Prairie Valley School Division utilizes a common course selection process for students currently in grades 9 to 11. This process provides students an opportunity to identify their course interests thus influencing what courses might be offered in the next school year. Their selections also influence programming for those schools involved in magnet programming within their region.
The first part of the process will take place from January 9-23. Career counsellors in the schools will present course information to all students in grades 9 to 11. Students will then complete their course interest survey, on-line, through Career Cruising. Instruction sheets for the interest surveys will be posted on each school’s website. Once students have submitted their choices, they are required to return a signed copy of these choices to their school. It is important to note that this is only a student interest survey and final course registrations will be completed in early spring.
The survey results will help determine which courses could potentially be offered in schools, in various regions or by distance education. Facility, technology, staffing and transportation needs are all considered when determining what the final course offerings will be, therefore, it is very important that students make careful selections in the course interest surveys. Parents will be provided information prior to official course registration and will be involved when official class registrations occur. The process will be completed with students receiving a timetable prior to leaving for summer break.
We are excited to know what courses students are interested in and to begin planning for the 2013 - 2014 school year. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your school’s administration or the school career counsellor.
