Articulation 2021

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

What is articulation?

Counselors will post an Articulation video that includes information about the following year's courses, directions about how to input the course requests into PowerSchool and how to complete the Elective Choice Google Form.

 

The video along with the following supportive documents will be posted on each grade level page at the start of their articulation period (see dates to the right if viewing on a computer or below if viewing on a phone):  Articulation Card with all courses offered for each grade level and a handout with instructions to use as a reference. Students will also have access to the course descriptions with prerequisites as a resource when choosing courses. The course descriptions can be found under the Academics section on this website.

 

Students will have approximately a week to review all the information, input their first choice courses into PowerSchool and submit the Elective Choice google form.  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.

OPTIONAL: Counselors will offer follow-up meetings the next week (incoming 10th-12th grade students) in case a student has any questions or concerns about the classes they have chosen. Students will be able to sign up on this counseling website from the grade level page.

What you should consider when choosing classes:

  • Current grades in classes   (we use first semester grades to determine eligibility)

  • Prerequisites

  • Teacher Recommendation (Speak with current teacher and possibly a potential future teacher)

  • 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

Articulation Process:

TWO STEP PROCESS:

Student Portal Registration & Elective Choice Google Form

  1. Go to your student portal in Powerschool and request your courses under the Class Registration Section. Directions and prerequisites for classes are included on the site.                                                                                           

  2. Complete the Elective Choice Google Form.                       This form informs of us of your top 6 elective choices in case you do not get into the elective courses you have indicated in the student portal.

                    

Course descriptions & Prerequisites: found under "Academics" on this SRHS Counseling website  

Academic Teacher Recommendations: Teachers will provide the following year's course recommendations directly to the counselors.
