New classes for next year

TCHS is not only constructing new buildings, but also pilot programs for Advanced Graphic Communications, Manufacturing and Logistics Management and full-year Algebra 1 for the 2017-2018 school year. Administration seeks to gain district and University of California approval for the courses no later than June.
Due to necessary master schedule adjustments and the duration of the approval process, graphics teacher Ms. Lisa Kidd and woodworking teacher Mr. Elias Bourjeili will recommend current students to take the debut advanced elective courses, which they most likely will teach. Advanced Graphic Communications will expand on concepts introduced in Graphic Communications, while Manufacturing and Logistics Management will be the highest level of woodworking. The number of periods for each course will depend on the number of recommended students who ultimately elect to take them.
“The administration’s first task is always to meet the students’ needs,” Assistant Principal Ms. Laura Sanchez said. “By providing pathways for graphics and woodworking, we hope to ensure that students are college ready and career ready.”
The new Algebra 1 course will allow Rams to take more advanced science classes, like chemistry, which require students to have completed Algebra 1. While TCHS will still offer one-year Algebra 1A and one-year Algebra 1B courses, Rams may take the full-year Algebra 1 course if they meet its prerequisites, including grades, teacher recommendations and test scores on multiple measures.
