Students are now required only 24 credits to graduate from high school; therefore, we are allowed to offer only seven credits each school year. Northside High School has decided to offer an enrichment period in addition to the seven credited classes. This class will not count as a Carnegie unit, but it will allow your student valuable time during the school day. During this period, students will have the opportunity to receive tutoring in areas where they might be struggling. This class period will be used for required standardized testing, rather than pulling them from English or math classes as we have in the past. This will be a time for the counselor to come in and discuss study skills, career planning, or college readiness. Independent reading time, similar to DEAR time used in middle school, can be continued during part of the enrichment class time. If a student has been absent and needs to make up a test or other work, this time can be used rather than missing more academic time as they deal with make-up work. This will be a time that we can invite military recruiters, college recruiters, business leaders, and other such resource people to be available to speak with our students at length, rather than their being just available for a brief chat during lunch, as we often have them do now. The enrichment class period will ultimately allow students a time to gain valuable educational skills, as well as receive academic and career relevant exposure, without losing academic class time to do so.
