Course Selection Process for the 2021-22 school year

The course selection process begins in the late winter. Teachers will recommend a course level (CP, H, AP) for each student for the next year. If a student or parent/guardian has questions about a teacher’s recommendation, he/she should consult with the teacher. The teacher’s recommendation will become the student’s course level placement unless the student or parent/guardian(s) initiates the course placement review process. Detailed course information can be found in the program of studies which can be accessed by clicking on the link below.

Students disagreeing with their placement in a recommended core academic class should first talk with their teacher and begin the placement review process. Course Placement Review forms are available below.
