Academic Advising and Course Selection for the 2020-21 School Year

 During January, February and March all school counselors will meet with each of their rising 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders individually to selection courses for the 2020-21 school year.  During this time, your child will bring home their course selection materials.  It is imperative that you review this information with your student as course offerings are dependent upon enrollment and school staffing decisions are based on the course selections students make.  Please know, to ensure appropriate placement, all course selections will be discussed with and reviewed by the school counselor.
