DEFINTIONS:

“Course” Content Standards 

Standards are general statements that identify what information students should

know/understand or what skills/processes they should be able to do as a result of

their educational experience.  Standards are constant across the vocational

departments however the scope of what is taught and assessed varies in each

subject areas, as described by that standard’s “benchmarks”.

 

“Course” Benchmarks 

Benchmarks describe what students should know and be able to do at

developmental levels to attain the standards.  They are organized by

each vocational area and the courses offered in the high school.

 

“Course” Competencies/Indicators

Competencies/indicators describe exactly what the student will know or be able to do to indicate that the student has mastered the benchmark. 

The departmental Advisory Committee can dismiss a certain state competency

if locally they decide it does not have to taught in the high school

 

“Developmental Standards

Developmental Standards are not “benchmarked”, bur are fostered with appropriate experiences throughout the student’s high school education.  Examples would include the development of leadership, responsibility, cooperation, and group skills

 

*For the FACS department, the following is also included:

Units/Lessons

Units/Lessons are listed for an overall view of the class.  The teacher can alter this to fit the needs of each particular group of students that have elected to take the course.  This will allow flexibility for the needs of the students to be met each year

Amendment to yearly offering in the FACS Department

 

2006-2007 School Year

 

-The Housing class and Child Development and Parenting class will not be offered this year but MUST be taught in the next year

           

 

  • Decision was made due primarily to the career and departmental focus on Culinary Arts for the S/O FACS department

 

  • Due to the large amount of seniors and juniors requesting the Foods and Nutrition I  and Foods and Nutrition II classes(over 60 students)

 

  • Some of these same students requested the Spring semester Foods and Nutrition II class and needed to take Foods and Nutrition I as a prerequisite this current Fall semester

 

  • The 11 and 12th grade students did not have the flexibility to take the Foods I and Foods II classes

 

  • There were primarily 9-10th graders electing to take the Housing class and can possibly fit this class in future years, including next year

 

  • There were a small number of 9-10th graders electing to take Housing compared to the large number for Foods I and Foods II

 

  • Emphasis was placed on the fact that Housing and Child Dev. And Parenting classes have to be offered next year when this decision was made
