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:

Registering for a Career Center Course

All students who wish to register for a Career Center program are to contact either their school’s counselor or a counselor at the Career Center to receive instructions on completing the application process.

Fine Arts Center Program

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/

Important Dates


January 20-31, 2021 - Teachers make course recommendations for students in the scheduling system.

Virtual/Available on School Website - Curriculum and Information Night at J. L. Mann High school.  Parents may speak with teachers and counselors about courses (virtual/teachers available via email and phone). 
February 23 - April 23, 2021 - Guidance counselors will meet with students to make individual course requests.
April 23, 2021 - Deadline for any requests for changes to course requests and/or parent overrides to recommendations.
June 2021 - Student schedules finalized for 2021-2022.

 

Schedule Changes


In order to build a master schedule that best meets the needs of students, the quantity and scheduling of specific courses must be based on student course requests. Changes to student schedules following the completion of the master schedule negatively impacts class size. Students should choose courses carefully during the registration process since in most cases requests for schedule changes will not be honored after April 23, 2021.

 

 

Parental Override Requests: Teachers recommend students for core courses based on a variety of indicators. If a parent disagrees with a recommendation, then they should contact that teacher. If a parent wishes to request an override of the teacher's recommendation then the parent must sign a parental override form. A student who later experiences academic difficulty due to a parental override will not be eligible for a schedule change. All parental override requests must ultimately be approved by the principal. A parental override request does not guarantee a student's placement into the requested course.  All parental override requests must be received by April 23, 2021.

Misplacement
: If a student is determined to be misplaced due to a teacher recommendation, then their schedule may be adjusted after the start of the course following a parent/teacher conference. These adjustments should occur within the first grading period.

 

 
Schedule Change Requests
: Every effort should be made to ensure that students request appropriate classes during the registration process.  Students will meet with their guidance counselors to review graduation requirements and individual course of studies.  Requests for course changes will be considered after April 23, 2021 only in the event of extenuating circumstances. The administration will review such requests on an individual basis and base all decisions per the Greenville County Schools policy manual. A Schedule Change Request form is available in the guidance department and must be completed before any schedule change will be considered.


Open Periods


All 9th-11th graders must be scheduled in classes for all seven periods. Students who are classified as a senior may choose to have open periods for up three periods each day. Students should sign up for either morning or afternoon open period(s). While every effort will be made to provide the open period of choice, a student's schedule will first be determined by the availability and placement of required classes within the school's master schedule. To be eligible for an open period(s), students must meet all of the following criteria:


-- Student is classified as a senior
-- Student is enrolled in the courses needed to complete the requirements of the SC High School Diploma 
-- Student is scheduled for a minimum of four class periods per day 
-- Student's parent/guardian petitions the school by completing the Early Dismissal Request Form
-- Student has available transportation to arrive at school on time or leave immediately following their final class of the day
 
No open periods will be provided in the middle of the school day, and students may not be on campus during their assigned open periods without administrative authorization.

 


Students must complete the Early Dismissal Request form and submit it during the registration process. Failure to do will result in the denial of an early dismissal and the student will be registered for alternate classes. 

 

Magnet Program Requirements


Any student at J.L. Mann Academy (not just students who enroll at Mann through the magnet application process) may choose to follow the track that leads to a diploma with magnet distinction. Recognition and a special medal to wear at graduation await those students who successfully complete the requirements of the four-year program. Students must meet yearly requirements in one of three pathways (Technology, Mathematics, or Science) in order to maintain their magnet status. All inquiries regarding the magnet program should be directed to the program coordinator.
