course selection
Course Selection

Please be sure to read the description of the elective before choosing.

Please choose wisely, because we do not change electives once the master schedule is made.

If you ask for a class and receive it, you are expected to stay there for the entire length of the course.

Some courses require that you get special approval. Special approval means that you must get the teacher granting permission to sign your schedule request form. For example, band requires that the PJHS band director signs.

individual graduation plans
Individual Graduation Plans

According to the Career Options Law, every student must have an Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) on file at the school.

The plan is initiated in 8th grade and will be updated each year.

The IGP shall be signed by the student and parent or legal guardian each year.

The IGP reflects the curriculum pathway and the recommended sequence of elective courses.

The IGP is flexible, yet sufficiently structured, to ensure that a student will meet the high school requirements for admission to a postsecondary education institution or enter the workforce.
