    Forecasting is  Online

    This year, students will make their course choices online, except for incoming freshmen who will still fill out paper forecasting sheets.  The Forecast Guide is available online only, there will be no print version.  Here’s how the forecasting process will work:

    1. Counselors distribute forecasting forms in classrooms
    2. Students mark their forms with their first choices and alternates
    3. Parents review the form and sign to approve
    4. Students enter choices into Student Vue (help is available in the College Center). Students can login to StudentVUE using their regular PPS username and password. If you do not know your PPS username and password, please contact your school office.
    5. Students meet with their counselor (before and after school, during a free period, lunch or study hall) to finish forecasting.
