    Personalized Course Selection

    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 their Student Access account in Skyward.  The benefits of this system include:  a streamlined approach to choosing courses, intentional advising including creating, revisiting, and revising 4-year plans, and some student choice in creating their 8 period day.
