Curriculum information for the 2021-2022 school year
for rising sophomores
Over the next several weeks all students in the Central Bucks School District will be entering their course requests for the following year through the Infinite Campus Student Portal. Prior to entering course requests in Student Portal, we encourage students and their families to explore the robust curriculum that each of our departments has to offer.
All rising Sophomores must follow these instructions:
Between Thursday, Jan 7 and Sunday, Jan 10, 2021 watch the following videos (links in icons below), in order:
STEP 1: Guidance Department Overview, presented by your counselors, Ms. Barrett (A-L) and Mrs. Ladley (M-Z). They walk students through the program planning process, including how to enter courses into the Portal, scheduling considerations, and timelines.
STEP 2: AFTER watching the counselors' video, students should then click on the department icons (links below) to learn helpful information about required and elective course offerings. Department representatives will describe the courses available to rising sophomores, elective offerings within their department, sequencing information, differences in expectations/rigor for various levels, and provide answers to the most frequently asked questions in their department. If students have specific questions about course recommendations, they should reach out to their Middle School Counselor or current 9th grade teachers.
STEP 3: Refer to the small module boxes below "Program Planning- Start Here" for resources to assist you with entering course requests in Student Portal such as the Instructions, Block Scheduling Worksheet (to "visualize" what your schedule might look like), the Course Selection Sheet (which contains every course with their course codes for entry), Program of Studies, Timeline, and South Coordinator contact information.
STEP 4: Still have questions? Watch the Recorded Session held on January 12 where the South Principals and Counselors shared information about the South culture and answered parents' curriculum questions. This session was 1:05 hour in length.
