Course Selection Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have a better chance of getting the electives I want if I complete my form sooner?
No. Schedules will be built later after all electives requests are entered. You just need to complete your form before the deadline that the counselors will give you. Most students will take all electives at EMS over the course of the school year unless you are in a full-year elective class. In that case, you will have three other electives randomly assigned.

What if I am hoping to take the RISE Elective?
The forms will ask you about your interest in this class. If you are enrolled in the RISE Elective, your schedule will be adjusted later.

What if I want to be a TA?
You can indicate on the form if you are interested in a TA position next school year. If you are assigned a TA position, your schedule will be adjusted at that time.

Are the Jeffco Virtual Academy foreign language classes right for me (8th grade only)?
Jeffco Virtual Academy is the district's online class. Students who request these classes should be independent workers with a strong work ethic. Since the JVA teacher is not in the classroom giving direct instruction every day, these students will need to learn how to manage their time well and stay caught up with the work assigned for these classes. These options are given to students who are not currently taking Spanish 101 & 102 but would like to start a foreign language in middle school.

If I am not attending EMS next school year, should I still complete a course selection form?
Yes. If you move schools, your classes will be removed. However, if your plans change and you do come back to EMS, you will still have your requested classes.
