Introduction and Overview This document exists to help you gain information regarding the course offerings at A3. It contains essential information about the description, sequence, and grade level of each course at A3. It is intended to help guide potential families/students, as well as current families/students with their plans and course selections. A3 is different from what you might be accustomed to in school. We focus on knowledge, skills, and personal responsibility. A3 strives to produce students who can engage the world and effect change. To achieve these goals, we craft challenging, real world projects designed to develop and sharpen your skills. Further, we design our program to make you responsible for your own success. As an A3 student, you will be taught by licensed and certified academic instructors who work along with or also are licensed and certified STEM and arts teachers. We try to tailor our teaching efforts to meet your specific needs. A3 teachers meet often to discuss student progress. Working together, we improve the quality of your education. At the center of the A3 program is a series of projects that students work on in teams in a class called Humaniqueries. Humaniqueries is a project-based block of classes that integrates the sciences, social studies, and language arts. The course is required for all A3 students, each semester of all four years. Projects in Humaniqueries and other classes are designed to teach you the skills that will serve you after your high school days are over. You will learn how to gather and sort information, to think critically, to speak publicly, to organize people and events, to write effectively, to communicate visually and dramatically. You will learn to take risks, to test new ideas, to overcome your fears. You will never have worked harder in your school life - and you will have fun doing it. Another important aspect of A3 is your development as an active participant in your own education. You will have new responsibilities that previous teachers may have handled for you. You will have to negotiate your work schedule, choose how to divide up tasks in a project, and decide when to meet with other students. Your A3 teachers will be there to give you successful strategies and structures for all these decisions and responsibilities.

In the spring of each year, if you are a current 9th-11th grade student, you will forecast for your classes for the upcoming school year with the assistance of your Writing Group/Advisory teacher, your parent(s)/guardian(s), and/or the school’s guidance counselor. If you are an incoming 9th grader, you and your parent(s)/guardian(s) are invited to attend an event which is designed to register and forecast for the fall classes. You, along with all others students at A3, take core Humanities, Math, and Science courses. As a 9 th or 10th grader, you are automatically enrolled in these courses designed for the “ones;” as an 11th or 12th grader, you are enrolled in courses designed for the “twos.” At the same time, you will build up a foundation of skills in STEM and/or arts electives. During your Junior and Senior years, you will be expected to take advantage of and seek out experiences to broaden and deepen your interests or craft. Your final year at A3 should end strong. As a culminating experience of your high school education, you will, of course, be expected to finish strong academically, in addition to pursuing your STEM or arts focus at greater depth. This pursuit is often connected to a required Senior Project. This project will act as a “capstone” that is tied to your major or your focused course of study. All capstone projects must have some form of public demonstration, either as a recital, curated display, or a performance, depending on the form the project takes. You will work with a mentor and your Writing Group teacher to formulate and realize a capstone event that is required for graduation. Your project will require work outside of school hours. We hope you find this information helpful in planning your course choices at A3. Please be advised that the information in this guide is subject to change. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the counselor or administrator. The contact information of each may be found on the A3 website.

Using this Guide Study this guide carefully.

While making course selections, students and parents should keep in mind the following: Courses are divided into two types: Required Core Required core courses are those that a student must pass to satisfy State of Oregon and Springfield Public Schools School District requirements. Required Electives (Other Subject) Required elective courses are designed to build skills in areas of study that meet the student’s needs for career and college readiness, as well as the pursuit of individual interests.

All courses being offered are dependent on enrollment and budget. Courses are on a rotation and not all the classes listed are offered each year. If an insufficient number of students request a course or funding for staffing is not sufficient, certain courses may not be offered.

Earning Your Diploma The Academy of Arts and Academics and Springfield Public Schools believes that student success is our most important outcome. We are committed to upholding the dream of opportunity for each of Springfield's children, and we stand behind our vision of "Every Student a Graduate Prepared for a Bright and Successful Future." In 2007, the State Board of Education adopted new Oregon high school diploma requirements. These new requirements were designed to ensure that all students have the skills necessary for success in the 21st century. Credit Requirements (24 total) ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

English: 4 credits Math: 3 credits (at the Algebra 1 level and higher) Science: 3 credits (scientific inquiry, 2 with lab experiences) Social Science: 3 credits Health: 1 credit PE: 1 credit Second Language/Art/Career & Technical Education: 3 credits Electives: 6 credits

Credit for Proficiency All students will have the option to earn credit for demonstrating proficiency. This means that a student is given credit for successful demonstration of knowledge and skills that meets or exceeds defined levels of performance. ● Students may demonstrate proficiency through classroom work, through documentation of learning experiences outside of school, or through a combination of these means. ● The State Board adopted revised OAR 581-022-1131 Credit Options in April 2009. ● For more information about options for earning proficiency credits, please refer to your student’s high school academic counselor.

Essential Skills Beginning in 2012, the state began phasing in requirements for students to demonstrate that they are proficient in certain “essential skills” – skills that are deemed critical for future success – before they are awarded the diploma. These skills are: ● The ability to read and comprehend a variety of texts ● The ability to write clearly and accurately ● The ability to apply mathematics in a variety of settings Personalized Learning Requirements Personalized learning, learning beyond the classroom, and connections to the adult world are critical for preparing each student, whatever path they take after graduation. The Personal Learning Requirements help personalize the diploma for each student and help students plan for their post-high school goals. Oregon requires students complete personalized learning activities as part of the graduation requirements. Additional Information about the Traditional Diploma A student will be awarded a Springfield Public Schools diploma if: ● they meet the academic content and credit standards ● they complete the personalized learning requirements, and ● they demonstrate proficiency in Essential Skills, as required by the Oregon Department of Education and adopted by the Springfield Public Schools School Board. Students are accountable for the graduation requirements that apply to the year they first entered 9th grade, regardless of whether graduating early or taking longer than 4 years to graduate. Other Diploma Options Some students will be eligible for other diploma options. The eligibility criteria for alternative diploma and certificate options are set by state law. Students who are eligible and their parent(s)/guardian(s) will be informed by school staff as part of the student’s individual planning process.

Academic Help/Support If a student is struggling in a class there are several options to obtain help. 1. Ask your teacher for help. Most teachers are available before and after school and by appointment. Your teacher is going to be able to help you, and they know the curriculum. 2. Use your peer partners or groups members. Often students are working on projects together. Use them. 3. Ask your advisory for help. Students see their advisors nearly everyday, they are there to help. 4. Use Synergy as a resource. Assignments are often attached and class notes/directions can be found in Synergy. 5. Math tutoring after school 6. Use a planner and form a study group

Conferences Student-Led Conferences happen in October. Each student is responsible for arranging a conference with teachers and parents to discuss their learning and the progress through the EDCRO system. Mid-Year Reviews happen in March. Each student is responsible to provide specific evidence of their learning through the EDCRO process. End-of-the-Year Reviews are scheduled for June. Each freshman student is responsible for arranging a conference with teachers and parents to discuss their learning and the progress through the EDCRO system. Sophomores and juniors present not only academic, but also artistic progress in front of a panel of specifically chosen art professionals. And Seniors present to their peers, parents, and teachers.

Assessment The Academy of Arts and Academics’ assessment and graduation process prepares students to do the work required in college and the workplace. Students graduate by successfully demonstrating their proficiency through portfolios, exhibitions, and performances. A3 also has made a commitment to communicating with parent(s)/guardians(s) about student progress. Parent(s)/guardians(s) will receive assessment information several times during the school year. Parent(s)/guardians(s) are encouraged to contact a student’s Writing Group teacher for additional information. Earning Credits Students at The Academy of Arts and Academics earn credits in designated curriculum areas based upon the successful completion of a course of study. Credits will be awarded based on the depth and breadth of the state content and skills standards addressed in the curriculum area during a term of study. Proficiency Performance at A3 will be assessed with respect to a proficiency system. Students will be expected to continue to work at improving any area until proficiency is achieved. Typically, proficiency is translated to student transcripts in the following manner: Exceeds: Num. Score = 4, Grade = A Proficient: Num. Score = 3, Grade = B Approaching: Num. Score = 2, Grade = C or Pass Not yet: Num. Score = 1, Grade = No Pass, Credit may be denied The Graduation requirements at A3 are designed around the standards for acceptance at an Oregon University (typically UO). A3 offers many opportunities to support those students who are struggling with their course work—both in academics and in STEM/arts electives. For those students that require it, additional time will be dedicated for academic support in the afternoon. If a student fails to pass a graduation requirement with a C- or better, the course may need to be repeated.

Admission Requirements All universities conduct more comprehensive reviews of applicants who do not meet the minimum required GPA for admission. Most schools require at minimum: 15 core academic units 16 or more core units are recommended) and completion of the SAT or ACT tests (minimum test scores are not set, but test results must be submitted and may be used during additional campus review processes and may impact scholarships). Universities also require a standardized writing exam, which can be met through the writing portion of the SAT or ACT tests. The ACT is offered to our current juniors in early spring; there is no make up day. Core Subject Requirements High school graduates need to satisfactorily complete at least 15 units of college preparatory high school classes (with one unit defined as the equivalent of one year or one credit). This must include 4 units of English, 3 units of Mathematics, 3 units of Science, 3 units of Social Studies, and 2 units of a World Language, with a grade of C- or above or demonstrated proficiency. Pass/No Pass grades and “D” grades in core subjects are not accepted for any of these subjects. FuelEd online classes at A3 may/may not meet the university requirements in core subject areas.

Be sure to check the particular admissions requirements of any university or college (private or public) to which you are interested in applying. Note that many colleges require additional units in particular subject areas and some require additional credits in Fine Arts. Naviance is a great tool to help research college entrance requirements.

College Credit Opportunities College Now classes are offered at A3. College Now classes are classes taught by A3 teachers and students can earn both high school and college credit. DUCKLINK is a program through the University of Oregon available to juniors and/or seniors who have taken every class available to them at A3 in one subject area and would like to continue learning in that subject area. Students may contact your counselor to discuss options, registration, process and timelines. Applications are due 8 weeks prior to the quarter. Lane Community College classes may be taken by juniors and/or seniors who have taken every class available to them at A3 in one subject area and would like to continue learning in that subject area. Students may contact your counselor to discuss options, registration, process and timelines. Applications are due 8 weeks prior to the quarter. College Prep Information Planning for college should begin as soon as possible. A3 has a counselor to help navigate the process. A variety of opportunities will be offered to all A3 students, including Financial Aid Night, college info sessions around our community, and college field trips. Naviance Naviance is an online website that provides comprehensive information that students can access to learn about careers, colleges, scholarships, and four-year course planning. Students can access their Naviance account anytime from home or school. During the school year college representatives will visit with interested students. Advisory This is a class that every student attends all 4 years while at A3. Students will meet with their Writing Group/Advisory teacher and a parent(s)/guardian(s) three times a year to review their portfolio, their transcript, and their plans for the future. PSAT PSAT testing is offered to all sophomores and juniors for free in early October. The PSAT is offered during the school day. In addition to providing opportunities to measure performance on a national scale and providing practice in testing formats employed on the SAT college admission test, the PSAT is also utilized to qualify students for the National Merit Scholarship competitions. Further, students can meet essential skills in

Reading and Math if they meet the cut score. There is no make-up day; you must be on time to school on the test day. Other Standardized Tests While not the primary means of assessment at A3, standardized tests are one way to measure student achievement. All students will take the Oregon Assessment Tests. Standardized testing is part of the college application process. Most colleges, universities, and scholarship programs require one of two standardized tests: the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) or the ACT (American College Test). Accordingly, students at A3 will learn strategies for taking standardized tests as part of their academic preparation. ACT testing is offered to all juniors for free in February. The ACT is a college admission test, offered during the school day. In addition to providing opportunities to measure performance on a national scale students can meet essential skills in Reading, Writing and Math if they meet the cut score. There is no make-up day; you must be on time to school on the test day. Academics while in high school are one of the best predictors of success in college, but admissions officers are taking a closer look at the rigor of academic preparation and the kind of courses a student takes. Please note, the Oregon University System schools will not accept “D” or “P” grades in college prep core courses. Extra-curricular activities will still be very important on a student’s record.

Career Technical Education (CTE) for the Arts at A3 In 2019-20 A3 will implement two CTE pathways focused on fine and performing arts: The Visual and Media Arts Pathway and The Performing Arts Pathway. These pathways prepare students for careers in the arts with emphasis on college and career skills such as technology, collaboration and communication. ​The Visual and Media Arts Pathway includes drawing, painting, photography, digital arts and design. The Performing Arts Pathway includes vocal performance, instrumental music,music theory, composition, and performance skills What is CTE CTE stands for Career Technical Education. CTE provides students with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in future careers and to become lifelong learners. In total, about 12.5 million high school and college students are enrolled in CTE across the nation. What is a CTE Program of Study (POS) A CTE Program of Study is a sequence of classes that focus on preparing students for a future in a designated career area. CTE programs offer general career skills that help students succeed in any field they pursue. Why should I take CTE classes? CTE programs are endorsed by the state and nationally recognized by colleges and career industries. Participating in CTE is a great way to explore career interests while strengthening academic and technical skills through relevant projects. How do CTE Programs relate to Majors at A3? Starting in 2019-20, CTE programs will be offered in addition to A3 arts majors. Visual and Media Arts majors and Performing Arts majors will have the option to join a CTE program of study as part of their major. Some majors may require students to complete the CTE program in order to earn honors in their major. Not all Visual and Media Arts and Performing Arts classes will offer CTE credit. How many CTE classes do I have to take in order to complete a CTE POS? Students must take 2.0 credits of CTE classes in a designated CTE Program of Study in order to complete the CTE program. CTE courses are 0.5 credits each. What is required to complete a CTE Program of Study? Each CTE Program of Study has required courses. For example, students who wish to complete the Visual and Media Arts CTE POS must take a CTE Design Basics course. CTE students will also be expected to participate in an arts-based internship. Starting in 2021, CTE students will also take a final assessment in the form of a performance or portfolio review.

Forecasting Information Scheduling students to meet the graduation requirements in 4 years is a huge puzzle for each student who enters A3. We take this very seriously and want to ensure families and students do too. Students are encouraged to be mindful of the choices they are making and seek guidance as needed. Students will select their courses for the next school year in the spring with the help of teachers, advisors, and parents/guardians. Once this information is collected, decisions are made on how many sections are needed. Once student requests are made, changes will only be made to students schedules if they have extenuating circumstances. Students should receive information in the Fall containing details about their schedule and registration for the new school year. Students will receive their schedules at Registration. All students should receive guidance from their Writing Group/Advisory teacher and their parent(s)/guardian(s). Scheduling Corrections Once forecasted courses are submitted by the student, classes may not be changed unless: -There was a scheduling error on our part (academic misplacement) -A graduation requirement is needed -A documented health issue (a physician statement required) stating limitations

Majors and Content Area Offerings Humaniqueries and Advisory Humaniqueries is one of the fundamental aspects of A3. Humaniqueries are project-based classes that integrate science, social studies and language arts. These courses are divided into a freshman/sophomore rotation and a junior/senior rotation. The freshmen/sophomore classes, also called the Ones, offer Global and U.S. History and Biology specifically. The junior/senior courses give Government, Economics, Physics and Chemistry credits. Work is done primarily in teams and each semester culminates in performance of student learning called "Confluence." The course is required for all A3 students, each semester of all four years.​ Advisory is a daily class that all students attend. Advisory teachers serve as mentors to help students advocate for their needs. Advisory provides students with an introduction to the culture of the school and it is where they are taught the expectations and philosophy of A3. Students will learn the value of group work and participate in building the school’s culture and community. Advisory is also where students have the opportunity to explore and learn about post-high school possibilities. Course
