Our course outlines are provided to parents at the beginning of the school year. They describe the courses a student in the grade will enroll in, what units will be covered, how the assessments will be given, IB aims and objectives, and DCPS standards. Each outline was developed by Deal teachers. In some cases, courses and teams may provide additional information to the students and parents, either online or in paper form, that describe particular grading practices, team expectations, and other important policies. These outlines are revised each year (and on occasion during the school year), so they should be seen as a snapshot of the courses.

We will have assignments all the way up to the end of the school year, so now is the time to get a read on what is coming up, where your student needs support, and how they can remain attentive going into these last weeks...[read more]
