Online classes are generally enrichment courses, and may not be taken to replace any DLS requirement unless they are taken to REMEDIATE a grade previously earned at DLS.
No grade earned in an online course is ever factored into the DLS GPA.
All students who participate in an online course must participate in an orientation meeting with Mr. Van Bomel, and will adhere to a regular schedule to check in with him on their progress in the course.
In many cases, additional fees will apply to cover the cost of courses. Registration for these courses would be through Mr. Van Bomel.
Students who wish to know if they should make up a “D” grade should check with their College Counselor first.
As stated in the Student Handbook, Academic Regulations and Procedures: A student must take all required courses during the academic year. Summer school classes are primarily for remediation. Please note that coursework taken at any site (including online options) other than the De La Salle campus must receive prior written approval from the Director of Academic Services (Ms. Lillian Dickson). Only approved coursework will appear on a student’s transcript.
Four-Year colleges will not accept D grades in core courses, (English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and World Languages). These grades may also be made up in summer school. Should a student wish to repeat a course in order to meet prerequisites for the next level and/or to meet college entrance requirements, he must repeat the course in summer school.
A grade earned in a repeated course that was not failed, (i.e. where the original grade was a “D”), is posted on the transcript and is used for pre-requisites consideration. The new grade is not included in the calculation of the cumulative DLS GPA. Colleges and universities typically consider the new grade received for the repeated course in admissions and placement reviews.
Please contact Mr. Donald Van Bomel at 925-288-8160 for more information about online options and to remediate “D’s”.
This course will introduce students to the theory of music, providing them with the skills needed to read and write music notation, as well as to understand, analyze, and listen informedly. It will cover material such as pitches, scales, intervals, clefs, rhythm, form, meter, phrases, ear training, harmony and basic composition techniques. The course will also be useful to experienced musicians with or without music notation skills who wish to improve overall musicianship. No previous musical experience is necessary. This is a full year course.
