Choice of Studies for 2012-13

DSA Parents of 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th Graders:

On Thursday, January 12, 2012 Miss Odom met with each class separately to discuss the high school course selections for the 12/13 school year.  These meetings happened in the Concert Hall.

Your child walked out with 4 things:

  1. Choice of Studies Sheet for the appropriate grade level
  2. Green “Choice of Studies” document which gives all the directions of how to select courses
  3. Arts Endorsed Diplomas requirements
    1. This form was also given to your student at the August 2011 meetings and is available online
  4. Yellow Box Sheet (for optional student use)

Miss Odom, using these documents, thoroughly explained how to go to parent/student portal and select classes for the 12/13 school year.  All of these directions can be found on the green “choice of studies” sheet.

What happens if your child comes home with nothing?  How can you find this information online?  Follow these steps:

  1. DSA Homepage
  2. Parent
  3. Counseling Center
  4. 2012-2013 Choice of Studies

You are now at the link which walks you through, step by step, the process and timeline DSA will use this spring to select high school classes for next year.  If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will see “Download 12/13 Choice of Studies Information Here”.  Right below this title we have linked all of the information for you to access at home.

Students have from January 12, 2012-February 1, 2012 at noon to select their classes online through portal.  Students may delete and add classes as many times as they wish during this three week window.  Students are also asked to turn in hard copy of the course selections to the counseling center by February 1, 2012.

We ask, as you are making your choices, that you only take classes which you are intending to take.  We build our master schedule based on these requests.  Please be thoughtful when selecting for this has a huge impact on staffing, class size and the final master schedule.

Thank you
