Scheduling  and Course Selection
The scheduling and course selection process involves several steps including disseminating information to students, collecting teacher recommendations, reviewing records with students, selecting electives and submitting course requests.  To facilitate this process each spring, the following events take place:
  1. Scheduling Assemblies - Assemblies will be held for each class in the spring, typically in March.
  2. Course Catalog - Course Catalogs are mailed home and made available on the web site.   Parents and guardians are encouraged to review the course catalog with their children and assist them in selecting courses that will help them meet requirements for graduation, as well as support attainment of their post-secondary goals.
  3. Teacher Recommendations - Each student will receive a "Course Recommendations" card  on which to record teacher recommendations for next year's classes and choose electives they are interested in taking.
  4. Student Scheduling - Students will be given an appointment time to meet individually with counselors, typically in April.  The schedule will be given to the students in their GSH and will be posted in many areas of the school including the TV monitor near the Nurses office and on the window of the counseling office. 
  5. Course Selection Verification - After all students have met with their counselors, they will receive a course verification list to assure that the proper courses are entered in the system to bring home.
  6. Master Schedule Design - The master schedule for the entire high school building will be designed based upon student course requests.  This takes place during the summer.
  7. Schedules Mailed - In late August, after final master schedule adjustments and summer school results have been entered, schedules for sophomores, juniors and seniors will be mailed home.  Incoming freshman receive schedules at Parent Orientation the week before the new school year begins.
