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.
