9How 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 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.
10Important 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.
11Stay 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.

Minimum 2.0 GPAPass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE)English Language Arts (ELA) – includes essayMath – covers material through Algebra 1If 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:English 4 years 40 creditsMath 3 years 30 creditsWorld History 1 year 10 creditsU.S. History 1 year 10 creditsU.S. Government ½ year 5 creditsEconomics ½ year 5 creditsBiological Science 1 year 10 creditsPhysical Science 1 year 10 creditsPhysical Education 2 years 20 creditsVisual/Performing Artsor Foreign Language 2 years 20 creditsHealth ½ year 5 creditsElectives credits
