      4. If you change your mind, simply uncheck the row and begin again

    Students enrolled in Math 6

    • Students currently in Math 6 must choose their next Math course on their source registration from either:
      • Math 7 and 8 Compacted A (Accelerated Course)
      • Math 7

     

    Selecting Electives

    You need to determine how many electives you need to complete your schedule. There are 3 categories for electives:

    1. Full Year Electives
    2. Semester Electives
    3. Alternate Electives

    • Each full year elective class counts as two (2) semesters. You man choose up to two (2) of these classes.
    • If you choose one (1) full year elective, then you need to ALSO choose two (2) semester long electives.
    • If you do not choose a full year elective, you need to choose four (4) semester long electives.
    • All students must choose four (4) alternate electives that are different than their initial choices.

     

    Alternate Electives

    • Select 4 alternate semester electives.
    • Why? Your initial elective requests may be full, or they might not fit in your schedule.
    • If your initial elective requests are full or do not fit into your schedule, your alternate electives will be used to complete your schedule.
    • Do not select a course as an Alternate that you have already selected initially. (It will not help you get the course and will only cause an error.)

     

    Notes

    • Always click “Okay” on the bottom right corner of the category screens to save/submit your requests.
    • Priority – Unfortunately, the software does not allow you to tell us what priority to use for your Alternate requests.
    • Got an error message? Double check what you’ve selected to make sure you’ve selected the correct number of courses. Too many or not enough will give you an error.
    • Did you select all your full year, semester, and alternate electives?
    • Have a pressing question? Contact your counselor
