Course Registration Informational Seminar for Students & Parents

By: Robert S. Jackson, Ed.S., Assistant Principal for Instruction

It is our pleasure to extend an invitation to all students and parents to attend a meeting regarding the 2011-2012 course registration process.  This very important meeting will be held Tuesday January 11, 2011 beginning @ 6:00pm (for rising 9th grade students) and 7:30pm (for rising 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students). Both meetings will be held in the auditorium at DFHS. 

During this meeting we will discuss the process students will follow in order to register for their classes.  During the 7:30pm meeting, a special highlight will be placed on the online registration process for rising 12th graders. In addition, during both meetings, we will relay important information about school and district policies that will assist students in having a successful high school experience.

As a component of the 6:00pm meeting, coordinators from all specialized programs (i.e., Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics @ DFHS and International Baccalaureate @ IHS), will share important information about enrollment criteria, scholarship benefits, ties to Advanced Placement coursework, and requirements leading to program completion. Parents and students who are interested in any of these programs are encouraged to attend this session. We will duplicate these sessions January 13th @ Irmo High School and January 25 @ Chapin Middle School.  

Our goal is to involve students and their parents in a guidance and advisement system that develops positive relationships and ensures completion of an accelerated program of study with an academic or career/technical concentration. Research indicates that when we provide this type of collaboration, student’s results improve. Again, we strongly urge you to attend this important informational session concerning the registration process. You are welcome to bring your student with you to the meeting.

Should you need any additional information, please feel free to contact us here at the school (803-476-3305) or contact your child’s counselor. Additionally, you can follow @ DFHAPI or @prinmorton on twitter for regular updates.
