COURSE CATALOG 2017 - 18

General Information

This course guide gives you information about all courses that may be offered in Clover Park School District’s (CPSD) Open Doors Program. Open Doors may integrate and combine courses, and may change the sequence of courses, but its curriculum will still satisfy the same basic requirements as other district courses.

SUCCESS COUNSELING

One of the benefits of this program is a Success Counselor that will know you well and check in with you every week. The purpose is to provide you a resource to communicate needs and identify ways to support you in and out of school. You meet weekly with a success counselor. Success counselors support you in identifying and monitoring graduation goals, advocating for you, identifying and helping you navigate barriers to education, and developing relationships with your family to support your success.

COMMUNITY SERVICE GRADUATION REQUIREMENT

Students must earn five (5) hours of Community Service per school year in attendance at CPSD as one of their graduation requirements. Students may begin to earn these hours once they complete their eighth (8th) grade year. The five hours may be earned all at one time, or in any manner that meets the student’s schedule, during each of his/her high school years, but must be completed prior to the student’s participation in a commencement ceremony and the granting of a diploma.

Community Service is any service that is done for nonprofit agencies and organizations and/or religious organizations. School service is also included. To assure that the service is appropriate for this requirement, refer to the guidelines on the Verification of Community Service Form. If students have a problem with locating an agency or finding a way to meet this requirement, they should work with their success counselor.

OPEN DOORS PROGRAM

Open Doors is a 1418 Youth Reengagement Program housed at Clover Park High School. The program offers an AM and a PM session for students to participate in a blended learning model with highly qualified teachers supporting student learning using Edgenuity online curriculum. Each student develops a personalized graduation plan which is tracked through weekly success counseling. Students may attend a daily schedule, or develop a special schedule to accommodate individual needs and barriers to attendance.

Students must make progress at least once every three months to maintain program eligibility. The Clover Park Youth Open Doors Reengagement Program uses the following progress indicators to define academic progress:

  • Earned credit of at least .25
  • Met non-credit graduation requirement
  • Pass state assessment requirement

Students graduate from the Clover Park School District Open Doors Youth Reengagement program with a high school diploma from the Open Doors Program. Students must complete the WA State graduation requirements for their cohort year as defined by the State Board of Education to earn this diploma. See Credit Evaluation charts on pages 4, 5 and 6.

SCHOOL PROGRAM

Academic courses are defined as those in the department of English, world language, mathematics, science, social studies, and other courses. The State Board of Education determines the numerical value of letter grades: A = 4.0 B = 3.0 C = 2.0 D+ = 1.3 A- = 3.7 B- = 2.7 C- = 1.7 D = 1.0 B+ = 3.3 C+ = 2.3 F = 0.0 A pass/fail option is used in place of the A-F grading scale in a course not classified as an academic course and not required for graduation. A Pass/Fail grade will not be figured in the grade point if a “P” grade is earned. An “F” grade will, however, be included in determining the grade point average.

HIGH SCHOOL COURSE REQUIREMENTS FOR COLLEGE ENTRANCE

All colleges strongly recommend a varied, indepth, academic course of study. Students should take as many “core” courses as possible: English, mathematics, science, social studies and world language. All student schedules should contain creative arts and skill courses to complement core studies.

Applications for admission to Washington 2-year and 4-year institutions are available on-line or from your counselor. Admission forms for out-of-state colleges must be obtained on-line or by writing to the admissions office of that institution. Complete the application forms and make arrangements with the counselor to send a transcript. Transcripts should be requested from the School Registrar.

The state supported four-year colleges generally require a 2.5 or higher grade average for your 9th, 10th and 11th grades. Private colleges often have no specific grade average requirements, but the higher your grades — so long as these grades are in academic courses — the greater your chances of being accepted and succeeding when enrolled. Community colleges in Washington require that you have a high school diploma and have passed a placement test. The following sample is considered a strong college preparatory schedule in the State of Washington:

RECOMMENDED COURSE AREA

English....................................................4 years
College Preparatory Math..........................4 years
(through 2nd year Algebra or higher)
Science (2 years laboratory)........................3 years
World Language.......................................3 years
Social Studies........................................3.5 years
Arts.......................................................... 1 year
Additional Electives from the above areas...................... 1-1/2 full years

STATE REQUIRED TESTING

Twelfth grade students (Class of 2016) and those classes thereafter in the state of Washington, are required to meet standard on the state required assessments. The purpose of these assessments is to measure student achievement against the grade level expectations that are statewide standards and is an assessment of a student’s ability to understand and apply knowledge in Reading, Writing, Mathematics and Science. Students should check with their counselor about what is required for their specific graduation year as it varies. See Policy CPSD 2410 and www.k12.wa.us/assessment/statetesting/default.aspx
