COURSE SELECTION


  • The course selection process for next school year begins at the end of January. This may seem early to select courses, but this information is very important in regards to staffing decisions and course options for next year.

    How are courses selected?

    • Teachers will be evaluating student performance and data to make recommendations for course levels for next year in January.
    • Teacher recommendations will be populated automatically into StudentVUE.
    • Please take these teacher recommendations seriously, and encourage your student to have a conversation with his/her teacher if the student does not agree with a teacher’s recommendation.
    • The core classes will be locked in StudentVUE and can only be changed with the school counselor AFTER the individual academic advising session has been conducted.
    • Students and parents can edit elective courses in StudentVUE between January 20th & March 25th.
    • Counselors will meet with ALL students individually to review each student’s course selection and discuss them in depth with their Academic Career Plan and post-secondary options.

    Please remember this is a process. Please take advantage of the presentations being offered below as we believe these will answer all of your questions regarding course sequencing, class options, and graduation requirements.
