2012-2013 School Year Grade 11 Tuesday, February 21, 2012
Graduation Requirements OCS requires passing 25 Carnegie Units of Coursework to receive The Alabama High School Diploma. Passing all standard coursework is required for diploma type. Passing 5 out of 5 sections of the Alabama High School Graduation Exam.
New Graduation Guidelines Beginning with the ninth grade class of the 2012-2013 school year, ALL students will have to complete in math either Algebra II or Algebra II with Trigonometry. We are expecting some changes to the Math Path. As a result, a placement test will be used to place the students in the appropriate math path. Beginning with the ninth grade class of the 2009-2010 school year, ALL students will have as their default diploma option the Advanced Endorsement to the Alabama High School Diploma. Should a student and his/her parent or guardian determine that the Advance Endorsement is not appropriate for the student’s educational needs, the parent or guardian may remove the student from the Advanced Endorsement by meeting with the student’s counselor and completing the Endorsement Change Request Form. This change in endorsement may occur prior to the student entering ninth grade or at logical points throughout the student’s high school experience. Included in the newly adopted requirements of the Advanced Endorsement to the Alabama High School Diploma is the requirement that all students will have an Online Experience (teacher led or blended instruction).

Students will be scheduled core subjects based on math path.
Honors English The counselor will collect data and enter information on an approved rubric based on certain standardized assessments (examples: EXPLORE and PLAN) along with current English grades. The rubric will be used to see which students meet the criteria. Parents will be notified by letter about their child’s eligibility for Honors English. Parents will need to verify, sign, and return the letter indicating if student will be accepting or declining the course. Once the letter is received in the counselor’s office, an adjustment will be made to the student’s schedule for those who accept. During the month of May, the student will receive the Honor’s English Summer Reading requirements.
Students will select courses from the list of electives (example list below) sometime during the spring through the INOW Portal.
INOW Home Portal At this point, you will have a chance to check out your requests at home through the INOW Home Portal. If your parent(s) have not enrolled to receive the INOW Home Portal, they will need to see Mrs. Teal in the high school office.
