SIGNATURES

I understand the DHS Cambridge AICE Diploma program is a rigorous academic program for academically talented and motivated students. If accepted as a student, I agree to maintain good attendance and behavior and to strive for high academic achievement. I have read and understand the DHS Academic Honor Code and understand the potential ramifications of cheating and/or plagiarism. I also understand that I may be required to complete reading assignments during the summer. I also understand that some of the readings will be more mature and sensitive nature. These readings are assigned by the University of Cambridge and are non-negotiable. Students and parents must also understand the importance of computer access for AICE Academy students. Students must have access to a computer with Internet access and word processing capabilities either at home or in their community. Finally, all students should maintain a minimum of a “C” average in all courses, a 3.0 weighted GPA overall and pass the FSA in order to remain in the AICE program. I understand that if the above criterion is not maintained, I may be subject to dismissal from the AICE program.

Grade/Attendance and Behavior Policy


  1. Students must maintain an acceptable attendance and discipline record.




  1. Students’ overall GPA, individual course grades and discipline/attendance records will be reviewed first semester and a determination will be made as to whether the student needs to be placed on academic or behavioral probation. After the first grading period following the probation, removal from the program will be considered if progress has not been made.




  1. Acceptance and continuance in the AICE program is based upon a level 3 or higher on the FSA and passage of the Algebra I EOC (if Algebra I has been taken.)




  1. To ensure a safe and conducive learning environment, students are required to

follow the Volusia County Code of Conduct at all times.


  1. Students must comply with all Deltona High School behavior policies as well as

individual classroom rules and procedures.


  1. Students’ records will be reviewed from year to year to determine the continuance in AICE courses.

I am aware and agree to the Deltona High grade policy, behavior/discipline, and admissions procedures as stated above and assume all of the responsibilities as stated. I understand that any violations may result in dismissal from the Advanced International Certificate of Education Program.




Student Signature:

I hereby grant permission and consent for my son/daughter to enroll in the AICE Program at Deltona High School and agree to all terms of this contract. I understand by signing this form, I am granting permission for Deltona High School to review my student’s grades, standardized test scores, cumulative and disciplinary records periodically to determine eligibility.




Parent/Guardian Signature:




Statement of Commitment and Financial Responsibility
As a student in the University of Cambridge International Examinations – Advanced International Certificate of Education Program (AICE), I realize that I may be required to sit for examinations during or at the end of my 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade years. I further realize that some of the examination dates fall in May, June, and November and that the dates of these examinations are set by the University of Cambridge and cannot be changed or modified by Deltona High School.

I understand that I will be held financially responsible for the cost incurred in any University of Cambridge International Examinations to which I commit, but fail to take for any reason or requests to take a second time.


Name of Student (printed)
Signature of Student Date

As the parent of an AICE student, I understand that my child may be expected to sit for examinations during the months of May, June, and November as determined by the University of Cambridge. I further understand that my child and I will be held financially responsible for any University of Cambridge International Examination to which my son or daughter commits but fails to take for any reason or requests to take a second time.


Name of Parent (printed)
Signature of Parent Date

Film and Literature Permission Form

Please be aware that novels, plays and poetry collections used in IGCSE and AICE courses at Deltona High School are determined by Cambridge, not Deltona High School. In a given year, every student enrolled in the AICE program around the world is required to read the same “set texts”. Every book or play selected by Cambridge has literary merit, but on rare occasions a parent or student may object to a given literary work. Making accommodations in a non-AICE class is difficult but not impossible; however, AICE students have few options because they are tested only in those specific literary works that are designated “set texts” for a particular syllabus year. Please understand that being accepted into the AICE Program indicates that your child has demonstrated academic potential and intellectual maturity and should be able to handle the challenging texts set by the program.


In addition to literary works, we sometimes use videos to further enhance the student’s enjoyment and understanding of the literary work. These videos are used for instructional purposes only. Videos may not be rated PG. A list of literary works is provided with individual course syllabuses.
Please sign and return this form, giving your child permission to read and view literary materials that are integral to the AICE program.

My child,

(Please print name)

has my permission to read and view materials that are integral to the Cambridge International Examinations Program at Deltona High School.
