Online Course Selection

It is that time of year again when you can select your courses for the 2020-21 school year. You will need your computer or Chromebook to complete the selection of courses.

The window for the Online Course Selection process for the 2020-2021 school year will begin on January 7, 2020, and will be accessible to students through February 9, 2020. The online course selection process should be completed using the Synergy StudentVUE or ParentVUE.

Students and families are reminded that this selection of courses does not mean that all will be scheduled into their 2020-2021 class schedule. There may be schedule conflicts, classes that don’t end up being offered due to low interest, or prerequisites that haven’t been met. These requests create an inventory of courses that will determine how the master schedule is built to accommodate the highest percentage of classes possible. Course selection does ensure that students have the opportunity to select the coursework that will best meet their needs and that we can plan our staffing resources for these courses.

Course menus, selection guidelines, and instructions can be found on our school’s website: https://lsw.lps.org/.

Help sessions will be held during PLC time on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, January 14th
  • Tuesday, January 21st
