In preparation for the 2017-2018 school year, current 6th and 7th grade students will receive a Course Placement Recommendation form based upon multiple criteria, including classroom performance, student interest, and results on standardized measures. Look for the recommendation to come home with your student tomorrow, March 17. As we work together to provide students with the most challenging courses in which they can be successful, we are offering families the opportunity to make adjustments to the recommended academic program if they feel their students are demonstrating readiness for more advanced levels of instruction. After reviewing the Course Placement Recommendation form and the Middle School Course Catalog http://www.hcpss.org/f/academics/ms-catalog-2017-18.pdf , you wish to request changes in course placement, then please visit http://www.hcpss.org/academics/#ms-course-review to print out, complete, and return the Course Placement Review Form to Student Services by Friday, March 24. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your student’s school counselor at 410-313-5043.
