Pittsboro, NC - Northwood High School is beginning its course registration process on Monday, February 27. Guidance counselors and Principal Joel County will be meeting with each grade level to review course of studies and pathways during the school day on Monday. Course registrations will be for the upcoming school year, which is divided into two semesters. The daily schedule in Chatham County high schools is divided into four class periods.

Current Northwood students will receive a registration form and bulletin to take home and review with parents/guardians. Parents should ask their students for these items Monday night. The registration bulletin can also be accessed on the Northwood web page. Students should have forms completed by March 6. Counselors will begin meeting with students through their fourth period classes to complete course registration during the month of March.

Northwood staff members have worked with staff, families, and students at feeder schools to provide foundations for high school registration. Northwood guidance counselors have met with eighth graders at Horton, Moncure, North Chatham, and Perry Harrison. Guidance counselors in feeder schools are now in the process of assisting rising ninth graders with course registrations.

Students who do not submit completed forms with course preferences will have their graduation requirements reviewed by the school and be assigned courses for the 2006-2007 school year.

“Because of the complexity of the scheduling process, it is essential that we push forward. It is very important that students carefully consider which classes they intend to take in order for us to be able to offer the best master schedule possible for everyone. Our goal is to help students make good choices now and avoid changes later in the stages of the scheduling process,” said County.

Course selections will be used to develop the 2006-2007 master schedule. Student schedules will then be created, printed, and sent home with students for a final review and signature by parents/guardians.
