Course Registration Meetings for Students and Parents

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

Students, Parents, and Guardians,

It is our pleasure to extend an invitation to all students, parents, and guardians to attend a special meeting regarding the 2012-2013 course registration process.  Again this year, we will have separate meetings for rising 9th graders and rising 10th - 12th graders. These very important meetings will be held Thursday January 19, 2012 beginning @ 6:00pm (for rising 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students) and Tuesday January 24, 2012 (for rising 9th grade students). Both meetings will be held in the auditorium at DFHS. Below you will find links to both course catalogs for your preparation.

Center for Advanced Technical Studies

During these meetings we will discuss the process students will follow in order to register for their classes.  Additionally, during both meetings, Dr. Bob Couch (Director of the Center for Advanced Technical Studies) will be present to highlight and explain our district wide, new and innovative program offerings for the Center for Advanced  Technical Studies. Finally, during both meetings, we will relay important information about program requirements, attendance guidelines, school and district policies, practices, and procedures that will assist students in having a successful high school experience.

As a component of the January 24th 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 10th @ 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 encouraged 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.
