Class registration for next year’s courses will be an online ordeal. The change is not only to cut down on paperwork, but to prepare students for online college class registration.
The registration will be done through INOW and information will be given at a presentation in English classes over the next several days depending on grade.
At the presentation, students will receive a packet with their INOW login information and a set of step-by-step instructions showing students how to register for classes.
Once students have made their class decisions, they can log onto INOW anytime and register for their classes.
Counselor Mark Clark said that it would be preferable if students could register within a week of receiving their information since the counselors have so many schedules to approve.
Clark said the online registration will greatly cut down on work students have to do, but will actually increase the work of counselors because of the “double-checking” they will have to do.
Clark also said as long as students put course numbers in correctly, the transition will be smooth and will cut down on the number of schedule changes.
With the new registration system, students will be able to identify and correct schedule mistakes earlier than in recent years, he said.
Counselors will be available in the spine at lunch next week to answer questions that students have.
