Course Selection

Students will soon be meeting one on one with their counselor to finalize their course requests for next school year.  To help make the best decisions regarding coursework, please refer to:
 
 
Parents can assist by sharing their own career path and encouraging students to talk to other family members or professionals about their career paths. In addition, research is imperative because the world of work is constantly changing and our students will need the resources to help them design their own individual path.  During the month of May, please review course selections with your student.

March & April 2019  Students and parents are able to view future courses entered into Skyward by looking in the Graduation Requirements screen.  This is the time when the Master Schedule is planned and no requests for changes can be made. 
 
May 1-22, 2019 Students who have changed their minds about courses for next year may request to see their counselor.  Every effort will be made to make the requested changes if there are seats available. It is very important to make wise and thoughtful choices in January so that the district can plan enough seats in requested courses. If goals and interests change, this is the final time to meet with their counselor to discuss possible changes.
