If a student does not pass the English 10 and/or Algebra ECA, the student will participate in remediation offerings to prepare for the next ECA testing opportunity. These remediation offerings may replace other electives and may not count for high school credit. Remediation is required for a GQE waiver. Students in the class of 2019 and beyond will be asked to take a new GQE/ISTEP test in their sophomore year to determine graduation qualification.

3 Early Graduation A student may elect to graduate from high school prior to the typical eight semesters of attendance. A request to graduate after six or seven semesters is a family decision and requires the approval of the counselor and principal. The advantages and disadvantages of early graduation should be weighed heavily. In lieu of early graduation, the student is encouraged to consider special opportunities such as postsecondary and high school dual enrollment, or an internship/co-op program through on-the-job training. The student desiring to graduate after six or seven semesters must have completed all requirements to participate in the ceremony by his/her 6 th or 7 th semester completion date. Procedures to arrange for six-semester graduation 1. The student should schedule a planning meeting with his/her counselor and parents to determine the requirements, feasibility, and social ramifications of early graduation. 2. If a student is considering graduating at the end of six (6) semesters, he/she must also: Submit the Early Graduation form requesting graduation after six (6) semesters. The form is available from the student s counselor. The student will need to note on the form his/her postsecondary plans. A student has failed with a teacher previously in a course, and he/she is assigned to the same teacher for exactly the same course (if different teacher is available) A program (Anthis, Co-op, Internship, or Higher Education) change Adding a class to continue the sequence of a year-long course Failure of a prerequisite class, i.e., anything that would prevent a student from going on to a requisite course as published in this book Requests to change levels should be addressed before the current school year ends to include teacher recommendations and input. A request to change the level of an academic course during the summer may be difficult. In some cases these requests may be deferred to the first month of school to obtain high school teacher input. Adding a seventh course to replace study hall (must be requested by end of the previous semester) After the school year begins, a student with seven credited classes MAY request to drop one course and add a study hall. This will be honored; however, a NEW class cannot be added only a study hall. Students may drop a class for a study hall until the last day of the 1 st or 3 rd grading period if space is available. A request to level a class may be done prior to the end of the first grading period. Exception: AP and Honors leveling class changes must be completed by the 20 th academic day of the semester. Summer School The funding for summer school programs is determined by the State on a year-to-year basis. Only certain academic courses will be offered during the summer. Students will register for Summer PE during the regular school year. If PE is available in the summer, notification will be given and schedule adjustments made. High school students who fail a class during the regular school year are strongly encouraged to enroll in summer school. Classes in English, mathematics, and social studies are typically offered. Current state restrictions allow only required academic courses to be offered. Details about summer school will be published when available. Summer school enrollment is NOT included in THIS registration process. Ninth grade students may enroll in summer academic courses on a space available basis. Driver s Education is also offered. Board Policies Regarding Course Selections Board Policy 5160A High School Courses Taken in Middle School Middle school students coming to Homestead High School from SACS middle school feeders may take high school level courses before formally enrolling at Homestead. Students who complete both semesters of a course will receive high school credit and grades that will be calculated into the high school grade point average. Requests to remove high school credits and grades for courses taken in middle school must be submitted to the Registrar no later than March of the student s freshman year. Exceptions may be considered. Change Requests Schedule Change Procedure Any request to change or drop a class, depending upon space available, must be done prior to June 3, A high school counselor is on duty part time during the summer. Call the Guidance Office at (260) to request assistance. Students and parents are advised that all requests for schedule changes for must be made by June 3rd, Requests for schedule changes made before this deadline, will be honored if space is still available in the course. After June 3rd, 2015, changes in a student s schedule may be made only for the following reasons: The school s need to balance class sizes Errors made by the school in developing the schedule Failure of a course required for graduation Request to add a course required for college (with documentation from the college) Board Policy 4055 Retaking High School Courses The rationale for repeating a class is limited to improving the student s understanding and achievement and/or improving the student s ability to meet post-secondary goals. The transcript will show all grades, including both the original class and the second (retaken) course, with the higher of the two grades included in the GPA. Students may retake a high school course if any of the following conditions are present: A student may be recommended by his/her guidance counselor to repeat a passed course for better understanding when the student is not adequately prepared for the next related course in the series (i.e. Algebra before Geometry) To improve a grade of any kind The student desires to repeat a course to meet the eligibility requirements of the Academics Honors Diploma (AHD). The requirements are: A student must have a grade of not lower than a C- in any course qualifying for the AHD (excepting the course to be repeated), and an overall GPA of an 8.0 (B). Failure of a course required for entrance into post-secondary education When students meet the criteria and request to repeat a course in the next possible semester, the student, the student s parents or guardians, and the counselor will make the decision. If the criteria are not met or there is a lapse of time before 4 5

4 the student asks to repeat a course, the final decision to repeat a course will be made by the school principal. There is no time limit as to when the student must request permission to repeat the class. Board Policy 5160B High School Courses Taken in Middle School from Outside SACS Middle school students matriculating from schools outside SACS must provide evidence of successful completion of high school course work and provide such evidence upon registering for classes at Homestead High School. High school level course work taken while in middle school must be completed at fully accredited schools. When a student has transcripted proof of passing Algbera while in middle school but has NOT passed the ECA, high school credit will not be accepted at Homestead High School. Any high school level courses taken while in middle school must be equivalent to their high school counterpart and be taught by a highly qualified teacher. NOTE: As a rule homeschool credits are not accepted. Board Policy 5160C High School Courses Taken Online While in Middle School Middle school students taking a course online for high school credit must provide evidence of having passed online course from accredited online course providers. Board Policy 5160D High School Online Courses In order to meet individual student needs, SACS desires to provide flexibility in the completion of prescribed courses in accordance with the law as well as IDOE and local policies. This flexibility is designed to provide students every opportunity to complete their high school education and gain admission to higher learning and training. Students may therefore enroll in and receive credit for online courses under the conditions, but only under the conditions, established in written guidelines published by the Superintendent or his designee. The guidelines may approve of online courses for purposes of remediation or acceleration, to take advantage of courses not offered by SACS, as provided for in an IEP or Section 504 Plan, and for other good cause as determined by Superintendent or his designee. Grades Have the Following Percentages and Grade Point Average Values ** Semester grades for AP classes have an alternative grading scale. Students will be given the scale on the 1 st day of class. LETTER GRADE GPA VALUE PERCENTAGE RANGE A A A B B B C C C D D D F Athletic Eligibility IHSAA Guidelines Grade Point Averages The semester grades for each course are computed into the calculation of the student s grade point average (GPA). No courses may be taken Pass/Fail, and all subjects and all grades are included. The letter grade is converted to a 12-point scale. Although a grade average is computed for each individual semester, the GPA is an accumulative grade average. The total grade points are divided by the total credits earned and/or attempted to determine the GPA. Class Rank Class rank is not included on official transcripts. If class rank is needed for scholarship application and or other recognitions, a written request from parents must be received by the student s counselor. All athletes must maintain passing grades in at least five academic classes each grading period in order to remain eligible for IHSAA-sanctioned contests. Eligibility is established at the end of a grading period for the next marking period. A student who does not pass five classes in June is not eligible for fall sports unless he or she attends summer school. This student should contact the Athletic Director and his/her counselor immediately for details. All summer courses must be completed and grades recorded by the first day of fall semester. If a student does not pass five classes in October (1 st nine weeks) the student may not participate in athletic contests until reports cards are issued at the end of the first semester. The semester grades determine eligibility until the next 9 week grades are issued. A student who is academically ineligible may practice at the discretion of the coach but not participate in contests. All students must be registered for five credit classes of which three must be taken at Homestead High School. NCAA Eligibility Guidelines If a student is planning to enroll in college as a freshman and wishes to participate in Division I or Division II athletics, the student must be certified by the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse. The Clearinghouse ensures consistent application of NCAA initial-eligibility requirements for all prospective student athletes at all member institutions. Students planning to register with the NCAA Clearinghouse must complete a form at 6 7

5 NAIA Eligibility Guidelines If a student plans on enrolling in an NAIA Division School, the student must register with the NAIA Clearinghouse to ensure athletic eligibility. Special Opportunities Included in this section are several programs that are multidisciplinary, extend over more than one period, or offer a different learning style. These may be included in any diploma program. Advanced Placement (AP) Program Homestead High School offers Advanced Placement (AP) classes in the areas of science, math, social studies, Spanish and English. The course descriptions are listed in the department sections. These courses are designed to enable students to pursue college-level studies while in high school. The College Board prescribes the content of AP college-level courses. Semester grades for AP classes have an alternative grading scale. AP students will be given the scale on the first day of class. At the completion of an AP course, it is strongly recommended that students take AP exams given nationally in May. Students desiring to use an AP course to achieve an Honors Diplomas must take the AP exam. By taking AP courses and successfully completing the exams, a student may earn college credit and/or advanced placement in college courses. AP courses are designed to be rigorous, challenging, college-level classes. In assessing a student s application, selective colleges will consider if the student is enrolled in the highest level of courses available (rigor). Colleges look favorably upon courses designated as AP since these courses represent higher level content than the standard high school curricula. Students are encouraged to investigate the AP policy of the colleges under consideration as they vary in the scores required for advanced credit. The Senior Experience Block During the senior year, students have the unique opportunity to take Dual Credit classes here at Homestead on a more traditional college schedule. This opportunity can is designed to ease the transition to college as well as remove invisible barriers to college.

The Senior Experience helps students prepare for college while enhancing their time management skills all the while saving vital time and money. It is important to note that there is no guarantee of the transferability of Dual Credit classes and students should consult with the colleges and universities they are considering regarding how these courses will be applied toward their post-secondary degrees. Potential courses are listed in the Senior Experience of this guide. Post Secondary (Dual) Enrollment campus.

Students earn three credits each semester they attend. A total of 12 elective credits may be earned in this program. Many of the programs at Anthis award IVY Tech credit (dual credit). In some circumstances a sophomore may enroll. A description of these courses is included in the Technology Education department. Anthis programs are full year programs. Homestead students may not enroll for only one semester. Positions to attend Anthis are limited and determined by application. Cooperative Education During the senior year a student may enroll in BCE, ME, or ICE. These programs are on-the-job training, with a classroom component. A student earns three credits per semester.

A students may be released for the last two periods if his/her higher education (college) course is an approved 3 credit course and meets after the end of the regular school day or during the last two periods. If the higher education course is a one or two credit college course, the student may opt to be released for one high school period. It is important to note that there is no guarantee of the transferability of Dual Credit classes and students should consult with the colleges and universities they are considering regarding how these courses will be applied toward their post-secondary degrees.

There is no release time for college classes taken on the Homestead Each year Homestead High School creates a new master schedule to accommodate students course requests as shared 8 9

6 with counselors during course selection/registration meetings. Faculty members are employed, textbooks purchased, and rooms assigned on the basis of these requests. A priority is programmed for each student to receive the same teacher each semester for academic courses. This is not a requirement; it is an if possible priority. If a student does NOT receive the same teacher each semester, it is because it cannot be done. All schedule change requests must be addressed by the end of the academic school year. Only errors are corrected after the school year begins. Course Availability All courses require a sufficient number of student registrations to be offered. If there is not sufficient interest in a particular course, it will not be provided during the upcoming school year. Courses may be offered, but not be available to certain grade levels, based on high levels of enrollment. Space and teacher availability may limit the number of sections of a course. Priority for enrollment will be determined by selecting seniors first and freshmen last. This occurs in the elective areas. Academic or required courses are not usually affected. In some cases prospective freshmen will be asked to make an alternate elective selection. Selection of Courses Counselors will meet with their assigned students during the last weeks of the first semester and the beginning of second semester. Students will receive scheduling materials, their current transcripts, and information relevant to specific grade level expectations. Students will be asked to submit final course selections. Students should have determined choices (with classroom teacher input and recommendation and parent participation) and be prepared with questions. It is extremely important that student s come to this meeting prepared. or Teacher Recommendation Only students who have achieved the above criteria will be allowed to select the honors courses during the course selection process. Students wanting to take the Honors English Department exam should complete the testing prior to end of the school year. Students who do not achieve a passing score on this placement test may submit a portfolio of work as an appeal. A School Day The students of Homestead High School must select their courses of study within the framework of the following procedures and suggestions: Students must be enrolled in a full day of classes (7:45 a.m. to 2:35 p.m.) Students must enroll in a minimum of six credit classes and may have no more than one study hall per day. Students may take only one study hall or assistantship per semester, not both. The assistantship program is open to students in grades 10, 11, and 12. Application forms are available from teachers. Refer to the diploma descriptions/graduation requirements on page 8 for a list of required courses for graduation. Recommendations and Course Level Placement Level placement is utilized in English, mathematics, science, social studies, and world and classical languages. All regular courses are traditional college preparatory and are designed to prepare the student for entrance into college and for academic success in the college classroom. Courses designated Honors, AP, and Dual Credit are enriched courses that go into more depth and breadth in content. AP designates Advanced Placement Courses, which follow prescribed course curriculum and are college level courses. AP courses are open to any interested student with sophomore standing or above. Recommendations Recommendations by teachers in English, mathematics, world and classical languages, and science are provided to assist the student and parents in appropriate course selections. The current subject area teachers will take into consideration the student s potential, current academic success and performance, and the level of motivation shown. Counselors urge students to follow the teacher recommendation, but the final decision regarding course selection is the decision of the parent and student, with the following exception: Students not currently enrolled in Alpha math or Honors math courses must be recommended to be placed in an Honors math class. Qualifying for Honors English Students who wish to qualify for an Honors English should have a strong academic record in grade 8 or 9 English (B+ or higher), achievement indicative of student talent and diligence. They must meet ONE of the following qualification criteria: Grade 9 Honors English: NWEA Language Usage Test RIT score of 234 or higher and a NWEA Reading Test RIT score of 237 or higher or a Pass+ designation on the E/LA ISTEP+ test at the end of grade 7 or grade 8 Selecting courses for completing his/her schedule is one of the most important decisions at student will make.

Some departments offer a sequence of courses requiring prerequisites needed before one can enroll in the higher level classes. Students should identify higher level courses of interest and determine courses needed to qualify. Dual Credit Homestead High School provides three methods for students to receive college credit toward the Academic Honors diploma. 1. College credit can be earned by enrolling in an (AP) Advanced Placement course and taking the AP exam at the conclusion of the course. 2. Students may enroll in college courses with free or reduced tuition through dual credit courses taught by Homestead High School faculty who are adjunct professors through local colleges. 3. Students may also take classes on a college/university campus. Classes may be scheduled as part of the regular school day, after school, or during the summer. Course may also be taken on line. Dual credits are transferrable to most Indiana colleges and universities. However, the courses may be counted as electives. Students may enter an early college program where credit options can be used to earn an associate s degree while completing high school credit. It is imperative that students and parents inquire with the institution of higher learning to determine and to validate dual credit value and transferability. or a Passing score on High School Honors English Department Exam that is given Spring Semester.
