8th Grade Scheduling for HS
This year's 8th graders are already looking toward their graduation in the year 2025!
They recently met with ILHS Counselor Greg Tuttle and ILMS Counselor Mandy Tidwell to get started on the scheduling process for next school year. They covered graduation requirements, explained physical education waivers and mapped out how to earn the credit hours needed to complete their high school education. The counselors also described ways that students can earn specific agriculture and/or business certificates prior to graduation.
Each 8th grade student received an ILHS Course Worksheet and Booklet to take home and fill out with their parents. They should talk to their parents and teachers, then turn those course worksheets into their first period teachers as soon as possible. Over the next few weeks each student will meet with a counselor to go over his or her options for next school year and beyond. 
Tuttle also hopes to arrange a Virtual Tour of Ohio Hi-Point Career Center for students who are considering that path. 
All changes to class preferences must be made before summer break. Each student will get a list of classes they will have Freshman year before they leave ILMS in May. Schedules will be ready for pick up at Open House Night in mid August.
