The Fairless High School Program of Studies for the 2015/2016 school year has been released. Next school year will have several changes designed to increase opportunities for our students and the Fairless community, while saving taxpayer dollars and meeting new state requirements. In accordance with state law, one major update this year is the transition of PSEO and Dual Credit to a new program called College Credit Plus. All public schools must offer CCP to students in grades 7-12 who can demonstrate that they are college ready. Part of this program challenges Ohio's public schools to expand their college course offerings. We are very excited that Fairless High School has partnered with Kent State Stark to offer our students many additional opportunities to earn college credit. This program will use a combination of Fairless Local teachers who meet the Board of Regents qualifications as adjuncts and Kent State adjuncts who will teach on campus at Fairless High School. There will be a required informational meeting for any students and their parents who are interested in CCP on March 12th at 6:00 p.m. in the high school gym. Family and Consumer Sciences will return to Fairless High School next year. FCS will replace the Career-based Intervention program to bring more elective opportunities to our students. This change will be budget neutral as it is replacing one program for another. Family Consumer Sciences will cover curriculum that is in great need at our high school, such as, Career Search, Child Development, Financial Management, Healthy & Safe Food preparation, Healthy Living, and Managing Life Transitions.
We are very excited that these programs will offer our students more opportunity, save taxpayer dollars, and most importantly help our students "Soar to EXCELLENCE!" If you have any questions feel free to contact Dr. Chambliss or Mr. Hearn.
