Scheduling 2021-2022


ACS Scheduling Week: December 7th through December 11th



It doesn’t seem possible, but it is time to start thinking about scheduling for next school year’s classes!


Due to the pandemic and limited face-to-face contact with students, the district is holding a virtual Scheduling Week.


Starting Monday, December 7th, students will be “assigned” to schedule for next year’s classes during their Social Studies. 


The deadline for your student to register for his/her classes is this Friday, December 11th.


Students will receive the following information in their school email on December 7th:

  • A Parent Letter
  • Highland Middle School Course Brochure
  • A Link to a Google Form to Select their Electives
  • A Student Data Card: using the students’ own data is the best way to insure students are placed in the appropriate classes.

All students will continue to take Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies each year at Highland.  As mentioned above, students will receive a data card.  This card lists all of the student's scores for iLearn, NWEA, and IXL, plus their Achieve Lexile score (reading level).  Based on these scores, some students may be required to take Reading (an all year course).  Also, some students will be placed in Advanced classes. 


If you chose for your student NOT to be placed in Advanced classes, please contact your student’s school counselor.
