Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

Believe it or not, we have just about reached the halfway point of the 2017-2018 academic year and we are beginning to look towards building the schedule for the 2018-2019 school year.  Because the selection of appropriate courses is extremely important to your child’s academic success, the SHS counseling staff and administration want to ensure that you, the parent/guardian, are involved in the process.  For this reason, we have provided a brief outline of the scheduling process below.  We ask that you review the attached links and timeline over the next few weeks with your child.  Parent(s)/Guardian(s) can access the 2018-2019 Susquehannock High School Curriculum Guide https://goo.gl/wS12se for detailed course descriptions, course sequencing information, and requirements for graduation.    

Susquehannock High School Scheduling Timeline

  • Parent(s)/Guardian(s) and students should review the 2018-2019 Susquehannock High School Curriculum Guide https://goo.gl/wS12se and discuss teacher recommendations prior to January 16, 2018.  If parent(s)/guardian(s) have any questions or concerns, please contact your student’s counselor via email or phone.
