  • Carnegie Unit Information 


    As our 8th grade students prepare for their exciting journey to high school, we are happy to share information on Carnegie Units! If your child is currently enrolled in one or more of the high school courses offered at Five Forks Middle School, they have the option to accept or decline a Carnegie Unit Credit. The Carnegie Unit will go onto your child’s high school transcript and your student will receive high school credit for successfully completing this course. 

    When determining whether or not to take the Carnegie Unit for a course, it is important to consider teacher recommendations for high school courses given earlier this semester, specifically in the area of Mathematics. For example, if your child was recommended for Algebra I in high school, you should NOT elect to take the Carnegie Unit Credit, as this decision will lock your child in a specified mathematics track during all four years of high school. 

    A copy of the FFMS Informational Parent Letter as well as the Carnegie Unit Credit Decision Form have been sent to you through School Messenger as well as mailed to your home. Prior to making any decisions, it is IMPERATIVE that you watch this VERY INFORMATIVE VIDEO from Brookwood:  Carnegie Unit Video

    Once you have received and reviewed, please complete and return the Carnegie Unit Credit Decision Form no later than Friday, May 22, 2020. The informational letter identifies three methods in which you may submit this form. Upon submission of this form, the decision is finalized, and if the form is not returned, the student will not receive the Carnegie Unit Credit for high school.
