Scheduling and Forecasting
At Marist, our approach to building the master schedule is student-centered, which takes a
great deal of time and care. This means that giving every student the classes he/she requested
is our highest priority. While we are unable meet that goal 100% of the time, we come very
close. A complete overview of the process is available on ibook or PDF.
The master schedule also dictates what courses are offered, who we hire, how many sections of
a class are offered, and when those classes are offered within the day.
Due to the complexity of this task and the importance of each student’s academic experience, it
is vital that care and consideration is given by both student and parents/guardians in selecting
courses for the next school year.
• Carefully consider load, ability, and interest. These should be the primary considerations. We
have found that students carefully balancing quality of learning, appropriate challenge and
potential for success are foundational to strong intellectual development, a confident sense of
self and a healthy mind, spirit, and body.
• Schedules will be sent home around July 1. The student will be contacted by his or her counselor
during May and June if the requested courses cannot be accommodated.
• Students may request a schedule review at any time. Reviews requested after the end of the
school year regarding schedule conflicts and problems will be addressed (in order received)
starting in mid-August.
*Class registration on will ONLY be open from the evening of March 2 through March 9.
*All honors/appeals are due to your teacher by March 12.
*If you have any questions about course selection please see your counselor.
