    Remote Learning Grading Policies | School Year 20-21

    Additional grading policies were put into place at the start of 2nd Quarter with the purpose to ease student's stress about grades during online remote learning. Late work is accepted by all teachers with no penalties. All missing assignments are entered as 50% in the grade book (does not apply to missing tests/quizzes). 
    Questions? Email your teacher and read more about BHS grading policies and the district grading policy.

    Ballard High School Course Catalog 21-22 Introduction

    Letter From Principal Wynkoop

    This Course Catalog is an important part of actualizing the statement above. Ballard High School is a comprehensive school with a wide variety of classes and programs, and we work to offer courses that will engage and motivate students. Challenging all students academically, developing strong relationships and building community for all our students creates an atmosphere that allows students to grow and mature. We encourage all students to challenge themselves by enrolling in Advanced Placement, College in the High Schools or other challenging classes that will help prepare them for the rigors of college and career, while maintaining a healthy school-life balance.

    The purpose of this catalog is to familiarize students and parents with information about school procedures, curriculum, graduation requirements, and post-secondary planning. While this catalog is intended to be definitive, elective courses are offered based on student sign-up and staffing availability. Therefore, it is important to list alternate requests when registering in case your first choice is not available. I hope that you use this catalog as a planning guide throughout your four years at Ballard. ~ Keven Wynkoop, Principal
