Course Selection 2017-2018

Course selection instructions... ​

Core & Elective Classes

  • Students should select the Math, Science, Social Studies, English, and Wellness/Health/PE class appropriate to their grade level (see the Program of Studies).  Some students may choose to accelerate in a required area – see your counselor if you have questions about accelerating.

  • Students should refer to the Career Pathways Model in the Program of Studies when selecting elective classes.

 Credit Totals

Most students will select a total of 8 credits. Music students may have more (see below).  BCTC/TCHS students and students selecting the flexible scheduling option or off-campus dual enrollment may have less than 8 credits appear in HAC.


Music

All music classes are held during the same class period; therefore, students selecting multiple music ensembles will have a credit total that appears to be greater than eight throughout the course selection process.  The number of credits earned in each ensemble will ultimately be prorated so that they total 1.0 credit.

Music ensembles: Band | Chorus | Orchestra | Jazz Band | Marching Band

 

BCTC

Students should only select a BCTC course if they are enrolled or have been accepted into a BCTC program.  Contact your school counselor if you are unsure of your status. 

  • Current 8th grade students accepted into the career explorations program do not need to make a selection.

  • Current 8th-10th grade BCTC students should also select a Math, Science, Social Studies, and English class.

  • Current 11th grade BCTC students should select a Math, Social Studies, and English class as well as Health 10 and PE 11 for their senior year.

  • Students enrolled at TCHS should only select the courses taken at TVHS.

 

Internships

Students interested in an internship should select that class under the Business & Computer Technology Department.  Students will only be able to select one-half credit worth of internship; students interested in more than one credit of internship should see their counselor.

 

Alternates

Students should only select alternates for elective classes.  Current 8th grade students should indicate their preferred alternates on their course selection sheet – they will not be able to enter them into HAC.

 

Students and families with any scheduling-related concerns should contact their high school counselor.
