Adolescent Education 9-12
Students in grades nine through twelve are expected to develop good work habits and attitudes, to complete rigorous core academic requirements, and to meet the requirements for a specialized career major in one of six career clusters:
Throughout high school, students are assisted in development of an educational and career plan to related individual strengths and interests to future educational choices and career goals. All students are expected to complete volunteer or work-based experiences.
Each high school offers a variety of elective and Advanced Placement classes. The Putnam County Technical Center also offers certificate programs in twenty-two areas for both high school students and adults. High school students may take up to twelve hours of college work during the senior year.
Putnam high schools were the first in the state to adopt a four-period block schedule wherein students may complete four credits each semester. Each school offers a noon activity tutorial program for academic assistance and extra-curricular activities.
Students may earn thirty-two credits in high school. For graduation, all students must achieve a “C” average and complete twenty-eight units of credit as well as hold 2.0 GPA, pass the Algebra Exit Exam, and complete career portfolio.
School to Work
Putnam County's School to Work program is an integral part of the kindergarten through adult curriculum. School-to-Work is designed to help students see the connections between school and their future career goals. It helps them identify their talents and strengths and develop the personal skills they need to become successful in life. At the elementary level, the school-to-work focus is career awareness; at the middle childhood level, the focus is career exploration; at the high school through adult level, the focus is career preparation for post-secondary education and employment.
