Fall Advisement 2015-16

If you are an incoming 9th grader please click here to get more information about your registration process.

Fall Advisement begins today, March 13th and will end on March 22nd. All students received a packet in their 4th period class today with course information that will allow them to review and add courses to their Fall schedule.  Students must use the Student Portal for Advisement, core courses have been pre-loaded based on district placement guidelines and students will have the opportunity to select electives/PE courses. Teachers had the opportunity over the last week to make recommendations for students, so there may be more than one course in a content area when a student is looking at the classes listed in the portal. Students cannot delete courses, but can discuss with their academic advisor which course is right for them. The advisor can make the change during the 1:1 meeting they will have with each student over the next 6 weeks. During Advisement academic advisors and support staff will be available in the library during tutorial to assist students with any questions or to sign up students on the Student Portal. 9, 10, and 11 grade students can view the Course Offering document, Instruction document and Entering Course Request Instructions document. To sign up for an after school ROP class please see Julie Marquez in room 501. If you have any questions please see your academic advisor. 

ADDITIONAL ITEMS FOR CONSIDERATION WHEN MAKING COURSE REQUESTS

  • Electives were not chosen for you. Use the course offerings sheet to choose your electives.  List an alternative elective in the Course Request screen on the STUDENT PORTAL to increase the chance of getting your desired elective!
  • Students entering the 10th grade must take 6 classes.
