Advisement is the process we use at DHHS in which students choose their 2nd semester electives and/or level in a class. Wednesday, Dec. 4th we will begin this process. During tutorial, 4th period classes will receive a list of courses. Students will confer with their teachers and parents about their course selection. Yearlong classes will roll over unless you choose to make a level change. Example: AP to non-AP, Acc to non-Acc, Honors to non-Honors. If a level change is desired, parents must email their student’s Academic Advisor with parent approval. Students will make changes to their 2nd semester schedules through their Student Portal. Most students did this last year when choosing this years’ classes. If students need help with this process or have forgotten their login information, staff will be in the library during tutorial from Dec. 4 – 13. This is the time frame for students to adjust their schedules for 2nd semester. After Dec. 13th, the student portal will be closed. Students will need their transcript for discussions with their teachers. Please print out your transcript from Parent portal and have it in your backpack before Dec. 4th.
Student schedules are developed based on course requests that were submitted in April. We do our best to honor course requests based on the school-wide needs. A few reminders and changes are below. Please read all the information carefully.
- Teacher and period requests are not honored.
- All students will have at least one class after lunch unless course offerings are not available.
- Students taking an ROP or Saddleback class as their 5th class are not guaranteed a 1-4 schedule. Based on school-wide scheduling needs a student may have the following schedule periods 1,3,5,2 with an ROP or Saddleback course.
- Students wanting to change/drop an elective must fill out an Advisement Form.
- Students (juniors and seniors) with a zero period are not guaranteed a 0-4 schedule. Ex-0,1,2,4,6.
- Zero period is not guaranteed and the priority breakdown is listed below. Students that requested a zero period last spring will have first priority based on the criteria below.
Senior impacted schedule (HMO, SOCSA, ASU, ETC)
Junior impacted schedule (HMO, SOCSA, ASU, ETC)
Sophomore impacted schedules (HMO, SOCSA, ASU, ETC)
Freshman impacted schedules (HMO, SOCSA, ASU, ETC)
*work schedule and sibling transportation are not factors for receiving a 0 period.
The registration process will be similar to past years with a few minor changes. Students will pick up their preliminary schedule at the end of the registration process and will be able to see their academic advisor only if they have one of the following issues. All other questions or requests can be made by filling out an Advisement form located at www.dhhs.net. Students can also email or call their academic advisor to set up an appointment. This contact information will be made available at the schedule distribution table during registration.
See your academic advisor on registration day if you have:
- Double classes (two of the same classes on your schedule)
- Missing classes (missing needed classes. i.e.-English, History or a 5th or 6th class due to your year in school)
- Repeat class (class on your schedule already taken and passed)
Teacher and period assignments may change between registration and the beginning of school to accommodate student needs. These changes are made in order to make class sizes smaller, work with teachers who coach for DHHS sports teams, or accommodate teacher assignment changes that address needs elsewhere in the master schedule. All changes are made with the students in mind and to keep impact at a minimum.
