Academic Year 2020-21 is Coming Soon!

Believe it or not, we’re already gearing up for the 2020-21 academic year! You should begin seeing announcements on our website for events held during the school day and evenings regarding course selections, registration, and for welcoming our incoming ninth graders, the Class of 2024!

First up is the College Credit Options @ BHS information night at 6:30 PM on February 4, 2020 when teachers will present information for earning college credit on campus through Advanced Placement, College in the High School, and Career & Technical Education coursework. During school on February 10, 11, and 12, all returning students will view a registration video, check out interesting classes at the Electives Fair and begin online class registration (closes March 17). The end of February and throughout March will have our counselors working diligently to create schedules for our incoming Class of 2024 students.

The information we gather from the students’ course selections combined with the host of required classes will then drive our master scheduling process. By May, we should be largely ready to go for 2020-21!
