Student Presentations were presented to each grade level during school on the date noted. Parent/Student Night Presentations were presented during scheduled evening events. These presentations are updated shortly before each year's Parent Information Nights. Please refer to the dates listed below.
Counselors will be making presentations during students’ classes to explain the course selection process and review important information regarding course decisions. This year our course selection process will take place online for students currently in grades 9 through 11. Relevant materials and instructions will be posted on this website. We will also provide a transcript for each 9th-11th grade student. Parents and Guardians: please note the following dates and look at these materials with your student. Please be sure to read the full instructions accompanying the course selection materials.
Counselors will not be able to make individual appointments with students regarding course selection at this time. Counselors WILL be available during lunch and after school. Parents and students can also email their counselor with questions.
PLEASE NOTE: Albany High School has a student driven master schedule and all staffing, class periods and course offerings are determined by your initial course requests. Therefore, there is very little flexibility to change, add or drop classes once initial course selections are submitted. All classes are year-long. Requests to change courses will be considered during the petition period in August and late January on a case-by-case basis. After the initial petition period changes may only be made with the approval of an administrator. Any changes made after the first 6 weeks of any semester may result in a Withdraw (W) posted on the student’s transcript.
