For Current Raa Middle School students…
Scheduling for the 2021-2022 will begin on with the distribution of Elective Request forms during Homeroom on Wednesday, May 5th. Teachers will make core course recommendations (English/Language Arts, math, science, and social studies) for each student in Focus. All core and elective courses will be available for review in Focus by June 1st. Please see the Course Recommendation Guide and Elective Course Descriptions for detailed information.
Special Note for High School Credit and Advanced Courses: Placement in honors and high school credit courses require students to meet specific criteria. This is to ensure success throughout the school year in meeting the rigorous course demands. Please see the Course Recommendation Guide for these criteria. These courses follow class-size mandates so strict adherence to course requirements are followed.
Special Note for Advanced Art Courses: Raa Middle School advanced arts courses require teacher approval for students and an audition (when noted). Interested students will select the course on their Elective Request form. This does not guarantee enrollment in this course for the 2021-2022 school year. Arts teachers will then approve student elective requests and communicate their approval or denial to students and parents. Information about auditions will be provided by the teacher. See Arts Course Descriptions to determine appropriate elective choice.
