Transcript of Welcome to the 6 Year Plan Presentation
6 subjects, 6 teachers, just like high school
Trying is important, mistakes are a part of learning
Offer opportunities to make decisions, and guidance on how to evaluate choices made.
Promote resiliency: the ability to recover readily from adversity
Have the courage to speak and the wisdom to listen
To receive a High School Diploma in California, students must:
Pass the High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE)
Complete 230 credits in specific areas
Complete 40 hours of Community Service
The Bank of High School Credits:
Doing the Math
In order to graduate, students must earn 230 credits total in their 4 years of high school
Each course taken and passed is worth 5 credits. Students take 6 classes per semester, and each school year has 2 semesters. This equals 60 credits per year.
In 4 years of high school, there are 240 credits possible.
High School Graduation Requirements
4 years of English 40 units
3 years of Math including Algebra 30 units
Physical and Life Science 20 units
World and US History, Govt/Econ 30 units
Fine Art OR World Language 10 units
PE 20 units
Health/Computer Skills 10 units
Electives 70 units
How can you tell if your child is prepared to meet these requirements?
Check his/her benchmark scores. SBAC scores can also give a general sense of where your child is at in their academic skills.
Grades in all classes especially English and Math.
Check his/her score on the Writing Assessment Test
D's and F's in High School
F's earn NO units/credits. The course would need to be re-taken in order to graduate, usually in summer school
D's will be awarded 5 units, BUT in math and world language a student cannot move to the next level with a grade less than a C.
Colleges do not accept D's as passing.
What is A-G?
A-G is another name for college preparatory courses. These classes meet the course requirements established by colleges and universities
Each letter represents a category of classes such as English, Math, Science, etc.

5 Reasons You Should Consider Community College
Average costs for the 2015-16 academic year
(TUITION and FEES ONLY)
Community College = $1,380 per year
California State University=$6,759 per year
University of California= $13,300 per year
California Independent Colleges=$28,987per year
Community college students escape the college admissions rat race
Open admission policies guarantee a place for you at a two-year college
Community college students have a better chance of getting into 4 year colleges than other transfer students.
First priority for admissions among transfer applicants often goes to community colleges over 4-year college and inter-campus transfers.
Many community colleges have articulation agreements (a.k.a. guaranteed admission programs) with 4 year colleges.
Second Chance to Attend 4 Year University of Choice
Is My Child a Candidate for Honors?
Community College students enjoy smoother transitions to college life and independence.
This is the case as these are usually smaller communities than universities and students can attend one close to home.
Going to community college is becoming just as popular as going straight to a 4 year college.
31 % of UC and 52% of CSU graduates started at a California community college
