Need to know:
*****If you do not submit a course selection form your courses will be chosen for you and you will not be able to make changes.******
******You must choose 6 electives regardless of whether you plan to take electives at North Star or whether you need them. This helps to ensure we have a back up in case something changes. Please help your counselors as we are required to give you a full schedule.*****
Only submit your selection form once. If you have corrections, please webmail your counselor.
*****IMPORTANT: Schedule changes are not allowed the first 2 weeks of school due to enrollment and attendance tracking. Schedule changes are not allowed unless student is incorrectly placed in a course******
