Prerequisites and Placement in Sequential Courses
Students who receive lower than a grade of "C" in sequential subjects such as math or language should consider attending summer school to improve their grades and their chances of success in the more advanced levels of the subjects.
Due to the sequential nature of certain courses and the necessity for establishing a firm foundation prior to moving onto advanced work, many courses have prerequisites listed (e.g., Algebra I is a prerequisite for Algebra II). For the majority of students these prerequisites should be followed. Students who feel they have sufficient preparation in a specific area should discuss this with the teacher, school counselor and department supervisor prior to the selection of a course for which they have not met the stated prerequisite.
For placement other than the normal sequence in sequential courses, examination may be necessary but credit will not be granted. Refer to Graduation Requirements for further details.
