Notes Related to Course Scheduling

Verifying Course Selections

We're reaching the point where the initial phase of construction for the 2011-12 master schedule is almost complete.  Most students have been scheduled into classes they initially selected back in February and March.  In years past, a list of course selections would be mailed home around this time each year for verification.  We'll soon be doing this again in about a week or so.  When you receive this information, be sure to review it for accuracy.  Students should contact their counselors immediately if they see mistakes on the list or wish to change anything on it.

Registration for Early College Experience (ECE) Courses

For students enrolled in ECE courses in the 2011-12 school year, they will need to complete a registration form by June 1 in order to be eligible to earn UConn credits.  The forms are available in the Guidance Office. They are also available on-line at the Early College Experience (ECE) web site (see below under "Helpful Links").  Failure to complete this registration form in a timely fashion will result in lost opportunity to earn free college credits (ECE Policy).  A minimum final grade of "C" is required in order to earn UConn credits.

If you're wondering which EOS courses are considered ECE courses as well, check the following list:

AD Biology (UC BIOL 1107)
AD Biology (UC BIOL 1108)

Course Planner

You may recall in a past blog entry entitled "Course Planner" that a feature has been added to Naviance that allows students to construct four-year plans of study based upon the selective category of schools they may wish to attend upon graduating from EOSHS.  This tool may be very helpful when deciding which courses to choose relative to postsecondary goals.  The tool may be found under the "Courses" tab in Family Connections.  Contact your counselor if you need help with this.
