Dixie Heights FBLA Success!!! FBLA

FBLA had an amazing day at the Region 4 Leadership Conference. Our kids did an outstanding job at competing, showing their professionalism as young business leaders, and showing their Colonel Pride! We have 13 students that have qualified for the State Leadership Conference in April! I am beyond proud of our students for their hard work and dedication to FBLA. If you see any of them, please congratulate them on their success!

Student Scheduling

Student scheduling is an important process of setting up a student for success.  In order to provide support to our students in selecting appropriate courses, a draft course schedule is created for each student in order to begin the scheduling process.  This draft of pre-loaded courses is based on the recommended cut scores listed in the course guide.  For example, students not reaching benchmark (using the most current assessment percentile score) may be placed in career pathway courses which help them achieve transition readiness.  If you have questions or concerns regarding your child’s draft schedule, please contact your child’s guidance counselor.
