3 3 WELCOME Dear Students and Parents, The Little Miami High School Course Description Guide has been prepared to help develop your four year plan as a high school student and to choose courses for the school year. A number of changes have taken place regarding coursework that is mandated through the Ohio Department of Education; make sure to check required courses and graduation requirements thoroughly. This guide includes essential information concerning athletic and extracurricular eligibility, course descriptions, and educational options apart from a traditional high school program. Little Miami High School is an original member of the High Schools That Work (HSTW) Improvement Model. This model has proven to be a solid basis for all students to attain success in their high school experience. Our expectation at Little Miami High School follows this model so that all students work hard and learn in order to become productive citizens. Rigorous coursework has been proven to have a positive impact on the academic and career preparation of all students, and students are most likely to complete a college degree if they have been engaged in demanding coursework over their four years of high school. Take time to read this description guide thoroughly and use it as a planning tool. As a family, discuss course selections while thinking seriously about meeting future goals. The guidance staff has developed recommended student programs geared toward career paths and postsecondary options that will give you direction in your choices. The high school staff is able to answer questions and help you through this process at any time. The learning opportunities provided at Little Miami High School will provide a solid foundation for a successful future in any chosen career. Together we will make these four years a rewarding and effective foundation from which to build your future.

7 7 PLANNING THE LITTLE MIAMI SEMESTER Little Miami High School operates on a semester schedule. This schedule divides the school year into two semesters of approximately 90 days each. In each semester, students will take a minimum of six courses. The periods are 46 minutes in length, and each semester course is worth one-half unit of credit (except physical education which is onefourth). Each student has the first five days of a semester class or first five days of a full year class to make schedule changes. Students are making a full year commitment when they enroll in a full year course. PLANNING A HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM A good student record is the best recommendation a graduate can offer a college or a prospective employer. All colleges require an exact transcript of courses taken while in attendance in high school, as well as a recommendation from the high school counselor, teacher, or a principal. Employers will often request similar information. It is important for a student to maintain average or above average grades, or show improvement throughout high school. The pupil who shows improvement, rather than tapering off or declining during his/her last year, is in a more competitive position. (Most colleges and employers are interested in the student s record of attendance. A poor attendance record affects a student s chances of being admitted and/or competing for a job after graduation.) STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES It is the students responsibility to meet all graduation requirements. Students must meet all academic requirements, state testing requirements, and financial obligations to receive a diploma. WEIGHTED CLASSES Honors and Advanced Placement courses are weighted courses. Students earning credit for a weighted course will receive a.05 add-on, to be added to the cumulative grade point average upon successful completion of each weighted course. For grades 9-10, an A, B, or C will receive the add-on. For grades 11-12, only an A or a B will receive the add-on. SCHEDULE CHANGE REQUESTS Counselors and teachers offer assistance during the selection of courses for each school year. The scheduling process for the following school year will begin during the second semester of the current school year. Parents and students should recognize the number of school-wide decisions that rest upon their subject choices: the number and size of classes are determined, teachers are hired, and budget allocations are made. This is to ensure that the district is being economically responsible and all resources are utilized appropriately. Students may drop or add year long classes up to the fifth day of the 1st semester without penalty. Students may drop a semester class up to the fifth day of each semester without penalty. After these dates, courses dropped will receive a grade of WF (withdraw fail). Students may NOT drop a class required for graduation, or a year long class during the 2 nd semester.
8 8 SUMMER SCHOOL Students who fail a core course are expected to take summer school classes in order to make up credit to stay on track for graduation. Courses will not be offered at LMHS; however classes can be taken with online vendors or at the Warren County Educational Service Center. METHOD OF DETERMINING GRADE POINT AVERAGE A cumulative GPA is calculated for all high school level courses based on the number of credits received from weighted and unweighted courses. Cumulative GPAs are used by high schools to determine class rank and graduation honors, eligibility for the National Honor Society (NHS), by colleges as part of the admission criteria, by many scholarship and grant providers, and occasionally, by employers. This information is reported to parents and students on the student s high school transcript. The high school transcript is a record of all final course grades received for high school level courses. The LMHS grading scale is 90% and higher A, 80%-89% B, 70%-79% C, 60%-69% D, 59% and lower is an F. All failures result in zero credit. Other than classes that are failed, classes cannot be repeated. CLASS FEES Each spring the Board of Education establishes student fee schedules for the next school year. By custom, fee levels are established in June and take effect that next school year. Students and parents are therefore advised that the fees referenced in the High School Course Description Guide are approximate amounts and subject to change. Students will be given a breakdown of course fees in August and again in January.

17 17 OHIO DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION TESTING REQUIRMENTS Graduating Classes of 2016 and 2017 Students must pass all 5 Ohio Graduation Tests with a score of at least proficient. Alternative Way to Meet the Testing Requirements: A student may meet the testing requirements for passing all five Ohio Graduation Tests if he/she meets ALL of the following criteria: Passes four of the five tests and has missed passing the fifth test by no more than 10 points Has a 97 percent attendance rate, excluding any excused absences, through all four years of high school Has not been expelled from school in any of the last four school years Has at least a grade point average of 2.5 out of 4.0 in the courses of the subject area not yet passed Has completed the high school curriculum requirement Has participated in any intervention programs offered by the school and must have had a 97 percent attendance rate in any programs offered outside the normal school day Has letters recommending graduation from the high school principal and from each high school teacher in the subject area not yet passed. NOTE: As specified in the Ohio Revised Code (Section ), this alternative way to meet the testing requirement applies only to students graduating after Sept. 15, Graduating Classes Beginning with the Class of 2018 and Beyond: Students will earn points toward graduation by completing seven end-of-course exams. These exams will replace the Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT). The courses in which students take an end-of-course exam will be: English I and II, algebra I, geometry, integrated math I and II, physical science, American history and American government. Beginning in districts may have the option to use the state end-ofcourse exams to replace their current course final exams and use the state s test as part of the class grade. This will help avoid double testing in future years. Students can earn from 1-5 points for each exam, based on their performance. 5 Advanced 4 Accelerated 3 Proficient 2 Basic 1 Limited Students who take physical science, American history or American government as part of Advanced Placement or college dual credit programs can use their scores from the programs end-of-course exams in place of the state end-of-course exam scores to accumulate graduation points.
18 A student who earned high school credit in any of the above courses before July 1, 2014, automatically will receive a score of three points per course exam toward the total points needed for graduation. Middle school students this year who take one of these courses for high school credit must take the corresponding state end-of-course exam in this school year. Students that score below proficient on an exam may retake it after they receive some extra help on the material. Students that score proficient or higher on an end of course exam can retake exams only if, once they take all the exams, they have not met the minimum graduation points to graduate. In this case, a student can retake any exam after receiving some extra help on the material. The same rules apply to substitute exams, which may be used interchangeably with approved tests. Graduation Points: With few exceptions, students must accumulate a minimum of 18 points from scores on their end of course exams to become eligible for a diploma. More Flexibility for Students and Families: Students who do not earn the required number of graduation points can still meet the requirements for a diploma if they earn a remediation-free score on a national college admission test. This assessment will be given to students free of charge in the fall of their junior year starting with the graduating class of Students also can qualify for graduation by earning an approved industry-recognized credential and achieving a workforce-readiness score on a related job skills assessment. The selection of those assessments is in progress. 18

A student enrolled in the first grading period after advancement from the eighth grade must have passed a minimum of five of all subjects carried the preceding grading period. All fall athletes will qualify academically by their performance in the last 9 week grading period of the preceding school year. There is a weekly grade check to determine weekly eligibility. Athletes cannot re-establish athletic eligibility by taking coursework in summer school. Weekly grade checks are completed by the Athletic Director. Teachers record all weekly grades in Progress Book. The cumulative grade averages from the beginning of the quarter are used to determine weekly eligibility. The previous week s grade check determines the following week s status.
