Students may apply for CSF beginning Spring semester of freshman year.
Membership granted for a certain semester is based on the previous semester grades.
Any membership based on freshman year grades grants the student "Associate Member status." These semesters of membership do not count towards Gold Seal status.
Explanation for the use of summer school courses taken from the CSF Handbook:
"Summer school courses may only be used in the computation of semester membership eligibility only if the student has not taken sufficient List I and List II courses during the previous semester." Article IV, Section 13
"A student must have taken a minimum of 3 courses from Lists I and II; at least 2 of the 3 courses must be from List I" Article IV, Section 7
Gold Seal Bearer Membership requires 4 semesters of membership, starting with membership based on sophomore grades (Spring Semester of 10th grade). One semester of membership must be during senior year.
You may either stop by during support, nutrition, or lunch (not during class time) to view your membership records or send Mr. Busby an email requesting the information.
GOLD SEAL BEARER
An Agoura High School Gold Seal Bearer receives a CSF Gold Seal on his/her diploma, a CSF gold pin, recognition at the Senior Awards Assembly and the honor indicated in the Graduation Program.
To qualify as a Gold Seal Bearer you must have been a member of CSF for four or more semesters beginning with sophomore spring semester membership, and one or more of these semesters of membership must occur during 12th grade.
Freshman spring and sophomore fall memberships do not count towards Gold Seal Bearer, as they are based on freshman grades.
ADDITIONAL AWARDS AND RECOGNITION(NEW FOR 2013!)
To attend the annual Senior CSF dinner and receive special recognition at graduation (the wearing of the gold cord on your robe and your name announced during the program) you must complete and receive credit for 25 hours or more of community service during your senior year in addition to meeting the requirements for a Gold Seal Bearer. To clarify that is 10 hours in addition to the 15 hours of service learning required for graduation. All 25 hours must be documented on the community service form.
The community service form can be downloaded on the web site and MUST be turned in to Mr. Busby in D5, NO LATER THAN Friday, May 10th, 2013 for consideration.
