Course Registration and Scheduling

Course Registration

Current Park City School District students register for their next-year classes in February/March.  Dates for class registration by grade level will be advertised by the school on their website and via school announcements.  In order 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 can pre-enroll for the next school year during the month of May.  You will not register for classes the same time our current students do!  Please see the New Student Enrollment page for class registration 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 February/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 or during the first week of school so corrections can be made with as little disruption as possible.

Schedule changes must be approved by the student’s counselor, teachers, parents, and sometimes an administrator.  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, including the course offerings for 2018-19, is available here as a downloadable PDF.

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

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:
Some courses require additional fees to help pay for specialized equipment or supplies.  Fees are approved by the School Board after the course catalog is published, therefore fees are subject to change.  Fee waivers are available to families who qualify based on need.  Contact the finance secretary in the main office.

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.
