Scheduling Introduction Letter
9th-11th Grade 
 
January 24, 2017
 
Dear Students and Families,
 
As we begin our second semester, it is time to focus on scheduling for the 2017-2018 school year.  Our 2017-2018 Interactive Program of Studies is available for families and students through our website.  Please use this document to assist you in creating or updating your comprehensive educational high school plan.  Within the Program of Studies, you will find essential information detailing curricular offerings, course selection and scheduling.  We encourage you to use this as a guide throughout the scheduling process.
 
Our high school teachers are sharing course recommendations for next year with all students, now through January 30, 2017.  After requests are submitted, our school counselors will be meeting with students to review course requests and address questions.  A list of significant dates and events are listed below for your information.  These events help to support our students through this process and guide their scheduling decisions as well.
 
The high school staff is looking forward to working with students and families throughout this process in order to create a schedule that meets the individual learning needs and interests of your child, while providing an appropriately challenging high school experience.
Sincerely,  

Nancy Bowman
