Letter from Student Services

We have completed our academic advising season. If you have not done so yet, please review your student’s course selections with them for next year. These courses are viewable through ParentVue or StudentVue accounts. We are now beginning to create our master schedule for next year and the schedules will be tight next year. This indicates that the students will have little flexibility to change schedules once they have been received.
JMHS Counselors are reaching out for your support in AP Exam administration this year!  The exams run from Monday, May 6th to Friday, May 17th with both AM (7:30-12:00) and PM (11:30-4) time slots.  We are in need of several proctors to support multiple testing days and sessions.  Agreeing to support as a Proctor does not entail “administering the exam” and your role will simply be to support our teachers and counselors during the exam.  We could not provide these opportunities to our students without your efforts and sacrifice.  If you would like to volunteer your time this year, please sign up here!
Please be on the lookout for communication directly from the county regarding billing for AP Exams. Per a school board policy change last year, all students will be responsible for any AP Exams taken beyond six exams during their high school tenure. The county will cover the fees for the first six (6) exams the student takes but the student will then be charged $93 for each exam over the allotted six exams. This billing information should be coming during the first two weeks of April and will need to be settled prior to graduation.
