Q: Are there really 7 periods next year?
A: Yes. The district will be providing details in the near future about exactly what that looks like. But you will for sure need to select 7 credits worth of classes.
Q: If there are 7 periods next year, will there be an 8th period for those who want one?
A: No. You will be able to get all the classes you want in 7 periods.
Q: I am taking a math class over the summer. What math class should I register for?
A: Register for the class that is next in your sequence without the summer class. Then when you complete the summer class let us know. Then we will change your enrollment for the next class up.
Q: I want to take a class that I don't have the prerequisite for yet but I am taking the prerequisite over the summer. Can I still register for that class?
A: Yes. But you need to talk to your counselor and make sure they know your plans.
Q: Can I reduce my schedule if I am on track to graduate?
A: The district is currently considering allowing SENIORS ONLY to reduce their schedule if they are on track. NOTHING HAS BEEN DECIDED YET.
Q: Is there a way to waive my PE credits?
A: Yes. If you play school sports, you can waive .25 credits per season, per sport. There is also a process to use outside sports to waive PE. Neither of these options grant credit, they simply waive it to flex credits. Forms are required to complete the process. But remember that PE is a great way to fill 7 periods without adding extra homework.
Q: How many AP classes should I take?
A: Incoming 9th graders should take no more than 1 (2 if extremely motivated) and add 1 a year. This is just a guideline. The most a student should take is 4, and this is for very motivated students. Remember that AP classes are college level courses. College students usually take 3-4 classes a quarter, thus high school students should not be taking more college level classes than current college students.
