Frequently Asked Questions
- Reasons to visit your counselor
All students are encouraged to visit with their counselor for any of a variety of services. These include academic assistance, scheduling, planning for the
future, relationships with others (friends, family, etc.), and life
situations that are occurring inside or outside of school.
- When can I see my counselor?
It is best is to visit your
counselor before / after school or during your lunch. If your counselor is out, please leave a note and your counselor will contact you.
- I’m a parent / guardian. How do I find out what my student’s grades are?
best thing to do is to get in contact with the teacher by email or
phone because they will have the most up to date information. Many even
have websites that allow grades to be checked using the internet. Parents are also encourage to utilize ParentVUE to access student grades.
- How can I change my schedule/drop a class?
changes will only be made during the first 7 days of each semester for
students who are placed in the wrong level of class, for those who are
missing a class, or those who need a class to graduate. Any class
dropped after the first 7 days of a semester will result in a grade of
W/F which will impact a student’s grade point average. Schedules will not
be changed for teacher or lunch time preference. If you do feel that you
meet the above criteria for getting a schedule change or if you have a
special circumstance, you can speak with your counselor and he/she will
give you more information on the process.
- What are the options if a student needs extra help?
first step is to talk to your teachers. Many are more than willing to
spend some extra time to help students. Some departments also
offer small group tutoring on certain days during the week. In
addition to your teachers, your counselor will also have some
information on possible students who are willing to be one-on-one
tutors. Be sure to utilize your extended period when available.
Students should email their teachers directly to collect homework. ParentVUE and StudentVUE provides teacher's names and emails. Homework can be picked up in the main office. Be sure to call Attendance: 503.259.5407 with all absences.
