First Day of School Procedures

First Day of School Schedule Distribution Procedures

For the 2014-15 school year we will distribute schedules at the end of 1st period. There are numerous ways for your child to find out their first period class for the 1st day of school.

  1. Check Parent Portal after 4pm on September 3rd.

  2. A first period list will be posted by 7 digit student ID number at www.dhhs.net by 4pm on September 3rd.

  3. Students can stop by the school any time after 4pm on September 3rd to on the wooden fence leading to the gym by the music rooms.

Students will look for their name (at school) or 7 digit ID number (online) to see where to report for first period. Their first period teacher will distribute schedules during the last few minutes of first period. If the list shows you do not have a 1st period, please report to the gymnasium.

If you did not attend registration, your name will be tagged and you will not have a first period class listed. You will be able to complete the registration process(pay for ASU card, PE clothes, take your photo, etc) in the gymnasium on the first day of school. Please make sure you have the 3  mandatory forms to turn in.

  1. Print and sign the Data Confirmation Parent signature form once you completed (or updated) the Parent Portal process

  2. McKinney-Vento Assistance Act Form

  3. Federal Aid Impact Form

For further information, please contact the guidance office at (949) 496-6666.

 

NEW POLICIES REGARDING LEVELING AND ADDING NEW COURSES

Beginning with the 2014/15 school year the last day to make level changes or to drop a non-required class will be at the end of the 4th week of school—Friday, October 3rd. Therefore, no new classes will be allowed once school starts unless there is availability in elective offerings. While we would love to be able to allow students to change their preferences to their courses, we cannot honor requests to switch electives or other courses simply based on a change of preference.

Students should attend all of the classes listed on their schedule even if they believe there is an error on their schedule. Students may pick up and complete an Add/Drop Form beginning with lunch on the first day of school or down load it at www.dhhs.net on the guidance page. The guidance office will be very busy during the morning of the first day of school completing enrollment of new students and first day of school registration. Any students or parents who report to the guidance office with scheduling concerns before lunch will be unable to speak to an academic advisor. There are only a very limited number of reasons a student may request a schedule change.

Conditions for changes that will be considered include:

Conditions that WILL NOT be honored include:

Missing Subject (i.e. no English, math, science, PE class, etc….)

Teacher requests

Missing Period or Double Period (i.e. no class scheduled during a particular period or 2 classes scheduled during the same period)

Period changes

 

Concerns regarding level placement for English, math, science, social science and world language. (Excluding math for 9th grade students)

Elective changes

 

Adjustments for athletics/PE (you will not be added to an athletic course unless the coach has provided a roster. Every Freshman must be enrolled in PE for the entire year).

Preference changes

 

The school asks for your patience and that you review and follow the guidelines for making class change requests. It is common for students to have some movement in their class schedule during the first few weeks of school due to school initiated changes. Schedule change requests will be handled in a timely manner, usually within two days of receiving the Add/Drop Form.

 

Walk-Through Registration Information

PARENT PORTAL

The Parent Portal is now open for parents to reconfirm student data for the 2014-15 school year. Please complete the confirmation process for each child you have enrolled in CUSD. The confirmation process will lead you to the Data Confirmation/Parent Signature Form that is required at Walkthrough Registration along with the other required and optional forms within the Registration Packet.  Please click on the “Access to Parent and Student Portals” link at the top of the ABI.capousd.org webpage to access the Parent Portal.

The log-in page has a “Forgot Password” feature if you happen to have forgotten your password.
There are also tutorials on how to set up a Parent Portal account on the
ABI.capousd.org webpage if you have never done so before.

 

SUMMER WALK-THROUGH REGISTRATION FOR ENROLLED STUDENTS

Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. and closes at 11:30 a.m. each day. In an effort to avoid long lines, we are scheduling students by day and time, according to birthdates. Please arrange your schedule to be here during your scheduled time. If you are unable to attend registration on your assigned date or time, you may come to any of the assigned days after yours and you will be able to fill in at the end of the line after the students with assigned times have entered. If you are unable to do this, you must hand in all information on the first day of school, Thursday, September 4, 2014 at the designated tables.

 

Required Forms at Walk-through Registration

  1. Data Confirmation/Parent Signature Form from Parent Portal OR Student Information Card (Data Confirmation Form PREFERRED)

  2. McKinney-Vento Assistance Act

  3. Federal Impact Aid Survey

 

On registration day you may take your ID picture and pay for various items such as yearbook, ASU card, etc.  Textbooks will be checked out during registration this year. Lockers will be issued during registration.  Students must have a locker partner and both students must have their current ID card to obtain their locker.  Upperclassmen may not share lockers with underclassmen unless they are siblings.

FRESHMEN/NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION DAY

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

 

NEW POLICIES REGARDING LEVELING AND ADDING NEW COURSES

In addition, beginning with the 2014/15 school year the last day to make level changes or to drop a non-required class will be at the end of the 4th week of school—Friday, October 3rd. All students had the opportunity to make changes to their course selections by June 20th, which was the last opportunity to make course changes for next year, with the exception of leveling down during Registration.  Our teacher staffing is determined by student course requests and so course requests needed to be as accurate as possible so that we are staffed correctly for next year. We are also making a concerted effort to minimize the number of changes that take place during Registration and the first few of weeks of school in order to reduce any interruptions to classroom instruction at the beginning of the school year. Therefore, no new classes will be allowed unless there is availability in elective offerings.

 

REMEMBER:

  • Freshmen and sophomores must be enrolled in six classes.

  • Juniors and seniors must maintain a minimum of five classes if for any reason you are dropped, you will no longer be enrolled in your five required classes and may be referred to an alternative high school program.

  • Teacher and period requests are not honored.

  • Zero period is not guaranteed.

  • Students (juniors and Seniors) with a zero period are not guaranteed a 0-4 schedule. Example: 0,1,2,4,6

  • 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

  • All Students will have at least one class after lunch unless course offerings are not available.

2014-15 Course Selections

Please contact your student's academic advisor asap if you need to make a change to next year's course selections. Our teacher staffing is determined by student course requests and we need these to be as accurate as possible so that we are staffed correctly for next year. We are also making a concerted effort to minimize the number of changes that take place during Registration and the first few of weeks of school in order to reduce any interruptions to classroom instruction at the beginning of the school year.

In addition, beginning next year the last day to make level changes or to drop a non-required class will be at the end of the 4th week of school—Friday, October 3rd.

Fall Advisement for 14-15

Students need to complete their online course selection by midnight on Sunday, March 30th. Students can access their courses and make changes through https://abi.capousd.org/. Look in the Guidance locker below and to the right to see course offerings and course selection instructions.

Last year students created a Student Portal account so that they will have access to the same information and records as the Parent Portal, along with registering for classes. Most students have created this account and should log on frequently to view the data listed above. If you did not create an account you will need the following information:  ID number, an email address (must be different than parents’), and the unique verification code that was used to create the Parent Portal account (This number can be obtained from the DHHS guidance office). DHHS students will again use their Student Portal account to complete the registration process and choose your classes. It will be essential for students to have a valid Student Portal account to properly register for courses. Students will not have the ability to change the data that parents enter in the Parent Portal. Information regarding opening a Student Portal account is available at https://abi.capousd.org/.
