How to fill out the Course Selection Sheet

  • Keep the Program of Studies as a resource.

  • Use PENCIL.

  • Must total 8 credits.

  • Use the level of classes suggested by your middle school teachers or counselor.

  • Complete left side of page first.

  • Must choose Alternatives: One full credit and one ½ credit class. Please choose these classes carefully!

  • Return course selection sheet to the middle school on or before February 10th


Things to consider or not to do…

  • DON’T take a class because you “like who teaches it.”

  • Remember that staffing changes from year to year.

  • DON’T sign up for classes just because a friend is

    signing up for that course. Most courses have

    multiple sections and you cannot pick the section

    you are taking.

  • DO remember this is high school and EVERY grade

    you earn can make an impact on your future plans.
