For high school sophomores through seniors and even college students, a Leadership Internship is the ultimate resume and college application builder. This is a chance to hone mentoring skills, obtain valuable leadership traits, and gain intellectual property knowledge. Camp Invention needs great Leadership Interns, but space is limited. http://www.invent.org/inspire/leadership-intern-program-10th-12th-college/
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)
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.
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.
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
Check out the Guidance website for many new scholarships. There are new applications added as they become available!
