Once the school year gets started and you are feeling more confident in your setting, be sure to make time to speak with your counselor in order to go over your credits. If you are short credits, attempt to work with your counselor as soon as possible to get registered for credit recovery so that it can be completed during your junior year.



Satellite program students should contact their home school for guidance and counseling.
