Course Registration Process

Course Registration for high school students will be taking place during the week of February 19th. Middle School Registration will be held in March. The electronic registration process will be completed in English classes by the School Counseling Department.

Junior Course Registration Days - Wednesday, February 21 and Thursday, February 22

Sophomore Course Registration Days - Thursday, February 22 and Friday, February 23

Freshman Course Registration Days - Friday, February 23 and Monday, February 26

To plan for course registration, school counselors will be holding grade level assemblies to review the process and its details:

Thursday, February 8 -- Grade 10 during Connections (8:49-9:11 AM)

Thursday, February 8 -- Grade 11 during their WIT (12:00-12:24 PM)

Thursday, February 8 -- Grade 9 during their WIT (12:28-12:52 PM)

*Snow date is Friday, February 9*

During these grade-level assemblies, the counseling staff will review the registration process, and provide an overview of graduation requirements and required courses students must take. Students will receive a course registration sheet they will be required to complete and return to the School Counseling Office by February 15. Students will be asking teachers to sign off on their core selections. Students will also be asked to bring the course registration sheet home and review with their parents. Parents are required to sign off on the registration form before returning the form to the School Counseling Office.

Teachers will be entering student recommendation levels in PowerSchool during the week of January 29. Parents are encouraged to view the recommendations and discuss course selections with their child prior to course registration. Parents and students are urged to consult with current teachers and individual counselors for further information and evaluation of course choices.

The 2018-2019 Program of Studies will soon be available on our website (www.rsd6.org) for students, faculty, staff, and parents to view. In the meantime, we ask that you begin having conversations with your child about their course selection. Counselors will be meeting with students individually to review their course selections and answer any questions or concerns they may have during the next few months.

As students and parents go through the process of selecting courses for next year, please note that all students are required to carry a minimum of 6 classes per semester and 6 credits per year.

This is the first step of the course registration process for the 2018-2019 school year. This initial process is the “request stage”. Throughout March, the course requests will be used to develop a master schedule for the 2018-2019 school year that best accommodates all student requests. It is important that students take time and select electives carefully. Their requests determine courses that will be offered in the Fall. Once the master schedule has been created, counselors will continue to meet individually with students who have scheduling conflicts identified. If counselors do not meet with a student during this process, it is understood that there are no conflicts with their course registration requests. The counselors will continue to work with students and adjust schedules as necessary throughout the summer. Final schedules will then be available in August.

On January 31, Wamogo will be running an altered bell schedule to accommodate an Electives Assembly. During this assembly, electives teachers will present their 2018/2019 class elective options to students. Seniors must report to supervised study in the cafeteria during the assembly.
