The Mississippi Department of Education’s Approved Courses for the Secondary Schools of Mississippi offers a wide variety of courses for high school students, beginning with grade seven and continuing through grade twelve. The purpose of the Approved Courses for the Secondary Schools of Mississippi is to help select the courses that are best for students. Choosing the right courses for a high school program is an extremely important task and should be thoughtfully developed with students and their parents.
When Using this manual, Guiding Questions to Consider:
- What courses are required for graduation?
- When will the school offer the required courses?
- What are the local interests and areas which need developing?
- How will you use the ISP (Individual Success Plan) to create a secondary course plan best suited for your students and their high school goals?
- How can the school strategically plan (or offer) academic programs that move students forward?
