    Next Steps

     

    • We cannot guarantee you will be given your electives of choice.
    • An elective request may not be granted based on number of students interested and number of teachers/rooms available.
    • We WILL do our best to honor your requests. Don’t choose alternates you wouldn’t actually want to take next year. If you choose no electives and no alternates, the computer will choose electives for you.
    • If you don’t choose PE, but don’t complete a waiver either, this will override any of your decisions and you WILL have to take PE.

    What to do Next

  • Ask your student for the Electives Registration Worksheet
  • Complete it with your student.
  • Parent/guardian signature is required
  • Stow the *completed* form in your student's binder until the counselors come to their science class to do the online portion with with them.
  • If your student didn't get an Electives Registration Worksheet, email our Registrar Toni Morgan at tmmorgan@seattleschools.org
