2019-2020 COURSE SELECTION
Course selection for the 19-20 school year has begun. Students received materials in their English class and met with their counselor individually to review their course choices, assess their transcript, discuss additional options (summer school), and finalize their selections.
Course selection forms were returned to those students who did not have parent/math teacher signatures. Students should take the steps necessary to complete their form and return it to their counselor as soon as possible.
The deadline to make course request changes for the 19-20 school year is March 8th. The course selection function is closed in StudentVUE/ParentVUE so students/parents will need to contact their student's guidance counselor to request changes before the March 8th deadline as changes will not be made after this time.
Parents: Students were provided with a copy of their transcript along with summer school information if it was recommended by their counselor or requested by the student. If you have not done so already, please check-in with your student to review these items. Summer school registration is open and is first-come, first-serve. For more information about summer school, please visit https://www.susd.org/index.php/programs/susd-summer-school.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your student's guidance counselor.
DUAL ENROLLMENT COLLEGE ENGLISH I & II
Students who will be seniors in 2019-2020 and plan to take College English I & II can qualify for the course one of two ways. If a student has a 2.6 overall GPA, they automatically qualify and do not need to take any additional steps. If a student's overall GPA is lower than 2.6, they must take a placement test and earn a score of 5 or higher to be approved for the class. Students who need to take the placement test will need to go down to SCC's testing center by April 3rd. Students will need to complete the steps listed HERE before taking their placement test at SCC. Once a student tests at SCC, they will need to bring the score printout that SCC provides to their counselor to be approved for the class. Students who do not test by April 3rd/do not submit their score to their counselor will not be able to take College English I & II and will need to choose between English IV and AP English Literature to meet their Senior English requirement.
If your student is looking for a student tutor, please have them stop by the Guidance Office and look through out Student Tutor Book. Here they can identify a peer(s) who may be able to tutor them and take down their contact information. If your student is looking to be tutored by an adult or organization, please see our Professional Tutor List.
If you are a student who would like to tutor other students, please complete the DMHS Student Tutor Form and return it to Ms. Jones in the Guidance Office.
