Course Selection Frequently Asked Questions

What if I was absent when we got this information or I will be absent on the day we enter our course selections?

Students can ask their counselor questions if you do not understand the course selection form. If you are absent on the day we enter courses into Campus Portal, counselors will meet with you on another day to complete this.

Do I have a better chance of getting the electives I want if I complete my form sooner?

No. Schedules will be built later after all electives requests are entered. You just need to complete your form before the day we are entering requests into Campus Portal.

If I am planning to audition for the musical or I am hoping to take the RISE Elective, Girls' Garage, or Virtual Academy classes, should I request fewer electives?
No. We would like all students to request 6 electives plus alternates. If you are cast in the musical or enrolled in one of these other classes, your schedule will be adjusted later.

What if I want to be a TA?
We will have an application process in the spring for 1st trimester TAs for next school year. If you are assigned a TA position, your schedule will be adjusted at that time.

Are the Jeffco Virtual Academy classes right for me (8th grade only)?
Jeffco Virtual Academy is the district's online class. Students who request these classes should be independent workers with a strong work ethic. Since the JVA teacher is not in the classroom giving direct instruction every day, these students will need to learn how to manage their time well and stay caught up with the work assigned for these classes.

Can I choose to take only one Virtual Academy class (8th grade only)?
No. Since Jeffco Virtual Academy is on semesters and EMS is on trimesters, students who wish to take JVA classes need to take 2, one for each semester. You can choose a full-year foreign language class or two semester long classes.

If I am not attending EMS next school year, should I still complete a course selection form?
Yes. If you move schools, your classes will be removed. However, if your plans change and you do come back to EMS, you will still have your requested classes.
