Future Course Requests/Selection

  • I will begin sending out a daily "Counselor Tip of the Day" messages to the scholars through Google Classroom. This will be comprised of different information pertaining to social-emotional learning, college prep, career interests and community updates. Be on the lookout!
  • I will also host a Google Hangout every Friday at noon for scholars to login and talk about stressors, everyday life and future plans. Please encourage your scholar to log on!
  • An email was sent out earlier from Duncanville High School’s Lead Counselor, regarding future course selection. Due to the nature of the Collegiate Academy program, our scholars do not follow that same process. Our course pathway is very specific and follows the alignment of the DCCCD Associate program so that scholars are able to complete both the high school diploma and associates degree by the end of their 12th grade year. In an effort to meet those demands, I must schedule scholars within a strict guideline. Therefore, for 9th grade I have completed the future course selection but will meet with them at the end of the semester with specific extracurricular requests.
  • For 10th and 11th graders, I will complete their schedule requests by the end of the semester once the Mountain View Fall course catalog is released. Their schedules are based on the Mountain View schedule.
  • Please disregard the messages from the Duncanville High School email regarding future course selection.
  • If your scholar has specific requests for their schedule for next year, please have them email me directly.
