RVHS Course Selection

COURSE SELECTION PROCESS

NOTE: The Academic Planner has been turned off. Students should submit the course selection form as soon as possible.

Current Teachers Enter Suggested Next Courses

Students' current English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and World Language (if applicable) teachers will enter the suggested next course in each subject. These recommendations will be available for strudents to view in Campus > Academic plan prior to your meeting with Counselors (see Step 2).

  • Core courses for 8th graders at Wayne Carle will be entered differently into Campus, so Wayne Carle students will not see recommended core courses in Campus. Students can visit with their current teachers about recommendations for next year. Student preferences will be entered on the paper Course Selection form and RVHS staff will enter these choices into Campus for Math, Language Arts, Social Studies, Science.

Receive Forms & Info from Counselors

In English/Lang Arts classes, current RVHS students will receive Course Selection forms and information about electives from Counselors. Skip to forms. Counselors will present information about choosing classes and will show students how to view teachers’ suggested placements in the Academic Plan tab in Campus. Current 8th graders at feeder schools will receive this information at their middle schools. If not attending a feeder school, join us at the Incoming 9th Grade Information Night on Feb. 22nd or use our online resources to get this information.

Choose & Enter Electives, Meet with Counselor

All students will enter elective course choices in Campus > Academic Plan* and on their Course Selection paper forms. In English classes (current RV students), students will meet with their counselors to discuss elective choices and confirm teacher suggested placements for ELA, Math, Social Studies, Science & World Language (if applicable). Incoming 9th graders (current 8th graders) are welcome to contact RVHS Counselors with questions about placements or courses. Contact information is provided near the bottom of this webpage.

* Now that all students have met with counselors, Academic Plan has been turned off. Any elective changes should be made on the paper course forms moving forward.

Get Signatures

Students will discuss their course choices with parents and have parents sign their paper forms. If the Course Registration Guide indicates that any chosen electives require teacher approval, students will need to get those signatures.

Turn in Forms

Students will turn their paper course forms into the Counseling Center (if a current RV student). If students have changed any elective choices since they met with their counselor, they should note those changes in a red or brightly-colored pen on the paper Course Selection form, and update their elective choices in Campus > Academic Plan. If a current 8th grader attending a feeder school, forms will be collected at each middle school. If a student does not attend a feeder middle school, forms should be dropped off at the RVHS Counseling Center.

Make sure you've filled out the online AP/Honors Agreement if taking any AP/Honors classes next year.
