Additionally, there are a few courses that will experience a course name change for the 2013-2014 academic year, without any changes to curriculum or textbook materials.  They are as follows:

Honors Biology 2 will become Honors Anatomy and Physiology. This course name change is recommended to provide more detail about the actual course content on a transcript that is reviewed by higher education institutions.

Reading and Writing Workshop, where different content is taught during the fall and spring courses, will be split into two separate course names to prevent students from taking the same semester content twice.  The new course names will be Reading and Writing Workshop 1 and Reading and Writing Workshop 2.
