 We changed our courses this year. The freshman now take earth science,
then sophomores take biology, and Juniors take either chemistry,
physics, or intro to physics and chemistry.

Subject: [KACT] earth and space science

I am interested in how other districts address the KSDE graduation
requirement for 3 credits of science, specifically the requirement for
earth and space science concepts.  I copied the sentence below directly
from the KSBE regulations for graduation requirements:


"three units of science, which shall include physical, biological, and
earth and space science concepts and which shall include at least one
unit as a laboratory course"


Do you offer an earth science course?  If so, at what level?  If not,
where do you cover the above requirement?  At Maize, we have Geoscience
which is a district graduation requirement and is offered as our
freshman science course.  What do the rest of you do?  


Any input would be appreciated!  Hope you all are having a great year!
