    curricular updates occur information in this
    document may become outdated. The most current
    version of the Course Description Booklet is
    posted on the Jasper High School Website. The

    preparation courses in a state-approved College

12
General Diploma
  • Beginning with students who enter high school in
    2007-2008, completion of Core 40 becomes a
    graduation requirement.
  • A general diploma is only available to students
    whose parents feel students are unable to
    complete the Core 40 curriculum.
  • To graduate with less than Core 40, a formal
    Opt-out process must be completed.
  • Beginning in fall 2011, Core 40 will be an
    admissions requirement to attend a public
    four-year university in Indiana (Core 40 is a
    minimum requirement colleges may have
    additional admissions requirements).

13
Core 40 Opt-Out Triggers
  • A parent may request that a student be exempted
    from the Core 40 curriculum and be required to
    complete the general diploma to graduate, or
  • The student does not pass at least three (3)
    courses required under the Core 40 curriculum, or
  • The student receives a score on the graduation
    examination that is in the twenty-fifth
    percentile or lower when taking the graduation
    exam for the first time.
  • If the decision is made to opt-out of Core 40,
    the student is required to complete the
    course/credit requirements for a general diploma
    and the career/academic sequence the student will
    pursue is determined.

14
Core 40 Opt-Out Process
  • The student, the students parent/guardian, and
    the students counselor meet to discuss the
    students progress.
  • The students career/course plan is reviewed.
  • The students parent/guardian determines whether
    the student will achieve greater educational
    benefits by completing the general curriculum or
    the Core 40 curriculum.

15
General Diploma
English 8 credits Eng 9, 10, 11 and a senior English course
Mathematics 6 credits Must include 2 credits in Algebra I
Social Studies 6 credits World History (full year) US History (full year) Government Econ (1 semester each)
Science 6 credits Biology I and two more science courses
Health 1 credit 1 semester
PE 2 credits 2 semesters
Career Academic Sequence 6 credits Electives selected to take advantage of career exploration
Local Graduation Requirement 1 credit Students need to complete 1 semester of Preparation for College and Careers
Electives 5 credits Any combination of courses
Total Credits 40 credits
16
A Change from Middle School
  • At the end of a semester, if you complete courses
    with a passing grade of D- or better, you earn
    one credit in each of those courses.
  • If you fail a required course - you must repeat
    each semester of all required classes until you
    earn the credit.

17
COURSE RETAKE/GRADE REPLACEMENT
  • A grade retake/replacement occurs when a student
    retakes a class that he/she has already taken to
    hopefully receive a better grade. A student who
    receives below a C- on a course may retake that
    course for credit. The second grade earned will
    replace the original gradeno matter what the
    gradeand shall count for grade point average and
    class rank. The original grade will remain on
    the transcript with the credit for that class
    being transferred to the second class. A student
    may take advantage of this option up to two times
    in his/her high school career. This would allow
    a student trying to earn an Indiana Academic
    Honors diploma an opportunity to retake a class
    where he/she might have received below a C-, thus
    giving him/her an opportunity to keep his/her
    Academic Honors diploma.
  • Students may not use on-line credit recovery
    classes for retakes

18
Not to Worry
  • We have seven periods in each day.
  • If you take just six classes each semester, and
    pass all your classes, you will graduate with 48
    credits.

19
Course Recommendations In a move to make all
course offerings available to our students, we
are removing prerequisites from most course
offerings at Jasper High School. On its merit,
this move is designed to give any student an
opportunity to take the most rigorous course
offerings at our school. It is also designed to
give students an opportunity to take the courses
that best fit into their future
opportunities. The teacher of each course has
built course recommendations for the curriculum
required within each course. These
recommendations should be taken seriously as the
rigor of a course will not be adjusted to fit
students who might not be academically talented
enough to handle the rigor of our most
challenging content offerings.  It is our
belief that the student and his/her parents must
have the opportunity to select course offerings
that best suit the students individual needs.
It will be necessary for patrons to approach the
selection of courses for their student with a
realistic mindset.

English
  • English 9 or English 9, Honors
  • ENGLISH 9, HONORS includes all of the
    requirements for the regular English 9 class and
    morewith major emphasis being placed on the
    reading of classic world literature texts.
    Students in the honors class will write
    extensively, and all written work must exceed
    normal expectations in terms of creativity,
    development, clarity, structure, and mechanical
    precision. Vocabulary development will
    concentrate on an extensive study of Greek and
    Latin derivatives as preparation for the SAT.
    Students in this class will participate in
    several projects and engage in a variety of
    speaking situations. It must be clearly
    understood that honors students will be held to a
    higher academic standard overall. Students who
    cannot work independently, those who do not
    complete assignments correctly or on time, and
    those who do not wish to participate fully in the
    spirit of the class should not enroll. Honor
    students are defined by their exceptional reading
    ability and their enjoyment of and competence in
    writing. Successful students must be mature
    individuals who are willing to put in the time
    necessary to do quality work. A summer reading
    assignment is required for this course. This
    course is NOT required for the academic honors
    diploma.
