Administrators will ensure all students are registered and enrolled through the school counseling department in collaboration with teachers/advisors. See also Welcome Center information. If a student enrolls after a course has started, attendance counts from the first day of the course, not from the day the student enrolls. Students transferring from another school and /or students transferring from one course section into another course section of the same level receive credit for the days attended in the previous school or course. Students transferring from another school receive credit for previously completed coursework whenever comparable.
Students are encouraged to register for courses that provide the highest level of academic challenge, meeting their abilities based on available data, recommendation by a teacher and/or school counselor in the core instructional areas of English, math, social studies and science. Parents, teachers, and school counselors are encouraged to offer positive guidance and direction in assisting a student in establishing goals and making realistic choices. If a student and their parent select a course level that is not recommended by a teacher or school counselor, the parent will be asked to sign a waiver of the recommendation that indicates the preferred course level.
It is the policy of Beaufort County Schools not to discriminate on the basis of age, sex, race, religion, handicap, or national origin in its educational program activities, which includes the selection of classes.
School counselors/advisers will hold group meetings to distribute and discuss registration materials and the registration process.
It is imperative that students read the curriculum guide and discuss course plans with parents and guardians. Students need to select courses that will help them meet their goals in life.
Please keep in mind that some courses have prerequisites. For example, Spanish I is a prerequisite for Spanish II. Make certain that you read the curriculum guide carefully and pay close attention to prerequisites.
