Chosen Pen? What's Next...

  • Scheduling for Current PVPUSD 8th Graders
Scheduling for all students is complete. The Aeries portal window for students and parents to review course requests will only be open until Friday, May 8. If anything needs to be changed, you must notify your counselor of the requested change. If you selected a course for which you did not meet the pre-requisites per the course description handbook, you will have to fill out a Course Request Form and submit this to your counselor. You will not be placed in the course if you have not completed this step.  Changes can still be made to your course requests after May 8th by communicating directly to your counselor. 
For additional support in selecting your courses for next year, please review this PowerPoint that the counselors created and their FAQs. These documents can help answer some of your questions regarding what classes are appropriate.
