ATTENTION PARENTS AND STUDENTS - IT'S SCHEDULING TIME AGAIN!
Important documents needed for scheduling and course selection for the 2023-24 school year
The course selection process for the 2023-24 school year will begin December 16th for current 9th, 10th and 11th grade students. Students will receive copies of Course Selection sheets and instructions during Activity Period December 16th. Students will have one week to receive signatures for course recommendations for the 2023-24 school year from teachers . School Counselors met with students in grade level assemblies to review the outlined information regarding the Course Selection period. Students will have the opportunity to make appointments with their Counselor to address individual questions or concerns. Appointments can be made with the Counseling Secretary, Mrs. Posey, during the first week of Course Selections. For appointments following December 22, students may schedule appointments at linktr.ee/LPHScounselors. Counselors will also have individual meetings with each student to review the student's course selections during English class for 11th graders, US History for 10th graders and Earth Systems for 9th graders.
Applications for Dual Enrollment, Full-time College Waiver, Principal’s Waiver, Fire/Rescue and Early Graduation are anticipated to be provided by the 10th and 11th grade counselor at the meeting held during the student's class to discuss their Course Request. However, applications are not open and/or have not been received at this time.
Below are important resources and information regarding courses and programs available for next year. Again, the student's selections MUST be submitted to the Counseling Department by December 22.
The course selection process for current 8th grade students varies by school. For information about specific scheduling timelines at each middle school, please contact your child's middle School Counselor.
How to change Teacher Recommendations: Have a parent write a note to the School Counselor to notify the Counselor of the desired course and level. This document will suffice for validating what course you desire to take next year. This applies to changes for core academic classes (A level, Honors and AP level), not the elective courses; as the elective recommendations are only recommendations and students are not locked in to those options.
High School Program of Studies: A useful tool to explain classes offered at LPHS and CCPS schools.
