Class Changes for 2017-2018 School Year

Students and parents who are wanting to request a schedule change can do so after school on the designated times and dates (see below). Parents are more than welcomed to accompany their student, but it is not required. 

Class changes are dependent on class capacity and seat availability. Class changes are considered after the third day of school to best account for our overall enrollment. 

Please be advised that we will not do changes for:
1) teacher changes - unless you have had the teacher in the past and earned a D/F in the course
2) period changes

We will only honor changes for:
1) classes that differ from original request
2) incorrect course level - for example, student is a 9th grader in 10th grade classes  (students should see counselor immediately during period of conflict)
3) missing or double periods (students should see counselor immediately during period of conflict)
4) student is taking a course they already took - for example, a student is enrolled in Chemistry but already took the course (students should see counselor immediately during period of conflict)

How many spaces are available at each location? Check out the list at the next link:

Why attend the CyberCamp?
Do you have an interest in cybersecurity and computers? Are you a beginner and would like to learn more about securing networks and hardening Operating Systems? The CyberCamp is the perfect first step towards learning more about cybersecurity!

Do I need any special skills or previous knowledge to attend the CyberCamp?
Camp attendees do not need to have any special skill set to participate in the CyberCamp. Some very basic knowledge of computer hardware (knowing how to use a mouse, start a monitor, can identify Windows start button icon, etc.) is helpful but not necessary. A basic English reading level is essential as many individual and group labs and activities are written directives and students must work alone and with small groups to accomplish tasks. The most important skill to possess is the passion to learn and a positive attitude!
