Opting out of PE for student athletes should be easier
To allow more academic flexibility for those students that participate in high school sports and club sports, opting out of PE should be easier or more readily available. This would allow students to take advantage of other academic electives and classes.
Vocational and non-college career tracks
Every student will NOT go to college. We need to provide career paths in vocational areas with high needs - construction, service industries, etc. Accept the fact that college is not a requirement to be successful in life.
Learning opportunities for students currently not offered
Put back the 'home-economic' classes revised for today's lifestyles. Students need to learn about coping in life without a parent, how to cook, clean, manage money, job skills, etc.
Could we look into bringing foreign language to the middle school?
With the new graduation requirements placed on the 2020 grad year and beyond, it gives very little room for high schoolers to have extra electives. Is it possible to have the two year foreign language started or done in 7th & 8th grade to free up more opportunities once the kids hit high school?
