Planning Your Education

Your school provides this course curriculum guide as a means of assisting students and parents in planning their high school course of study. Consideration should be given to planning the entire four year program with specific outcomes in mind. Is the student planning on attending a two or four-year college? Is the student planning to enter the military or the work force upon graduation? The successful student will plan based on goals that he and his parents establish upon completion of high school. Therefore, students are encouraged to carefully select courses during the registration process. Your school's guidance counselors and teachers stand ready to assist them. Parents are invited and encouraged to actively participate by assisting their student.

Classes are scheduled based upon student requests. However, due to schedule conflicts and changes in course offerings, the staff cannot guarantee that students will be scheduled for all courses they request. Therefore, it is very important that students list alternatives in case of class conflicts. In addition, be aware that the school builds a master schedule and employs teachers based on students' requests; therefore, schedule changes after the deadline will only be considered on a very limited basis. Students should see their guidance counselor for a list of the schedule change requests that will be honored and the deadline by which these requests must be submitted.

Online Registration

Online Registration was implemented in 2004. It allows parents and students to request related arts courses for the next school year from home via the Internet. Families who do not have access to the Internet will be given opportunities to use school computers to register online. Parents and students should understand that requesting a related arts course through online registration does not guarantee that the student is placed in the course the next school year. Final placement in a course is dependent upon enrollment, scheduling feasibility, and teacher allocation. Parents without Internet access at home will receive a printed copy of the course curriculum guide by request. The window for students to select related arts courses online is posted by the school on the school's website and in parent newsletters. Schools will provide instructions on accessing the online registration tool.

IGPs, Career Clusters and Personal Pathways to Success

The South Carolina Education and Economic Development Act (EEDA) requires school districts to develop a curriculum organized around the career cluster system–16 career clusters, schools of study, and majors. In the organization of the district curriculum around the career cluster system, Greenville County Schools divided the 16 career clusters into six schools of study. These six schools of study include School of Arts, Communication and Information Technology; Business, Marketing and Management; Environmental and Agricultural Systems; Health Science; Human Resources and Services; and Industrial Manufacturing and Engineering Systems. Under each school of study a student will find related career clusters. The career clusters are then broken down into academic focus areas (majors) that students may choose based on interests and skills.

Personal Pathways to Success is the name given to this reorganization of the curriculum which is designed to help students take control of planning for their futures. Personal Pathways to Success provides the solid mix of academic and technical skills students need to compete in the global economy. It gives students a reason to achieve in school by connecting success in school with success in life. It maintains South Carolina's core academic requirements while opening up pathways to success for students no matter where they lead – to two-year colleges, four-year colleges or universities, the military, or directly into the workforce. Students, parents, and counselors work together to develop Individual Graduation Plans (IGP) that specify a student's cluster, academic focus (major), post-secondary goals, planned high school activities, and planned out-of-class activities. The Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) is a document that states the student's intentions related to courses that are taken during high school. The IGP is initiated in the 8th grade with the choice of a cluster area. When the IGP is updated in the 10th grade, the student will select an academic focus (major) within their cluster of choice. Students will utilize Naviance, a comprehensive college and career readiness tool, to help them align their strengths and interests to their career goals. The courses that are taken are determined by the student's interests. It can be modified over time as interests and skills develop or change. The IGP is like a road map to the future: if the student stays on course, the student will reach the destination – graduation – with all the courses, skills and experience needed to take his education or career to the next level. Each year the student, parents/guardians, and counselors will review and update the plans for the coming year. Switching clusters or majors is okay -- as the high school years progress and the student learns more about his interests and skills there are bound to be changes in choice of coursework.

*Credit for a course will be awarded for a grade of 60 or above. A score of 59 or below will result in no credit for that course.

Grade point ratios will be figured uniformly in all schools using the following formula. The formula will yield each student's GPR which can then be ranked from highest to lowest rank in class. Computations will not be rounded to a higher number. All diploma candidates are included in the ranking.

GPR =
sum([quality points] x [units])
sum of units attempted

College Admission Requirements

Usually college admissions requirements are far beyond the minimum requirements for high school graduation. Students who plan to attend college should consult catalogs of colleges to assure that they are choosing the right courses. Colleges also look at the GPA and class rank as well as College Entrance Exam scores such as the SAT or ACT for admission.

Guidelines for Courses

State Dept. of Education regulations and Greenville County Schools Board of Trustee policies/rules that relate to high school course offerings offer the following guidance:

The Fine Arts Center of Greenville County, the first specialized arts school in South Carolina, was established in August of 1974. The Center serves students from 14 district schools, from private, charter and homes schools, and students from outside Greenville County who pay a yearly tuition to attend. The purpose of the Fine Arts Center is to provide advanced comprehensive arts instruction to students who are artistically talented and who wish to take an intensive pre-professional program of study. Students who apply to the Fine Arts Center are selected on the basis of talent, motivation and commitment to their discipline, as indicated by academic records, a teacher recommendation and an audition/interview. Students who are interested in applying should contact either their school’s counselor or the Fine Arts Center counselor to receive instructions on completing the application process. Students attend the Fine Arts Center five days a week in the morning or afternoon for 110 minutes of instruction, spending the remainder of their time in academic studies at the home high school. Curricula are rigorous and fast-paced and most are equivalent to college level courses. The faculty are highly trained and widely experienced. The students are studying with active and successful artists. Each year approximately 400 students attend the Fine Arts Center, and of that number, many go on to receive local, state and national honors, awards, and scholarships. http://www.fineartscenter.net/

New Tech Network (NTN) Partnership 
Carolina High School has joined the New Tech Network. “The New Tech design provides an instructional approach centered on project-based learning, a culture that empowers students and teachers, and integrated technology in the classroom. Our hands-on, multi-year approach gives schools structure and support to ensure long-term success.” (www.newtechnetwork.org) 

Beginning in the ninth grade, students will participate in project and problem based learning that is contextual, creative and shared.” Students will take integrated courses that link various required content areas and use technology to support instructional learning. Students will have one-to-one web-enabled computing that will allow them to work collaboratively and take control of the overall learning experience. Teachers will serve as facilitators and afford students the opportunity to become content experts in ways that support their learning styles. The ultimate goal is to create a learning culture that promotes trust, respect and responsibility. 

How will the Project Based Learning approach be implemented at Carolina? 
Carolina offers a series of integrated courses that link content standards such that the learning experience for students is authentic and meaningful. Teachers incorporate academic rigor through various teaching strategies and seek opportunities for students to apply new skills and knowledge to realistic complex tasks. Students engage in active exploration and inquiry while being assessed in a variety of ways to support comprehensive learning. Projects are developed to support this framework creating opportunities for students to take their understanding to a more detailed and personal level. 

What are Integrated Courses? 
Integrated courses are classes that are linked together to provide a more comprehensive understanding in concepts in both areas. Students will still be enrolled in courses that are required for graduation, however, the approach to federal guidelines.
 
Integrated Courses  Course Title
English 1: Literature and World History Humanities
English 3:  American Literature and Professional Leadership and Development Literature & Leadership


What type of technology are students required to have? 
Students will be assigned personal electronic devices after receipt of the on-time $5.00 payment. Students have the option of bringing their own devices to support their instruction and learning.

How will this affect my student’s ability to graduate? 
Each integrated course is linked to at least one course required for graduation. Students will still have the opportunity to take elective courses as a part on their course of study. This course of study may allow students to graduate early or open up opportunities for additional coursework. 

Will my student still be able to participate in the magnet program? 
Yes, students in the PLTW: Engineering or Health Sciences program will still be a part of NTN course of study. These courses will be taught in a similar style as the integrated courses and will still allow them to complete the requirements to earn the Magnet Distinction Award.
