Registration Form and Information for 11th Graders
1. Review your scheduling options with a parent or guardian. Remember, you can change your mind about the classes you selected when you met with Ms. Anderson. Everything on your form has been written in pencil and can be easily erased. Just keep your graduation requirements in mind.
2. If you are planning on being a Teacher Assistant (TA), there is an additional form for you to get signed.
3. If you are taking an online college course, there is an additional form for a parent/guardian to sign.
4. If you are taking any college class next year, you and a parent/guardian are highly encouraged to attend a college course presentation that will be held on Monday, February 27th from 6:00p-6:30p in the high school library.
5. Make sure to have a parent/guardian sign your registration form.
6. Return your signed registration form to the office by March 3rd, 2023 (there will be a table outside of Missy’s window with a grade-specific box for you to place this in).
If You Are Taking an Online College Course
Here are some important things for parents and students to know:
- The MCC High School partners with Infinity Online (with college credit running through Itasca Community College) and Distance Minnesota (comprised of Northland Community and Technical College, Northwest Technical College and Alexandria Technical and Community College).
- Students who enroll in online college courses will be given a corresponding period in their schedule to work on these classes. Students will report to the library for this.
- Because of FERPA laws, the MCC High School does not receive grading information until the completion of a semester nor does the school receive communication about a student’s progress from their online college instructors. Throughout the semester, parents/guardians should periodically ask their students to show them a current grade as a way to monitor their progress.
- In addition, students are encouraged to keep Ms. Anderson in the loop about their grades/how they are doing in their class(es). Although courses are semester-based, students are required to share their current grade with Ms. Anderson at mid-semester. If a student is passing at mid-semester, a ‘P’ will be recorded on the quarter 1 or quarter 3 report card. However, only the final semester grade will be placed onto a student’s permanent grading record/transcript.
- If a student wishes to drop a Distance Minnesota class, they must do so 7 days PRIOR to the start of the semester. Infinity courses can be dropped through the first two weeks of the class.
- Infinity classes are basically aligned with the high school’s semester start/stop dates. Distance Minnesota classes, however, run differently. For Distance Minnesota classes, the fall semester starts the same day as school starts at the high school but it ends during the third week of December. Spring semester for Distance Minnesota classes begins the second week of January (which is typically a couple of weeks before the end of fall semester at MCC). Because of this, students enrolled in a Distance MN spring course will not have a formal spot in their schedule for their online classes until the start of MCC’s semester two (so it is critical that they put in the time at home).
- Please be aware that an instructor can drop a student from a course after the first week if a student hasn’t completed and submitted their first week assignments. This drop will be a permanent part of their college transcript.
