Getting Help With Your Schedule
Thoroughly read the Curriculum Guide for class
descriptions and prerequisites
Talk to your current teachers about what you should take
in that academic subject area next year. It is strongly
recommended that you follow their advisement and do not
choose a different level or different course than what is
recommended. Teachers must initial in ink next to
Honors/AP choices and approve of the class.
Speak to your parents about course selection and get their
input. Parents must sign the bottom of the form in ink.
Getting Help With Your Schedule
There is a counselor on lunch duty everyday at a table
on the courtyard side of Guidance during both lunches
to answer student questions. Ms. Reyes is also available
during lunches in the hallway in Building 7.
Counselors can be called or emailed directly by students
and/or parents.
If you need assistance, speak to someone before you
are due to input your classes. DO NOT WAIT until the
day you are in the Media Center.
Intensive Reading is required if a student scores a Level
2 or below on FCAT Reading. Intensive Math classes
may be required if you do not pass the Algebra or
Geometry EOC.
Please choose alternates for ALL of your elective
choices because you may not get your top choices. If
you don’t have enough alternates and your top choices
aren’t available, you will get placed in whatever class is
available and not be able to change it.
Important Registration Dates
Students will get their registration cards on February 12th
during 3rd period. *When you get it, confirm that your contact
information on the top is accurate (i.e., address, phone number)
Students will input the schedules into their Skyward account in
the Media Center through Science classes at some point between
February 21st -28th
Since students are entering schedules into Skyward on specific
dates, late schedules will not be accepted. It is your
responsibility to get signatures from parents/teachers before
your scheduled date in the Media Center.
Schedule Change Policy
Choose courses wisely!! It is extremely difficult to
change schedules once they are finalized. Standard
academic classes are typically full during the school year
so Honors and AP course selections are full year
The only times a schedule change will be guaranteed is
if you have already earned credit in the course, the
prerequisite was not completed, or if you are scheduled
for too few or too many classes.
*For more details on Steps to a Successful Registration and our
Schedule Change Policy, see page 3 of your Curriculum Guide
