Westview Course Registration

For Current 9th - 11th Grade Westview Students

Throughout the month of March, Counselors will be visiting 9th, 10th, and 11th grade classes to meet with students to discuss their course selection for the 2020-2021 school year. We will be providing students with a copy of their transcript, four year plan and instructions on how to use the course request system in MyPlan. The information provided here will be helpful in the course selection process.

Repeating a D or F grade

4-year colleges and universities do not accept grades of D or F. In most cases, you will need to repeat any A-G class in which you earned a grade of D or F. Please see your Counselor to discuss your options for repeating a class.

What exactly is a College Prep Elective?

In the A-G requirements, category G is listed as a College Prep Elective. At Westview we offer several courses that meet the G category, such as Psychology or Sociology; however, there is another way to meet this requirement. You may use a course that exceeds the minimum amount of coursework in a certain subject area from the A-F categories. For example, if 3 years of math are required, a 4th year of math can count as a College Prep Elective.

Taking a class outside of Westview?

A limited number of outside courses are approved for credit through PUSD. Approval forms must be completed PRIOR to starting the course. Please see our Registrar, Mrs. Carroll for more information.

If you are taking a foreign language course outside of Westview, you will need to complete the Application and Authorization Form for Foreign Language Credit PRIOR to beginning the class.

Thinking of skipping a level of math or taking a summer math course outside PUSD?

Our recommendation is to not skip a level of math. PUSD does not currently have any approved Integrated Math classes through outside schools or programs that will be accepted for credit. If a student takes something over the summer it will not be on their PUSD transcript. More importantly, if a student signs up for the higher level next year and realizes it was not the correct placement, they are not guaranteed a spot in the previous level, as there may not be space available.

Specific to Integrated Math II: Aside from the mathematical instruction and curriculum reasons against skipping Integrated II, there is a college requirement component, as well. The UC system requires that students take a geometry-based math course as part of their 3 year math sequence. They consider Integrated Math II to be this course in the integrated sequence. As you can see in the diagram in the UC reference guide linked below, Math II or Geometry are required in all possible sequences. We have been advising students against skipping Integrated Math II for this reason in particular. We do not want students to find that when they apply for college that they do not meet the UC requirements because they did not take Integrated II. The diagram and more information can be found on page 10 of the UC Counselor Reference Guide.
