    BEFORE YOU START sign into the survey using your apps4pps account. Now be sure you have

    1. A current and valid email address that can be accessed by a computer.

    2.Parent Approval for your elective choices.  Your parents are required to sign your form, after you complete your survey, and before you turn it into the main office.  

    3. Internet access - The survey can be completed online, with computers or mobile devices, but prarents, or students, will need email access to print the attached form that will be generated and sent to you via email.  

    Please review and consider your elective choices BEFORE you start the survey.  Please choose a variety of classes from each section, otherwise we will have to make elective choices for you, if you don't get your first preferences.  It is suggested that students complete their forecasting survey at home, with parent support.  If this is not possible, students may have access to school computers before and after school, or during lunchtime, to take the survey and print their form.
