Scheduling: Grade 8 to 9
Eighth grade teachers will finalize all course recommendations by 2/9/20. The scheduling portal opens to students on the following day and will remain open for two weeks.Please note, if a student is interested in overriding the teacher’s course recommendation, they must complete an OVERRIDE Request online using a GOOGLE Form (no more paper forms) by 2/14/20. Override requests will NOT be accepted after the deadline.Override Testing for ELA/SS will be on Wednesday 2/26/20 from 2:30 to 3:30 at Parker Middle School.Students can access their course recommendations by logging into X2,click on the horizontal “My Info” tab,then click on the “Requests” side tab which is on the left.Parents can access their child’s course recommendations by logging into X2,click on the horizontal “Family” tab,then click on the “Schedule” side tab which is on the left,and then click on “Requests”.Please review the Scheduling Instructions and Scheduling Worksheet for additional information. The “Grade 8 Scheduling Instructions” and the “Program of Studies” are available on the CHS Website.I encourage families to review the Program of Studies and know their elective choices before your student works with me on X2 in the computer lab. I will be in the lab with Team 8-1 and Team 8-2 on two separate scheduling days during the week of Feb 10th. I look forward to working with them on their high school schedules. :)Thank you,Melissa MacIsaacSchool Counselor (7th & 8th)
