My name is Corrie Morris and I am joining Josh in the counseling department here at NEXT High School. Josh and I are excited for the Peers to get here. We hope to be of assistance to Peers in a variety of ways throughout this year. I know many of you have questions about our process for signing up for courses and IGPs (Individual Graduation Plans).
Many courses are predetermined by grade level. Peers are able to make schedule and content choices in areas of foreign language, electives, impact projects, and breakout seminars.
For the 2016-2017 school year (and future years) IGPs will be scheduled by the counselors around the middle of the school year. Parents will be invited to attend the meeting. The meeting will be a 15 minute conversation about the Peer’s goals, and conclude with choosing courses that will best help them reach their goals, specifically, graduation. I am excited to meet you all, see you in a couple of weeks!
