Placement for the morning programs at Foothill includes two programs designed to meet the particular needs of students. They are:

  1. The “Extended Core” program is for those students with fewest credits, poorest attendance, most behavioral issues and least motivation. The Extended Core includes four teachers working in related groupings throughout the day, fullyresponsible for those 80+ students. This four period-a-day program allows the students to earn four classes of credit per semester (20 credits).
  2. The “Transition” program is for students with greater motivation, credits, attendance. The Transition program includes nine teachers with each student enrolled in four classes, which meet specific graduation requirements in English, math, science or social studies. This four-period-a-day program allows the student to earn four classes of credit per semester (20 credits). These 60+students will be expected to earn additional credits towards a timely graduation through one or more of the following:
    • completion of course agreements (contracts)
    • completion of their two Family Learning Center Early Childhood Development classes
    • enrollment and completion of a CCOC vocational training class
    • enrollment and completion of Adult Ed concurrent enrollment classes on campus
    • enrollment and completion of community college courses
