Courses and Class Registration

Suggestions Before Requesting Courses Through Infinite Campus

Print out a scheduling transcript to view previous courses, grades, and credits earned by logging into an Infinite Campus portal account through a web browser, then going to “Reports” and “Scheduling Transcript.”

View the webcast of counselor’s presentations given to students.

Review the Course Registration Guide (under “Junior High School Course Guide and Fees”) to learn more about the classes, credits, fees, etc.

Review the other helpful documents on the Course Registration page to learn more about the graduation requirements, grading policies, diplomas, NCAA standards, etc.

Fill out a Course Request worksheet for your grade level to assist you once you’ve logged into the portal (these forms do not need to be turned in). Worksheets were distributed by counselors, and are also available on the Course Registration page

Log into the portal using a web browser (Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer). Mobile devices using a web browser/internet connection can be used, but you will not be able to use the mobile app for course registration.

High School Registration - February 8 - February 26 at 2:00pm

Dear Parents,

It is time for our 8th grade students to register for Pickerington High School North! This is an exciting time for our students, but we also know that many students are nervous about the transition to high school. On Monday, February 8 and Tuesday, February 9, Mr. Peirano, one of the counselors from Pickerington High School North, will be visiting our 8th grade social studies classes.

To prepare for next week’s visit, please take some time this weekend to review the High School Course Guide with your child. The High School Course Guide is online at http://www.pickerington.k12.oh.us/pickerington-north-high/courses-and-class-registration/. Mr. Peirano and I will be reviewing the course guide, discussing graduation requirements and the new schedule next week with students in Social Studies classes. If time allows, we will have students log on to their Infinite Campus account and register for classes.

Registration will be open and active from Monday, February 8 – Friday, February 26 at 2:00pm. Registration must happen on a computer or laptop; you will not be able to register on phones or iPads. More information on how to register will be sent home with your child when we visit their social studies class.

There will be a College Credit Plus meeting at Pickerington High School Central on February 17 at 7:00pm. Please plan to attend this meeting if you are interested in having your child earn college credit while they are in high school.

Please note that when your student is at the high school, they will be assigned to a school counselor by their last name. At this time, our high school counselors are available through the registration process via email only.

Summer 2017 Credit Recovery / Grade Replacement Program

Pickerington Schools will offer a credit recovery/grade replacement program during the summer of 2017. The program is open to any current high school or past students of the Pickerington Schools. Out-of-district students may be considered if space is available.

Registration is now available online.

Credit Recovery is a self-guided, computer-based program that will allow a student to earn credits in areas where the student has previously been unsuccessful.

Courses will vary in terms of the hourly requirements needed to complete a course. Each course will be worth ½ to 1 (0.5 – 1.0) Carnegie units. There are ways for a student to accelerate progress by pre-testing out of some units. Students will be able to take as many credits as they want during the session but will not be permitted to work on more than one course at a time.

Registration will be on a first-come basis, although students who should have graduated in May 2017 will be given the first priority of placement. All Pickerington students will be given priority before the placement of any student from outside the school district.
