Only one core English course may be scheduled annually, e.g., a student may not complete grade 9 and grade 10 English in their freshman year. U.S. History Part II is a required grade 9 social studies course. Other courses with grade level designations must be scheduled appropriately throughout the student's high school career. Course sequencing exceptions must be approved by the administration.
