Scheduling for 2017-18

Feb. 14th- Feb. 22nd- Scheduling presentations occur in Bible classes; 8th-11th grade students will make initial selections

Feb. 28th-May 10th – Students begin one on one conferences. Each student will meet with Miss Petty (8th graders will meet with Mrs. Futrell) and will go over their course selections and their four year plan.

April- Mrs. Powell returns from maternity leave and will be available for conferences with parents if one is needed.

May 31st- This is the last day that course selections can be altered

Things to keep in mind:

In order to move up a level, you must maintain an A in your current level for one semester.

Teachers are making recommendations and they will be on file in the counseling office. It is highly recommended you have a conversation with your teacher about where they think you would do well.

Summer reading in the Pre-AP and Dual Credit English may require much of you. If you don’t think you will get it done, don’t sign up for those classes. AP Chemistry and AP Physics are also courses that require summer preparation.
