Registration for the 2019 - 2020 School Year
Registration for students entering grades 10 - 12 during the 2019 - 2020 school year will be open from Tuesday, January 8, 2019 - Tuesday, January 15, 2019. Students will receive their registration materials in their Cardinal Core Advisory period and will have one week to make final course decisions. Students will have the opportunity to attend 'mini-sessions' focused on providing more information about course offerings in our departments on Thursday, January 10, 2019.
The STEP Program will hold an open house on Thursday, January 3, 2019 from 3 - 7:00pm. This will be held at the STEP building located at 1353 Highway 10 W, Anoka, MN 55303.
Course recommendations will be pre-populated for students. When a student logs in to their student view account and selects the 'Course Requests' link, they will see the core courses required for graduation. They will also see teacher recommendations for appropriate placement in math courses. Students in the AVID, Biomed and the Engineering programs or students who receicive Reading, English Language Learner, or Special Education services will have their program specific requirements pre-loaded. Some courses may be locked. If this is the case, please contact your program coordinator, case manager or counselor for more information.
We encourage all students to consider ways to challenge themselves academically during their time at Coon Rapids High School. For some, this may include taking honors, College in the Schools (CIS) and / or Advanced Placement (AP) courses. After a thoughtful discussion with their families and teachers, if a student would like to challenge themselves they may delete the original course and replace it with the AP, honors, or alternate recommendation. Additional information surrounding honors curriculum is provided in the link to the right.
Please remember that after January 15 your registration will be final. We ask all students to register carefully and to discuss their course choices with their teachers and families in advance of this date. Student's registration are the basis for post-secondary readiness and may impact college options in the future. Registration decisions are also used for the purpose of staff hiring. For this reason, all honors, CIS, and AP course registration is final and cannot be dropped. Please consider each student's school / life balance when making decisions related to honors level course work.
