Berkeley (cal.) Public School Department—Lower High Schools Course.1'
1 In effect January, 1910,
2 The 80 minutes of the music course are divided into two 25-minute recitation periods and one 30-minute chorus period.
1. The periods are 40 minutes long. In those subjects which require preparation outside the recitation period, five periods per week for a year constitute a course, for which one credit is given. In other subjects, five double periods per week are required for the full credit. When single periods are devoted to such subjects, one-half credit only is given.
2. A grammar-school diploma is Issued when a pupil has finished the required seventh and eighth grade course.
3. Any one of the optional subjects taught in the school may be substituted for onehalf of the required work in English.
4. Pupils who complete any course in addition to the amount required for a grammarschool diploma will be allowed credit for such work toward graduation from the high school.
5. To enter the upper high school, a pupil must have secured a grammar-school diploma and at least three high-school credits. These credits must represent a full year's work in each subject and not an addition of half credits. Exceptions to this rule can be made only in special cases upon the joint recommendation of the principals of the two schools concerned.
6. For special Instruction in voice culture, piano, violin, drawing, and painting onehalf of a high-school credit may be given in each of the seventh and eighth grades; one
high-school credit in the ninth grade, provided that application for such credit be made during the first two weeks of a term, and that evidence of sufficient progress be shown at its close. All work of this character, for which credit is desired, shall be under the inspection of the supervisors of music and drawing. Said credit will count toward highschool graduation, but not toward university matriculation.
7. No class will be organized or maintained unless at the beginning of the term it numbers 20 or more pupils; provided, that a course which is a continuance of one formerly begun may be maintained if it numbers 15 or more pupils, and provided that no class shall be suspended before the year's work is completed unless the subject is being given at another intermediate school in the city.
