Course selection for the 2023-2024 academic year begins February 13, 2023, and ends March 3, 2023.
Each year at the start of the second semester, students in grades 8-11 use OnCourse Connect to request high school electives to be taken in the upcoming school year. Placement in academic courses is based on a student meeting the eligibility requirements for the course.
The steps in the course selection process are as follows:
Teachers enter academic placements for which students are eligible based on prerequisites
Students enter four (4) electives that they would be happy taking.
Counselors will make appointments with all students to discuss an overall program plan, including appropriate modifications to course requests for the upcoming school year.
If a student does not meet the eligibility requirements for a course, a waiver form can be found below. Waiver forms must be returned to your school counselor by April 21, 2023
If you decide to change an elective request AFTER meeting with your counselor, you must contact your counselor to make the change. Do NOT make the change through OnCourse Connect.
Student requests for changes in electives will not be accepted after April 21, 2023
