HIGH SCHOOL COURSES FOR COLLEGE
             CREDIT/ARTICULATED COURSES
Tigard High School juniors and seniors may receive college credits for some of their high school courses through “articulated
credit” programs. “Articulated” courses are high school courses which match content and outcomes to particular college courses.
Although taught in the high school, the course materials, course content and instructional quality are consistent with or articulated
with courses offered by Portland Community College (PCC), Clackamas Community College (CCC) Oregon Institute of
Technology (OIT), Portland State University (PSU), and Western Oregon University (WOU).
Upon graduation from high school, participating students will already have a “jump start” on post-secondary education at a cost
far below regular tuition prices, saving both time and money. Students may earn college credit in the following courses:

Savings to students and their parents are considerable and some students earn a term’s worth of credit or more. The completed
high school courses are recorded on the high school transcript. Proof of the college credit will not be reflected on the high
school transcript, but record of college credits earned may be obtained by contacting the registrar’s office at the individual
post-secondary institution.

CURSOS DE ESCUELA PREPARATORIA PARA CRÉDITO
         UNIVERSITARIO/CURSOS ARTICULADOS
Tigard High School juniors y seniors pueden recibir créditos universitarios por algunos de sus cursos de escuela preparatoria
articulada a través de programas de créditos. Los cursos "articulado" son cursos de escuela preparatoria que coincidan con el
contenido y los resultados a cursos determinados en la universidad. Aunque enseñados en la escuela preparatoria, los materiales
del curso, el contenido del curso y la calidad de la enseñanza son coherentes con o articulado con cursos ofrecidos por Portland
Community College (PCC), Clackamas Community College (CCC), Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT) y la Universidad
Estatal de Portland (PSU), y la Universidad de Western Oregon (WOU).
Al graduarse de la escuela preparatoria, los estudiantes participantes ya tienen un "jump start" en la educación post-secundaria a
un costo muy por debajo de los precios de matrícula ordinaria, ahorrando tiempo y dinero. Los estudiantes pueden recibir crédito
universitario en los siguientes cursos:

Ahorros para los estudiantes y sus padres son considerables y algunos estudiantes ganan un valor de un crédito o más de un
término. Cursos están grabadas en la transcripción de la escuela preparatoria. Prueba del crédito universitario no se verá
reflejado en la transcripción de la escuela preparatoria, pero el registro de créditos universitarios obtenidos pueden obtenerse
poniéndose en contacto con la oficina del secretario en cada institución post-preparatoria.

                     2019-2020                               TIGARD HIGH SCHOOL                                         9
GRADING SYSTEM
GRADING PERIODS
Tigard High School operates under a two semester system, with most core classes meeting all year long, electives meeting for a
semester and a limited number of classes meeting everyday on the quarter system. Grades are entered on student transcripts at the
end of each semester. Our courses that meet everyday will receive a grade at the conclusion of each quarter within the semester.

GRADING OPTIONS
All courses are graded A – F unless otherwise stated. Juniors and seniors may choose to take certain elective classes pass/fail;
arrangements must be made with the counselor and teacher by the end of the 6th day of the grading period. Special requirements
and restrictions apply. Students need to check with their counselor.

ADD/ DROP POLICY
                                     Forecasted classes cannot be changed.
Course offerings and staffing decisions are based upon student forecasting. Choose courses carefully with the intent to commit to
your schedule for the entire year. IB, performing arts, and other yearlong courses are full year commitments. Students and
guardians will be asked to sign student forecasting sheets to confirm their commitment to selected courses for the entire year.
Students may not change their schedule unless one of the following three problems exist: 1) The student has been assigned the
wrong level of a course, 2) The student has an incomplete schedule or unscheduled block, 3) The student is missing a core class.

All schedule change requests that do not meet the criteria must be approved by an administrator and communicated to the
student’s parent or guardian prior to the change. Approved schedule changes must be made within the first 6 days of the
semester. Classes dropped after the 6th day of the semester will be recorded on a student’s transcript as a “WF”. See your
counselor for more details.

INCOMPLETE GRADES
Teachers may initiate an Incomplete Contract with a student for extenuating circumstances, i.e. prolonged illness, injury or family
emergency. Incomplete contracts are not to be used to provide students additional time to improve grades or to complete missing
homework, tests and quizzes due to poor attendance or lack of effort prior to the grading period. Students have until the end of
the 2nd week following the grading period to complete the work required under an Incomplete Contract. The teacher or student
may appeal this time limit by contacting the Associate Principal of Curriculum. There will be an “I” on the student’s transcript
until the contractual time period has expired or the work is completed. If the incomplete contract time expires and the student has
not made up the work, the “I” will be changed to the letter grade designated by the teacher on the contract. If no letter grade is
listed on the contract, the “I” will be changed to an “F”.

CREDIT RECOVERY
Students who have failed one or more of the core classes listed below may have an opportunity to recover the credit through an
online program called GradPoint. These opportunities are available during the school day, primarily for juniors and seniors.
Please note that space is limited and may not be available to all students. Credits available through GradPoint are:
                English 9, 10, 11, 12                 ● Geometry                                  ● Physics

listing of accredited alternatives. Prior to enrolling in a recovery course outside of Tigard High School, students must consult
with their counselor.

EL SISTEMA DE CALIFICACIÓN
PERÍODOS DE CALIFICIONES
La Escuela Preparatoria Tigard opera bajo una sistema de dos semestres, con la mayoría de los cursos básicos
reuniéndose durante todo el año escolar, clases electivas se reúnen por un semestre y un número limitado de cursos se
reúnen todos los días en el sistema de bimestres. Las calificaciones se ingresan en las transcripciones del estudiante al
final de cada semestre. Nuestros cursos que se reúnen todos los días recibirán una calificación al final de cada
bimestre dentro del semestre.
OPCIONES DE CALIFICACIÓN
Todos los cursos están graduados A - F, a menos que se indique lo contrario. Juniors y Seniors podrán optar por tomar
ciertas clases electivas pase/no pase; arreglos deben hacerse con la consejera y maestro al final del sexto día del
período de calificación. Requisitos especiales restricciones se aplican. Los estudiantes deben consultar con su
consejera.
PÓLIZA DE AGREGAR OR DAR DE BAJA
                               Clases proyectadas no pueden ser cambiados.
Los estudiantes no pueden cambiar su horario a menos que uno de los siguientes tres problemas existe: 1) El
estudiante ha sido asignado el nivel incorrecto de un curso, 2) El estudiante tiene un horario de bloque incompleto o
no programado, 3) Al alumno le falta una clase principal.
Todas las solicitudes de cambio de horario que no cumplen los criterios deben ser aprobadas por un administrador y
comunicada con los padres o guardians del estudiante antes del cambio. Cambios aprobados de programación deben
ser hechos dentro de los primeros 6 días del semestre. Cursos dados de baja después del sexto día del semestre serán
registrados en la transcripción del estudiante como “WF”. Vea a su consejero por mas detalles.
CALIFCACIONES INCOMPLETAS
Los maestros pueden iniciar un contrato incompleto con un estudiante por circunstancias atenuantes, es decir,
enfermedades prolongada, lesión o emergencia familiar. Los contratos incompletos no se deben utilizar para
proporcionar a los estudiantes tiempo adicional para mejorar las calificaciones o para completar las tareas, exámenes y
cuestionarios faltantes debido a la falta de asistencia o falta de esfuerzo antes del período de calificaciones. Los
estudiantes tienen hasta el final de la segunda semana después del período de calificaciones para completar el trabajo
requerido de un contrato incompleto. El profesor o el estudiante puede solicitar este límite de tiempo poniéndose en
contacto con el Director Asociado del Plan de Estudios. Habrá una “I” en el expediente académico del estudiante
hasta que el período de tiempo contractual ha caducado o se termine el trabajo. Si el tiempo del contrato incompleto
se expira y el estudiante no ha terminado el trabajo, el “I” se ajustarán a la calificación de la letra designada por el
maestro en el contrato. Si no se encuentra un grado de letra en el contrato, el “I” se cambiará a una “F”.
LA RECUPERACIÓN DEL CRÉDITO
Los estudiantes que han fallado una o más de las clases principales que se enumeran a continuación pueden tener una
oportunidad de recuperar el crédito a través de un programa llamado GradPoint online. Estas oportunidades están
disponibles durante el día escolar, principalmente para juniors y seniors. Por favor tenga en cuenta que el espacio es
limitado y puede no estar disponible para todos los estudiantes. Los créditos disponibles a través de GradPoint son:

                                       ACADEMIC HONESTY

              2019-2020                               TIGARD HIGH SCHOOL                                   11
It is expected that students do their own work. In cases where students are permitted to work together on an
assignment, it is still expected that the final product turned in by each student is unique and reflects their own ideas.
Likewise, if a student asks for help on an assignment from another person, the final product must still reflect their own
ideas and efforts.
It is further expected that students give credit to the original author whenever they use their ideas by citing the source
in an approved format (such as MLA format). This applies even when the ideas are paraphrased.

Types of Academic Dishonesty
Plagiarism - the representation of the ideas or work of another person as the student’s own (failing to accurately cite
sources, correctly paraphrase, or attribute quotes)
Collusion - enabling or facilitating malpractice of another student, by allowing one’s work to be copied or turned in
by that student
Duplication of Work - turning in the same (or substantially the same) work for different classes or assignments
without prior permission
Cheating - any activity that gives a student an unfair advantage over other students on an assignment or assessment

Examples
Academic Dishonesty may include, but is not limited to:
 ● Unauthorized use of notes on a test or quiz
 ● Copying another student’s work or answers
 ● Looking at or attempting to access test questions or answers keys before a test or quiz
 ● Asking other students who have already taken a test for information about that test, OR providing such
     information to other students
 ● Unauthorized use of electronic devices during tests
 ● Falsifying lab data
 ● Fabricating references or citations
 ● Misrepresenting hours or details of CAS activities
 ● Lying for the purpose of gaining extra time or special consideration on tests or assignments
 ● Working together on an assignment that is intended to be completed independently

Consequences for Violations
If a student is determined to have committed academic dishonesty, some or all of the following may occur:
   ● The student may receive a reduced grade on the assignment/assessment, up to and including a zero or no credit.
   ● The student may be required to redo the assignment or assessment for partial credit.
   ● The teacher will assign an administrative referral.
   ● The student’s parents may be notified and/or asked to meet with the teacher and/or administrators.
   ● In cases of collusion, all students involved will be penalized.

HONESTIDAD ACADÉMICA
Se espera que los estudiantes hagan su propio trabajo. En los casos en que a los estudiantes se les permita trabajar
juntos en una tarea, se espera que el producto final que se ha entregado por cada alumno sea único y refleje sus
propias ideas. Del mismo modo, si un estudiante pide ayuda en una tarea de otra persona, el producto final debe aún
reflejar sus propias ideas y esfuerzos.

Se espera, además, que los estudiantes den crédito al autor original cada vez que utilicen sus ideas citando la fuente en

POST-HIGH SCHOOL GUIDANCE
APPLYING TO COLLEGE

The college application process can be a daunting experience. The key to success is to plan ahead and be organized.
Start researching your options early, whether it will be to attend a private university, a public college, or a community
college. See your counselor for assistance. Here are some key points to remember:
 ●   Take challenging courses in high school so you are prepared for college.
 ●   Take the ACT during your junior year or plan to take the SAT at the end of your junior year and again in the fall
     of your senior year, if necessary.
 ●   Start gathering brochures from schools or view their web pages during your junior year and begin to narrow
     down your choices. Visit the Career Center at Tigard High School to explore post-secondary options.
 ●   Log on to Naviance to research college and career options in depth.
 ●   Schedule campus visitations to universities during the spring of your junior year and the fall of your senior year.
 ●   Check and re-check college admissions deadlines.
 ●   Allow counselors and teachers three school weeks notice to write letters of recommendation or to fill out
     recommendation forms.
 ●   Juniors will be assigned a community mentor to assist them with post-secondary planning.

       reducir sus opciones. Visite el Centro de Carerras en la preparatoria para explorar opciones de post-preparatoria.
   ●   Inicien su sesión de Naviance para la investigar las opciones de carreras profundamente.
   ●   Programen visitas a las universidades durante la primavera de su penúltimo año y al iniciar su último año de
       preparatoria.

TIGARD HIGH SCHOOL TAG PROGRAM
Tigard High School has a comprehensive program option and course offerings for Talented and Gifted (TAG)
students. The needs of TAG students are met by enrollment in appropriate courses and by differentiation of
curriculum and instructional strategies. To accommodate TAG students in regular English, mathematics, science,
social studies, and foreign language courses, teachers adapt the curriculum and instruction according to Tigard-
Tualatin School District guidelines.
The development of a four-year course study and annual course selections are critical activities for developing
individual student programs. During these activities, parents and students should consider all options available for
program planning. If students or parents have additional questions, they should contact their child’s counselor,
teacher, or associate principal of curriculum.

                                          Tigard-Tualatin School District
                                             TAG Mission Statement
        The mission of the TAG program is to facilitate appropriate education for talented and gifted students.

                                               District Tag Philosophy

The Tigard-Tualatin School District is committed to an educational program that recognizes the unique value, needs
and talents of TAG students. Central to this commitment is instruction that is designed to meet the needs of
academically talented and intellectually gifted students. Programming for TAG students embraces the following
precepts:
     ● Gifted students are individuals with unique patterns of abilities and interests.
     ● Gifted students benefit from spending time with peers with similar abilities and interests.
     ● Gifted students must be provided instruction in core curriculum at their level and rate of learning.
     ● Gifted students may need counseling and guidance to address their academic and social needs.

                                            District Goals: TAG Students

     1. Identify academically talented and intellectually gifted students.
     2. Support of classroom teachers so they can provide TAG students with differentiated learning opportunities that
         are designed to meet their rate and level of learning.
     3. Provide enriched opportunities for TAG students.
     4. Assist teachers to provide students with instruction that fosters inquiry, creativity, critical thinking, and
         autonomous learning.
     5. Help qualified students understand themselves as learners.

INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE (IB) PROGRAM
What is IB?
IB is an advanced program of study which emphasizes academic rigor, depth of knowledge, critical thinking,
international mindedness, and educating the whole person. Originally designed in 1967 as a curriculum for
international schools, IB has evolved into one of the most prestigious high school programs in the world, and has
expanded to more than 2,500 schools in 130 countries. The IB Program is designed to prepare students for success in
college and in a rapidly globalizing world. Colleges and universities worldwide recognize the IB diploma as the
pinnacle of academic achievement for high school students.

IB Mission Statement
IB aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who seek to create a better world through
intercultural understanding and respect. It “encourages students here and around the world to become active,
compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.”

Diploma or Certificate?
The IB diploma is the highest diploma offered at Tigard High School. Students have the choice of completing the full
IB program and earning an IB Diploma, or of taking individual IB classes and earning course certificates. Full
diploma students receive many benefits, including preferential admission to many colleges and universities, up to a
full year of college credit, and special IB scholarships.
Many colleges also award credit for individual course certificates, depending on the level (HL or SL) and the
student’s exam scores. Note: College credit for IB diplomas and certificates varies widely. To find out what benefits
are available to IB students at a specific college, go to the college’s website or contact their admissions office.

IB Diploma Requirements
To earn an IB Diploma, a student must complete all of the following:
1. IB Classes. Successfully complete a minimum of nine IB classes in six required subjects: English, foreign
language, history, science, math, and elective. (Most students will need to take ten or more IB classes depending on
which exams they plan to take. See the subject sections of this curriculum guide for full course options, sequences,
and prerequisites.)
2. TOK. Successfully complete the class “Theory of Knowledge” and the required presentation and essay.
3. CAS. Perform at least 50 hours each of “Creativity, Action, and Service” (150 hours total over two years).
Diploma candidates will meet with the CAS coordinator at the start of junior year to go over the CAS requirements.
4. Extended Essay. Successfully complete a 4000 word Extended Essay (research paper) in the subject of their
choice. Students will meet with their EE advisor during the spring of the junior year to choose a topic and receive
detailed instructions.
5. IB Exams. Pass six IB exams, including at least three HL exams, with scores of 4 or better. (In some cases it is
possible to get a 3 on an exam and still earn a diploma, but to be safe students should aim for 4 or higher.)

IB Exams
IB exams are held during the school day over a three week period each May. Each subject exam consists of multiple
parts, usually two parts for SL and three parts for HL, varying in length from 1 hour to 2.5 hours. Exams are scored
on a scale of 1-7. Students may take up to two SL exams during their junior year, and up to six exams their senior
year. Exam registration takes place each October.

Entering the IB Program
Sophomores planning to earn an IB Diploma will meet with the IB Coordinator during forecasting to fill out a two
year course plan. All students are permitted to enroll in IB courses as long as they meet the course prerequisites. All
IB coursework is completed during the junior and senior years (exceptions considered on a case-by-case basis).
If you have questions about the IB Program, please contact the IB Coordinator, Mike Savage at 503-431-5379, via
email at msavage@ttsd.k12.or.us, or stop by his classroom (213) before or after school.
HL vs. SL

              2019-2020                               TIGARD HIGH SCHOOL                               24
Higher Level (HL) courses are two years in length and prepare students for the HL exam. Standard Level (SL)
courses may be one or two years in length and prepare students for the SL exam. Colleges are more likely to award
credit for HL exams, usually for scores of 5 or above (see individual college websites for details).
The following courses are offered as SL Only: Social and Cultural Anthropology, Physics, Japanese B, Math Studies
All others may be taken either HL or SL. It is highly recommended that students pursuing an IB Diploma take English
and History HL.

Students participate in collaborative study groups or tutorials led by tutors who use skillful
questioning to bring students to a higher level of understanding.

The AVID approach to teaching and learning is designed to close and narrow three proficiency
gaps that impact students and their learning:
   ● Achievement
   ● Opportunity
   ● Expectations

Most students in AVID are first generation college bound students. Historically underrepresented
students. Low income students or students with special circumstances. Most importantly AVID
students want to work with a team of people to get to college and reach their goals.

Appoximately 95% of AVID THS high school graduates enroll in college with more than 85% at
THS accepted to a four-year college. AVID graduates persist in college.

Our elective courses are designed to:
   ● Teach organization, study skills, and academic participation
   ● Encourage community service and extracurricular activities
   ● Prepare and support student in IB classes
   ● Explore colleges and college finances
   ● Prepare for the ACT
