2017-2018 SCHEDULING

PowerSchool Online Registration

What is Online Registration? Students enter their course requests online from home. This provides an opportunity for more collaboration between parents and their children in the selection of courses. Please note that students are only selecting the courses; they are not selecting the precise periods or teachers of the classes. Once all of the requests are entered administration and staff will build the schedule in consideration of student course requests. Current 8th grade students will be entering their requests during the school day with their counselor.
