Course Request 2021-2022
This website is designed to provide access to course request materials for the 2021-2022 school year and to help students plan and make decisions for courses in their educational career plan.
This site is intended to provide information related to the course request process at LHS. Beginning in November, School Counselors will meet with students to discuss courses for the 2021-2022 school year. In January, school counselors from Liberty High School will visit Oklahoma Road Middle School to meet with 8th grade students and guide them through the course request process. An evening program will also be available to 8th grade parents about course registrations in January to review the process. On February 10, 2021, we will hold an informational night for the class of 2025 when parents will be able to visit each department in virtual sessions to learn about courses offered in each department.
This site offers information for each grade level for parents and students to see all that LHS has to offer! Please visit your student's grade level to assist in making decisions about course requests and educational planning leading to college and career readiness for each student.
From Requests to Scheduling—Frequently Asked Questions
Are the course requests the classes I will be taking? Yes and no. The course requests represent the classes that students would like to take. However, there are courses requested each year that do not have sufficient requests in order to run. A majority of students receive all of the courses requested. However, there are some who need to make replacement choices or receive alternate courses.
Why does my student need to choose alternate courses? Alternate courses are selected so that in the event a requested course does not run or will not fit into a student’s schedule we are able to substitute a course in its place. It is important that all alternate courses are classes the student would be willing to take if scheduled.
How many students need to request a course for it to run? Each year we are given a number of available staff for the building. We build our schedule to maximize course offerings. If there is a significant interest and available staff we will make every effort to run a course.
How can I see course requests? Course requests are available in Home Access Center in early February. An email alert will be sent home when course requests are available to view.
When will my student receive his/her schedule? Building a master schedule is a process. It takes approximately 2 months to build our school’s master schedule. Our goal is to have student schedules ready for distribution by the conclusion of the school year, but they will be available to view in Home Access Center in early August. If a schedule change is required, there is a form and only certain circumstances to honor a schedule change.
