Scheduling Process Explained
Near the end of the school year, each student meets with their counselor to go over scheduling of classes for the upcoming school year.  Students choose and rank order elective classes in which they have an interest.  Core classes are mandatory such as Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies; while placement in others is based on test scores and teacher recommendation, these classes then become mandatory as well.  Students in Band, Orchestra, Choir or Show Choir interested in continuing are placed in those classes.

After meeting with each student, counselors input requests into the DASL student system indicating which classes are mandatory and the rank order of the electives.  Once this is done, the scheduling program is run filling in the mandatory classes first then filling in the elective classes.  Due to class size and availability of electives, students do not always receive their first or even second choice.  It is possible for a student to be placed in an elective class which was ranked as a four or five.  Often times, a student will ask to drop a class; this isn't possible for many reasons.  Either the class is required or there simply isn't another class open.

If you have questions about the scheduling process, please do not hesitate to contact the Counseling Department at Pleasant Run Middle School.
