The scheduling window for current freshmen, sophomores and juniors to select courses for the 2020-2021 school year opens February 10, 2020 and closes Tuesday February 18, 2020. Students will be scheduling through their student Aeries portal. Students who are unable to access their Aeries Portal should send email to Registrar Karen Mills, email@example.com
with their full name, birth date, grade, and email address.
Note: Incoming Freshmen will meet with counselors in April to select classes.
Registration information has been mailed home to all students. Students must return their SCHEDULING WORKSHEET, TIME MANAGEMENT SHEET, and any required REQUEST FOR PLACEMENT FORMS (all signed by student and parent) to the Counseling Office no later than Tuesday, February 18, 2020 at 3pm.WAIVING INTO COURSES
Teacher recommendations are the best predictor of success. If students register for a course for which they were not recommended or for which they do not meet the prerequisites, they must complete a REQUEST FOR PLACEMENT FORM form. (see link above)
Please be advised, although we encourage our students to try Honors and AP classes, the availability of level changes is never guaranteed. Therefore, it is essential that students select courses wisely and not assume that they will be able to drop down from an Honors or AP class. Per Board policy, level changes are based on space availability.
FINALIZING COURSE SELECTIONS
Counselors will meet with students to review their course selections on the following dates:
Juniors – February 19-24 through English classes
Sophomores - March during individual Sophomore Counseling appointments
Freshman – February 25th and 26th through English classes
Once counselors have met with and verified all student course requests, parents will receive a letter with their child’s final course selections for 2020-2021. Prior to May 29, 2020 any student wishing to make a change to the courses selected must come to the Counseling Office and fill out a Request to Change Course form. This must be signed by a parent and returned to the Counseling Office. During the summer, requests to change a course due to a graduation requirement or summer school issue must be submitted via email to Gayle Carpenter, Associate Principal at firstname.lastname@example.org
All other course request changes must wait until schedule change days in August.
