Official schedules will be posted through skyward in August on a date yet to be determined.

    • I have read and understand the information pertaining to course registration for the 20/21 school year.
    • I understand some courses may not make due to minimum enrollment requirements and/or staffing availability.
    • I understand the importance of selecting and ranking alternate course selections in case of course availability issues or a course does not make.
    • I understand alternates may be used due to course conflicts or availability.
    • I understand the requirements of Pre AP and AP courses.
    • I have reviewed my course/my child’s course selections.
