College Credit Plus Mandatory Meetings
Parents, if your child is interested in taking a CC+ class next year either in our building, on a college campus, or online, please plan to attend this mandatory meeting to review the College Credit Plus program (CC+). Students and parents MUST sign the intent form at this event to start the process of enrolling in a CC+ class. Signing this form does NOT mean the student has to take a CC+ course, but it is a requirement if they do register. Local colleges will have tables set up for questions after the brief presentation. Please contact the guidance office if you have any questions or concerns.
All meetings will be held in the cafeteria of Louisville High School.
New Attendance Policy - HB 410
Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, several changes have taken effect. Excessive absences interfere with students’ progress in mastering knowledge and skills necessary to graduate from high school and prepare for higher education and the workforce. (Click for more information)
ACT FREE FOR JUNIORS
The State of Ohio is paying for all current juniors to take the ACT at Louisville High School this winter/spring (February 27, 2018). This test will be administered to all juniors during the school day. This is a great opportunity for all students to take the ACT at least once during their high school career or to retake it for a higher score. Students are encouraged to log into their NAVIANCE account (link here) and use the ACT test prep, which is also free of charge. Please contact the Guidance office if you have any questions or need your NAVIANCE log-in information.
The Class of 2018 has the honor of establishing a new tradition for Louisville City Schools and the #LeopardNation by completing a year-long capstone experience culminating in a multi-day Capstone Showcase.
The capstone experience includes the required components listed in the document provided to all seniors in their English class. Download a copy of the Senior Capstone Project Requirements.
Aultman Ambassador Program
Aultman Hospital and Malone University’s School of Nursing and Health Sciences and Exercise Science Program are proud to partner, for the fifth year, with Louisville High School to help lead our community to improved health through education and encouragement of good nutrition and physical activity.
The ambassador program provides an excellent leadership opportunity for teenagers to reflect on why obesity has become an increasingly important issue and gives students the opportunity to take action against this epidemic. Each year, students are selected to become a part of the program with a chance to earn a $250 scholarship. Students must reapply each year.

New Options for Honors Diplomas
The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) has recently announced the opportunity for students graduating in 2017 to pursue one of six honors diplomas. An honors diploma signifies that a student has challenged themselves by taking and succeeding at high-level coursework and in real-world experiences.
The Louisville City School District is pleased to offer five of the six available designations:
1. Academic Honors Diploma
2. Career Tech Honors Diploma
3. STEM Honors Diploma
4. Arts Honor Diploma (includes dance, drama/theatre, music and visual art)
5. Social Science and Civic Engagement Honors Diploma
To be eligible, students must complete units, or credits, in specific subjects (see attached criteria chart). Students must meet all but one of the criteria to qualify for the Honors Diploma. The revised criteria from ODE include the submission of a portfolio of work and a minimum of 30 hours of documented relevant field experience. Download Criteria Chart
Graduation Requirements 2018 and Beyond
Ohio House Bill 487 updated Ohio’s graduation requirements to ensure that all students are ready for success in college and work. The new requirements did not change the current courses or number of course credits that students must complete to be eligible for graduation. Additionally, every student in the Class of 2018 and beyond will have the opportunity to take a nationally recognized college admission exam free of charge in Grade 11.
Students will now have three pathways to graduation. These options are in addition to the Louisville High School diploma requirements (22 credits) as outlined in the student handbook and our guidance department webpage.
Check out the Guidance website for many new scholarships. There are new applications added as they become available!
