Dear Parents and Students:
ASPIRA South Youth Leadership Charter School follows a comprehensive curriculum that contributes to our mission of enabling students to become confident, self-directed, and responsible life-long learners. In order to meet every child's needs, it is important for parents to review the 2013-2014 ASPIRA South Youth Leadership Curriculum Bulletin with their children and decide on the best plan to meet their educational goals. For this reason, course selection is an important process and should be approached only after a careful review of the School's offerings.
Spring registration also enables us to offer a diverse and encompassing curriculum which meets the standards of the State of Florida, while providing our students with elective courses of their interest. For this reason, it is critical that your child choose a second and third alternative, to assure that his/her pursuits are met to the best of our ability. Also, all the school's rules and requirements are part of the Curriculum Bulletin.
The Bulletin is designed to assist parents and students in selecting the appropriate courses for the next school year. As you read the Bulletin, you will find a considerable selection of both required and elective courses. During the spring registration period, Student Services Personnel will guide students through the final stage of the registration process: the completion of the Grade Level Subject Selection Sheet. Once the form is completed, the Administration will review all requests and begin developing the master schedule. Student schedules are then generated.
As the school's principal, I am certain that through the unified efforts of the parents and the faculty, ASPIRA South Youth Leadership Charter School will continue to excel in the 2013-2014 academic year. Additionally, we are pleased to announce that we have begun the process of seeking School Board approval to transition to a K thru 8 school emphasizing leadership, character, and college preparedness. More information on this transition will be forthcoming, and once approved by the District, a formal announcement will be made.
Yours in Education,
Garrick S. Keidan, M.S., Ed.
