Each semester class earns a student a half credit (.5 credit) as long as the student passes the class. 1 Semester =.5 credit. 1 Year = 1 credit. Failing a class earns 0 credits.
School begins at 7:30 a.m. There are 7 periods in the day with one of them being lunch (4 th or 5 th hour). That means that students take 6 classes. School gets out at 2:30 p.m., except for early release Wednesdays (1:30 p.m. release time). A hour classes are offered, however we do not recommend this for freshmen. Marching band is the only 8 th hour class offered at this time.

AP is a college level course in high school. AP uses a college-level textbook and requires advanced reading and writing skills. AP World History is a 50% writing course. AP allows opportunity to take exam for college credit. Students should talk with 8 th grade social studies teacher to see if this is a good fit for them.

Electives are any class you take that is not counting as a graduation requirement for another subject. If you plan on going straight to a university after high school, you should take two years of the same Modern Language. This, however, is not a graduation requirement.

The course selections you make now will help drive the master schedule. What does this mean? We hire our teachers based on the requests you make. Once we build the master schedule, we can’t make many changes. That is why we won’t make many schedule changes over the summer and as school starts. Choose wisely!
Please review ALL directions before completing your registration sheet and prior to entering data in the Infinite Campus system – Thank You!
To access the Course Description Catalog: go to www.gilbertschools.net click on “For Parents” click on “Course Description Books – Secondary”www.gilbertschools.net
In addition to the on-line Course Description Books, students also have a Course Listing Form to use as a quick reference.
Some courses require an Application, Audition, or Teacher Approval for final enrollment. Any time you see an “A” listed, your enrollment request will be contingent upon final approval from the instructor. Dance, Student Council, Advanced Theatre, Biomed and GC 105 are some examples of these types of classes. If you are an athlete and would like to request a sports training class, please select the course number that matches your primary sport. If your specific sport is not listed, please request the PE230A/B Sports Training—Any Sport Not Listed Below

Students were given a copy of this form during their registration presentation on campus. Use this form as a worksheet while searching the course catalog and selecting courses. It will be important to record Course Numbers and Names for BOTH semesters. This will be critical for the online registration portion of the process! Students will be required to turn in this form with their online course print out -- so hang on to this form!!
When entering course request for a year long course, you will need to enter the course number followed by an “A” for semester one and the course number followed by a “B” for semester two. See highlighted examples above. Only year-long course will have an “A” and a “B” This will be important information to have recorded accurately when you begin requesting your course through the online student portal!
To request an A-Hour, rather than requesting a specific class, students will need to select an additional course and place that course request in slot #8 as shown below (green highlight) When entering courses in the Infinite Campus Portal, students will enter the course number(s) listed in slot #8 AND will also enter the course code AHOUR (this process will be outlined in more detail in the Student Portal section)
Remember to select and record at least 4 alternate courses. You enter these courses the same way you entered your selections on the top of the form. Please select courses that you have an interest in and are willing to take. Not all course requests can be honored and we often have to schedule students into their alternate courses, so choose carefully. Keep in mind, if you don’t choose alternates, we choose them for you.
Have you selected enough courses? If you have a semester long course, have you selected another semester long course for the other half of the year? Have you entered course numbers for each of your courses each semester? Have you included the “A” and “B” on the course numbers of your year long courses? Have you selected alternate courses? Have you recorded the course numbers, including “A” and “B” on your alternates? Have you selected an additional course (slot #8) if you are requesting an A- Hour?
Search for courses using the course number only (do not enter any information in the course name box!) Refer to the Course Selection Form that you completed prior to logging into the Student Portal. Find the course number for the first class you would like to request. Enter that course number in the space provided. Don’t forget to include the A or B for each semester of a year long course. Click “Go” after you enter your course request.
After clicking “go,” the course you have requested will appear to the right under the heading Select a course to view The screen below will appear. To finalize your course request, simply click the Request this Course button. Click on the course number under Select a course to view … 15-16 Course Registration: 15-16 Campo Verde High School

Requests for release time must be entered using the same process as all other courses.

Alternate course requests will appear under the Alternate Courses section. Please make sure you select a total of 8 units for alternates (4 semester one and 4 semester two courses) Important Reminders: Students were given a Course Listing Form that includes all courses offered at CVHS. This form also includes the course numbers for release time, release time for OCI and lunch. Enter those options just as you would any other year-long course (lunch has been pre-entered for grades 9-11). Carefully check your request for A-hour. Make sure you have included an additional course (units need to indicate 16/18 course requests) AND you have also entered the AHOUR code as a course request. You must enter BOTH course codes or your request will not be submitted. If you select a class that you really did not want to request, simply click on the course name as it appears on the Requested Courses list. A pop-up option to drop the class will appear.
