Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of current 9th, 10th and 11th graders:
It is hard to believe, but Monday, January 27th is the last day of our first semester. With our new semester underway, it is now time to look forward to the course registration process for the 2020-2021 school year. As you may know, our course registration process occurs electronically using Power School. The purpose of this parent alert is that we will begin this process with your student’s Monday during school.
Canton High School students have received a great deal of information about this process through communication with teachers, school counselors and administration and we are excited about the opportunity for families to be involved in this important process. If you have questions regarding specific courses and overall course options, please review Canton High Schools Program of Studies.
Monday, January 27th during our CHAT, students will be given the opportunity to select courses utilizing our electronic course registration process. Students will view recommendations and choose both core subject area and elective courses. Please know, these selections are NOT FINAL. The goal is to have parents and students review these submissions together and make changes if necessary. The electronic portal will open on January 27th and remain active to give students/families the opportunity to re-submit as many times as they wish. It is expected that all students will complete their registration process and make all final submissions by February 7, 2020. Selections would then be final and the window will close.
Login Information: To register via the portal, you must Login using your child’s username and password at sis.cantonschools.org/public. Most students actively use this account and know their name and password. However, if there are issues with accessing the username & password, contact my administrative assistant, Donna Miscikoski, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at (860)-693-7707.

Waiving of a recommendation:
If you disagree with a specific teacher recommendation and would like to “override” a teacher recommendation, students can access a “Request for Course Recommendation Override” form directly from their school counselor. It is important the student meets directly with their counselor to initiate this process. Override forms will be honored through Monday, February 24.
Please know that we stand ready to assist you in any way as you work through the course registration process.
