Students & Parents,
As we all navigate these unique and challenging times, East Palestine High School remains committed to serving our students through electronic means and distance learning. East Palestine High School is also attempting to balance the immediate and long-term needs of our students during this difficult time. One of the more important long-term needs impacting students is class scheduling for the 2020-21 school year. Prior to the governor’s school closure mandate, high school students were set to go through the class scheduling process this week. In order to keep this process on track to begin next school year, the high school will now begin this process electronically or in hard copy format rather than waiting for school to resume. Much like the interim assignments students are currently working on, hard copies of these course scheduling documents will be made available for students at the community distribution sites and within the high school office.
Please keep in mind, enrollment for classes is not determined on a “first come, first serve” basis but rather by weighing the graduation needs of each student. It is rare that a class is filled and/or closed for students. It is more likely that some classes simply do not fit within the individual student’s schedule due to other class needs or wants. Therefore, please be thorough and intentional as you select your classes. If you should have any questions about this process, please contact Mr. Rook (email@example.com), Mr. Cyrus (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Mrs. Sherry (Elizabeth.email@example.com). We are here to support you during this process.
Current students in Grades 8-11 should follow the steps found below to begin selecting their classes for 2020-21. Link to get started: https://www.myepschools.org/o/ephs/page/course-registration-ephs
Step 1: Read and then review the complete East Palestine High School Course Registration Guide (2020-21). This guide includes a description of all the courses available to high school students and outlines course and graduation requirements, academic distinctions and honors, and other important information.
Step 2: On the Course Registration Guide Worksheet (2020-21), complete the information at the top, which includes your name, grade, etc. Then, select those courses in which you would like to enroll for next school year by following the directions in the header for each subject. This can be done by clicking the box next to a course or by placing a check mark within the box if you are completing the worksheet in hard copy format.
Step 3: Double check your work. On the Course Registration Guide Worksheet (2020-21), students should have selected a minimum of 5 course credits. Credit information for each course can be found next to the course name. Students participating in the College Credit Plus program or attending the career center will have less than 5 course credits. Add up your total course credits and place this total on the top of your Course Registration Guide Worksheet (2020-21) in the space provided.
Step 4: Students should review their class selections with their parents and have them sign or type their name on the top of the Course Registration Guide Worksheet (2020-21).
Step 5: Save and then email your completed Course Registration Guide Worksheet (2020-21) to Mr. Rook or drop off your completed worksheet in hard copy format at one of the community distribution sites or the high school office.
Course Registration Guide Worksheets (2020-21) are due by Monday, April 27. Completed forms can be submitted electronically to Mr. Rook or if using hard copy format, to one of the community distributions sites or the high school office. You are encouraged to submit the course registration guide worksheet prior to this due date if possible.
Thank you for your flexibility and cooperation during this process.
