Our School Counseling Department is excited to begin the course enrollment process for the 2017-18 school year. Students will once again enter their course requests online in the student portal of PowerSchool. On Monday, December 12th, school counselors will visit English classes to discuss the online enrollment process and hand out course enrollment forms. Instruction will be provided to students on how to enter their course requests in PowerSchool. Students will be able to enter their course selections beginning December 12th and must complete this process by January 13, 2017. Students who have an IEP or who receive academic support within the ELL program will have access to view their course selections.
It is essential that your student give careful consideration to his/her course choices. Any changes past February 3rd, 2017 must be discussed with the student’s school counselor prior to April 30th, 2017 and are subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed. Students may not change their mind after April 30, 2017. Parents, we value your input in this process because you best understand your own student’s interests and goals. You also see how the overall academic rigor of his or her schedule affects daily functioning. Please encourage your student to thoroughly read the GBN Enrollment Handbook, talk to teachers, and utilize the “Guidelines for Course Enrollment” sheet that counselors developed to assist them.
