Counseling Updates

End of year grades

Please encourage your student to finish the year strong! We recommend that you and your student check their PowerSchool account to confirm they are on track in their classes and do not have any missing assignments, quizzes or tests.

Course Request Changes for 2021-22 school year

This past week students were given an opportunity to see their course requests for next year in their PowerSchool account and request changes on the google form. Today, Sunday, June 6th is the last day to complete the google form to request changes to core subject classes (English, math, science, history and LOTE ). Please have your student complete this google form now if they still want to request a change and have not done so yet. All submitted forms will be reviewed by counseling and changes will be made if the student meets the prerequisites, there is room in the class and it fits in their schedule. Changes made will be confirmed at Kick-off. All elective change requests will be accepted on a different form during Kick-off.

Summer School 2021

Summer school starts on June 21st. If you already submitted a summer school application, the district and/or summer school site will reach out to let your student know they have been signed up for summer school, the location and start time by June 18th. If you have questions about your student’s enrollment, you will need to contact the summer school site directly for information. If your student still needs to sign up for summer school, they should complete the application as soon as possible to secure a spot; space is limited! Information about summer school and the required application can be found on the SRHS counseling website summer school page.

Summer Enrichment Opportunities.

Summer enrichment programming is being offered by the district’s VAPA, CCTE, and community partners throughout June, July, and August 2021. Enrichment opportunities will include sports camps, STEAM-based experiences, access to UCSD Extension courses, and UC Scout online AP courses. There is limited space in the college and AP courses. All enrichment options will be available for enrollment on the Level Up SD website https://levelupsandiego.org/
