Articulation 2022

Articulation is the process we use for students to choose their classes for the following school year. 

What is Articulation?

English teachers will show an Articulation video on January 24th or January 25th that includes information about the following year's courses and directions about how to input the course requests into the PowerSchool Student Portal.

The same day the video is shown, English teachers will give each student a support document as a resource to assist with choosing courses and an Articulation Course Requests Card.

The video along with the Support Document and Articulation Card will be posted on each grade level page  on January 26th after they have been shared in the English classes.

 

Students should view the course descriptions with prerequisites as a resource when choosing courses. The course descriptions can be found under the Academics section on this website. They will be updated for the 2022-23 school year on January 24th

Students will be given time during their English class on February 2nd & 3rd to input their course requests. 

Students must input their course requests into PowerSchool and submit their Articulation card to their English teacher by February 4th

FOLLOW-UP MEETINGS: After course requests are submitted, counselors will be meeting one-on-one with students during English class to discuss course choices and answer any questions or share concerns about the classes they have chosen.  (See dates on the right if you are on a desktop computer and below if you are on a phone/tablet.)

 

NOTE: Students will have approximately 2 weeks (one week for 8th graders) to review all the information, input their first choice courses into PowerSchool and submit their Articulation Card to their English Teacher.  See the next box down for what students should consider when choosing their courses. The courses a student requests could change if a student does not meet the prerequisite for the course (see course descriptions for prerequisites), if there is not enough room in a class or if the class does not fit in their schedule.  It is always the school's goal to get students into their first choice classes as long as they meet the prerequisites.  It is important students choose the courses they want most during the articulation process, because that is what we use to create a master schedule and gives them the best chance of getting into their desired courses.  If students change their mind later, a class could be full or the class may not fit in their schedule.

What you should consider when choosing classes:

  • Current grades in classes - We use first semester grades to determine eligibility.

  • Prerequisites - Previous course/s and/or grades needed to be setup for success in the class.

  • Teacher Recommendation - Speak with current teacher and possibly a potential future teacher if you want advice on choosing next year's class.

  • Overall workload of classes - Keep in mind outside of school commitments as well, i.e. sports, community service, job, family responsibilities, college applications, etc.

  • Future classes (will you need a class to meet the prerequisite for classes in a future year.)

  • College and/or major admissions requirements - This  information can be found on college websites under admissions. For specific majors you may need to view the webpage for that major.
