3 Why is it important to input your course requests? A course for the school year will run based on the number of students that select it.If a course does not receive enough requests, it may be subject to cancellation.For example: If you are interested in taking Gr. 11 Co-operative Education (GWL3OC/GWL3O&) next year, you should include it in your course requests. If only a few students request it, it will likely be cancelled, and then you will be forced to choose another course to take in its place, from what is available.
4 Things to Remember!DO YOUR HOMEWORK IN PLANNING YOUR COURSE REQUESTSConsider all your options, and your strengths and interests.Keep in mind post-secondary prerequisites and pathways.Talk with your teachers, parents, counsellor, etc. if you have questions or are uncertain about something.Make sure you have the prerequisite course completed.If you have been unsuccessful in a compulsory course, make sure you include it in your course requests.PREPARE YOUR LIST OF COURSE REQUESTS BEFORE YOU GO ON-LINEUse the chart at the bottom of the Planner Sheet to record your choices.ONCE YOU CLICK “SUBMIT”, YOU ARE UNABLE TO CHANGE YOUR COURSE SELECTIONS.If you need to make a change, you must make an appointment with your guidance counsellor.
