HONORS AND AP STUDENT SURVEY
As we prepare for course registration in the spring, we are seeking student feedback from students in Honors and AP courses on their experiences in order to provide more context for class choices for 2021-22. We hope this information will provide more background for class expectations, work load, and rigor in order to help students make informed decisions during course registration in January and February. Please complete the linked survey for each honors and AP course in which you are enrolled this year. The survey will close December 15 at 4:00 PM, and students will need to log in with their FCS credentials to complete the survey.

2nd SEMESTER SCHEDULE CHANGE INFO
As we begin preparing for the spring semester of the 2021-22 year, we want you to be aware of the procedures for requesting changes to schedules for the spring.
An electronic form will be available December 6-10 for schedule change requests for the Spring 2022 semester. Requests MUST be received by December 10 at 3:30 PM for consideration. After this date, changes will only be considered for extenuating circumstances.
We WILL consider changes for the following reasons:
- Senior needs the course to graduate
- Senior wants to take a reduced course load
- Student earned a 70 or below fall semester of Honors or AP and teacher recommends going down in level (only if it fits student schedule)
- New class that begins in January for the first time (i.e. Graphics I, Sociology, etc.)
We WILL NOT consider changes for the following reasons:
- Changing year-long electives
- Changing periods or teachers
- Changing from Milton (in-person) to FVS/GAVS (online) or online to in-person courses
- Moving to a lower level class but passed the fall semester
2022-2023 COURSE SELECTION TIMELINE
As we begin preparing for course registration for the 2022-23 year, we want you to be aware of the general timeline and changes coming to course registration in the spring.
Mid-January: Rising 9th Grade Night and Elective Fair
Late January: Core teachers enter academic recommendations for 22-23 year
Early February: Advisors and students enter elective choices for 22-23 year
Early February: Course verification sheets distributed to students; students can make any changes
Mid-February: Course verification forms due to counselors; no changes after this point
Mid-April: Second verification of courses, changes will only be honored for going down in academic level only, reduced load for seniors (if available), and dual enrollment
**Changes will only be considered for a very limited set of circumstances at the beginning of the 2022-23 school year, similar to the reasons listed for mid-April above. Please make course selections thoughtfully and carefully this spring.**
Students must enroll in FVS or GAVS classes during the general course registration period. Registration after that time (mid-February) will not be permitted. Students enrolled in FVS/GAVS classes must take the course(s) the first/last periods of the day (blocked together if multiple). Students cannot be on campus during their virtual class time and must provide their own transportation to/from school. Students and parents will be required to sign an online course contract to participate. Please note that if you are not a senior, parking is not guaranteed.
Students must strictly follow all dual enrollment deadlines in order to meet requirements for participation. Specific deadlines will be shared in coming weeks, but students can preview DE information, deadlines, and processes on the counseling office’s DE page: www.bit.ly/mhsdualenrollment. Students taking dual enrollment the first/last periods of the day cannot be on campus during their class time and must provide their own transportation to/from school.
We strongly encourage families to follow the recommendations of their current teachers for next year’s level placement, as they are experts in the content area and have seen the student’s work each day. If a student would like to waive into a higher level of a course (e.g. honors, AP), the student and parent will be required to sign an Honors/AP Course Waiver to be enrolled. Students will NOT be dropped from Honors/AP classes after the semester begins due to poor performance, stress, etc.
