Grade 8 students: It’s time to select high school coursesFebruary 6, 2015 Category: NewsBack to News Page

​Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB)’s secondary schools are vibrant, inclusive learning environments offering dynamic courses and programs. Here is some information to help Grade 8 students and their parents plan for Grade 9.

Every year, starting in Grade 8 for their Grade 9 year, students choose their high school courses for the following September. The forms they fill out online are called Option Sheets, which are available on the SCDSB Student Portal.

Students currently in Grade 8 are being visited by SCDSB secondary school guidance staff throughout February. To read more about secondary school course selection, visit our Secondary Program Info page. All Grade 8 students and their families are encouraged to review student report card progress (distributed February 20) as part of the course selection decision-making process.

The SCDSB’s due date for Grade 8 students to finalize and confirm their Grade 9 course selections is March 13. Some schools may have earlier submission dates to review selections.

Visit the SCDSB website’s Student Success page for information on specialized programs offered at your local public secondary school. You can also find resources about transitioning to high school and planning your future on our website.
Contact your local public secondary school for more information. If you are a new student to Simcoe County or to the SCDSB, please contact your local public high school’s guidance department for a registration package.
