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/.
