    JHS ONLY OPTION for Ethnic Studies & Civics  (no college credit)

    Credits: 0.5 at Jackson per semester for a total of 1.0 credits for the year

    Courses: Ethnic Studies, Civics and CCRS--one semester Civics + one semester social studies elective credit + High School and Beyond Plan graduation requirement 

    Considerations: Uses JHS Honors Grade Scale; shows only on JHS transcript. Is a college level course matching the demands/material of Social Studies electives at most universities/colleges, taught at a stress-reducing pace. Having this course on your high school transcript is evidence that you have experience taking college courses, even if you didn't receive college credit for doing so. It is a great way to KNOW you're ready for college by practicing it beforehand!
