Our guidance staff will begin the process of conducting Individual Graduation Plans and High School course registration for the 2019-2020 school year with our 8th grade students. Your involvement in this process is important to us! You are encouraged to visit our school website to make an appointment online at http://tinyurl.com/BMShighschoolregistration to meet with a Sumter High School counselor during the week of April 8-12. During this time the counselors will discuss your student’s current and past academic progress, high school goals, and plans for the future. You must make an appointment online by Friday, March 29 or an appointment time will be assigned. We encourage you to discuss career goals, academic progress, and elective choices with your child prior to coming to meet with the high school counselors. On the back of this letter is a copy of the high school registration form in which the student will have to select 4 electives as well as 3 alternates in case the first choices are not available. A copy of the course bulletin is online at http://sumterschools.net/about-us/for-parents-and-students/ Due to the high volume of students to be scheduled, it may be difficult to re-schedule your appointment time. If you are not able to meet in person, the counselor will send home a copy of the final registration form to be signed by you and returned to the counselor. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your student’s guidance counselor at 803-775- 0711. We look forward to this opportunity to meet with you and your student to discuss his/her course selections and future plans.
