8th grade HS Scheduling Information

8th Grade Parents/Guardians,

Here is a link to an online version of our 9th grade scheduling form. It is under the school counselor tab on the school website. I've attached a copy of our course catalog. It can also be found on the school website under school counselor.

1. Students will need to mark the required classes (English, math, science, social studies). Students cannot take geometry unless they have taken algebra 1 and cannot take algebra 2 before geometry.

2. 2 semesters of physical education is a state requirement, but there is a board policy that may excuse a student for participation in other activities if a student chooses to use it. More information can be found Here under section 5460 Graduation Requirements.

3. Introduction to Business is a required course. It fulfills a financial literacy requirement. Students just need to take it by the time they graduate.

4. Students should try to fill at least 7 periods with classes. There are 9 periods in the school day. 1 period is automatically a lunch and 20 min study hall. 1 period can be a full study hall if they want one.

Please don't hesitate to reach out via email at lgrau@daltonlocal.org. I have also set up a Remind group that students/parents can use to contact me with questions. You can join my Remind class by texting @mrgrau20 to 81010 or downloading the Remind app and using the code @mrgrau20 to join the class.
