2018-2019 Course Selection

By Abigail Christman

It’s that time of the year where current juniors, sophomores, and freshmen must pick their courses for the 2018-2019 school year! To access the course selection form students must login to the STSD community portal. All of the required courses are listed at the top of the form (english, math, social studies, science, and world languages), which are recommended by your current teacher. If students do not agree with their teachers recommendation they can click on “Special Request” and enter their concern or request. When the students are done choosing their core classes they can choose a physical education or health course. Students are required to graduate with two physical education courses and one health course, and students can only take one physical education class per year. After students are done choosing  their physical education courses they select their elective courses. Elective courses are listed by department and they will appear when you click on the specific department. To request primary courses you must click the box on the left, to choose the course as an alternative you must click the box on the right. Falcon Periods have no credits, students may choose up to five falcon periods per cycle. Falcon periods are scheduled study halls. Full day Salisbury High School students must have a total of 8 credits and SHS/LCTI students must have a total of 7 credits. In addition to having 8 credits you must choose 4-6 alternative courses.
