23-24 Registration: Course Verification Form Info and Video
As the final part of registration for courses for the 2023-24 school year, Course Verification Forms will be distributed to students in homeroom on Monday 3/27/23. This form is a FINAL opportunity to modify course requests for the upcoming school year. Students and their parents/guardians should review their form (and the letter on the back, which details important information). The letter on the back of all verification forms can be viewed by clicking HERE.
If a student sees a change or note needing to be made to their course requests on their Course Verification Form, they should note that change and submit their Form to the guidance office no later than Friday, 3/31 at 3:00 PM. Only forms noting a change must be turned in to guidance; if no changes are needed, and a student is content with the courses listed and number of total credits, they do not need to submit their form. Friday 3/31 is our hard deadline for all student/parent input, including requested changes, to courses for next year; after this date, construction of the master schedule, and in turn individual student schedules, will move forward.
This video (click HERE to view) explains important points about this final step of 2023-24 registration for students and parents. Some of these points include:
Minimum number of enrolled credits by grade level (SCDE requirement)
9th grade = 7 credits
10th grade = 6 credits
11th grade = 6 credits
12th grade = 4 credits (2 each semester)
Note: if a student does not request enough classes total to meet the minimum number of credits for their grade level next year, they should add enough electives to meet this number on their Course Verification Form (including anticipated Dual Enrollment classes) and return it to the guidance office by Friday 3/31. Otherwise, their school counselor will fill their schedule with whichever courses are most available at EHS.
A full schedule is 8 credits total.
If a student did not request 8 credits, and did not mark Early Dismissal/Late Arrival on their registration card, Study Halls will be used to fill any remaining spaces in their schedule.
Early Dismissal/Late Arrival and Study Hall do not appear on Course Verification Sheets.
These will be added, based on students' requests on registration cards, to fill all available spaces in each student's schedule after the master schedule has been built.
Updated Policy on Schedule Change Requests (will apply to final schedules given out at the start of the 2023-24 school year)
Schedule changes will no longer be allowed after the state-approved 5-day window (the first 5 days of the 2023-24 school year).
During the 5-day window, schedule changes can be made ONLY based on extenuating circumstances (included but not limited to: conflict with Dual Enrollment courses, missing a core class, enrolled in a class already taken and earned credit for).
Any changes made after this 5-day window generally results in a WF on the final transcript, which factors into GPA as a grade of 50.
