General Forecasting Information
In short, FORECASTING is choosing the classes you will take next year, and takes place in winter term (so you are planning 6+ months ahead of time). We encourage parents and students to look carefully at the Course Guide, and take the forecasting process seriously. The Course Guide is a tool to help you organize and plan for college and other career goals you may have. When forecasting for your classes, plan thoughtfully for the course that has the appropriate level of rigor for you.
With the guidance of counselors, teachers and administrators, we will help you make important decisions about your education at CHS. Parents are encouraged to take an active role in the forecasting process and must sign their student's forecasting form.
*Be aware of prerequisites and supplies needed before signing up for a class.
2019-20 Forecasting Information
Course forecasting and scheduling for the 2019-20 school year is quickly upon us! There are some changes to our process this year to better streamline our data entry and counselor review. We encourage you to be a part of your student’s course planning and take this opportunity to discuss their 4-year graduation and post-graduation plans. Your students will receive resources the first week of the second semester, including information about prerequisites, graduation requirements and International Baccalaureate. The course guide explaining all courses offered is currently available below.
Please review this information carefully. It is highly recommended that you also review your student’s transcript with them before making course selections. Student transcripts are available in StudentVue by selecting Course History (on the far left - see image below); then click on Graduation Status (on the far right).

Students will need to complete the paper forecasting sheet using the course guide and course options on the back of the sheet to help select appropriate courses. Please follow all instructions on this sheet. This has been intentionally redesigned to provide you with graduation requirements and provide grade-specific options to ensure a successful 4-year plan. This sheet should be done before completeing your online course request. Bring this sheet to the Forecasting Follow-up (see dates above) with your counselor.

Counselors will review all online course requests to ensure that the forecasted classes align to the student's 4-year graduation plan. If additional attention is needed to the selected courses, counselors will meet with individual students.
Thank you for your support as we try to implement new systems to better serve our students. Forecasting can be an exciting time and we hope you enjoy looking through the amazing course options we offer at Cleveland High School.
