Course Requesting SY 2021-2022
It is course requesting time for the next school year. Over the next couple of weeks students will be selecting courses and alternate options for next year. We need you to review class options and be prepared to select courses.
The courses you request, electives and alternates will determine your schedule next year.
Please take time to look at options, what is required, and be purposeful in your choices. Changes may not be possible in the fall.
Please review the dates below for your grade level. On the first date, you will meet with your mentor to review the requesting process, course requesting worksheet, and resources. The second date is when counselors will answer your questions and help you to complete the requesting process in Class Choice for next year’s classes. Your attendance is important!
