HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM PLANNING

Selection of High School Courses
Students and parents are asked to carefully plan course selections each year. A student’s selection of
courses should have direction and purpose. Choosing classes with a definite goal in mind will better
prepare the student for the future. Course selections should reflect a student’s interests, abilities and
goals. In summary, course selections should:

                        Fulfill high school graduation requirements
                        Fulfill entrance requirements for schools of higher education
                        Prepare for the rigor of courses in higher education
                        Assist in choosing a future career and/or occupation
                        Have meaning, value and appeal to the student

Course Selection Changes
Planning a school course schedule for the following school year is a difficult task. When students complete
their course selection sheet, they are under obligation to complete all of their courses. Schedule changes
have a serious effect on the build of the master schedule, class sizes and teacher assignments. Schedule
changes need to be kept to a minimum.

Students will have a determined window of time in which they can make course request changes. Students
will be informed of the window. Once the window closes, requests to CHANGE course selections must
meet one of the following reasons:

                      Mistake was made in student’s schedule; two courses
                       scheduled at the same time, student did not request course.
                      Student has not met prerequisites for a particular course.
                      Teacher recommends a course change to correct an
                       inappropriate placement; student does not have the skills to
                       be “successful” in the course.
                      Freshman, sophomores and juniors are not carrying 8 credits.
                       Senior is not carrying the required 6 credits.
                      Counselor and/or principal recommendation to improve
                       overall master schedule.
Four Year University/College Course Requirements and
Recommendations
Requirements for admission into four year colleges or universities vary according to the specific school.
The University of Wisconsin System and Wisconsin Independent Colleges and Universities recommends
specific course selections to prepare the college bound student. The minimum course selections include
17 high school credits:

        English                  4 credits
        Math                     3 credits       Algebra, Geometry and Algebra 2
        Social Studies           3 credits
        Natural Science          3 credits       2 credits must be lab science

        Additional 4 credits may be chosen from English, mathematics, natural science, social
        science/history, foreign language, fine arts, computer science and other academic areas. Two
        years of a single foreign language is required for admission to UW-Madison and strongly
        recommended at other colleges/universities.

Students are encouraged to exceed the minimum number of college preparatory credits required
for admission. Strong academic preparation for college helps to ensure success. Students who choose a
rigorous high school curriculum including senior year course work are more successful in college. Colleges
with highly selective admissions standards recommend four credits or more in academic areas.

Wisconsin Technical Colleges
Wisconsin Technical Colleges provide education and training in over 500 different specific career areas.
Acceptance into technical colleges in Wisconsin requires a high school diploma, HSED or GED certificate.
Technical colleges do not require the same types of courses required for admission into four year colleges.
If planning to attend a technical college program of study, it is recommended to take as many high school
courses as possible that are related to the student’s career choice.

Laude Program
A student can receive laude recognition by multiplying the number of advanced, transcripted or advanced
placement courses by their individual cumulative grade point average. Students must have a minimum
cumulative grade point average of 3.4 to qualify for the program. The three levels of designation are cum
laude, magna cum laude and summa cum laude. The following pages contain detailed information on Kiel
High School’s laude program.

                             CALCULATION INFORMATION

Students with a 3.4 GPA or better (no rounding) are eligible for Summa Cum Laude, Magna
Cum Laude, or Cum Laude recognition. The student’s recognition level will be determined by
multiplying the GPA at the end of their senior year, times the number of advanced classes taken
throughout their four years at Kiel High School. Only KHS’s approved list of advanced level
courses (in addition to College/Technical College Youth Options and “advanced standing”
courses) will be considered advanced courses for the purpose of the Laude recognition process.

Examples:     3.5 GPA X 12 Adv. Courses = 42 (Cum Laude)
              3.7 GPA X 20 Adv. Courses = 74 (Magna Cum Laude)
              3.6 GPA X 25 Adv. Courses = 90 (Summa Cum Laude)
