2019-2020 COURSE Registration Information
On-line registration for next year's classes will be available via Parent Portal March 6th - March 29th. There will be opportunities provided for student's to register during the school day mid-March with assistance from counselors, administrators and/or teachers. The 2018-2019 Program of Studies is available on the EVHS website, it can be found on both the EVHS and CCPS homepages. Our Curriculum Fair will be held March 6th 6pm-7:30pm in the EVHS cafeteria, in addition to reviewing the Program of Studies, visiting our Curriculum Fair is a great way to further explore course offerings and assist with your efforts regarding the registration process. Counselors also meet with current 9th, 10th and 11th grade students throughout the year to create and update their Academic & Career Plans (ACP). ACPs can be viewed within each student’s Naviance account. The ACP is a good guide of what to register for, but combine the ACP with teacher recommendations, current class performance and parent/student input, and solid decisions can be made! There will also be a Rising 9th Grade Orientation March 6th 6pm-6:30pm in the EVHS Auditorium. Rising 9th grade students and their parents (or transfer students of any grade level) are encouraged to join us for the presentation in the Auditorium before visiting the Curriculum Fair. Rising 9th grade students will also have the opportunity to visit EVHS during the school day on March 6th, look for information regarding that field trip to come from your student's middle school.
The registration process is a crucial piece in planning for your child's future success. Because the master schedule for each high school is created in late spring based on student requests and staff availability, changes after the end of school may be more difficult to obtain. Counselors and administrators take the following into consideration when reviewing schedule appeal requests once schedules have been distributed:
-Student's failure of a course which is a prerequisite for a schedule course or graduation requirement
-Change in the student’s educational plan
-Balancing of class sizes
-If the requested course has low enrollment and will not be offered
-An unbalanced schedule (too many academic courses in one semester)
-An alternate was used in your schedule and you'd like to have a different alternate listed from your registration
-You would like to raise to another level.
Commitments for staff, textbooks and supplies are made based upon the courses selected. Schedule changes will not be allowed without committee approval. The appeal process for schedule change requests takes place in August for the entire year's schedule. There will also be December/January appeal dates scheduled. The committee will review requests in the order that they are received.
Changes will NOT be considered if any of the following situations occur:
-It makes a class exceed the stated class cap
-It causes the number of enrollment in a class to fall below fifteen
-It is a course for which you do not have the prerequisite
-It is a request that changes your diploma type
-It is a request to drop a career/technical class which completes a sequence
-It is a request for a class that will not work in your schedule due to scheduling conflicts
-It is a request to change teacher
-It is a request to add a course that was not on your course request list
Students and parents are encouraged to review course registrations carefully. Please see your school counselor for assistance during this process.
