Course Selection Information for 2020-2021

For the 2020-2021 school year, high school course selection information will be available online and easily accessible as a section of the District web page. The transition from PDF file, the format you may remember from last year, to a website will allow for greater functionality of the interactive features included in our course selection guide.

Course selection information can be found on the website under the Curriculum header using the High School drop down link.

The District website is designed to fit content to any device (ex. computer monitors, laptops, Chromebooks, tablets, mobile phones, etc.) and can easily be translated into other languages. If you need additional assistance accessing the information, please do not hesitate to contact your child's school and ask to speak with a counselor.

Course Selection Night
Cedar Cliff and Red Land will each host a Course Selection Night on January 8, at 7 p.m. This evening is offered to assist you and your child in the course selection process. Staff will be available throughout the evening to answer your questions. So, prior to attending, you may find it helpful to review some of the information contained online about course offerings and credit requirements.
