• What are the options for taking Drivers Education and Health to free up a period in 10th grade?

    Posted by:

    Here are some scenarios:

    1. Take Drivers Education in the summer.  The DHCA sessions are listed in the Announcements on the website.
      Then, take Health at PHS during the school year and back it up with 1/2 credit of an online course through ACCESS.

    2. Take Drivers Education in the summer through DHCA or another school.  Take Health in Summer School through ACCESS, which meets the 1/2 online credit requirement.  The last couple of years, Health has been offered on ACCESS during summer school at PHS, which basically runs four weeks in June (M-Th).  Health can be taken at another accredited school but the platform they use may not qualify as an "online class."  For ACCESS summer school classes, the student can do any work at home, except tests, quizzes, and exams.  They must do those at school during summer school hours with the facilitator present.  We encourage those students to come to school and work during summer school hours because they typically are more productive  and stay on pace better completing the work in an academic, structured setting rather than at home where there are MANY distractions during the summer.
     
    Please note that students are only allowed to take Health on ACCESS during the summer.  During the school year, it must be taken in the classroom to comply with our basic rule about having to take a class in the classroom if it is offered.

  • When a class has numbers (I, II, III, IV), how do I know which one to choose?

    Posted by:

    The number indicates what year it is for the student to take that course NOT what year of high school it is for the student.  For example, a 10th grade student taking JROTC for the first time would choose JROTC I because it is the student's first time to take the course.
