Course Selection Materials

  • Course Selection

    A critical part of your child’s transition to James B. Conant High School is the selection of elective courses your child would like to participate in during 9th grade. Elective courses provide opportunities for your child to learn about specific areas of interest that may relate to future choices of college majors or career fields. 

    When selecting elective coursework, students are encouraged to consider their career cluster matches from the Xello Matchmaker activity. Click here for directions on how to complete this activity:

    Please review the elective choice offerings on the Class of 2025 Elective Course Request Sheet.

    Submitting Elective Choices

    You will indicate your child’s elective course requests using an online interface accessed through the District 211 Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Please log on to the Parent Portal using the individualized account you recently established with the activation key that was mailed to you in late October. 

    Once in the portal, click More from the left hand menu, then click the link titled “D211 Elective Course Selection” on the right side of your screen. You will use the interface to indicate two electives plus an alternate request. The deadline to indicate elective course requests is Wednesday, December 16, 2020.

    In late January, you will receive a notice confirming your child’s placement in English, mathematics and science courses. The notice will also confirm the elective courses that will be included as part of your child’s freshman year course schedule.
