Why See Your School Counselor? Academic questions or problems College information Career questions Scheduling questions or problems Help with personal or social issues Outside Referrals
How To See Your Counselor or the Intervention Counselor Make an appointment. Mrs. Cordero will schedule appointments for you before school, during lunch or after school. (You can also drop-in at these times, but your counselor may not be available to see you …) Leave a note explaining your questions/concerns for your counselor with Mrs. Cordero if your counselor is unavailable. Parents can call Mrs. Cordero or email the counselor directly to make sure counselors are available and to schedule an appointment. If you have an emergency and your counselor is not available, tell Mrs. Cordero and she will find someone to assist you.
Important Chino High School Counseling Policies Chino High School does not honor requests for specific teachers or teacher changes. Counselors do not make period changes. Counselors may not change electives once the courses have begun. The only appropriate request for a schedule change is due to a level change.
Stay on Track… It is essential that students remain “on track” through high school. Failure to pass required classes not only puts the student at risk of not graduating on time, but it also limits the variety of electives available to that student. Summer school opportunities are extremely limited.
Graduation Requirements: Everything you do freshman year MATTERS, so pay close attention! Minimum 2.0 GPA Pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) English Language Arts (ELA) – includes essay Math – covers material through Algebra 1 If you have not passed both portions by the end of senior year (including summer school), you will not earn a high school diploma. 225 Credits Total: English4 years40 credits Math 3 years30 credits World History1 year10 credits U.S. History1 year10 credits U.S. Government½ year5 credits Economics½ year5 credits Biological Science1 year10 credits Physical Science1 year10 credits Physical Education2 years 20 credits Visual/Performing Arts or Foreign Language2 years20 credits Health½ year5 credits Electives60 credits
