Believe it or not, it is time to begin the Middle School scheduling process for all HCPS fifth grade students! Students, parents, teachers, and school counselors all play a part in this process. Across Henrico County, middle school scheduling is done through PowerSchool.
If your student applied to the IB program, or if you think you might move to a new school zone before next school year starts, please proceed as if they will be going to their CURRENT zoned middle school until you have documentation otherwise. Schedules will be adjusted at a later date if needed.
What needs to be done now?
STEP 1: If you do not already have one, now is the time to create a PowerSchool Parent Portal account. You might already have one if you like to keep track of your student’s grades online. If you don’t have one yet, go to https://sis.henrico.k12.va.us/public/ and click “Create Account.” Your child’s 5th grade teacher will recommend 6th grade courses for him/her online in January. Starting January 30th, you will be able to log in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal (website above) to see their recommendations.
STEP 2: During parent/teacher conferences in February, your child’s teacher will go over his/her course recommendations with you. Discuss the teacher’s recommendations and elective options with your child. If you have questions/concerns about recommendations but cannot attend a conference, please reach out to your child’s teacher and/or School Counselor.
STEP 3: Between January 30th-February 9th, confirm the course selections and choose electives online through your PowerSchool Parent Portal. If you do not have computer/internet access, you may use computers on campus during parent/teacher conferences to confirm recommendations and choose electives. Parents must make all course selections in PowerSchool between January 30th – February 9th, 2018.
STEP 4: Your school counselor will print your student’s course recommendations/selections and send them home in March. This will not be a schedule, just a list of the courses for which your student has enrolled. You will need to sign that form and return it to your school counselor (dates vary by school).
