About PHS’s Homeroom
Pacific High School has designed a Lower Campus for 9th & 10th grade students and
an Upper Campus for 11th & 12th grade students. We believe in one period of daily
homeroom advisory. Teacher and students address concerns, celebrate accomplishments,
listen to guest speakers, and work independently. Every three weeks, the homeroom
teacher records a student's overall academic progress. Earning 5 credits every 3
weeks is the expected pace. Homeroom teachers determine the Credit Recovery Units
to be assigned. After Homeroom, students complete their 5 period academic day by
attending 4 periods of core academic classes via whole group instruction. Partial
credits are awarded if necessary. See a copy of our MASTERSCHEDULE <<here >> The
ability to earn credits after the instructional day are also explored, including
Credit Recovery Units, classes at Ventura College, ROP, Work Experience, Adult Education,
online learning, and Community Service projects. This is coordinated with their
counselor, as well. Parents are invited, welcomed, and urged to make frequent contact
with their student’s homeroom teacher and/or counselor.
Orientation and Transition
“Safe, High Performing Schools”
For students who struggle with the expectations of Pacific High School, a separate program has been established after school. This temporary intervention is designed to re-focus students and redirected them back into the morning program. Students are counseled and referred to the Lagoon. A Positive Behavioral Support Plan is also devised prior to enrollment.
