TO REVIEW THE CLASSES THAT WERE ASSIGNED, STUDENTS SHOULD VISIT THE PARENT OR STUDENT PORTAL BEFORE STARTING ASSIGNMENTS. PLEASE NOTE, THE ASSIGNED CLASSES LISTED ON THE PORTAL ARE NOT A FINALIZED STUDENT SCHEDULE AND ARE NOT IN A CORRECT ORDER. THE LIST IS PROVIDED FOR THE PURPOSE OF VERIFYING WHAT COURSES WERE SCHEDULED. A FINALIZED STUDENT SCHEDULE WILL BE SHARED WITH ALL STUDENTS IN AUGUST. THE AUGUST LISTING WILL INCLUDE THE CORRECT ORDER OF COURSES (BELL SCHEDULE) AND THE TEACHER SUPERVISING EACH COURSE. AN ALERT WILL BE SENT WHEN THE FINAL STUDENT SCHEDULES ARE POSTED.
Please find the department then course that you are taking in the fall of 2020 and open the assignment. Unless otherwise noted, the assignment is due the first full day of school. Students in POR academic classes should work on the CP level summer assignments. Please refer to each specific content page and complete the assignment for the class you are assigned. You will need to use your school issued email address to access the assignments below. Expectations are as followed:
English: all students within a specific course are expected to read the same piece of work. When students return in September, they will be assessed differently based on the level course they plan to take (CP, CPA, Honors, or AP).
Math & Science: Each course level has a different amount of work. In general, all math and science assignments are broken into three sections. Section 1 is required for students taking the CP level. Sections 1 and 2 are required for the CPA level. Sections 1, 2, and 3 are required for the Honors level. By providing all three levels in the document, students should have a better understanding if the level chosen is the best level based on their background understanding and skills. Students are encouraged to attempt the level beyond the level they have chosen to see if they would like to challenge themselves in a different level class for next year. On the same hand, if the current level appears too challenging, in September they will be able to select a different level more appropriate for their skills. In that scenario, student should only complete the requirement for the level they plan to take.
History: Only students taking honors and AP history courses have assignments. THERE ARE NO ASSIGNMENTS FOR CP OR CPA COURSES.
Electives: elective courses are difficult to assess over the summer for a variety of reasons. The same also holds true for Spanish. Therefore, not many elective assignments are offered. There are a few in Math and Science (Physics, Pre-Calculus, Forensics, etc.). Although these assignments are not a requirement, they are strongly recommended. Students taking these courses are required to have prerequisite skills within the discipline. Also, these courses will be assessing students early on so it is in the best interest of the student to receive additional practice.
Grading/Assessment: Each assignment will count as a 25 pt completion grade and there will also be a 50 pt assessment linked to each assignment which will be given in September. Students will have an opportunity to review each assignment with their teacher prior to the assessment. Additionally, it is strongly recommended that a student that struggled should contact their teacher prior to the assessment to review information privately. Remember, if you plan to change a course level in September, it is imperative to complete the assignment linked to that course. Students will be responsible for assignments once school starts. A perfect example is: Student A is currently scheduled for CPA English 2 but has changed their mind and wants to take Honors English 2 in September. The student should complete the honors level assignment. That way when the schedule is changed in September, the student is not behind the rest of the class.
