We are preparing to begin our course registration season for the coming 2016-17 school year and wanted to update you about some changes to our course registration procedures. New this year, we are utilizing an online version of our Program of Studies in order to make the information more readily accessible for our families and students and to be more environmentally conscious. While we encourage the use of our online Program of Studies, a printed copy can be mailed upon request by calling (540) 463-6150.
We invite you to visit the following website: www.rchsProgramOfStudies.weebly.com (or use the button below) to view our Program of Studies in website format, which contains information about our 2016-17 course offerings, graduation requirements, and course registration policies. The website is also mobile compatible and can be viewed on any smart-phone by using the aforementioned website. Families are strongly encouraged to review our Program of Studies with their students to prepare for the coming registration season.
On January 14th, we will host our Curriculum Information Night at RCHS from 6:00-7:30pm. All families and students are strongly encouraged to attend to learn more about the course offerings for the coming school year. School counselors will also be available to answer questions about graduation requirements, the course registration process, post-secondary planning, and resources offered through the school counseling office.
Later this month, students will receive a Course Registration Worksheet, which they will use to request their courses for next school year. Students will complete the worksheet, seek recommendations from their current teachers, and bring the form home to be signed. The signed form is to be returned to the School Counseling Office for review by your student’s assigned school counselor. In the coming weeks, students will then meet individually with their school counselor to discuss their course requests and Academic and Career Plan.
Please feel free to contact your student’s assigned school counselor with any questions.
