1/31/2017 - CHS Course Registration Information for School Yr 2017-18

UPDATE:  DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FEB 13TH DUE TO RECENT SNOW CLOSINGS AND DELAYS

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of current 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th graders:

It is hard to believe, but as we are at the midway point in our school year, it is now time to look forward to the course registration process for the 2017-2018 school year. As you may know, our course registration process occurs electronically using Power School. The purpose of this parent alert is to provide you direction on our electronic course registration process that will open on Wednesday, February 1, 2017.

Both Canton High School and Middle 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.   If you have an incoming 9th grader and were unable to make last night’s presentation, we are linking the Powerpoint presentation for your review as well.

Registration Window:

Access for student registration will begin, February 1, 2017 at 3:00 pm and end on February 10, 2017 at 3:00 pm. This ten day window is purposeful as it affords families the opportunity to peruse the Program of Studies, review recommendations, discuss options and get any questions answered.  It is expected that all students will be registered by February 10, 2017.

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, Lorene Chellgren, at lchellgren@cantonschools.org or call at (860)-693-7707 ext. 7002.

Directions and tutorials:

Questions:

With regard to questions or concerns with core academic courses, please contact your student’s current academic teacher or department chair listed below. You are also encouraged to contact your student’s counselor with any questions or concerns throughout the process.

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 Tuesday, February 28.

 Please know that we stand ready to assist you in any as you work through the course registration process.
