Sophomore Scheduling Information

Pre-Scheduling Presentation

This week I visited all of the 9th grade Science classes to go over some pre-scheduling information with your student. We looked at the ICAP (Individual Career & Academic Planner) and talked about graduation requirements and what core courses would be required for sophomore year. I have shared that presentation with all of my students. If you would like to view the presentation, please click here. Students have access to their ICAP in their Google Drive.

What happens next?

Choosing classes for next year

I will be going into the English classes next week (Jan 29 - Feb 2) to work with your student as they choose their courses for next week. After I meet with their English class, they will be bringing home a Student Planning Guide, a copy of their current transcript, a pre-enrollment form, and instructions on how to enter their schedule request into SIS. Students will begin collecting signatures from their teachers on their enrollment form and these forms will be due on February 7th.

If you would like to look over the Student Planning Guide before your student brings it home, the electronic version is available here.

New schedule change policy

From the Student Planning Guide:

"Due to the amount of planning and coordination that goes into making the master schedule based on student course requests, and staffing availability, schedule changes will not be permitted. Students who have chosen to not turn in scheduling paperwork by the required date are automatically scheduled by their counselor and no schedule changes will be permitted. Certain changes will only be made on a case by case basis and only after consulting with the student's counselor then referred to an administrator before it is determined that the change is necessary."

Please take some time to go over the scheduling information with your student next week when they bring home the materials. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
