2022-2023 Future Schedule Planning

The future scheduling process for 2022-2023 will be underway shortly. Students will once again use Xello Course Planner to request courses and alternates, and all students in grades 9 - 11 will view a more detailed presentation regarding the course request process in Advisory on December 1st during Academic and Career Planning (ACP) week. A parent/guardian information letter will be emailed home around the same time. Because our process is paperless, we request that all students discuss their choices with their parent/guardian PRIOR to submitting them on the Xello Course Planner.

Additional future planning information, including departmental offerings, a complete list of all offered courses, and the full ACP Course Guide with detailed descriptions and prerequisites can be found on the FHS School Counseling "Choosing Courses" page here. All students MUST submit their request on Xello by Friday, December 17.

FHS Course Changes and Updates for 2022-23

As we prepare for future course selections, we wanted to provide you with some updates to be aware of:

  • Our FHS InRoads program has successfully served as a program that allowed us to pilot many important and valuable college and career ready practices/programs and many of the key attributes of the program now exist on a much broader scale at FHS. We will be sunsetting the program, meaning that students currently enrolled in InRoads will be continuing through the current programming through their graduation. No new student cohorts will begin the program. The last graduating class with students in InRoads will be the class of 2025. Many of these valuable academic and career planning pieces will be monitored and grown through our Education for Employment plan

  • Two business classes will be renamed: Marketing (replacing Sports and Entertainment Marketing) and Advertising (replacing Advertising and Web Design)

  • One math class will be eliminated: Honors Pre-Calculus will no longer be a course.

We will continue to update you if there are any other changes as course selection approaches.
