7 High School credits in Middle school  High School Offerings in middle school are a great way for gifted and high achieving students to begin their course work in preparation for advanced course work in high school.  Advanced Placement courses for college credit  Career Pathways  Foreign language (Spanish, French, Latin and American Sign Language)  Band, drama, JROTC, or chorus

8 High School credits in Middle school  High school credit is issued by Cherokee High School so high school policies will be recognized:  Attendance Policy-the State of Georgia has a “seat time” requirement that requires 150 hours of seat time per year per subject. Students in high school do not receive credit if they are absent (excused or unexcused) from the class period more than 6 days per semester. An attendance waiver committee can be convened in special circumstances for excused absences.

9 High School credits in Middle school  Once credit has been issued, the credit and grade will remain on the transcript.  Student and parent elects to remain in the class after the “drop deadline”  Student completes the course and takes the required SLO (Spanish) or EOCT (Honors/Accelerated Algebra, Physical Science)

10 High School credits in Middle school  Current research has shown that the most successful College freshmen are students who have taken a rigorous course load during their SENIOR year of high school.

18 Advantages of HS Credit during MS  Opportunities for advanced course work in high school.  Rigorous program of study  Preparation for the rigors of high school  Challenge  Like-minded peer group who are serious about their education.

19 Advantages of HS Credit during MS  Academic rigor too much NOW. If students leave the accelerated track, they could have the potential of not returning when if they had waited another year would be cognitively ready for the challenge.

20 The low down…  Have high but reasonable expectations  If this is not the time for the acceleration of curriculum, it could be the right time soon.  Encourage your students to have other interest including sports, clubs, church, outside activities, hobbies.
