Course Registration

When do I Register?

Current Students

Course registration for incoming 9th graders and for current 10th, 11th and 12th graders happens each year starting in late February and extending into March.  Once the regular registration window closes, no changes will be made to course request sheets.  

Students New to the District

After enrolling in the district and determining which school you'll be attending, course registration will be done by the students' counselor and the Registrar directly.

Regarding the online course selection process: 

Currently, all high schools and some middle schools use a combination of paper form and online course selection in order for students to choose courses for the next school year. This provides the receiving school with both electronic and paper versions of course selections for each student which ensures safe keeping for all involved. There will be a step by step video as well as written instructions (with screen shots provided) on how to enter courses in StudentVue.

Schedule Changes

Choices made by students during registration are considered to be final. Courses offered and school staffing are based on the decisions students make during the registration process. However, schedule changes may be made on a very limited basis for the following reasons:

  • A graduation requirement must be added
  • A student does not have the skills to continue in a year-long class
  • Administrative withdrawal is requested
  • Incomplete schedule
  • Duplicate classes/obvious errors
  • IEP/ELL placement issues

Any schedule change that does not meet these criteria is subject to denial.
