Course Selection Information

Frost students will receive presentations on 1/26 from Woodson and Annandale counselors. Frost students will then complete a Course Planning Tool on 1/28 in Falcon Focus, through the submission of a Google Form. A copy of their responses will be emailed to them.

Students will be given paper course selection sheets when they meet with their counselor and will have one week to complete and return to teachers. Please discuss course selection options with your student and review their course selection sheet carefully. Every 9th grade student will take English, Science, History, Math, PE, and two year long elective courses. Students will also list alternate elective courses.

Counselors will make every effort to follow the schedule below, but some dates may need to be adjusted. The order in which students are seen will not impact the timing of their course requests. Students receiving services through Special Education will complete initial course selections with their counselor, and finalize course placements with case managers at spring transition IEP meetings.
