Before school starts in the Fall, certain students can submit the Elective Preference Form for their next grade level.

For the 2021-2022 school year:

Using the Elective Preference Form:

  • You can view the form as many times as you want while you are considering your electives, but submit the form only once per student.
  • If you don't select your elective, one will be chosen for you.
  • You can indicate your 1st choice of elective, your 2nd choice, and your 3rd choice. You may not get your preferred choice.
  • Electives are year-long classes.
  • Some electives need teacher approval, an application, or an audition.
  • Make sure that all information is correct before you submit the form. You must provide your 10-digit District ID, which starts with your birth date and a letter. It is not the SSID that you use for testing.
