Killian MS- Schedule Updates

Killian Counseling Department

Parents & Students,

First, we thank you for your patience and cooperation with the “waiting”. We have been working furiously on two master schedules for Killian and getting over 1000 schedules into Skyward, while registering new students, and balancing classes. We apologize if you have tried to contact us and we have not returned your calls or email promptly. This is many months of work condensed into the past two weeks for us. Now we need your help! There is a good chance that, in the “porting process”, there may be some coding errors. Please take time this weekend to check for errors. Schedules are now ready for viewing in Skyward. Please read the important information below regarding schedules first.

ACTION REQUIRED

  1. Log in to Skyward Family/ Student Access. Select Schedule on the left side of the screen. Then you will see a list of your courses and the order of class periods.


  1. Look to see that you have the following classes & make sure it is the appropriate GRADE LEVEL.

    1. ELA/RDG (2 classes)

    2. MATH,

    3. SCIENCE,

    4. SOCIAL STUDIES (6th- CONT WLD, 7th- TX HIST, 8th- US HIST)

    5. ELECTIVES (2 of them)-- It may not be your 1st or 2nd choice

    6. PE (PHYS ED, SPORTS (boy or girl), or SPORTS TENNIS)

    7. ADVISORY


Check that you have 9 scheduled courses on your schedule.

NOTES REGARDING SCHEDULES-- READ BEFORE REPORTING AN ERROR!

1. Your schedule may change between now and the second week of school so that we can balance classes. (we are trying to keep class sizes as small as possible). Please do not get too attached to it.


2. We are NOT making changes in electives & academic courses unless there is an error. It is too late to change your mind. We have limited teaching staff and limited seats in the classes and no room to move around.


3. Killian does not accept teacher requests.


4. Virtual Students may have different classes than they had before choosing Virtual Learning. In some cases we had to choose a class for you from a limited list of classes with limited seating. We did our best to give you the best option we had.

  • Courses not available include: Outdoor Trails, Bridges / Forensics, Band /Office Aides. You may have Career Explorations instead.
  • All Art and Spanish classes are full.
  • There are no ADVANCED fine arts classes in Virtual Learning. Your directors know what group you are in and will let you know when they will be teaching your group.


5. We have many “in person” students that have conflicts that will require some VERY tough decisions. Please prioritize what is important to you. You will have to make changes & compromises in elective or academic classes. If there is a conflict in your schedule (that we know about), you should receive an email by Sunday morning. Your counselor will be reaching out to you Monday or Tuesday to find out your choice.


6. NEW students may not have a schedule yet. This will be updated early next week. We are sorry for the delay.
