2017-2018 Registration Process and Timeline
Core Subject Recommendation
Teachers of pre-requisite core courses (English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and World Languages) are responsible for making appropriate course recommendations for the next school year. These recommendations generated the First Course Verification Form that was distributed to students today who will now have an opportunity to review their teachers' recommendations and make any necessary changes. Students will receive two additional Course Verification Forms before the end of this school year, allowing them to update their course requests, if necessary, before the final deadline of June 16, 2017.
Students are encouraged to pursue a challenging course of study; however, they should keep in mind that the demands of on-level, honors-level, and Advanced Placement (AP) courses vary. Students should consider their entire course load and aim for a balanced schedule by taking into account teacher recommendations, District placement guidelines, course load, extra-curricular commitments, interest level, after-school jobs, future goals, and other factors when signing up for honors-level and AP courses. Teachers, parents, and students are encouraged to use the matrix at the following link to provide additional guidance in making course selections. Students who receive two or more ratings of 1 or 2 are not strong candidates for honors or AP classes.
Cambridge Course Recommendation Guidelines
No student who meets the criteria outlined in the Fulton County Schools Placement Guidelines should be prevented from taking a course, but this is only one criteria used to determine appropriate placement. The student's overall aptitude demonstrated by evidence from past performance, and teacher feedback should be considered, always bearing in mind what is in the best interests of the student. District placement guidelines can be found at the link below.
Fulton County Schools Placement Guidelines
After considering teacher recommendations and the guidance charts, parents may sign a waiver for placement in an accelerated, honors, or Advanced Placement course if a student does not meet the District placement guidelines and was not recommended by his or her teacher. The waiver form can be found at the link below.
Advanced Placement and Honors Course Waiver

Second Course Verification Form
February 27, 2017
Students will receive 2nd course verification forms that list all of their requests (core courses and electives). Students will have an opportunity to make changes to their requests on these forms. During this second verification, students will state their intent to take Move On When Ready (MOWR) courses and courses online; information regarding online course options will be provided. The Counseling department will host a MOWR informational meeting for students and parents on February 13, 2017 at 6:30 pm.
Third Course Verification Form
April 19, 2017
Students will receive 3rd course verification forms to confirm and to make changes to their course requests for next year. This is another opportunity for students to make changes if needed.
Final Course Change Deadline
June 16, 2017
Course request changes must be communicated on or before June 16, 2017. Immediately following June 16, the master schedule will be generated from the course requests generated through the course verification process; students' course requests will be honored in the creation of the 2017-2018 master schedule. Cambridge High School does not have a "drop/add" period for course changes.
