COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

Senior High School


Explanation of the Course Descriptions
Information relating to the courses in the schools is provided in paragraphs at the beginning of each section. The course names described are those on official transcripts. The amount of credit for each course follows the title. The maximum number of credits for any course is the highest figure listed. Variable credit may be awarded as indicated. These credits (i.e., ROP, Work Experience)count for transfer to other high schools. Some advanced courses require a specific grade level requirement, preliminary training, a previous course and/or specific ability. The brief description of each course points out distinguishing characteristics, content, and special relationships to other courses. Class enrollment, staff, and facilities in the schools are not identical therefore variations exist. The ROP section deals only with course titles and/or abbreviations used for transcript information.

New Course Adoption


New courses can be proposed for consideration for adoption at least one year prior to their implementation. A course template must be submitted when proposing a new course. New Courses must contain all of the elements in the attached appendix for a district course of study in order to gain full approval. Courses must receive the approval of the district department chairs and principals prior to receiving districtlevel approval.

Pilot Courses
Courses may be piloted after receiving approval through the Education Division. Approval to pilot a course is allowed under specific conditions when it is evident that the trial period is warranted for an innovative course. At the completion of the piloting period, final approval must come from district department chairs and principals before receiving final districtlevel approval. When proposing a new course or requesting to pilot a course, approval to begin the process must be granted by the Assistant Superintendent of Education.
