Course Selection Process for 2019-2020

Believe it or not, it is time for students to make course selections for the 2019-20 academic year.  This is an important process because every decision regarding the courses that will be scheduled for 2019-20 are based on the selections of your children.  Parents need to understand the process and timelines so here is a brief overview:

Feb 26 – March 1 – Course Selection Assemblies in grades 9 – 11 will be held in VIP by grade level.  Students will receive an overview of the process and the deadlines.

Friday March 8 – Course Selection Fair:  Students will be given time to discuss courses with the teachers who currently teach the courses to find out more about the expected content, workload, and assessment in all subject areas.  This will be in the Gym during an extended VIP. Students will receive their Course Selection forms including recommendations for AP / Pre-AP courses from their current teachers.

March 1 – 21 – Conversations in VIP with teacher/advisors to discuss courses and opportunities

March 1 – 21 – Individual appointments with Counselors (if required) to discuss programs and pathways.  This includes Guidance and College Counselors. Students need to make appointments if they need assistance with choosing courses to meet graduation requirements and prepare them for college admissions.  

March 21 – Course Selection Forms DUE to HS Office – These MUST be signed by parents to indicate approval of the courses selected (with alternates).  
Note:  Student requests cannot be guaranteed – that is why we ask for alternates for elective courses.  We try to accommodate all requests but it cannot be guaranteed.

The Academic Program Guide outlining all the courses available, complete with NEW flow charts to show recommended pathways in each department will be online this week.  Parents are strongly encouraged to review this important document with their children to ensure that they know the courses available, the graduation requirements and the pathways for various courses and subjects.  

As always, if you have any questions about this process or would like to be involved in discussions with your child and their Counselor(s), please contact the High School Office or your child’s Counselor directly.
