2023-2024 Course Selection for Current CMS 6th and 7th Grade Students

This year our current 6th and 7th grade students will be selecting their 2023-2024 core and elective course choices online. The required courses for each student include English, Social Studies, Science, Math, Physical Education, and an elective.  

Students viewed a presentation in their Core class regarding the online course selection process.  Please see the instructions on the linked 2023-2024 Quick Guide to Online Course Selection sheet. If you would like additional information, please view the 7th and 8th Grade Course Selection Presentation information available on the CMS website under the Academic Tab-Course Selection/Electives page.  

Math placement will be determined using the LVJUSD Math Placement Matrix.  This matrix uses information from multiple student data sources as well as teacher recommendations to determine the best math placement. 

The PowerSchool Student course selection website will be open from March 17 to April 14. Students will check their Core choice online. They may choose either regular Grade-Level Core (English AND Social Studies) or Honors Core (English Honors AND Social Studies Honors).  Honors Core is a more rigorous program that teaches the grade level curriculum at a more in depth level.  These courses are not weighted.  

Students will be offered one period of elective that will comprise of either a one year-long course or three single trimester-long courses.  Electives are subject to change due to budget constraints, staffing, availability and course enrollment. Some electives have prerequisites, so please review the course descriptions at our website  Some students may be administratively placed in an academic support class in lieu of an elective.  We ask students to select their top two elective choices in the event we are not able to grant the student’s first choice. 

Students interested in taking two year-long electives must select the “Two Elective = Zero Period P.E. Option.”  Zero period P.E. meets five mornings each week from 7:30 to 8:20.  Please be aware that the office will not be able to grant every request for two electives due to budget constraints, staffing, availability and course enrollment.  

Students who do not complete the course selection process by April 14, 2023, will have their courses chosen for them. Students will not be given the opportunity to change them.

If you do not have internet access, please contact the school.  A computer will be made available to complete the online class selection process.
