A CCA report breaks down the CCA’s a given student has completed in each school year. The “required” CCA assignments
are listed in each grade (9th through 12th) and a “Y” is listed next to that individual class requirement if the student has meet
the CCA requirement in the “Is complete?” section. If nothing is listed in this section the student still needs to meet that
requirement in that given school year.
In the sample above, this current 10th grade student has completed all the necessary CCA requirements in 9th grade and
still needs to complete the PE/Health and Elective requirement in the 10th grade.
All CCA’s completed in each subject area are listed on the far right hand side of the report to ensure accuracy.
If anyone has any trouble reading the report don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Gormley’s office for clarification.
9. What if a student doesn’t have any electives in their school schedule in a given school year?
If a student does not have any Elective courses scheduled in a given school year they can use an extra “core” course
elective to meet the requirement. For example: if a student is taking 2 English courses they could use semester 1
English CCA to meet the English requirement and the semester 2 English CCA to meet the Elective requirement.
10. TRUE or FALSE: I should hang on to all my CCA assignments in an organized binder.
True. Unfortunately input errors do happen. It is extremely helpful to have a graded copy of the assignment as proof of
proficiency in a particular CCA assignment. Mr. Gormley will be able to correct the error immediately with visual
proof of proficiency.
I have a sample binder in my office. Students at any time are welcomed to come to my office to view the sample binder
and obtain advice on how to create one.
11. TRUE or FALSE: I can wait until senior year to complete all my CCA assignments.
False. Any CCA assignments that are not proficient in a given school year must be remediated until a student reaches
proficiency on that assignment. You can not use CCA assignments the follow school year to “make-up” non-proficient
assignments from the previous school year.
12. How do I remediate a non-proficient CCA assignment?
If a student receives a 69 or below on a given CCA assignment they have 2 weeks after the graded assignment is handed
back to the student to work with the teacher in that particular class.
After the 2 week window students should report to CCA remediation sessions Tuesday and Thursday after school at
designated times during the school year.
Mr. Gormley will notify students and parents about remediation sessions via email through Aspen email accounts. Reminders
will also be made in school during advisory morning annoucements and on all TV monitors during the school day.
13. If I complete more CCA’s in a given year than needed can I carry those CCA’s over to my next school year?
Example: If I complete 2 English CCA’s in my junior year; could I use one of those English CCA assignments
in my senior year?
14. NO. There are a minimum amount of CCA assignments that need to be completed each year. CCA assignments can’t
be used for any future school years. This graduation requirement must be relevant in all 4 years of a student’s high
school education. Please see the answer to question #6 above for minimum anchors completed in each school year.
15. Why are there no CCA requirements or assignments listed for a grade column on my child's report?
Students grade columns will also be blank for any year in which a student did not attend or were enrolled at North Kingstown
High School. For example: If a student transferred in to North Kingstown High School during their 10th grade year the
9th CCA columns on this student's report will be blank.
Another example would be if a student took "Emerging Technologies" during the 10th grade year a "blank" will appear in
the 9th grade CCA column. Mr. Gormley will manually adjust this in his records as Aspen will not recognize the "Y" because
the student took the class in a different year than grade 9. However, I list of all proficient CCA assignments can always be
seen at the far right hand side of the report under "List of entries that met criteria".
There are sometimes special circumstances that can dictate changes to the above requirements.Please inform
Mr. Gormley of any special student information so he can develop a plan to help ensure the student completes the
CCA graduation requirement.
