Eagle Valley High School

Eagle Valley High School is a 4-year comprehensive high school accredited with distinction by the Colorado Department of Education. It holds membership in the Colorado Council of High School/College Relations.

Students experience challenging academics, a large variety of athletics, fun activities and social events, and a strong sense of community as an Eagle Valley Devil. With two former college mascots as Administrators, school spirit runs high and students strive to excel and represent their school with pride.

With both academic and technical opportunities of enrichment, graduating Devils are prepared to follow their dreams to the college or technical school of their choice.

Parents are welcome and active supporters of our school and their children, rounding out our full community of learners, parents and educators.

Sixty staff members: forty one teachers, two counselors, and three administrators.

2016-17 Academic Planning

This Academic Planning Guide was prepared to assist parents and students with the enrollment process and describes all the comprehensive course offerings at Eagle Valley High School for the school year. A description of each subject has been written to explain the basic content of each course.  The courses listed in this handbook are tentative. Courses can only be offered if there is sufficient student enrollment. Course offerings and the number of times a course is offered each school year are determined by the number of students that register for that class.

We recognize that individual needs, interests, abilities, and objectives differ. We urge each student to develop a four year plan considering these. This plan is tentative and may be altered to coincide with changing needs and objectives. The total number of credits that can be acquired in a school year is 8 (based on a 8-period day with 0.5 credits per period for each semester.)

EVHS has developed some sample outlines of what courses to take in order to best prepare for post-secondary opportunities. These are suggested paths based on the Colorado Career Cluster Model. We want to provide guidance and suggestions for how our courses align with the career clusters of Business Administration, Agriculture Natural Resources, STEM/Arts/Design, Skilled & Technical Trades, Health/Public Safety, and Hospitality & Human Services. Following these suggested course pathways is intended to give students a head start of working towards a career field where they have interests. This includes gaining access to Colorado Mountain College courses and internships that would be featured in the senior year.

Grading and ranking

Grades are given on a letter scale: A, B, C, D, and F. AP and Dual Enrollment classes are weighted by 1.0. GPA is calculated using only semester grades to include all coursework. Class rankings are based on weighted cumulative GPA.

B: 80-89     3.0    4.0  Above Average
C: 70-79      2.0    3.0  Average
D: 60-69      1.0    1.0  Below Average
F: below 60 0.0   0.0  Failing

P = Passing Credit earned/not included in GPA. WP = Passing at withdrawal/not included in GPA. WF = Failing at withdrawal/F in GPA. NG = No grade given/not included in GPA. NC = No credit given.

With approval students may retake a course for which they have failed or received a D. The new grade becomes the official grade on the transcript. The previous grade appears as an NC for No credit.

Graduation Information

The end is in sight for the Class of 2016.  Hopefully everyone is excited about this momentous occasion and the culmination of so many years of hard work and effort.  We have shared all of this with the Class of 2016 in various ways at school, including at a class meeting today, but we want to keep parents in the loop as well.

 Senior Final Exams:  Wednesday, May 11th (Periods 1-3) & Thursday, May 12th (Periods 4-7)

  • Each course at EVHS is expected to give a comprehensive final exam.  For the Seniors their exams will include coursework up until these dates.

 Senior Checkout Day:  Friday, May 13th

  • Seniors are required to attend all their scheduled classes to complete checkout.  Teachers will confirm receipt of classroom materials and completion of coursework.
  • During passing periods, off-periods, lunch, and after school Seniors will also get signatures confirming that they are clear of any other fines or other outstanding requirements for graduation. (examples: athletic director, librarian, counselors, registrar, and principal).
  • Students will have a deadline of 72 hours before graduation ceremonies to confirm they are have met all of the criteria to graduate.  This is primarily true of online classes.  EVHS has no oversight or responsibility for the completion of online classes.  If students cannot produce a transcript grade showing they have completed a required course for graduation at least 72 hours prior to the ceremony, they will not be allowed to participate.
  • Students who are early graduates will need to complete this process in the fall when they leave.

 Required Graduation Rehearsal:  Wednesday, May 18th @ 8:00am in the EVHS gymnasium

  • ALL Seniors are REQUIRED to attend this MANDATORY rehearsal. 
  • Anyone not in attendance will not be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony.
  • Students should expect to be there until approximately 11:30am.
  • Work, family issues, or other conflicts need to be resolved prior to this date as they will not be considered valid reasons for missing the rehearsal.

 Senior Honors Night:  Tuesday, May 17th @ 6:30pm in the EVHS Auditorium

(Note, this is a change in date from original communication)

  • Awards, scholarships, cords and honors presented to Seniors
  • Seniors will be invited who are receiving recognitions; all others are welcomed to attend.

 Senior Banquet Night:  Wednesday, May 18th @ 6:30pm in the EVHS Cafeteria

  • Desert Bar that is FREE for all Seniors, parents, and friends.
  • Senior musical performances, guest speakers, Most Likely To Awards, Senior Class Video, and other parts will be celebrated with the Senior Class.

 Graduation Ceremony:  Saturday, May 21st @ 9:00am at Hot Stuff Stadium

  • Graduates needing makeup pictures in their caps and gowns should report at 7:30 am.
  • ALL graduates need to report by 8:00am in the EVHS gymnasium.  The early reporting time for Seniors is to accommodate taking a class picture and getting lined up before the ceremony.

 Project Graduation:  TBD

  • During the week of graduation there will be a safe, fun, and final event for the Senior Class to enjoy.  This event is completely organized by parents outside of the school or its staff.

 Graduation Robes:  DON’T forget to order your cap and gown.  You can’t graduate without the proper attire!  Caps and Gowns will be delivered in April during lunch.  Please contact Herff Jones directly with questions.  Call: 970-663-2668 or Online: www.uniquerecognition.com 

  • Wednesday, March 9th (Cap and Gown Pictures).
  • If you miss this date you will have to do it the morning of graduation at 7:30am.

 Dress Etiquette:  For the Senior Honors Night and Graduation Ceremony it is expected that students dress appropriately for these time honored and significant community events.  “Business casual” would be the minimum expectation for student attire.

  • Men:  khakis, trousers, collared shirts, button-down shirts, dress shoes.
  • Women:  khakis, trousers, dresses, skirts, blouses, sweaters, dress shoes.
  • What not to wear:  hats, t-shirts, jeans, shorts, tennis shoes, flip-flops.
  • Students are NOT allowed to adorn their caps/gowns with any personalized items.  The only thing that can be shown as decorations are the cords provided by EVHS to honor graduates.  Anyone that has altered their gown in a manner that highlights or makes it different from others will NOT be allowed to walk or participate in the Graduation ceremonies.

 Inclement Weather:  In the event of significant inclement weather, we will postpone the ceremony in 1 hour increments until we see the weather clear.  We will announce this postponement 30 min prior to the ceremony.  Please check our website and FaceBook for updates.  Thank you for your understanding and support of this amazing event
