Dear NPHS students:

This NPHS Course Description Handbook has been designed and prepared to assist you in
planning a full program of studies for the coming school year. With the assistance of teachers,
counselors, administrators, and your parents, you will be able to develop a balanced set of
courses which will allow you to fulfill your own educational needs, as well as to meet the
educational requirements set by the Board of Education necessary for graduation from high
school.

If you attended high school here last year, then you have already started this programming
process, and you are selecting those courses leading toward graduation. Your task now is to
carefully determine what you need to take during the 2010-2011 school year. If you are new to
NPHS, you are beginning the process of selecting an overall program of studies.

In either case, please take advantage of the diverse and comprehensive educational opportunities
which are available at North Platte High School! Whether you are going on to college or
university studies, to a vocational/technical school, military or entering the work force, we have
an outstanding list of courses from which you can choose.

 The education which you receive at NPHS is extremely important, and it will form the
foundation for your future success. The entire high school faculty and staff are here to serve you.
If you need assistance of any kind as you consider your class options, please don’t hesitate to ask
for help!


Sincerely,


Jim Whitney, Principal

                                 SPECIAL REMINDERS

1.    Classes, when successfully completed, will earn the student 5 credit hours per
      semester.

2.    Based on an 8 period day, freshman and sophomore students are required to be
      enrolled in 7 classes per semester. Juniors are required to be enrolled in 6 classes
      each semester. Seniors are required to be present on campus 6 periods each
      semester; 5 of the 6 periods must be filled with classes and the 6th may be a student
      aide or study hall. Students dropping any class after the sixth week of the semester
      may receive a failing grade in that class for the semester.

3.    Students involved in athletics and/or activities must pass a minimum of four classes
      each semester.

4.    Spring registration is considered final. The NPHS Master Schedule of classes is
      composed, teachers are assigned, rooms are assigned and supplies/materials are
      purchased based upon the number of students registered for specific classes.
             If schedule adjustments are to be made based on changes in career goals or
      other legitimate reasons, those adjustments must occur before the beginning of the
      semester in which the changes take place. In other words, semester 1 changes must
      be completed BEFORE the beginning of semester 1 and semester 2 changes must be
      completed BEFORE the beginning of semester 2.

5.    Registration: Registration will take place in the spring of each year. Although
      students will receive specific instructions during that time from high school
      personnel, the responsibility for appropriate graduation and career choices rests
      with the students and his/her parents. The counseling staff is available to assist in
      making decisions related to course selections.

6.    Students out of school for long-term care (long-term defined as 10 days or longer)
      are responsible for taking their books with them.

7.      Students leaving school, transferring, or dropping are responsible for properly
        checking out of school and returning all of their books.
                                        WARNING
        Students, please note: If you do not sign up for courses which FULLY PREPARE
you for life after high school (i.e., college university work; vocational/technical skills;
military service) you are SEVERELY limiting your own ability to perform well in these
situations.
        Don’t take the easy courses just to GET BY. Enroll in classes that will completely
empower you to reach your highest academic potential. Courses at N.P.H.S. may appear to
be difficult now, but they will be even more difficult when you must experience them in the
future.

Dear Parent/Guardian of a Student in High Academic Standing,

North Platte High School (NPHS) and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) are pleased to
announce Advanced Scholars, an exciting program which extends online UNL college courses to
top high school students. Based on your student’s grades and academic maturity, your student is
eligible to participate in Advanced Scholars.

Through a partnership between UNL and NPHS, Advanced Scholars allows your student to earn
college credit while still in high school. This partnership means your high school is offering
select students like yours a chance to experience the rigors of college coursework, stay
challenged academically, and get a head start on their college career. The online courses are
general education courses typically taken by college freshman on the UNL campus and are
taught by University faculty. Students who register for and successfully complete Advanced
Scholars online courses earn UNL credit, verified by an official transcript.

By earning college credit during high school, students can get a head start on their undergraduate
degree and have more flexibility in choosing courses their first year on campus. Advanced
Scholars also exposes high school students to many of the same experiences they’ll encounter as
freshmen. This allows students to become familiar with a university system while still in the high
school environment, easing their transition to college.

Students participating in the Advanced Scholars program pay a one-time application fee to the
University of Nebraska. Should your student decide to apply to the University as a regular
undergraduate they will not need to pay the application fee again. And while students on the
UNL campus pay $187 per credit hour plus fees, Advanced Scholars courses are $100 per credit
hour, with no additional University fees.

You may visit the Advanced Scholars website http://AdvancedScholars.unl.edu or contact Keri
Hammond in the North Platte High School Counselor’s office for more information.
