    • Example 9th grade English *Semester 1- 60 *Semester 2- 80 *No yearly average

    (Student fails 1st semester and the .5 credit must be made up)

  • Rising 9th Grade Teacher Instructional Level Recommendations

    Teachers will make instructional level course recommendations using a combination of the following:

    • Current academic performance (grade)

    • Unit (summative) assessments

    • 7th Grade Georgia Milestone Results

    • Work Habits/Recovery Attempts

    If you have questions/concerns regarding the teacher recommendation(s), please contact the subject area teacher directly.

  • Balance • Current teachers will use course academic performance and test data to make recommendations for 9th grade

    courses . Teachers make these recommendations independently of other courses. Thus, a student may be

    recommended for all honors and advanced placement courses. You and your student must then decide/determine

    the best choice - but, remember, balance!

    • Weigh academic course load with other activities in which your child would like to be involved.

    • Evaluate your student’s response to stress and pressure.

    • Is your student proactive and self-motivated to seek academic assistance/support.

    • The pattern of course rigor should increase as students progress, not decrease.

    • Make a decisions that are in the best interest of your student. You will have 2 to 3 opportunities to finalize core

    course placement and elective requests. There are minimal changes at the high school level. Please return your

    forms on time.

    Instructional Levels

    There aren’t any homework guidelines or average homework times for high school. The

    completion of assignments or preparation varies from student to student.

  • Accelerated Course Offerings - But, not Honors

    An accelerated course is a course that is at least one year ahead of the grade

    level. It is possible for a student to be recommended for an accelerated course,

    but not honors.

    9th Grade Accelerated Non Honors Course Offerings

    10th Grade Literature

    10th Grade Geometry

    These courses do not receive an additional 7 points

  • HONORS COURSES -

    The curriculum is developed by the state, school system or specific school to meet the

    needs of talented students. An Honors class has a similar curriculum offered in the

    corresponding regular class, but may cover additional topics or some cover topics in

    greater depth and detail

    AP (ADVANCED PLACEMENT) COURSES

    These courses are designed to prepare students to take the College Board sponsored

    Advanced Placement (AP) exam. These national curricula are developed by both high

    school and college teachers under the guidance of the College Board. Most universities

    award college credit based on certain achieved AP exam scores.

    Both, Honors and AP courses, receive 7 additional points to the semester ending grade.

    The student must achieve a minimum grade of 70 to receive the additional 7 points.
