Each year, beginning in the second semester, students in Grades 8-11 will begin the course registration process during which they will select their classes for the following year.
The Course Registration Procedure is as follows:
Students will be given a copy of the Program of Studies and a Teacher Recommendation form.
For all academic and leveled subject areas, students must obtain their current teacher's recommendation for the course/level they should request for the following year. If a student or their parent disagrees with the teacher's recommendation, they must discuss this with the teacher. Counselors are not allowed to override a teacher's recommendation unless directed to do so by an administrator.
After students have obtained all of the necessary teacher recommendations, they will be allowed to enter their course requests on-line using PowerSchool. Students and parents will be able to view their course requests on-line for a few weeks after they have been entered.
When all student requests have been entered, teachers will be given rosters of student requests for each course and will review the rosters to ensure that students have requested he correct courses/levels.
Once the master schedule has been finalized and counselors have worked with individual student schedules, final class rosters will be given to teachers for a final review.
Students will not have access to view their schedules until they are mailed home over the summer. At that time, students who want to make any changes to their schedule will have the opportunity to meet with their counselor before the beginning of the school year.
