PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE TO STUDENTS AND PARENTS
Dear Students and Parents:

Preparing students for post secondary success is at the heart of all we do at Westland Hialeah Senior High School. As your child prepares to select his/her courses for the 2011-2012 schoolyear, I would like to take the opportunity to commend you on choosing Westland Hialeah Senior High School as the school where your child will pursue his/her academic goals. As you peruse this bulletin, I encourage you to look closely at all the programs we have to offer. I ask that you become partners in our efforts to educate our students and prepare them for successful careers beyond high school. With your help, we can all continue to make Westland Hialeah Senior High School an academic powerhouse in Miami Dade County Public Schools. The faculty, staff, and administration at Westland Hialeah Senior High School take great pride in providing all students with the opportunity to achieve a first class education. Our teachers are committed professionals whose only goal is to assist our students in reaching their academic potential. Our academies are designed to provide our students with a progressive course of study that will prepare them for future career success. In today’s global economy, it is critical that all students are provided with the skills necessary to compete for the jobs of the future. With this in mind, Westland Hialeah Senior High School is equipped with the latest technology in every classroom. This technology allows our teachers to use varied methods of instructional delivery to address students with diverse learning styles. Furthermore, we are committed to providing our students with access to the technological instruments necessary to help them better understand their practical uses in our society. Westland Hialeah Senior High School will continue to expand its World Languages program to provide our students with the advantage of fluency in a second or third language. As world citizens, our students will be provided with opportunities to not only learn these languages but also to learn the historical, social and cultural contexts of the societies in which these languages are spoken. Furthermore, we want to provide students with opportunities for travel to these countries to empower them through experiential learning, cultural sensitivity and international expertise. As Miami continues to engage in more commerce around the world, we want to place our students in a position where their language skills and experiences will provide them with the marketable skills necessary to succeed in the current and future job market. As your principal, I look forward to continue assisting you in realizing your children’s goals and aspirations. I remain steadfast in my commitment to take Westland Hialeah Senior High School to great heights academically. Sincerely,

Guillermo Muñoz

Middle school students may earn credit only in those courses designated as "acceleration" courses as indicated above. Secondary students are also eligible to enroll in courses offered through the Miami-Dade Virtual School. A complete list of courses is available through FLVS,s web site at http://www.flvs.net or Miami-Dade Virtual School’s (M-DVS) web site at http://mdvs.dadeschools.net. Credit by Examination.

Students may earn credit for selected high school courses by taking the End-of-Course (EOC) assessment for the course and earning a score that indicates the student has attained a satisfactory score on a state EOC assessment or on a district-created standardized EOC. Students may obtain more information about any of these opportunities for acceleration from their school guidance counselors.

Florida Virtual School Option
While the initiative to use Florida Virtual (FLVS) classes district-wide originated with the class-size mandate, online learning was already common place in many students’ educational experiences. With the mass proliferation of online digital content as well as changes in students’ learning modalities, virtual education is continuing to expand and is a reality of the evolution of education. A 2008 study released by the Hoover Institute at Stanford University estimates that 50% of education courses will be delivered online by the year 2019. The advantages of virtual education include self-paced learning and access to course work not available in schools or not accessible due to scheduling conflicts. Additionally, virtual education provides students with a learning environment that closely resembles the 21st century workplace. In K-12 education, more than 70 percent of school districts in the United States currently offer at least one online course and at least two states have adopted policies that require high school students to take an online course to graduate. While Florida has yet to adopt such a policy, it was considered during the last legislative session and current trends such as computer-based end-of-course tests and legislation mandating full-time, K-12 virtual education are strong predictors that Florida may soon follow suit. Florida Virtual Course Offerings • The FLVS course list can be found at this link: http://www.flvs.net/areas/flvscourses/Pages/Course%20Catalog/CourseListing.aspx.  Schools may not limit core courses that are graduation requirements to online FLVS classes. For example, courses such as Government and Economics may be offered to students via Florida Virtual; however, face-to-face classes must also be offered.  Elective courses may be limited to online options.  Courses that will be provided online through Florida Virtual will be identified on subject selection forms.

HOMEWORK POLICY*
Regular, purposeful homework is an essential part of a student's education. Homework is an integral factor in fostering the academic achievement of students and in extending school activities into the home and the community. Regular homework provides opportunities for developmental practice, drill, the application of skills already learned, the development of independent study skills, enrichment activities, and self-discipline. Homework should provide reinforcement and extension of class instruction, and should serve as a basis for further study and preparation for future class assignments.

Student's Responsibilities 1. Completing assigned homework as directed and in the spirit in which it was assigned. 2. Returning homework to the teacher by the designated time. 3. Submitting homework assignments that reflect careful attention to detail and quality of work. 4. Devoting a minimum of 30 minutes each day to reading as an additional part of the homework assignment NOTE: Students can receive additional help through the Homework Helpers Program, which includes the Dial-A-Teacher program, at 305-995-1600, Monday through Thursday from 5:30 P.M. to 8:30 P.M., WLRN, Channel 17. Students may also access Miami-Dade County Public School’s web page at: http://www.dial-a-teacher.com. Parents' Responsibilities While it is understood that parents are not responsible for providing a great deal of assistance to their child in completing homework, there is still much that parents can do to promote good study habits. Parents' responsibilities include: 1. Providing an environment conducive to study. 2. Providing continued interest and concern for the child's successful performance in school, through, encouraging and supporting the child in his/her performance of homework assigned. 3. Indicating an interest in assignments and assisting, if possible, when requested by the child, but not to include performing the work for the child. 4. Supporting the school in regard to the child being assigned homework. 5. Requesting assignments for the child when short-term absences are involved. 6. Assuring that the child reads for a period of at least 30 minutes each day in addition to any other assigned homework.
