Helpful hints when selecting courses on line!

  • Go to High School Planner.  Select courses from your pink option sheet. If courses don't automatically appear, on drop down menu find grade 9 and search there.
  • Remember you MUST take GLS. Look under Guidance to find it.
  • You must choose the Phys-ed class according to  your gender (M or F)
  • Get your teacher to check it over before you "Submit". No need to print, SLSS will print for us.
  • Even students who have applied to a regional program select courses at SLSS
  • If you are attending the Catholic school or are moving to another Board, click "Not returning" and click on appropriate reason. For example, if you are going to Joan of Arc or moving to Milton... click on not returning and then Public Secondary School (In-Province)
