NC DEMOSTRATED MASTERY OPTION

North Carolina’s New Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) Option for Students

Starting in 2015, students will be able to earn credit for a course without spending a set number of hours taking the course in a classroom.

Under the state’s new Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) option, uniquely qualified students may “test out” or bypass a course if they have already mastered the content.

The program provides another opportunity for students to learn new content, to challenge themselves with the next level of rigor in a subject, and even graduate early. This option is not designed to replace existing accelerated pathways, such as the Academically and Intellectually Gifted (AIG) program at WCPSS.

PSAT AT HSHS

The PSAT will be given on Wednesday, Oct 15th at 7:25 am. Students in the 9th and 11th grades can register to take the PSAT for a fee of $14. Juniors taking the PSAT will be eligible for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Students can pay online through the HSHS website or in person by submitting the registration forms (given in advisory on September 17) and fee to Ms. Traversi in Student Services. Registration is due by Friday, Oct 3rd. Please contact Ms. Young, Testing Coordinator or Ms. Harrell, Assistant Principal with questions.
 
On October 15th, all 10th grade students will be scheduled to take the PSAT at no charge.  In the past, the only students scheduled to take the PSAT were those that had successfully completed Math I. This was due to the fact that the math portions of the test generally require content knowledge associated with this course.  With this in mind, Holly Springs High School has decided to offer an Opt-Out option for students who have not yet met this requirement and therefore feel unprepared to take the test; however, we feel there is great benefit to students to take this assessment. Therefore, we will not permit students to opt out who have successfully completed Math I. Opt-out letters can be obtained from Ms. Traversi in Student Services. Information must be returned to Ms. Traversi no later than Friday, October 3. Please contact Ms. Young, Testing Coordinator or Ms. Harrell, Assistant Principal with questions
