MATH REQUIREMENT

The 3.0 credits of math consist of :

·         Integrated Math I/Algebra, Integrated Math II/Geometry, and Integrated Math III/Algebra 2; or

·         The third credit may also be completed through election of an alternative math credit that leads to a specific career goal identified in the High School and Beyond Plan.  This option requires completion of the documentation for students choosing a third credit of math other than Integrated Math III or Algebra 2 including parent signature.

 

HSPE (High School Proficiency Exam)

In addition to earning 22.5 credits, students are required to pass the HSPE. The HSPE is a test required by state law for all tenth grade students.   For the graduating classes of 2013-2016, students must pass the reading and writing HSPE, a state-approved alternative to the HSPE, or an assessment for students in special education. 

 

MATH/BIOLOGY EOC (End Of Course) EXAM

The EOC Math/Biology Exams are tests required by state law for all students enrolled in Algebra, Geometry and Algebra II or equivalent CTE math courses and biology.  Current state law requires students in the class of 2013 and 2014 to pass one EOC Math Exam (EOC 1/Algebra or EOC 2/Geometry).  The class of 2015 and beyond is required to pass both Math EOCs and the Biology EOC.  Students can also meet the math requirement by passing a state-approved alternative, or an assessment for students in special education. 

COLLEGE ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS

College-bound students should be aware that entrance requirements vary from college to college. Contact the college or university you plan to attend directly to learn about their specific admission requirements. In general, four-year public universities in Washington state require, at a minimum, the following for admission:


ENGLISH………………………..4 years

MATHEMATICS…………...…...3 years (algebra I, geometry, and adv. algebra)
SCIENCE………………………..2 years (biology, chemistry, or physics)
FOREIGN LANGUAGE………..2 years (of the same foreign language)

Students will be required to earn a specific number of credits in each of six subject areas, called College Academic Distribution Requirements (CADRs). The subject areas are math, English, science, social science, world languages, and the arts. Beginning in the fall of 2008, high school ninth grade students who plan to apply for admission to any of Washington’s public baccalaureate institutions in 2012 must earn three credits of CADR courses each year of high school, (including the twelfth grade year).
