The Community Resource Program

Welcome to the CR Program.  Is this the semester that you can fit the class of your dreams into your schedule? If you would like to learn about a subject, come to the CR office and talk about how you can put together a CR.

CR Orientation Sessions  
Wednesday, Feb 4 -  Huron, lunch, Media Center Lab
Thursday, Feb 5 - CHS, 2:30 - in Media Center Lab 
Friday, Feb 6 -  Pioneer, early & late lunch, C231
Friday, Feb. 6.  CHS, lunch - in Media Center Lab  
Friday, Feb 6.  Skyline, lunch, location TBD

You will enter your first weekly summary in Moodle during the orientation.   

All CR students must complete a CR orientation.  If a student has previously taken a CR, he/she can complete a virtual orientation under the assignment section of Moodle.   
 2nd semester CR Deadline to apply: January 16, 2015

• However, there are still spots available in the following CR. Students can add this CR until drop/add because it is offered as an "in-building" CR.  It is past the deadline for all other CR applications.      

Advanced Skills in Psychology

This Winter Semester will be a continuation of our work from the Fall Term.  We will meet up with some of the theorists we discovered then and expand on their work.  We will explore some new territory.  We will read, discuss, meditate, and try out experimental and experiential methods.  Most importantly, once again the subject matter of the course is you and how you work seen through the perspectives provided by Psychology.

 All other CRs are in the process of being approved and will be on PowerSchool before the drop/add deadline.  If you would like to drop a traditional class before that, the counselors can access a CR Google Doc for confirmation of your CR approval.

What IS a CR?
A Community Resource (CR) class is....

  • A contracted learning experience taught by an “expert” member of the community.  The community expert who teaches the CR class must be a volunteer and cannot be paid for their services.
  • Awarding high school credit and a grade
  • Meeting either elective or compulsory graduation requirements
  • Monitored by certified AAPS teaching staff
  • Students meet with their volunteer instructor for 2 to 3 hours a week and work independently for another 2 to 3 hours a week for .5 credit or demonstrate mastery of the state standards
  • District wide common assessments may be required to grant credit in specific areas
What happens after I submit my CR application?
Once the completed paperwork is turned in to the CR office, we will contact the instructor and review the paperwork. If everything is in order, we send an approval email to all parties involved. If something about the course plan needs improvement, we will contact you about the issue. The student can begin working on the CR as soon as school starts.  The student will enter in Moodle what he/she has accomplished each week and keep all of his/her work to show the monitor at the marking periods.  The CR monitor (who is the AAPS teacher listed on PowerSchool) will contact the instructor for the grades and enter an overall grade in PowerSchool at the marking period.
We go over Moodle and all of the above topics at the orientation

The 4 components to receive credit for a CR class.
1.  Structured meetings between a student and qualified volunteer that follow a syllabus approved by AAPS staff.
2.  Quarterly documentation submitted to the CR monitor
3.  Weekly summaries must be entered on the AAPS Moodle (video).
4.  Common Assessments may be required for some classes.
