Course registration for the 2019-2020 school year has begun. Your student will receive their course request form, course list, and a helpful hints page from their science teachers. Please watch this video for more information and for the dates that counselors will meet with each student in their offices, http://www.showme.com/sh?h=awHEfWy
The courses students requested for the 19-20 school year are available in Skyward for review.

LINK TO LETTER AND COURSE REQUEST CORRECTION FORM
*The April 18 deadline is very important because it “drives” the course offerings and helps make certain that we have enough courses to meet the entire student-body demand. Also, please know that this is not the student’s class schedule; it is simply a confirmation of the courses requested. You will receive a copy of the official class schedule at your high school's registration/schedule pick-up before school begins in the fall.
ONCE AGAIN: ALL SCHEDULE CHANGE REQUESTS MUST BE MADE IN WRITING ON THE FORM PROVIDED AND DATED April 18, 2019. CORRECTIONS WILL NOT BE MADE AFTER THE DEADLINE.
