Wednesday is Verification Day (formerly known as Registration Day) – an opportunity for students to review and make adjustments to their course selections for the 2016-2017 school year. At this stage, many students have already thought a lot about the courses that they wish to take next year and have worked with their teachers, counselors, and parents or guardians to choose them. Verification day will allow student to:
- Double check that the correct courses have been requested,
- Add alternates and link each one to the course that it can replace,
- Make sure that enough courses have been requested (minimum of 24 blocks per semester and maximum of 28),
- and prioritize course selections by ranking them.
It is very important to note that Newton South builds its master schedule and staffs its faculty to accommodate student requests as much as possible. This will be the last opportunity to make changes to course requests before this process begins. After Verification Day, options for students when requesting class changes will be very limited.
You are still able to view student requests on Skyward’s Family and Student Access. Please log in, review the course requests currently in place, and discuss any changes that need to be made in preparation for Verification Day on Wednesday.
Thank you so much for your help during this important process.
