QHS Hoping to Add New Classes

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Tonight, representatives from Quincy High School will propose the addition of two senior level classes to the Quincy School Board Curriculum Committee. 

The two proposed classes are Abnormal Psychology and AP 2-D Art. They would be available at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year to seniors.

Principal Danielle Edgar says the classes are being considered because the two teachers of these subjects made the suggestion to add them - and after looking into it - they discovered there was enough student interest.

Edgar says currently, some students (namely in art) repeat their classes as electives simply to continue the experience. She says this would give those students the opportunity to continue and grow their skills. Psychology teacher Ron Bridal says many of his students are also interested in pursuing these subjects as careers.

Edgar says there would be no additional staff or accommodations made for these classes - except for approximately $5500 in Abnormal Psychology textbooks. She says the art class would be COllege Board approved, so students could participate in the AP testing.

Members of the Curriculum Committee seemed pleased with the suggestions, and are recommending it to the full Quincy School Board for approval.
