Attention RRPS Community: course selection season is upon us! If your RRPS student is currently in grade 5-11, the month of February is course selection at the middle and high school campuses. Students will be meeting with their counselors to choose courses for next school year. As a parent/guardian, we want you to be involved in your student's course selection. Please visit the middle or high school website for more information, including the Program of Studies, Parent Nights (if the school is holding one) and other information related to course selection. Most students will choose their courses by logging into their Powerschool account. The course selection Powerschool portal will be open until the end of February. It's a great idea to schedule some time to sit down with your student and review the courses they selected for next school year. One final reminder: please do not confuse course selection with registration! Parents/Guardians must still complete the registration process later this spring in order to be fully registered for next year.
