Possible Courses and Institutions

For the 2018-2019 school year, the San Ramon Valley Unified School District will implement new Personalized Learning options at our middle and high schools. The intent of these options is to provide flexibility and options for middle and high school students and families, increase overall student wellness, and ultimately improve  working conditions for staff by lowering class sizes at our middle and high schools.

 

Based on feedback from students, parents, staff and board members, we have refined these options over the past five  months. In the coming weeks and months, we will be sharing more details and specifics with our middle and high school students, staff and parents. Information will also be shared at the Course Registration Information Nights at each high school.

New in 2018-2019 for Middle Schools

 

Option to Take 6 or 7 Classes

Middle school students (and families) will have the option of taking 6 or 7 classes. No student would have to reduce the number of classes from 7 unless they choose to do so.

 

Summer Option for Promoted 8th Graders

Upon completing 8th grade, students will be eligible to take summer school courses that will appear on their high school transcript and will count towards high school graduation credit.


New in 2018-2019 for High Schools

 

Graduation Credit for Online, Off-Campus and College Courses

SRVUSD will provide credit towards graduation for completion of accredited online courses, off-campus courses and college courses. A total of 40 credits from non-district courses can be included on the official SRVUSD transcript.

 

Summer School Program through SRVUSD

SRVUSD is expanding its 2018 summer school program to offer remediation, advancement, and courses needed for graduation requirements. A separate email will be going out soon about SRVUSD’s 2018 High School Summer School Program.

 

Expanded Heritage School Program

The Heritage School Program provides credit towards graduation for world languages that are not currently taught at SRVUSD schools. We will expand the current course and language offerings.

 

Internships

Student internships will be eligible for credit towards graduation on official SRVUSD transcripts.

 

Number of Credits Needed for Graduation

Beginning with the Class of 2019, the total number of credits required for graduation has been reduced from 240 to 220 by reducing the elective requirement by 20 credits.

 

Change in the Minimum Six-Period Day Requirement for High School Students
Starting in the 2018-19 school year, the minimum six-period day requirement will be   reduced to a minimum five-period period day to allow students more flexibility in their schedules and to align with  the reduction in the number of credits required for graduation. As a result, students will be able to take 5, 6 or 7 on-campus courses in high school.

 

New in 2018-2019 for Both Middle and High Schools

 

Flexible Physical Education Requirements

SRVUSD will provide flexible PE credits for Independent Study Physical Education (grades 6-12), Marching Band PE (grades 10-12), and Athletic PE (grades 10-12).

 

School Loop Daily Emails

School Loop daily emails will continue to be an option. Beginning in 2018-2019, parents who register for School Loop will need to opt-in to choose to receive daily emails. The current default is that parents who register for School Loop receive a daily email and that they have to opt-out to avoid receiving them. Whether or not they choose to receive daily School Loop emails, parents will continue to have full access to School Loop via the Internet and the School Loop app.

 

Flexible School Start/End Times

Middle and high school principals have surveyed students, parents and staff to determine interest in flexible start/end times. Based on this feedback, some schools may choose to move forward with flexible start/end times in 2018-2019. Schools will be communicating directly with their communities regarding next steps.
