Academic Planning Guide

January 2019
 
 
 
A Note to Students and Parents
 
The selection of courses is one of the most significant decisions a student makes in his or her high school career. This Academic Planning Guide contains information regarding graduation requirements and all courses offered at Honeoye Central School. We hope this will give you a greater understanding of the high school curriculum and the opportunities it provides.
Please review this information carefully and use it to help plan the student’s educational program. Group and individual sessions between students and counselors take place every year so that students can make informed decisions and reexamine those decisions as they progress through high school. Every student in grades 8-12 will participate in an individual academic review with his or her counselor every year. Parent conferences will be scheduled upon request.
In selecting courses, students should keep in mind their interests, abilities, college and career goals, as well as the development of a broad educational background.
We are confident that a well-designed planning process will result in many satisfying and rewarding experiences for each student. Please feel free to call or email us if you have questions or concerns regarding this important activity.
Sincerely,
Tina Rasmussen, Grades 9-12 SchoolCounselor
 
Evan Carrier, Grades K-8 School Counselor

Upperclassmen have priority in overcrowded classes.
 
Regents Exam Retests - Any student may elect to retake a Regents exam if they have completed the proper prerequisites and preparation. Students should review this with their counselor or teacher of the course. Any January retakes must be requested to the high school counselor by October 1st.
 
Course Cancellation - Honeoye Central School reserves the right to discontinue, postpone or cancel classes due to budgetary constraints or staffing changes.

ACADEMIC EXPECTATIONS
Attendance - Classroom attendance is a vital component of every student’s education. Students with excessive class absences are at risk of not receiving course credit.
 
Passing Mark - The passing mark is 65. In order to receive credit for a course the final average must be 65 or more.
• Local course final averages are computed by using the four quarter averages and the final exam mark, with each counting 20% of the final average. Regents course final averages are calculated with each quarter counting as 22% and the Regents Exam counting as 12%.
• For half-year courses the two-quarter marks are counted 2/5 each and the final exam 1/5 in determining the final average.
 
Passing a Regents Exam does not guarantee credit for the course. In order to receive course credit, the final average must be 65 or above.

ACADEMIC ELIGIBILITY AND STATUS
Students must maintain academic eligibility to access any and all privileges.
Academic status levels are:

ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTS
Academic Performance and Recognitions:
Honor Roll (85 – 89.9 vertical average) - To receive a certificate for the year a student must have an average of 85-89.9 for the first three report card periods.
Principal’s Honor Roll (90 - 94.9 vertical average) - Students who maintain an average of 90 to 94.9 for the first three marking periods receive a pin and certificate signifying this high academic achievement.
Staff Honors (95 - 100 vertical average) Students who maintain a 95 or above average for the first three quarters receive an Olympic-style medallion, which may be worn around the neck over graduation gowns. Staff Honors are the highest academic awards given at Honeoye Central School.
 
Class Rank and GPA Computation
Averages of all courses except Physical Education are used to determine a student’s Grade Point Average (GPA) and Class Rank. Final grades in college-level courses (AP, Gemini, SUPA) are increased by 5% in the GPA calculation. GPA is computed after each semester. Class rank is computed after the 5th, 6th and 7th semesters of high school.
 
College Preparatory Program
Honeoye Central School strongly recommends that students planning to continue their education beyond high school enroll in the most rigorous courses that they are able to successfully complete. We recommend that students continue to study mathematics for all four years of high school. We recommend complimenting the Advanced Regents Diploma program with college-level courses to gain the best preparation and opportunities for college success.
 
Advanced Placement Program
Advanced courses are available to students who exhibit superior skills and demonstrate an interest in and willingness to achieve. These courses are geared to the freshman college level, thus requiring a substantial commitment of time and effort by the student. Students must meet admissions criteria. Tuition is charged by the college.
 
Students can earn college credit through FLCC’s Gemini Program and/or Syracuse University’s SUPA program. In some courses, the Advanced Placement (AP) Exam is administered in May. Students who achieve a successful grade on this exam may, at the discretion of the chosen college, receive college credit and/or advanced placement status.
 
The basic premises of the Advanced Placement Program are that many high school students are ready for college freshman work and such ability should be recognized, given encouragement, and rewarded.

SUMMER SCHOOL
Summer school is provided to students who have failed courses and/or tests already taken in the regular school environment. It is not consistent with the philosophies of the District to utilize summer school courses for acceleration at District expense. Only those students who encounter scheduling conflicts will be allowed to take summer school courses for the first time at District expense. However, credit will be accepted for those who meet course requirements in summer school for those students and families who wish to utilize summer school for acceleration purposes at the respective families’ expense. The cost to the families must be prepaid prior to summer school enrollment.
If a student fails a regular school year course and he/she wishes to be eligible for the course(s) in summer school, the student must have attained a minimum final average of 55% or better in the course that he/she wish to enroll in the summer school program offering. All course-required projects (example – senior portfolio, etc.), thesis papers, science lab requirements and assessments (does not include homework and normal unit/lesson assessments) that can not be offered in summer school, must be completed prior to summer school participation, in the regular 40-week academic school year.
No summer school student may miss more than two days of classes to receive credit. Students enrolled in summer school physical education courses may not miss more than one day of class to receive credit. Students who exceed the allowable absences under the attendance requirements will be dismissed from all affected summer school courses.
 
DUAL CREDIT AND EARLY COLLEGE ADMISSION
The Dual Credit/Early College Admission Program was set up by the Honeoye Central School Board of Education in 1975 to provide highly motivated, academically oriented seniors the opportunity to start college before high school graduation while at the same time completing high school graduation requirements. Students accepted into the program must enroll in an accredited college and take courses equivalent to the high school course needed to complete diploma requirements.
 
Guidelines for acceptance into the program are:
1) Rank in the top 1/3 of their class.
2) Pass the New York State Regents Examination in English 11 and U.S. History and Government with a minimum mark of 80.
3) Present 3 letters of recommendation from current teachers. (One each must be from English 11 and U.S. History teachers and the third a teacher of their choice.)
4) Be accepted by an accredited college as a full time student (12 semester hours or more).
5) Have full support and approval of parents/guardians.
6) Submit a one-page essay outlining goals, the purpose of the program and the courses of study planned.
7) Students applying to the program and their parents must meet with the School Counselor to review the application, the student's and parent's responsibilities, and Honeoye Central School's role.
 
No more than 5% of the senior class will be accepted into the program.  Applications must be submitted prior to June 1 of the Junior year. It is the responsibility of the student to maintain contact with Honeoye Central School through the Counseling Center and to provide documentation of their program and progress. Students accepted into the program may not participate in academic or extra-curricular activities at Honeoye Central School without written permission of the activity advisor and the high school principal.
 
Students must submit a copy of their college schedule to the High School Counselor at the beginning of each semester and an official transcript from the college at the end of each semester.
