• Cedar Hill ISD scholars who will be in grades 6 through 12 for the 2021-2022 school year will select their elective courses between February 22 and March 5.

    In previous years, scholars have selected their courses in person, but due to COVID-19, all course selections will be completed online, on Skyward Student Access.

    Incoming high school scholars will choose three electives, as well as two alternates, their core classes, plus a class affiliated with their endorsement, will already be pre-selected for them.

    Incoming sixth through eighth grade scholars will pick two electives. They will not select an endorsement until they enroll in high school.

     

    Parents, if you want to request a change to a core or elective course that has been pre-selected and locked OR if you are in high school and want to request an advanced course (Honors, AP, DC), please click here. Your counselor will be checking the link regularly.
