Lets take a break for some FAQ. Who is on the new plan and who is on the old plan? Can I switch graduation plans? Are endorsements like selecting a major? Will every endorsement be offered? Can my kiddos get multiple endorsements? If I am a All Around student, does that mean that I cannot take Ag?
What do we do now?

More FAQ? STEM Newton: Math Emphasis will require a student to be enrolled in Algebra I in the 8 th grade. Safeguard: Social studies class taken in the 9 th grade. Can I switch endorsements at anytime? What other math classes are available if my child is not interested in Algebra II? ?????
