Class of 2016
Just a few reminders:

1. Cap and Gowns still need ordered by many of you. Please go to jostens.com and do so. If you plan to borrow one from family or friends, you need only order the 'Classic Tassel'. Please let Mrs. Meredith or Mrs Courtney know if there are issues with ordering or obtaining your cap and gown.
2. If you could also let us know if you do NOT plan on walking with your classmates on graduation day, we would like to narrow down those who still need to place their gown orders.
3. Lastly, our Senior trip deposit ($100) is due due this Friday, Feb 12th. Travelling Classrooms will be in to collect money during lunches. If you do not have classes here at Fairless during our lunch mods, please get it to us beforehand and we will turn it in for you.

We are trying all options to make sure senior info is getting out to you. Please pass it on to your fellow classmates to check your school emails periodically for updates. I also have newsletters in my room with the updates. You have only 72 days until Graduation!

ATTENTION ALL JUNIORS
Immunization requirements for school attendance in Ohio have changed!! All students entering 12th grade in the fall of 2016, are now required by Ohio school law to show  proof of the following immunization BEFORE starting school:
? Meningococcal (A, C, Y, W­135) vaccine (to protect from Meningitis)
? If your student received a Meningitis (A, C, Y, W‐135) vaccine before the age of 16 years, a  second dose is required for school attendance in 12th grade.
? If your student will be receiving the first dose of Meningitis (A, C, Y, W‐135) vaccine and is  now 16 years of age or older, only one dose is required for school attendance in 12th grade. Any 12th grade student who has not had the required Meningitis (A, C, Y, W­135)  vaccination will not be permitted to attend school until proof of this immunization has been  received by the school.    The Meningitis immunization can be obtained at any time from now until the first day of 12th grade.    We encourage you to contact your Primary Care Physician or your local Health Department for an  appointment.

AIR and PARCC Results
AIR and PARCC score reports have been mailed home. These are the assessments that will be used to determine eligibility for graduation. Please review the Graduation Requirement Summary that was mailed home and contact Mr. Hearn with any questions at mike.hearn@fairless.sparcc.org
What Your Child’s PARCC Scores Mean in Ohio
Every student’s score on a PARCC test falls into one of five performance levels. Ohio law has its own way of describing what each of these levels tells us about your child. These are different from PARCC’s descriptions. Ohio’s performance levels are what Ohio schools follow. So it is important to understand your child’s performance based on Ohio’s descriptions. In the LEFT column below, look at your child’s performance level from the PARCC Parent Score Report. In the RIGHT column, read what this performance level means in Ohio.

The 2015/2016 Fairless High School Program of Studies
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.
Congratulations!
