Course Selections

Course Selection is completed in February of every school year.

  All returning Westside students must complete their course selection for 2019-2020 by February 28th .  It is very important that students, along with their parents, make informed choices so that their next year’s timetable is a reflection of the student’s abilities, interests and graduation requirements.  Students are encouraged to speak to teachers and guidance about any questions they have about courses.  The decision students make about their course now, will determine what courses run next year and how our timetable looks.  Course offerings and course descriptions are available in myBlueprint.  Students will also be receiving a paper copy of course offerings and additional instructions.  All course selections must be completed through myBlueprint (which is available through the ugcloud).    Mr. Sippel and Mrs. Kirkland are glad to help students/parents in this process.
