Forecasting

Forecasting allows a school to determine how many sections of classes we need to offer. Students select classes through StudentVue and that information helps us create a Master Schedule of classes for next year. This process does not create the student’s actual schedule though; that will be done over the summer and shared out in August. And, August is when your student can request a schedule change. 

Please use the information on this page to answer questions you have about forecasting and planning your student’s schedule for 2020-2021. Use your Course History page on StudentVue to see which classes you still need to take.

All Access Classes

  • Typically, all-access classes are Early Bird, 1st, and 5th period. However, all three schools have a different bell schedule, so class times will vary. Visit www.cratercomets.com for bell schedules. 
  • In most EB classes, students can only earn 0.66 of a credit (which totals two full credits by the end of the year). The exception has been the EB Football Lifting class which begins at 7:30 am (not 7:45 am).

    • **We will not know exactly which classes will be offered until August. This list is just to show you an example of what we’ve offered in the past. 

Pre-Requisites

  • Advanced Placement (AP) Courses
    • High school students across the country and around the world take AP courses and exams to challenge themselves, explore their interests, and earn college credit and placement. AP classes are available to prepare students for college, but because of the fast pace curriculum, students find it easy to fall behind. You are expected to spend 1-2 hours a day outside of class working on classwork. The grading in these classes is similar to what you’ll experience in college. 
    • We recommend waiting until your junior year to take an AP class. 
    • Sophomores should take T3 Honors English if they are interested in taking AP English junior year. 
  • College Credit courses
