PHS Course Selection & Program of Studies

 

The Course Selection Process for the 2024-25 school year is now upon us.  Please make note of the timeline below and reach out to your child's guidance counselor or a school administrator with any questions:

  • February 1 - 29 - Teachers will make course recommendations for students in PowerSchool.   Students can only select a course for which they have been recommended.  Students that disagree with a recommendation should meet with their teacher to discuss it.  Students and families can officially request an override through the content supervisor.  Please note the Level Override deadline below. 
  • February 14-16 - Course Selection Assemblies (in Titan Time) by grade level.  
  • February 29 - Course Selection Evening - Parents and caregivers should attend this informational night to learn about the Course Selection Process and course offerings.
