No matter what grade a student is in, they (with the help of a parent/guardian) need to make sure that they are on track for graduation.  This means recovering credit for classes that were not passed and meeting minimum credit requirements at the end of each school year.  The earlier that credit deficits are discovered, the quicker it is to correct the problem so  they can graduate on time.

 

HOW TO CHECK IF ARE YOU ON TRACK FOR GRADUATION:
  1. Check your transcript to see your past courses, grades, and credits:  Infinite Campus - go to Reports, Click on Transcript
  2. Check to see if you have required classes completed -  Click Here To See Minimum Graduation Requirements
  3. Add your total number of completed credits to what you are taking this semester.
Juniors need to have 16.5 Credits completed by the end of this year to be on track for graduation.
Sophomores  need to have 10 Credits completed by the end of the year to be on track for graduation.
Freshman need to have 5 Credits completed by the end of the year to be on track for graduation.

 

IF YOU ARE SHORT CREDITS, FAILED A CLASS, OR MISSING A REQUIRED CLASS; CONTACT YOUR COUNSELOR AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!  We can put together a credit recovery plan so you can graduate with your class.  Not sure who to contact?  Click Here

 

In addition to making sure you graduate on time, high school is also a place to prepare you for the future.  Whether you want to go immediately into the workforce after graduation, join the military, get some technical training, begin an apprenticeship, or go onto college.  We have classes - FREE CLASSES - in a variety of fields for you to explore or get the training that you need.  In addition, you can earn credits for college or technical school while in high school.

In addition to the core (Math - Science - English - Social Studies) students must take each year, there is also room in their six period per day schedule to take electives.  All students need a total of seven electives for graduation.  Any class that is not listed on the Minimum Credit Requirements Sheet is considered an elective.  For example, taking choir more than one year - art/music requirement is one year, additional years fall into the elective credit category.  Classes such as World Language that are required to attend a four year college but not for high school graduation also fall into the elective category.

HOW TO REGISTER FOR CLASSES IN INFINITE CAMPUS

Before you start...

  • Please know that you are choosing classes not teachers or a schedule. Make sure to put in alternate choices because classes are subject to change after you register. 
  • If you are considering an Honors or AP class, know that they are rigorous! We recommend that you only pursue these options if you got an A or B in that subject this year.  Also, the Commitment Agreement is in place for all Honors and Advanced Placement courses which means that you must remain in the course all year no matter how difficult it becomes.  Talk to your current teacher to see what class they recommend. 
  • If you are planning to apply for PSEO, sign up for Denfeld classes.  It is easier to drop them later on than add if you aren't able to get the college courses that you would like.
  • You need at least 4 classes to be considered a full-time student (and to play sports!). Study halls do not count.  They do not give you credit and will be primarily used for credit recovery or tutoring.
  • You need to make sure that you register for both semesters which means you will have 12 classes unless you selected CTE courses which are two hour blocks.  You need a minimum of four classes each semester.
  • You will register in your Infinite Campus Account.  The registration window will be open from March 2nd - March 23.
  • Use your completed worksheet and list of classes when you go into register so you don't forget anything.
