Planning


High school offers students the opportunity to prepare for higher education, employment as well as explore a number of different courses of study in order to discover their interests and abilities. Students should choose a course of study that provides the greatest opportunity for the development of their own self-understanding and competence.

 

Guidance from counselors, teachers, and parents can aid students in discovering potential possibilities for a relevant high school program.

 

The new Washington State graduation requirements direct that all students graduating from a Washington State high school detail their plans for meeting the high school graduation requirements and what they expect to do one year after graduation in their Annual High School and Beyond Plan.

 

Course Selection (Forecasting)


Forecasting is a process whereby students select the classes they plan to take for the next academic year.

 

A great deal of time and thought should be used in making course decisions since the following school year’s master schedule is based upon the results of these selections.  Students will be held accountable for these choices.

Students should be certain to schedule all required courses (for their grade level) before selecting elective courses. They should also check to insure that they have met the prerequisites before selecting the next level in a course sequence.

 

*All Students enrolled in classes requiring the use of computers and students using the Battle Ground Public Schools (BGPS) network are required to have a signed Student Access Release Form. Guidelines and forms are available at registration or in the library.
