Forest Lake High School Registration Process and Information for all Forest Lake High School Students
Introduction To Registration Careful registration for each year’s courses is very important. Schedules are created and staffing is assigned based on numbers of student requests. Be sure to choose carefully.
Introduction To Registration Beginning with the school year, NO student change requests will be accepted once the quarter begins.
Introduction To Registration Research the Minnesota Career Pathways/Clusters link found on the Forest Lake Area High School website. Identify a career cluster that interests you.
Introduction To Registration Choose courses that support future career decisions. Remember that high school is the time to prepare for future careers.
Introduction To Registration Make certain that courses chosen satisfy graduation requirements and provide adequate preparation for future plans. Remember, high school is far more than the end of education. It’s the beginning of the next steps.
Introduction To Registration Do not request courses already taken, or will be taken during the remainder of this school year. Credit is only awarded once per course. Make sure that all prerequisites are satisfied.
Introduction To Registration Ask questions of homeroom teachers and deans to guarantee that course requests are done accurately and appropriately. Study the registration information on the FLHS website to learn about requirements and prerequisites. Check out the FAQ’s pages.
Introduction To Registration The final responsibility for course selection rests entirely with students and parents or guardians. When in doubt, ASK.
Registration Notes Sign up for 14 classes, plus 3 alternates. Any spaces left empty will be chosen for you. Watch for prerequisites!
Registration Notes Do not sign up for a class that is not listed on your registration sheet. It will not count, and an alternate class will be used. Double Check your course numbers - 1 out of 4 students copy down the course number incorrectly and end up in the WRONG CLASS!
Schedule changes are only allowed for the following reasons and must be completed before the quarter begins: Student is missing a prerequisite for a class on his/her schedule. Student is lacking a class required for graduation or college admission. Student is academically misplaced.
Schedule Changes Continued... Students who meet the previous criteria may make schedule changes before the first day of the term. After fifteen (15) days into a term, a student who drops a course will receive a final grade of “F” for that course.
Registration Open House Actual registration will be done in an open house format from 4-8 pm on February 5 and February 9. Choose one of the nights to meet with your homeroom advisor. Go to a computer lab to meet your dean and do the actual course requests online.
Online Registration Enter all 14 course requests Double-check course numbers Do not enter alternates Leave course request worksheets with your dean
Registration, Final All students who bring their parent(s) to the registration open house and follow all directions will be given preference if courses fill. This does not guarantee that all course requests will be granted, however. It is far easier to do it right the first time.
Registration Help Session All parents and their students are invited to a help session in the high school media center at 6:30 pm on Thursday, January 29.
Introduction To Registration All registration materials and information can be found on the Forest Lake Area Website at Course request worksheets will be distributed to students the week of January 26. Registration Guide Handbooks will be available in student services for students without online access.
