Students are required to average six and one-half (6 1/2) to seven (7) credits each year unless enrolled in a work-study program.
A “B” average in a subject area is required for admission to advanced courses. This includes mathematics beyond trigonometry and advanced biology, chemistry, and physics. Students, whose achievement in the first year of a world language is below “C,” are not recommended to take additional work in that area without parent/teacher approval.
Records of courses, taken through accredited private schools or summer sessions, must show evidence of a minimum of 120 clock hours of instruction, in accordance with the Pennsylvania Department of Education regulations, if the credits are to apply toward graduation from Bethel Park.
Changes or alterations in course selection, when schedules are prepared for the following school term, will not be permitted after the close of the school year. Programs of study are normally developed in the spring which allows students sufficient time to make desired or necessary revisions. If the completion of a course in an accredited summer session requires a schedule change, adjustments should be made prior to the opening of school.
