Program of Studies
The selection of a high school program is a very important task and one in which you, your parents, and your school counselors should give careful thought. Minimum and maximum class sizes have been established for each course. If a course fails to have the minimum number of students enrolled, it may be canceled.
It is essential that you decide which courses best fit your needs and register for them. Each year students are disappointed because a class they requested closes or cancels. Although all classes in this book may be initially offered, final decisions on class offerings will be determined by enrollment. Please note that some classes are offered on a rotating basis; see specific course descriptions for information.
For 2021-2022, Chardon Local Schools will again be partnering with Lakeland Community College for College Credit Plus (CCP) courses available on our campus. CCP offers qualified students the opportunity to enroll in college courses and earn college credit; which can also be used to fulfill high school graduation requirements. For more information regarding CCP, please meet with a school counselor.
Students are encouraged to plan carefully a program of study that will assist them in reaching their educational goals. The college preparatory program, accelerated, advanced placement programs and the career/technical educational programs outlined on the following pages are designed to guide students in selecting the subjects that will lead them toward achieving their goals. Enclosed below, you will be able to view the video presentation that we made along with a Google Slide Presentation and our Program of Studies.

A Message from Jan Hoffmann, School Nurse
Just a few quick reminders:
For Juniors: As you schedule your annual physicals for 2021 please be aware you will need a meningitis vaccine prior to the start of the 21-22 school year.. Ohio Revised Code states:
The meningococcal vaccine protects against meningococcal disease, a serious bacterial infection that can lead to bacterial meningitis. Meningococcal disease can cause an infection of the bloodstream or meningitis, or both, and can be life threatening if not promptly treated. The meningococcal vaccine is very effective at protecting against four strains of the meningococcal bacteria.
A copy of the immunization must be provided to the school nurse.
Please continue to be diligent about handwashing, mask wearing, social distancing, cleaning and disinfecting. We must continue these mitigating behaviors to control COVID-19 while we wait for the population to be vaccinated. We continue to ask that any student not feeling stay home and if you have any questions to contact your family physician or the school nurse. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Any questions, please contact me.

February Challenge: Gratitude.
It is said that gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues but the parent of all others. During this month, use your influence to impact others. Demonstrate, Love, Provide, Model, and GIVE Gratitude. One word, deed, or action can change a moment.
This has been a challenging year, and so many parts of our lives have changed. The one thing that we can do that can change our thoughts, hope, fears, and challenges is to show gratitude in little ways every day.
A simple google search on gratitude and brain science comes up with thousands of articles. This research is clear. Little acts of kindness change behavior to the giver and receiver.
This month, my goal is to intentionally highlight my 'focus for gratitude' each day and my hope is that it pays forward.
As much as we show gratitude each day, it is important to recognize our WHY. Let's all take a moment each day this month to give thanks!
Our daily challenge begins.
February 1, 2021: Day 1- Faith: If you walk into my office you will see a chalkboard above my desk that marks my mission statement. Several words stand out. The first is Faith. Today, I am grateful for faith. The ability to have it, feel it, and live it.
February 2, 2021: Day 2- Families: Today, I am grateful for the gift of families. The core of our lives looks different for all of us, but the roots grow strong and we always remember who we are and what we stand for.
February 3, 2021: Day 3-Grandparents/Parents/Guardians: Our first teachers, guides, nurses, and first love--grandparents, parents, and guardians. They come in all unique styles and energy. Today, I am grateful for the unconditional love, kindness, and creativity of all of those who first protected us.
February 4, 2021: Day 4- Children: It has been stated that Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see. Children are beautiful, gems in our eyes, gifts, and quite complicated passionate little loves. They are an endless book of wonder. Today, I give thanks for the joy and hope of our children.
February 5, 2021: Day 5- Friends and Community: Today I am grateful for friends and our community. Friends are an extension of our family providing us with humor, support, and love through good and bad times. Likewise, our community is the support system that lifts us up, encourages us, and is our core and our home. Together, they make us and shape us.
