There are different components of the scheduling process for each grade level. 8th graders (rising 9th) are typically done with their scheduling requests by early in February. Changes in class recommendations can still be done after the scheduling for rising 9th graders has concluded. Changes are forwarded to the Heritage High School Guidance Department.
8th Grade Parents
You are cordially invited to
Heritage High School Media Center-TBD
For a meeting about high school planning. At that time Mr. Jason Jamerson, the guidance director from Heritage High School, will be available to talk about high school courses and the transition of eighth graders to high school.
This is a very crucial phase in your son/daughter’s educational planning. We encourage you to make arrangements to attend the session. Students are invited to the meeting. The high school counselors will also be presenting to your child about their transition to high school during their Civics class on date to be determined.
Sandusky Middle School counselors will be meeting with eighth graders, through their English classes, to plan their course of study for ninth grade. A copy of your student’s proposed schedule selections will be sent home after that time for your signature.
This will help ensure that your child will have a schedule they want at Heritage High School for the upcoming school year.
6th and 7th Grade
6th and 7th grade students choose their elective classes for next year in March. Teacher recommendations and the student's elective choices will then be sent home for parent approval. Any necessary revisions to recommendations are requested from teachers after students take their SOL tests.
For all students, recommendations are sought from academic instructors and based upon performance, effort, as well as grades. Changes to these recommendations are rare, but do come about from parent requests. It is asked that parents request changes in writing, to the attention of the guidance office.
Schedule changes are granted when adequate information can be provided to justify such requests. Many times, requests to change a teacher's recommendation will be forwarded to the building principal for review and approval before the request can be honored.
