contact teachers, counselors or administrators at the school who will be available to discuss specific concerns with you. Please note the Texas Education Agency (TEA) may provide updates to rules and regulations regarding course requirements of state-approved courses. As future rule changes may impact the content in this catalog, course requirements and/or recommendations are subject to change. Please seek guidance from your counselor should you have any questions regarding the most current course requirements. REGISTRATION IMPORTANT INFORMATION The development of a student's class schedule is a serious and time-consuming process. Once a class schedule is formulated, the student is expected to follow that schedule. Parents are encouraged to become involved in the registration process of their students. Students are also reminded that the master schedule is built, faculty and staff are hired, and room assignments are made based on student choices! Schedules should NOT be changed after courses have been selected and entered into the computer. Alternate courses listed should be carefully selected as they may be used if a scheduling conflict occurs. Athletes should carefully consider their course options as NCAA has requirements for academic credit that may impact college participation and scholarships. For students who entered high school in 2011, 2012, and 2013, the TEA defines three graduation programs for students: Distinguished Achievement Program, Recommended High School Program and Minimum High School Program. In NEISD, all students automatically default to the Recommended High School Program. Students wishing to select the Minimum High School Program must meet with a counselor. Students should consider one of the Career Clusters which they currently plan to follow to assist in selecting courses. For students who enter high school in 2014, the TEA defines two graduation programs: Foundations Program and Foundations Program with Endorsements. SCHEDULE CHANGES SCHEDULE CHANGES AND DROPPING A COURSE After May 1, students and parents will receive a list of the courses selected during the course selection process for final consideration. Should a schedule change for the school year be necessary, a course change request should be submitted in writing, including the reasons for needing the change and must include a parent's signature. Course change requests must be submitted by June 10, 2014, at 4:30 p.m. to the Counseling Office at your high school campus. Changes may NOT be considered after Tuesday, June 10, 2014, at 4:30 p.m. unless a student fails a summer school class or attends summer school/summer credit recovery and gains credit for a course selected for the school year. In addition, EOC remediation and success on summer retests will be considered. DROPPING A COURSE Students and parents should give careful consideration in choosing courses since changes will not be granted after June 10, 2014, at 4:30 p.m. 1

6 Please note: WD is assigned as a result of the student s request to withdraw from a course after the first four calendar weeks of a course. WD as a semester average is calculated using a 0 multiplier for the purpose of class rank. All schedule changes are to be completed by the first four calendar weeks of a course and no student should withdraw from a course after the first four calendar weeks of a course. SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS Since most students are following a college-preparatory plan, they should consult catalogs of specific colleges before making course selections, paying particular attention to foreign language, science and mathematics requirements. Colleges that have large numbers of applicants will often use rigorous course schedules as selection criteria even if their catalog states a lesser minimum requirement. PRE-ADVANCED PLACEMENT AND ADVANCED PLACEMENT COURSES PRE-ADVANCED PLACEMENT COURSES PLEASE SEE COURSE DESCRIPTION FOR GRADE PLACEMENT The recommendations provided in this catalog for grade placement offer the greatest possibility for student success. A student s cohort is the group of students who entered the ninth grade in the same year. Students within the same cohort will all follow the same rules regarding allowable course choices and course sequencing. NEISD offers Pre-Advanced Placement (Pre-AP) courses to all students in grades 9-12 using an open enrollment policy. These courses offer an enrichment of the regular curriculum taught through a variety of strategies. These courses are intended to prepare students for Advanced Placement courses (explained below). While Pre-AP courses are rigorous, they are not college-level courses. Only courses that lead to an Advanced Placement (AP) course may be termed Pre-AP. Any student may enroll in Pre-AP courses, and is strongly encouraged to take as many Pre-AP courses as possible, as long as the student and the parents are willing to commit to the program. When making the decision to take Pre-AP courses, consider the demands of academic and extracurricular involvement. Students who choose to enroll in one or more of the Pre-AP courses must complete an NEISD ADVANCED LEVEL COURSE AGREEMENT form and submit the completed form as directed by the campus. Students enrolled in Pre-AP, AP and/or G/T Courses may have a required summer reading assignment. Please refer to your campus webpage for the updated summer reading assignment after May 1. ADVANCED PLACEMENT COURSES PLEASE SEE COURSE DESCRIPTION FOR GRADE PLACEMENT The recommendations provided in this catalog for grade placement offer the greatest possibility for student success. A student s cohort is the group of students who entered the ninth grade in the same year. Students within the same cohort will all follow the same rules regarding allowable course choices and course sequencing. NEISD offers open enrollment in all AP courses to students in the third and fourth year cohorts who are typically, but not always, juniors and seniors by grade level. Accordingly, students in the third and fourth cohort may take as many AP courses as they wish. Students in the first and second year cohorts, who are typically freshmen and sophomores by grade level, may only receive a total of two credits from AP courses cumulatively for that two-year period. If a student is classified as a junior or senior at grade level but belongs to the first or second year cohort, the student is still subject to the two-credit maximum applicable to students in the first and second year cohorts. These courses are extremely rigorous as they are college-level courses which follow a college curriculum approved by the College Board. Students taking these courses are encouraged to take the AP tests offered in the spring. These tests have additional fees paid by the students. Students scoring a 3, 4, or 5 on one or more of these tests may be awarded college credit. Students should research colleges/universities regarding their specific policy for awarding credit for AP scores. 2

7 When making the decision to take AP courses, consider the demands of academic and extracurricular involvement. AP courses are exceptionally demanding on students time outside of the regular school day. Enrolling in one AP course is the equivalent of signing up for 3-4 college hours. Students who choose to enroll in an AP course must complete an NEISD ADVANCED LEVEL COURSE AGREEMENT form and submit the completed form as directed by the campus. Students enrolled in Pre-AP, AP and/or G/T Courses may have a required summer reading assignment. Please refer to your campus webpage for the updated summer reading assignment after May 1. ADVANCED LEVEL, ADVANCED STUDIES AND HONORS COURSES PLEASE SEE COURSE DESCRIPTION FOR GRADE PLACEMENT The recommendations provided in this catalog for grade placement offer the greatest possibility for student success. A student s cohort is the group of students who entered the ninth grade in the same year. Students within the same cohort will all follow the same rules regarding allowable course choices and course sequencing. These classes are not deemed as Pre-AP or AP courses because the courses are not tested by the College Board. The curriculum is rigorous and should be treated similarly to Pre-AP or AP courses. These courses may receive weighted credit equivalent to Pre-AP courses. Students who choose to enroll in one or more of these courses must complete an NEISD ADVANCED LEVEL COURSE AGREEMENT form and submit the completed form as directed by the campus. 3

9 STUDENT EXPECTATIONS FOR ADVANCED LEVEL COURSES Advanced Level/Gifted & Talented/Pre-Advanced Placement/Advanced Placement courses challenge and enrich motivated students to expand their education beyond the typical high school program. Pre-AP coursework develops advanced skills and content background to prepare students for college-level work in Advanced Placement (AP) courses and on the Advanced Placement exams. Gifted & Talented Programs (G/T) require special admission and also incorporate the Pre-AP/AP strategies and curriculum. Advanced level courses such as upper-level languages, Anatomy and Physiology, etc., while not specifically labeled Advanced Placement, offer rigorous curricula that prepare students for college. Success requires the student s commitment to the expectations of the Advanced Level Course program(s). Students will be expected to: Analyze, synthesize and manipulate knowledge and skills; think critically Budget time effectively and efficiently; develop successful study skills Commit to a daily academic action plan; attend tutoring regularly if needed. Come to school early and/or stay late in order to attend tutoring Engage in technology-assisted research and/or communications; increase advanced content area vocabulary; build portfolios if applicable Utilize community and industry as resources in research projects if applicable Sign the agreement supporting the Advanced/GT/Pre-AP/AP programs and expectations. PLACEMENT REVIEW: The teacher may recommend that a student be changed into a regular class if that student is encountering great difficulty with the rigorous course content. The teacher will expect a positive attitude about scholarship and assignments. Any recommended level change would take place within the first nine calendar weeks or at the end of the first semester. A parent-teacher-counselor communication is required prior to withdrawal from the course. Students must also have attended tutoring with the teacher on a regular basis. HONOR CODE: All students will be expected to do their own work and exhibit academic honesty. TEST PARTICIPATION: Students are strongly encouraged to take the AP Exams at the end of the year for all enrolled AP courses. The district may provide a reduced fee for these tests when funding is available. It is critical that students consult their individual college choices for acceptance of AP credit. SUCCESS REQUIRES SUPPORT FROM ALL STAKEHOLDERS: STUDENTS, PARENTS, AND TEACHERS. STUDENT: I agree to organize my time and effort to successfully complete the rigorous work in the course(s).

11 POTENTIAL ACADEMIC DUAL CREDIT COURSES Academic Dual Credit courses allow students to earn college credit while in high school. These courses fulfill high school course requirements, appear on the high school transcript, and are used in calculating grade point averages. These courses are taught by NEISD teachers through the Alamo Colleges, usually through San Antonio College (SAC), St. Philip s College and Palo Alto College. Many AP courses are also Dual Credit, allowing the students to pursue both options for college credit and for advanced measures for the Distinguished Achievement Program. Dual Credit courses are free of charge to the students. Students must be eleventh or twelfth graders and may take no more than two Dual Credit courses per semester. The college credit is awarded through the Alamo Colleges, not through NEISD; therefore, the STUDENT must request that a college transcript be sent from one of the Alamo Colleges to the college/university that the student will attend for the college credit to be evaluated and the college credit(s) awarded. Students must: Obtain a Dual Credit Handbook from the Counseling Office Apply to appropriate college(s) in the Alamo Colleges system by the deadline Take a qualifying exam (TSI, SAT, ACT or Qualifying Exit Level STAAR scores) and submit scores, and Submit the required documents by the deadline date Below are courses currently offered for Academic Dual Credit at each designated campus. Approval of the courses offered in school year is contingent upon adjunct professor approval of the participating college. Final approval must come from the Alamo Colleges system; courses are not finalized until the beginning of the school year. American Sign Language Anatomy and Physiology Biology AP Calculus AB AP Calculus BC AP College Algebra English IV AP Law Enforcement Precalculus Pre-AP Spanish IV Pre-AP Spanish Language AP Spanish Literature AP Statistics AP Theatre Arts U.S. History AP Not all Dual Credit courses are taught at every campus because specific criteria must be met by the faculty teaching the courses. CAREER AND TECHNICAL POTENTIAL DUAL CREDIT COURSES Career and Technical Education offers Workforce Education Course Manual (WECM) Dual Credit Courses for juniors and seniors. Potential Dual Credit courses cover all high school TEKS as well as equivalent curricula for the accompanying two-year college courses. Dual Credit can be earned from St. Philip s College. Acceptance of credit by other higher education institutions is up to the receiving institution. It is the student s responsibility to contact any other higher education institution regarding acceptance of these credits. Students are allowed to take a maximum of two dual credit courses per semester. Students must qualify for admissions to the college and register by the deadline. NEISD reserves the right to cancel at any time a potential dual credit course for any reason (adjunct faculty availability, lack of an agreement with college, curriculum alignment, etc.).

13 HS Math Courses with State and District Prerequisites October 2013 Mathematics consists of different topic strands that are interconnected and involve ideas accumulated over time to build a deeper level of understanding. The pathway of courses students take should lead them to increased depths of knowledge about the topics as they see ideas build and connect with others. The intent of the state requiring four credits of math for graduation is to encourage students to remain in math each year of their high school career, advancing to a more rigorous level of math study at each level. The state provides some guidance on course prerequisites but encourages the district to offer a more focused road map for students. Students are strongly encouraged to follow the NEISD recommended prerequisites to ensure their studies are connected with previous levels and provide appropriate focus at successive levels to meet the rigor level of the standards for each course, and ultimately end-of-course, exit level, and college readiness examinations.
