Letter from Mrs. Fayson
Dear Trojan Family,
Per the Troy City Schools Academic Continuity Plan, the final course grade for second-semester courses will be the third-nine weeks' grade. Students currently failing the third-nine week period will be given every opportunity to improve that grade. Each student who is currently failing will be contacted by their teacher and an individual plan will be prepared to ensure they are given the opportunity to successfully complete the course.
As always, we will begin the next school year by assessing our students' needs and meeting them where they are to help them succeed. Additionally, due to the lack of continuity of high school courses and semesters, we will provide some enrichment in critical standards to meet the students' needs over the next nine weeks. Student participation is crucial in order to prepare for future academic coursework. Each teacher will be available for students daily and respond to all communication in a timely manner. If any student is in need of a Chromebook or paper copies of assignments please contact your teacher so we can make this happen.
Students enrolled in AP courses will have the opportunity to take their exams in an online format. The exams will cover the material that most schools were able to cover before March and will be comprised of a 45-minute free-response question. Students may access the AP YouTube Channel for live classes and recordings covering the content found on these new exams. Exam dates and information regarding the submission of exams will be posted on the AP College Board website on April 3 and communicated to students by their teachers starting April 6.
Seniors, the Troy City Schools Academic Continuity Plan states that seniors who are on track to graduate and in good standing as of the third-nine weeks reporting period will be considered “as meeting the graduation requirements” for the State of Alabama. Those students who are enrolled in a fourth nine weeks class that was not offered in the third nine-week period, like Economics, must still complete the assignments given to receive that credit which is needed for graduation. Students enrolled in the Ready to Work or MSSC classes will also need to complete their work in order to credential and complete the program. Seniors who are not on track to graduate will be given the opportunity for credit recovery. The ALSDE has waived all testing requirements due to the pandemic; therefore, successful completion of the Civics Exam is not a requirement for this year’s graduation.
I am beyond thankful for each and every one of you and know we can get through these uncertain times together!
