Technology Test for Incoming Freshmen Coming From NON-JCPS Middle Schools:  There are 3 dates during the summer that non-JCPS students can take the 8th grade technology test.  You must call the number below and schedule the test for one of those dates.  The test will NOT be at Ballard.  Students who pass the test will have met the technology proficiency graduation requirement and will not have to take a technology class in high school (although they still can).  The dates are June 22, July 10th, OR July 24th.  You must call 485-3010 and leave your email address on the voicemail.  They will contact you with further instructions.

Summer School for PE/Health or Visual Art:  Forms are available under the documents and resources tab for anyone wanting to take PE/Health or Visual Art during the summer.

Current Ballard Students:  Finish the year out STRONG!  You want to have the best GPA you can possibly have at the end of each semester.   If you anticipate failing a required class, talk to your teacher about credit recovery options.  If you wind up failing a course and credit recovery is not possible, contact your counselor about JCPS Summer School or eSchool options.
