Scheduling Information

The scheduling process for a school year begins in the winter of the prior year.  The process is as follows…

  • Each student receives a course selection book and grade-level specific (9th, 10th, 11th or 12th) scheduling sheet during a class meeting with guidance counselors.
  • A night-time scheduling presentation is then held.  All 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students and their parents are encouraged to attend.
  • Students must discuss possible course selections with their parents and current teachers.  Guidance counselors are also available for students to discuss selections with.  Current teachers recommend them for the courses they are requesting.  Special education teachers must also have their case managers sign approval for their course selections.  Students are reminded to consider graduation requirements and post-secondary plans when considering their selections.
  • During the designated scheduling request window, students input their course requests into the computer through their PowerSchool account.  Students must request a minimum of seven (7) credits plus alternate electives.
  • Schedules are then created based upon a student’s requests, teacher recommendations, graduation requirements, and class availability.
  • Before the end of the school year students receive their tentative schedule and are asked to review it for accuracy, keeping in mind graduation requirements.  Changes may be made to this tentative schedule for academic reasons.  Changes are not made for teacher or lunch preferences.
  • On the first day of school students then receive their official schedule.  
The course handbook, elective lists and course selection sheets can downloaded from the Guidance Documents page.
