New Course Descriptions and Scheduling Process for 2012-2013
Students will be using the DASL Public Course Module to schedule their classes for the 2012-2013 school year online. The process was piloted with our current 9 th and 10 th grade students last school year. This year all students grades 8-11 will be using the program from home to schedule their classes. The scheduling process will begin on Monday, January 30 th, 2012. Each grade level will have its own class meeting with very specific instructions. Computers will be available in the Paw Stop during lunches on Thursdays during the month of February to assist students will any technical problems or answer any scheduling questions. ▪ The Media Center will be open during conferences on Feb. 23 rd, as well.
Utilizing the Public Course Module will: Give students the opportunity to experience online scheduling prior to entering college. Create more efficient time use of our guidance team. Tally student course requests and scheduling data quicker. ▪ Thereby, putting necessary data in the hands of the principal sooner. ▪ Our goal is to have the master schedule locked in by the end of April, allowing for counselors to address scheduling conflicts with students prior to the end of this school year.
