2018-19 AP and Student Programming Seminar (Tuesday, February 20 at 6:00 PM)

On Tuesday, February 20 we will be hosting our annual AP and Schedule Programming Information Night beginning at 6:00 PM in the auditorium.  The first part of the evening will allow parents and students the chance to get to know more about AP offerings at McBride, learn about expected workload in each class, and ask teachers questions about specific courses.  We feel this is critical for parents and students to hear about the program and expectations so they can make informed programming decisions.  We want to encourage students to challenge themselves and help them be better prepared for college and career opportunities after high school.  We also want to make sure students understand the workload so they do not over extend themselves.  We are hoping to help families make informed decisions based on the needs o each individual student.  This session will run until about 7:15.  We will take a short break and follow-up with information on reviewing student programming choices.  The second half of the evening will focus on how to access the courses and having open dialogue with their student.  Counselors will be visiting classrooms for every grade level in the coming weeks.  They will be guiding students through the process of selecting their courses for the 2018-19 school year.  The selection of classes will be done through the StudentVue platform.  We want parents to have a chance to access the proposed schedule and have open dialogue with their students.  All Parents and students are encouraged to attend so please plan on attending this extremely valuable seminar.

Attendance Policies

Attendance Matters

Good attendance is one of the major factors for student success in school. Maintaining good attendance school wide also helps our district maximize their Average Daily Attendance (ADA) funding. School districts receive the largest portion of their operational funding based on attendance.  If we can meet our attendance rate target of 95.41% our site will receive a check from the district to be used to support school wide activities such as field trips, campus events, etc. Below are a few suggestions on how you can help McBride exceed our targets and help the students succeed in the classroom.

1. Please be sure students clear absences the day they return to school.  Absences are cleared when the student or parent/guardian submit a note to the main office indicating the date(s) and reason for the absence.

2. Understand the state only recognizes illness, doctor’s appointments, court appearances, and death of an immediate family member as excused absences. All other reasons have to be marked as unexcused.

3. Because we do not get funding credit for unexcused absences please avoid missing school for vacations and trips.

4. Students must see their teachers immediately following an absence to obtain make-up work. 

5. Please inform the main office if a student will be out of school for multiple days.  Student’s should also communicate with their teachers via School Loop to get make-up work.

Three Pathways- One Vision

Three Pathways- One Vision 

McBride High School has three pathways, McBride Engineering, McBride Health Medical and McBride Criminal Justice and Investigation. All three pathways engage students around their interests, find relevant connections to real world activities, and gauge student learning through collaborative, hands-on projects. All three pathways prepare students for the demands of college and the workforce. With workplace learning experiences in their 12th grade year, all three pathways empower and inspire students to make their own path and determine their own future.
 
A Unique Experience 
 
McBride High School looks and feels different than any other high school you may have seen. With four career labs and other specialized spaces students will demonstrate what they have learned through projects, team collaboration and connections with industry partners. Students will collaborate in open areas designed for each pathway. Teachers will also work as a team to meet the needs of individual students and create a coherent educational experience. Addressing subjects at each grade level and centered on a career-themed course, students will see the natural connections between the theme of their pathway and English, History, Science and Math.
 
Challenging Academics
 
All three McBride pathways are focused on completing the UC and CSU Entrance Requirements (a-g) with a sequence of courses that are aligned to college expectations. Each pathway expects to create options for students to earn college credits while in high school.
