Course Selection & Scheduling
Course Selection Information
Check out last year's 2017 Course Planning Night Presentation in this half-hour video.
Course selection typically occurs in February and March of the school year. Students will complete a course selection card by carefully reviewing their Program of Studies (POS). Students should understand their graduation requirements and required course prerequisites.
Students should complete their requests by taking into consideration the following factors: discussions with their families, their academic/social needs and interests, graduation requirements, teacher recommendations and their post secondary plans. The student’s parent/guardian should review and agree to all course requests. Please see your counselors for more information about this process.
Student Scheduling Information
Schedules will be available via Aspen starting in late summer 2018 (date To Be Announced). Schedules will not be mailed home this summer, however, if you would like a hard copy, please stop into SHS to request one. Schedules will be printed and handed out in your advisory on the 1st day of school. We will have add/drop time during a week in late August. Please call to schedule an appointment with your counselor during this week if you plan to come in to make changes. Schedules changes after the start of the school year will be limited. Please refer the 2018-2019 SHS Program of Studies (pg. 78) for our add/drop protocol.
