Registration concerns : Meeting Oct 15, 2003 Present: Judy Buck, Pam Wassell, Ray Boyd, Dory Rogers, Ed Shaddix, Judy McGee, Kris Fitzgerald, Patrick Norton, Murla Crawford, Carl Rieke, Katie Healey, Marie Thomas (?), Stephen Dartt Patrick Norton began meeting at 2:35 –Asked for a recap of last meeting: Dr. Buck said students could not be refused a class (if needed due to failures) – However, they can be denied the right to take more than 1 class in any area; they can be denied the automatic re-enrollment of a course they need to repeat if classes are already full. School can allow only 1 LA, 1 Math, 1 SS class per year. Dr. Buck would like to have our schedule concentrate on classes that do NOT accommodate repeaters. She also put data on the whiteboard to indicate number of repeated courses for seniors : Alg I - 2 students failed 4 times; 2 students failed 3 times; 9 students failed 2 times Alg II – 2 students failed 3 times; 7 students failed 2 times Fr.CPLA – 3 students failed 2 times; 1 student failed 4 times Geometry – 7 students failed 2 times Tech I –3 students failed 2 times Tech II – 2 students failed 2 times US History CP – 3 students failed 2 times; 1 student failed 3 times; 1 student failed 4 times Chemistry – 2 students failed 2 times Jr CP LA - 2 students failed 2 times Soph CP LA – 3 students failed 2 times Policy – Suggested Guidelines – Limit the number of academic subjects in the school year: If a student cannot pass 4 out of 8 academics, we would be setting the student up for failure to give him MORE academics. Katie Healy mentioned the Hope Scholarship relies on ACADEMIC class average: Does this encourage students to take more or less academics than required? Policy for in-coming students: May take only 4 ‘core’ courses per year. We want to get away from the impression that transferred students to Shiloh can use the block schedule to catch up after failing several courses in other schools. Questions: What is a GPA (counselors have 4 different methods for finding GPA). What is a ‘core’ class? – (One needed for graduation?) Katie Healy said “Block scheduling should be used to ENRICH their education; not to allow for repeating classes!” Observations from Dr. Buck regarding data on whiteboard – Many of the students who failed 3 or 4 times changed their diploma from CP to Tech. Many of these students transferred INTO Shiloh after failing the class several times at other schools. Observations from Patrick Norton:
