Personalized Course Selection

  • What is it?
    Personalized Course Selection will allow current 8th graders, high school Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors to participate in choosing their courses for the next school year using SchooLinks and/or their Student Access account in Skyward. The benefits of this system include: a streamlined approach to choosing courses, intentional advisement including creating, revisiting, and revising 4-year plans, and some student choice in creating their 8 period school day.
    When is it happening? As you read across this chart, you will find when skyward course requests and parent meetings will take place by school, per grade, and date.
