GEAR UP 10th Grade Registration
T-2-4 and Academic Press • T-2-4: Every student will graduate ready to enter a Technical program, a 2-year program, or a 4-year program. • Access to rigorous coursework to create a College and Career Ready culture
College & Career Readiness • “College” and/or “Career”: students leaving LC with the ability to pursue the college and/or career option of their choice that leads to a post-secondary credential: BA, AA, high-skill certificates, work-readiness credential or apprenticeship. • Readiness: The level of academic preparation necessary for a student to enroll and succeed without remediation in both credit-bearing, college courses, and/or, enter the workforce ready to learn and succeed at job specific skills. This level of academic preparation is the same in both options.
Choosing Classes We build our master schedule based on student interest and need. It is important for students to make the most informed choices now so we build the proper classes.
Building a Schedule School Board & LC Policy states that ALL students will maintain a schedule of no less than classes. 6 Students must sign up for the required classes listed on your registration form.
