                      Out of district high schools-     See each particular school for registration process.


SPECIAL PROGRAMS: STEM, LISA, and IB have an application process with a deadline. If you need to have teachers fill out recommendations for you, please give them 2-3 weeks notice so they have ample time to write you a great recommendation! Thanks:)

SPORTS and CLUBS: If you are interested in your high school student council, music groups, theater, dance team, cheerleading, & sports, contact high schools for more information. You may also talk to your current middle school teachers to help with this information.

GETTING A HEAD START: You may choose to look at the district course book to start planning what classes you would like to take. This course book is for the four non-charter Thompson School District high schools. www.thompson.k12.co.us-->academics-->course guides and handbooks-->download the course guides (you can look at the 9-12 grades to see what the succession of classes are in a certain content area, what AP classes are offered, etc.).

DEC. 18, 2015. DECIDING ON A HIGH SCHOOL: Please have your parents email Mrs. Jobman what high school you will be attending. This is due by December 15th, before Winter Break, so we can start getting your registration process ready for the school you will be attending. *If you are attending a high school out of Thompson School District, you will need to contact that school for their registration process.

OPEN ENROLLMENT:
If you choose to attend a TSD school outside your attendance area, you need to fill out an open enrollment application during December of your 8th grade year. This process is completed through the high schools rather than your middle school. This form can be found at: thompson.K12.co.us-->Academics-->Choice Programs-->School of Choice/Open Enrollment-->Open Enrollment Application
DUE TO THE HIGH SCHOOLS BEFORE WINTER BREAK.


JANUARY

CLASS RECOMMENDATIONS: Your middle school teachers will be making recommendations for you on what 'level' of classes you should take in high school: Regular, PreAP in the following: Civics, English, Math, Spanish, and Science.

OPEN ENROLLMENT: you should find out in January (from the high school) if you were accepted into any special programs you applied for. In addition, Open Enrollment decisions will be made during January (if you are wanting to attend a school that is not your 'home school' for your attendance area). If you have not heard by the end of January, call the high school you are hoping to attend.

STUDENTS ON IEPs : If you are on an IEP, you need to schedule a meeting with your parent(s), Mrs. Reed, and a representative from your prospective high school. Contact Monica Reed at mreed@newvisioncharterschool.org to schedule this meeting. Needs to be completed during January.
