Course Registration Information for 2019-2020 School Year

Dear Parents/Guardians,


It’s time to start planning for next year; below is the process/timeline for course registration.


Pre-registration

This week we are doing pre-registration with current 9th-11th graders.  This process allows us to know what courses students are interested in taking so that we can build the schedule to best meet their graduation requirements and desires.  What they put on the pre-registration forms is not binding, since some classes chosen may end up during the same hour on the final schedule, but it allows us to see trends to try to avoid those types of conflicts. That being said, in a small school there will always be course conflicts.


Registration Forms Handed Out

Official registration forms will be handed out on the following dates during Rocket Time:

March 13 - Juniors

March 15 - Sophomores

March 21 - Freshmen

The students will be instructed to bring these home and go over them with you. Please go through graduation requirements with them; found on the school website under Counseling. Also on the website is the 2019-2020 Course Catalog. This catalog has course descriptions of all classes offered in 9th-12th grade.  These are written by the teacher, so this is the best place to find out about the courses. After going through their forms, graduation requirements, and course descriptions, please circle classes choices and sign the form.


Registration Meetings

Individual registration meetings will be held on March 18, 21, 25, 26, 28, and 29th with Mrs. Hartman and/or Mrs. Breer.  The meetings start with juniors and work down to the freshman. Students should check the bulletin board outside of Mrs. Hartman's room daily to see which courses have filled.  If a class is filled they should have a second choice. At their meeting their class choices will be entered into the registration system and should be set for the next year, unless there are unforeseen changes in staffing or student numbers before next year.


College Classes

Students at Underwood High School have the opportunity to take college classes.  We offer 43 credits in house taught by our teachers. These are dual credit, so students earn high school and college credits at the same time.  Seniors and Juniors, along with a select number of Sophomores, have the opportunity to take these classes based on their GPA and if they pass the college's Accuplacer test requirements. For more information on eligibility, contact Mrs. Hartman.  


If a student is considering taking classes at a college during high school (PSEO), they need to declare their intent to Mrs. Hartman by May 1st, so a meeting with parents, students, and Mrs. Hartman can happen before the end of the school year.  The state requires that you inform the high school by May 30th so that we can plan and make appropriate staffing decisions for our high school. More information about PSEO can be found under Counseling on the school website.


Please contact us if you have any questions.
