Your school counselors have been working extensively over the past few weeks as we begin course registration for the upcoming school year!
This year, counselors will be meeting individually with each student to discuss what courses they were recommended for and to discuss their plan toward graduation. Students will then bring a form home to be signed by a parent/guardian that lists the courses they have selected with their counselor. Parents, if you are not content with the courses that your child has selected or if you wish to receive additional information about their choices, there is a box to check to request a meeting with your child's counselor.
We are striving to meet individually with each student over the next few weeks. Each counselor is responsible for over 330 students, so this is quite a lengthy task, but it is certainly important to each of us. Once we have concluded our student meetings, counselors will then begin contacting parents that have requested a meeting with their child's counselor. We anticipate that we will begin parent meetings in late February or early March.
We are hopeful that this new process will improve upon our previous scheduling procedures. We hope that this more comprehensive approach will provide increased attention to the courses being selected and provide increased clarity to both parents and students.
Students will be able to change their course requests until the final day of the 2016 school year. Parents and students should review the courses being requested and think critically about what is being chosen. Because our master schedule is built upon the courses being requested, counselors will NOT be conducting schedule change requests over the summer unless there is an error on a student's schedule (i.e. an incorrect or missing class).
