Greetings Fellow Titans -
Parents, as you are aware, students were given their course request forms on February 4th during homeroom. Over this last week students have been choosing electives, narrowing down selections for academic courses including AP and Honors recommendations, and meeting with their counselors for advice on graduation status and four year plans. Course registration forms are due back to us this week. It is imperative that a parent sign the form before it is turned in. Your signature indicates to us that you have reviewed and worked with your student in their course selections for next year.
As mentioned earlier in the week, students who have not met the prerequisite or grade requirements to be placed into a higher level Academic, Honors, or AP course will not have the course showing on their course request form at this time. Students have been encouraged by their counselors and teachers to bring up their grades during second semester and they will be given a second opportunity to “request” the advanced course at the twelve week report. Students who meet the grade requirement will have the course placed on their list of requests and those who are within three points of the grade requirement may request a waiver. Waiver information will become available in early April.
Please keep in mind that with the severe budget shortfalls and the possibility of reduction in staff, our course selections will be fewer then in years past and there will be much less flexibility in rearranging schedules at a later date. We will do our best to accommodate requests made at the end of the year but we cannot guarantee any student their first choice selection in electives or later elections to take AP, Honors or Academics that they did not qualify for at this time or did not originally indicate a preference for taking at this time. We also cannot guarantee a student will be able to drop down to a regular level class due to limited space availability. For this reason, it is important to follow the advice of your student’s counselor as to the best academic placement. It is very likely that we will not have space available to allow your student to drop down to an on level course once the 2010-11 school year starts.
Again, it is very important for you to look over your student’s proposed 2010/2011 courses and make the best choice possible at this time. Be sure that your student selects alternates to their elective choices and that the total of units equals 6.0 (or 6.5 for SAT Prep Zero Period juniors and seniors)
Ever upward and onward
