Message to Parents/Guardians and Students
It is that time of the year that we begin the course selection process that will lead to your schedule for the 2020-21 school year. Over the next several weeks you will be actively involved in the course selection process. The faculty and counseling staff will gladly assist you in this selection process. We encourage you to take this process very seriously. Please consult with your parents, teachers, administrators and certainly your counselor to arrive at the most appropriate course selection possible.
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome the incoming ninth grade class to Donegal High School. This is the first of a series of activities to help ensure that you have a successful transition from the junior high school to the high school. As you look through the curriculum guide, you will see general information about our school, course selection sheets, a planning guide and specific course descriptions from each of our departments.
As you review the registration calendar, you will note there are deadlines to follow. Students, who wish to, will have the opportunity to meet individually with their counselors to schedule classes. We will work to maintain these deadlines so that, if possible, we can provide a tentative schedule for all students at the end of the current school year. The master schedule at Donegal High School is driven by student selection. As a result, our school staffing is determined by the selection of courses that our students make during this course selection process. It is imperative that you take the time and responsibility to select your courses wisely for the coming school year. Please read the course descriptions and understand what is expected for the courses you have selected. There will be no student initiated schedule changes after August 14, 2020.
If you have any questions or need further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact your counselor or the high school administration.
