Course Registration and Scheduling

Course Registration

Current PCHS and TMJH students register for their next-year classes in March.  Dates for class registration by grade level will be advertised by the school on their website and via school announcements.  To register for classes, students must complete and submit a Class Registration Form, which includes a parent signature and any teacher signatures required by course prerequisites.

New incoming students will NOT register for classes at the same time as our current students.  New students can pre-enroll for the next school year and register for classes during the month of May ONLY.  Otherwise, enrollment must wait until August.  See the New Student Enrollment page of our website for information specifically for new enrolling students.

Scheduling

The Park City High School master course schedule is generated by computer, based on the number of requests for each course, as submitted by students during the class registration process in March.  Our master schedule strives to ensure equity and fairness to all students and to maintain balanced class loads.  We are not able to offer the option of scheduling classes with specific teachers or at specific times.

The counseling staff works very hard to give students their first-choice electives.  However, we may experience scheduling conflicts that require us to place students into one of their alternate elective choices.  This is why we require students to select alternates.  We use alternates only when scheduling conflicts cannot otherwise be resolved.  Because the availability and staffing of all our courses depends upon the requests made during spring registration, we expect students to accept and complete the courses they requested, including their alternates.

If a scheduling error is made, counseling staff should be notified prior to the first day of school so corrections can be made with as little disruption as possible. Once the school year is underway, students may ONLY request a schedule change within the first FIVE DAYS of the SEMESTER.  Requests for schedule changes outside the change window will require a student-initiated meeting with Administration.  Not all schedule change requests can be granted due to class sizes, class availability, schedule disruption, etc.  See the PCHS Schedule Change Policy for more information.

About Our Course Offerings

The PCHS Course Catalog is available here as a downloadable PDF.

Subject to Change:
All course offerings are subject to change based on course enrollment numbers, securing qualified teachers, or availability of a teaching facility and/or equipment.  School Board, Legislative, and Utah State Office of Education rules and mandates may also force changes to our offerings.

Course Descriptions:
Course descriptions are provided to help students and parents determine the content of our course offerings.  Please read the descriptions fully and carefully.  If further explanation is needed, please contact the teacher who is currently teaching the course.  Teacher e-mail addresses are available on the Teacher Pages of our website.

Course Fees:
The Park City Board of Education affirms the principle that a public education should be free to the patrons of the school district and that barriers to public education should be removed wherever possible.  In that effort, the school board has waived the fee requirements for elective courses and general education expenses.  The board’s action is not a categorical waiver of all fees.  Remaining fees are subject to State law and district fee waiver policy.  See the School Fees page of our website for the most up-to-date information on school fees.

Course Locations:
Most of Park City High School classes are located on campus, but due to teacher or facility requirements, some courses may be located at Treasure Mountain Junior High or the Park City Learning Academy.  Students will be required to walk to those other campuses, even in bad weather.  Course locations are subject to change.
