SCHEDULING PROCESS

Freshman Center Counselors go to the three middle schools and will provide scheduling information during 8th grade Science classes in the computer labs.

During these meetings, students will receive a scheduling worksheet and instruction packet. Students will learn how to use the scheduling worksheet and how to access the on-line scheduling system. They will take materials home and, with their parents, select their 9th grade courses on-line.

SCHEDULING PROCESS –next step

The Freshmen Center Counselors will return the following week and will meet individually with each student, checking the course requests that were selected using the on-line system. Questions will be answered and any necessary adjustments will be made to the student’s schedule.

After the student has met with the counselor, parents may view the finalized course requests on-line.

Consider the demands of your courses

  • Put the electives in the order of importance (so we will know what to drop in case a lab is needed.)
  • Take the necessary time to plan your courses for a great 9th grade year.
  • Consider your out-of- school commitments when planning your schedule.
