• Life Skills/PAL scheduling adjustments

    All principals  |  Deadline: July 31

    Scheduling requirements for the Life Skills/PAL program have been adjusted for the 2015-2016 school year. Please review the summary of courses that lists mandatory and elective classes to ensure that all students are scheduled properly for the upcoming school year.

    Changes to the scheduling requirements include the following:

    • Students should no longer be scheduled for the L/P Alt-MSA courses; these courses have been replaced with L/P NCSC for students in grades 3 to 8 and grade 11.
    • Students in grades 5, 8, and 10 must be scheduled for the L/P Alt-MSA science course.
    • As required by the Maryland State Department of Education, students must be scheduled for courses aligned to their recorded grade level in SMS.
    • Students must be scheduled for all of the courses listed in the “must schedule” row of the summary of courses, according to their grade level.

    We apologize for the change at this point in the scheduling process, and thank all school staff who have met scheduling milestones thus far. For questions, please email Michael Jones in the Academics Office.
