FAFSA REQUIRMENT FOR GRADUATING SENIORS
The 2023-2024 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opened on October 01 FOR SENIORS ONLY. Completing the FAFSA or submitting a formal opt out form is a Texas state graduation requirement. You can find out more on the CHS Counseling website or at https://tea.texas.gov/.../colle.../financial-aid-requirement When filling out, students will enter Champion High School as their current high school, and we will receive a notification they are complete. If you choose to do an opt out form, please submit to the counseling office.
Course Selection for the 2023-2024 School Year kick off with our annual Choice Days on January 31 & February 01. Teachers will be speaking with all students about what courses come next in their content areas and which might be the right fit for each student. Please check your email for a letter with the Choice Day specifics. We are asking students to make sure they are able to login to their Chocies360 account before counselors start visiting English classrooms for course selection in February. All students have access to a Choices 360 account. Their username is their complete BISD email (firstMLfirstname.lastname@example.org). Each student chose his/her own password. Please follow the “forgot your password” link if you have trouble accessing your account.
Many seniors are inquiring about taking the TSI on campus to fulfill their college TSI requirement. We will be offering an opportunity to both Juniors (for CCMR completion) and seniors to take the TSI after spring break. You can also exempt from taking the TSI if you score high enough on an ACT or SAT. Juniors you will be taking the SAT on campus in March. Seniors: even if you did not use your SAT scores for admissions, you can send them in now to fulfill your college TSI requirement. Reach out to your counselor if you have questions.
If you are interested in taking dual credit next year, your application should already be submitted. TSI testing for eligibility will take place next week during the school day. Please make sure you have registered through the Dual Credit Google Classroom and have paid on RevTrack.
The Whole Child
This 9 Weeks Counselors will be focusing on the skill Decision-Making with students. Decision Making is a person’s approach to problem solving, learning from experience, and using values to guide behavior and except responsibility. Counselors will help students process decision making through our course selection activities. Teachers will be reinforcing this skill during our Charger Chats every Monday morning.
