12 Floyd Central 4-Year Plan  Courses already listed are required for ALL diplomas.  The purpose of the 4-year plan is to make sure you can fit in all of your required courses to earn your diploma of choice, as well as any electives you’re interested in taking. (You have so many options!)  Use your diploma track & college/career pathway as a guide to fill in the remaining courses.  Your plan can be adjusted from year to year.

13 Points to consider  You will earn 1 credit for each semester class that you pass.  Taking fewer study halls gives you the opportunity to earn more credits  Taking a study hall may take you out of the top 10% of the class.  If you fail any class(es) for the semester, you will earn fewer credits. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  Career goals and life goals  Interests, Aptitudes, Academic Abilities  Be ready for the challenge  Study habits  Homework  GPA, grades on transcript, and credits
