General Articulation Process for rising 9th graders
During the eighth grade school year, students will take part in many articulation activities. Early in the year, Eighth graders will have guidance lessons that cover topics such as graduation requirements, basic high school vocabulary, high school scheduling and career assessments. The school counselor will hold an Eighth Grade Parent Night in October to answer general questions, notify parents of deadlines and important events.
During the second semester, the feeder high school will also host parent meetings for parents of rising Ninth graders to answer specific questions and details. In the early Spring, teachers submit academic recommendations electronically for all rising 9th grade students. All teacher recommendations are based on the guidelines set by the high school and communicated with the middle school.
