Marna, is there a way for parents not here tonight to view your info?
Jen Webb
55:19
All of tonights slides will be posted on the JAGC site along with the recording of tonight’s session.
Marna Messer-Jeffco Public Schools
55:46
Yes. The website I showed at the end to Jeffco has the key information. The shared slides will help as well.

Honors, AP, and IB classes are “weighted classes” in Jeffco. This means they appear differently on the student transcript. An “A:"A “B” in an AP/IB class is weighted the same and an “A” in a non-AP/IB class.
Jen Webb
01:02:18
The end of that should read: An A is worth 5 points in a weighted class, a B is worth 4 points, so a “B” in an Honors/AP/IB class is weighted the same as an “A” in another course.

Don’t forget Jeffco’s GT Family Learning Night (we are now VIRTUAL) on January 26th from 6-8pm. https://www.jeffcopublicschools.org/cms/One.aspx?portalId=627965&pageId=16598235

Question from a parent: how much AP should I take?
JAGC

Remember that Jeffco now allows middle school students to get high school credit for world languages and math.
Amy Masching
01:22:08
Does the high school credit only apply for 8th graders, or 7th graders too? (My daughter is taking algebra in 7th.)
Amy Masching
01:22:56
Thank you!
Luka Jessup

Does JVA give high school credits?

Can you please list the differences between concurrent enrollment and dual enrollment?
Amy Masching
01:28:18
Thank you for all of this information! With all of these considerations, can you speak a little bit to how we should even begin to decide on a high school (especially for gifted kids)?
JAGC
01:30:05
For kids that may need a little time to be ready for college, is it better to apply and defer, take a gap year completely, take classes at community college? Any insight would be helpful
Lace Grills

What do Jeffco schools do when a kid maxes out the highest level of a subject that that their high school offers, well before graduation?
Marna Messer-Jeffco Public Schools
01:34:04
This usually happens in math. We would offer additional opportunities when this happens.
