Course Selection Process

 


Course Selection Process


We are excited to begin the online course selection process for the academic year, 2017-2018.

From January to March 2017, Guidance Counselors meet with students across grades 9-11, sharing details regarding courses for 2017-2018, resolving questions or concerns and publishing the Course Request Verification (CRV) document to the iParent Portal, finalizing the process. There are a number of new courses presented to students by their academic teachers, alongside many outstanding and familiar options.

The process gets underway with presentations to students during their Common Directed Study (CDS), and in the case of juniors, in Guidance Seminars (links to PowerPoint presentations are embedded in the chart below). Entering course requests will take place through iStudent (iPass), a familiar tool currently used to monitor grades and review report cards. Parents and Guardians will be able to view this information using their iParent (iPass) account. Directions to using the Online Course Selection portal in iStudent have been provided in the documents on this webpage, as well as being provided to students via hard copies in the presentations listed below.

Directions: Add Extracurricular Activities

As we move through the scheduling process, students and parents should be sure to have meaningful conversations together about the student’s course choices. It is especially important to factor in time commitments to outside/extracurricular activities when considering a healthy balance of courses. Please consider the time needed to successfully meet the demands of selected courses in conjunction with all of the student’s outside/extracurricular activities. We want students to feel challenged but not overwhelmed. To assist with these decisions, please add all extracurricular commitments to the list of course selections. Instructional Video

Students have until February 26 to complete their online course selections. This process is NOT  "first come, first served".
