AP/Dual Enrollment Course Options for 2020-2021
To learn more about the AP/Dual Enrollment program, attend the AP/Dual Enrollment Credit Assurance Parent Interest Meeting via Zoom on Thursday, May 14, 2020 at 5 pm. Please email Tyra Pickens for the Zoom meeting ID link and password. AP, dual enrollment, and blended classes in US History, World History, Biology, and English Language may be available at New Century next year depending on the number of interested students. Students must get superintendent approval to take more than one dual enrollment core class during a school year. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Manuel.
The New Century PTSA board wishes all the students, teachers and families safety and good health during these unusual times. It is our highest priority that everyone remains healthy while continuing to finish out the school year.
The PTSA is required to complete the year by nominating, voting and implementing a new 2020/21 PTSA executive board. We currently have several board positions open which include hospitality and membership - if you are interested in serving on next year’s board please email Allison Kowalczyk. The New Century board is an excellent way to stay informed about the school and the district, while serving to bring excellent programs to the school.
LAPTOP AND MATERIAL RETURN
At this time, schools are not allowed to collect materials including laptops and textbooks from students. As soon as the Stay at Home order is relaxed, we will notify you of how items can be returned to the school. Thank you for your patience.
MAIN OFFICE HOURS
We are required to limit the number of people in each school building at this time. Email is the best way to reach all of us. We will do our best to address all your questions and concerns in a timely manner while keeping the health and well-being of our employees in mind.
The Balfour plant is considered a nonessential business and is currently closed. We will provide an update as soon as they are able to reopen and provide an estimated date for our yearbooks to arrive.
