Updated Middle School Elective Choices

After our initial elective information was shared with families we received feedback about some of the limits of the new elective structure. We appreciate our partnership with parents and families and their willingness to share their thoughts with us. Based on some of the feedback and suggestions received from parents, we have made a slight modification to the initial elective structure. This will allow some additional options for our scholars, especially those who would like to take band or NCVPS courses.

In light of this change, a new elective request form has been created. Please re-submit the elective form based on this new information.

You can make your selections using the elective selection form. Please complete the form once for each middle school scholar. To go to the form, type the following URL into your browser:
