Concurrent Enrollment

posted May 7, 2016, 11:25 AM by District Office   [ updated Oct 10, 2016, 3:18 PM ]

In order to offer our students an opportunity to earn college credits while still in High School, ESUSD is partnering with Cerro Coso Community College to offer concurrent enrollment classes. This means that students can earn both high school and college credits for the same class.

 

Cerro Coso enrollment fees of  $46/unit are waived (up to 11 units) for K-12 students. Nonresident tuition will apply if the K-12 student is an international student, not a US citizen, not a California resident (important to note for CHS students who reside in NV), or has not lived in California for one year and one day prior to enrolling at Cerro Coso. There will be a $1 Associated Student Body Fee for all students, including concurrent students. This fee will be collected at the mandatory meeting listed below.  ESUSD is currently offering to pay for textbooks. However if students drop the class the student is responsible for reimbursing the district for the price of the book.

 

To enroll in a Spring Class for 2016, an ESUSD student must:

1.     Attend a mandatory meeting on Tuesday November 8th at 6pm.

2.     Have a 2.75 cumulative GPA.

3.     Have an available period to take the course.

4.     Take the PDEV C052-Becoming a Successful Online Student. This class only needs to be taken once and it can be completed         simultaneously with their first online class.

5.     Complete the Concurrent Student Release Form.

6.     Register for enrollment at Cerro Coso. Students need their social security number to complete their registration. Cerro Coso             staff will be on the CHS campus on Tuesday Oct. 18th to  help facilitate the admission or update process during 7th period.

7.     Understand that Cerro Coso and ESUSD have different policies, including drop dates and grades

a. ESUSD students have 2 weeks to make schedule changes at the beginning of each semester, which includes concurrent enrollment classes. If the student decides to drop the class after the 2 week mark, they will earn an F and zero credits for that period even though they will also be assigned another class to attend for the remainder of that semester.

b. ESUSD does not accept D’s. If a student earns a D via Cerro Coso, they will still earn an F on their HS transcript and receive zero credits for the course.

Yosemite/Wilderness Opportunities

posted Feb 11, 2014, 4:08 PM by District Office   [ updated May 7, 2016, 10:25 AM ]

We live in an amazing area and have partnered with some very generous organizations to provide awesome opportunities for our HS students to get out into the wilderness. Please take a minute to learn about possible adventures for our students.  NO experience is necessary...Click on links to find out more detailed information and If you are interested shoot me an email and we will get more information to you jsantoyo@esusd.org

First is Wildlink- http://wildlinkprogram.org

WHAT: A co-ed week long backpacking trip into Yosemite, completely free for the first 11 ESUSD students to sign up.

 

WHEN: June 12-17, 2016

 

WHY:  During a five-day backpacking expedition, students learn about the natural world first-hand, challenge themselves, and gain an understanding and appreciation for wild places.

 

WHO is eligible to attend: HS students who will be 9th-12th graders next year 16/17. Liz Roripaugh science teacher at LVHS will chaperone.

 

INFO: Katie Wallace from Wildlink will host an informational meeting for students and parents on Tuesday May 24th at LVHS at 3:15 and at CHS at 5:30. 

YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE ENROLLMENT PACKET BELOW. Some of the images are not loading correctly. I will update soon.



Second is the Armstrong Scholars Program - http://www.naturebridge.org/armstrong-scholars-program-yosemite
an all female, two-week long backpacking trip in Yosemite that is focused on personal growth, adventure, and discovery.  This trip is in honor of the late Joie Armstrong and has been running since 2000.  It has a whole culture and community around it, and we have had several WildLink alumni attend in the past.  It is fully scholarshipped, except for $150 (the program costs about $1500 per student to run).  If the $150 is still too much of a hardship, we can usually work something out.

Last is the Field Research Course -https://www.naturebridge.org/yosemite-summer-field-research-course
 a coed, two-week long backpacking trip in Yosemite in which students create their own scientific research project, including coming up with a question, creating methods, collecting data, analyzing results, and presenting the results to the general public and National Park Service scientists.  This program is great for students who are considering careers in science (and it looks great on a college application).  The past two years, we have not used up all of our scholarship funding due to lack of applications, so we highly encourage students to apply!

Feel free contact Katie Wallace Wilderness Programs Manager for more information.
