Students…registration is here for the 2015-2016 school year. As you have heard, CRCSD is moving to Semesters rather than trimesters, which means registration will be changing. Here is what you need to know RIGHT NOW:
- We will be having class meetings that are absolutely mandatory and necessary to attend during SMART Lunch A in the Auditorium:
- Juniors January 26th
- Sophomores February 2nd
- Freshman February 9th
- You will have 4 days following your class meeting to get all of your recommendations from your core teachers. During that time, you must also go onto PowerSchool and register the classes that you have been recommended for and have circled on your registration sheet.
- Course selection reviews will be held in computer labs during SMART Lunch the following week. You will be assigned to a time and date and computer lab by HOMEROOM. These will be announced and posted soon - you need to pay attention to when and where you go.
Registration is your responsibility. Failure to complete the process correctly may result in classes being closed/unavailable to you. If you have questions before your class meeting, please see Mr. Kline, Mr. Johnson, or your counselor.
