New Registration Process for 2018-2019 School Year
We are excited to provide you with information regarding our new registration process for the 2018-2019 school year. Students and parents play an integral role in selecting courses and developing their plan each school year. For the first time, you will now be able to log into your Skyward student and family portals to select courses and electives! In addition, you will now be able to see Graduation Requirements in Skyward. This new tab will provide you with completed courses, courses in progress and remaining courses. We will start this brand new MISD process with you and your student in the next week.
The information will be distributed to students as follows:
9th grade packets will begin arriving in the mail in the next few days.
10th and 11th grade – Counselors will distribute packets in English classes. If your student has a TCC English class, we will call him/her into the office to pick up a packet.
