Technology Education Requirement for Graduation To satisfy MSDE high school graduation requirements, students are required to take a state-approved technology education course.

Criteria for Enrollment in Honors, Advanced Placement, and Advanced-level Courses Principals ensure that all students who have the capability, motivation, or potential to accept the challenge of honors, advanced-level and/or AP courses will be accorded an opportunity to do so. Each semester the principal will convene his or her school s Honors/AP Review Committee to review the participation of students in honors, advanced-level, and AP courses to ensure consistent implementation of the MCPS Gifted and Talented Education Policy (IOA), and the accompanying regulation (IOA-RA), The Honors/AP Review Committee ensures that each school provides responsible open enrollment in honors, advancedlevel, and AP courses for every student who is capable of or motivated to pursue a rigorous program and higher-level course work. The committee documents the strengths that each student brings to honors, advanced-level, and AP work and recommends a plan for outreach, nurturing, and support of potential candidates. A profile of student strengths can be determined by conducting a thorough review of the following multiple criteria: Mastery of course prerequisites (grades of A, B, or C) Parent/guardian recommendations Standardized test scores, as appropriate Willingness to complete challenging assignments Student interest or motivation Work samples and portfolios Teacher/counselor recommendations Schools will evaluate multiple criteria for each student as no single criterion is to be used to exclude a student from pursuing honors, advanced-level, and AP course work. Prior to the start of each semester, school counselors notify all candidates for honors, advanced-level, and AP courses regarding their enrollment. Review Process for Enrollment in Honors, Advanced Placement, and Advanced-Level Courses Students who are not recommended for enrollment, but who still wish to be considered for honors, advancedlevel, or AP course placement should appeal in writing to the principal for a special review within 0 school days of notification.

The student s withdrawal request must be approved by parents/guardians in writing, reviewed by the counselor, and discussed with the student to ensure that there is understanding that withdrawing from the course may result in a possible delay in meeting graduation requirements. The counselor s recommendation is forwarded to the principal for approval. If a student withdraws from a course before the end of the 5 th permanent record card or report card. school day, no notation is made on the student s 6

Alternative Provisions for Earning Credit In addition to earning credits during the regular school day and year, credits may be earned through summer school, extended-day learning opportunities, work experience programs, online courses, and college courses. Permission from the principal or designee is required in advance in all cases involving alternative provisions for earning credit. Specific provisions govern the use of each of these programs. It is critical that students and parents consider these programs carefully and consult school counselors in advance to obtain full information about any alternative means of earning credit and its advisability.

Parents and school personnel are expected to do everything possible to ensure each student s regular attendance. Students should attend all scheduled classes and approved educational activities and are responsible for completing all assigned work on time. Students should be enrolled in a full-day program or spend a comparable period of time in an alternative program or activity approved by the student s parent/guardian and principal.

Course-specific procedures for grading are defined, used consistently, and explained clearly to students and parents in writing at the beginning of a semester or school year. A final evaluation activity is required at the conclusion of all courses. Semester examinations in specified courses are computed as 5% of the final grade for the semester and reported separately on the report card. Reporting Student Progress Teachers will provide students and parents with information about achievement throughout the marking period. This feedback may take several forms, including the following: Report cards Interims/progress reports Online grade reports (Edline) Parent conferences Informal methods of communication Teacher feedback Credit/No Credit Grading Option The Credit/No Credit grading option may be used only in courses not specifically required for graduation by MSDE or MCPS. Credit/No Credit cannot be applied to a Certificate of Merit course. 7

A Marking Period Average (MPA), used in determining academic eligibility, is shown on student report cards. The MPA is not cumulative and is not used to establish the GPA or WGPA.

36 THOMAS EDISON HIGH SCHOOL OF TECHNOLOGY Program Offerings *** Students may elect to take the first year of a two-year program if they are not using the course as a program completer. All TEHST programs offer.5 credits per semester. Some courses have prerequisites. Most courses are career development completer programs, but not all (i.e. our Interior Design course is currently an elective). As a general rule, we do not enroll Grade 9 students. Grade and students have program placement priority, except Cosmetology. Students must begin the Cosmetology course as a 0 th grader. In most other programs, Grade 0 students are typically considered if space is available in the course. Advanced Technology courses are marked with a *. Biotechnology is an advanced level course with science credit and is offered in the PM only. Medical Careers is offered in the PM only. Courses articulated with Montgomery College for college credit are in italic type.
