Scheduling Process for 2015-2016 School Year

As mentioned earlier this week, the Program of Studies is now available online. Students and parents can access the Program of Studies by visiting the school website, selecting the Guidance tab, and then the sub tab entitled "Program of Studies."

On Monday, 2/2, students will receive a Course Selection Planning Checklist in their period 1 Gold Day Class. The purpose of these Course Planning Checklists is for students to plan out in advance which courses they should be taking. Here are electronic copies of each form:

In the month of February, students will be doing the following:
  • Students should discuss the Program of Studies, including course selections for next year with parents and teachers.
  • Teachers will enter a recommendation for course placement next year based on the student’s current academic performance in their class. These recommendations will be entered into X2 by February 12th.
  • Students and parents will have an opportunity to override any teacher recommendations by completing the form on p. 82 of the Program of Studies. Overrides must be completed by the last day of the 2014-2015 school year.
  • Students will select the remainder of their courses (including electives and other graduation requirements) starting on Monday, February 23rd using the X2 portal.
If you have any questions, please see your child’s teacher or guidance counselor.
