Canton High News

As you may know, in August when your student returns to school, Canton High School will have a new modified schedule that will include an 8 period day. There are several goals with this new schedule.  First, it will give students opportunities for additional electives which will allow for the attainment of 25 credits which are required for graduation beginning with the class of 2019.  Also, it should prove to reduce scheduling conflicts and provide more opportunities for student internships, VHS courses and is in alignment with the state graduation requirement that all students earn a credit in Senior Capstone. 

As we have done in previous years, all students will participate in our CHAT (Canton High Advisory Time) each Wednesday.  Student lunch periods have been scheduled into D, E, F or G period. 

Mon, Tues*, Thurs, Fri

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 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 or call at (860)-693-7707.
