For the Core 40 with Technical Honors diploma, students must: Complete all requirements for Core 40. Earn 6 credits in the college and career preparation courses in a state- approved College & Career Pathway and one of the following: Pathway designated industry-based certification or credential, or or Pathway dual credits from the lists of priority courses resulting in 6 transcripted college credits Complete one of the following, - Any one of the 5 options for the Core 40 with Academic Honors - Earn the following scores or higher on WorkKeys; Reading for Information – Level 6, Applied Mathematics – Level 6, and Locating Information-Level 5. - Earn the following minimum score(s) on Accuplacer: Writing 80, Reading 90, Math 75. - Earn the following minimum score(s) on Compass; Algebra 66, Writing 70, Reading 80.
General Diploma Beginning with students who enter high school in 2007- 2008, completion of Core 40 becomes a graduation requirement. A general diploma is only available to students whose parents feel students are unable to complete the Core 40 curriculum. To graduate with less than Core 40, a formal Opt-out process must be completed. Beginning in fall 2011, Core 40 will be an admissions requirement to attend a public four-year university in Indiana (Core 40 is a minimum requirement – colleges may have additional admissions requirements).
General Diploma English8 credits Eng 9, 10, 11 and a senior English course Mathematics4 credits Must include 2 credits in Algebra I Social Studies6 credits World History (full year) US History (full year) Government & Econ (1 semester each) Science6 credits Biology I and two more science courses Health1 credit 1 semester PE2 credits 2 semesters Career Academic Sequence 6 credits Electives selected to take advantage of career exploration Local Grad.

Core 40 Opt-Out Triggers A parent may request that a student be exempted from the Core 40 curriculum and be required to complete the general diploma to graduate, or The student does not pass at least three (3) courses required under the Core 40 curriculum, or The student receives a score on the graduation examination that is in the twenty-fifth percentile or lower when taking the graduation exam for the first time. ***If the decision is made to opt-out of Core 40, the student is required to complete the course/credit requirements for a general diploma and the career/academic sequence the student will pursue is determined.
Core 40 Opt-Out Process The student, the student’s parent/guardian, and the student’s counselor meet to discuss the student’s progress. The student’s career/course plan is reviewed. The student’s parent/guardian determines whether the student will achieve greater educational benefits by completing the general curriculum or the Core 40 curriculum. Opt-Out form signed by parent and student

Second Biomedical Course HUMAN BODY SYSTEMS (PROJECT LEAD THE WAY): Students examine the interactions of body systems as they explore identity, communication, power, movement, protection, and homeostasis. Students design experiments, investigate the structures and functions of the human body, and use data acquisition software to monitor body functions such as muscle movement, reflex and voluntary action, and respiration. Exploring science in action, students build organs and tissues on a skeletal manikin, work through interesting real world cases and often play the role of biomedical professionals to solve medical mysteries.
