PARENT RELEASE

Parent Release is a non-credit bearing course for senior students who generally are accelerated in graduation credits. However, we do allow other students to request Parent Release periods when there are special or extenuating circumstances that merit it.

Required for Parent Release:

The Parent Release Request Form must be signed by the student and parent, then returned to the counselor.

The student should be off campus during his/her Parent Release period(s).

The student cannot apply for a Graduation Credit Waiver if they have used Parent Release periods

during high school.

Parent Release may only be taken during periods 1, 2, 7, or 8.

RELEASE TIME, SEMINARY

Through an agreement with the public schools, students can commit to a released time option for one period in order to receive religious instruction. Please note that Release Time is a privilege at Timpview, which requires commitment. Failure to attend will result in removal from seminary and enrolled in a Timpview course. Seminary is available during periods 1 – 8.

PEER TUTOR* (EL)

You will teach and support special need students to learn academic, vocational, social, and leisure skills.

*A maximum of two semesters of aide credit is permitted during all of high school.

AVID (EL)

The AVID course targets students in the academic middle–B, C, and even D students–with the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard. Typically, they will be the first in their families to attend college, and come from groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education. These are students who are capable of completing rigorous curriculum, but are falling short of their potential. AVID places these students on the college track, requiring them to enroll in the most rigorous courses that are appropriate for them, such as Honors and Advanced Placement. To support them in the rigorous coursework, AVID students learn organizational and study skills, develop critical thinking, learn to ask probing questions, receive and participate in enrichment and motivational activities to make their college dreams reality.
