• THE SCHEDULING WINDOW for the 22-23 School Year is now closed!  
     
     
    You are cordially invited to our annual Course Selection Night which will be held on January 18ᵗʰ at 6:30 pm in the WEST Auditorium. This event is designed for students currently in grades 8, 9, 10 and 11.  The evening will begin with a presentation outlining the requirements for graduation and how to complete the course selection process.  For those who may be unable to join us in person, the presentation will be available via livestream using the following link (https://youtu.be/BWl4q8M1v50). Following the presentation, department representatives will be available around the building, on Zoom, and via  direct email to answer questions.  Additionally, as we did last year, informational videos/materials will be available from each department via Schoology, Google Drive and on our West website under the heading Course Selection Information to assist with the course selections process.  
    • For parents of 8th grade students, your evening will begin with an informational presentation in the Auditorium at 6:30 pm. You will then be able to complete a self-guided tour to visit departments around the building and ask additional questions about specific courses.
    • For parents of 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students, you are welcome to join us for the 8th grade presentation if you feel like you need a refresher course on course selection; however, all the necessary course selection materials will be available through Schoology and Google Drive.  Any parent and/or student is more than welcome to ask or visit department members with specific questions.

    In preparation for Course Selection, I encourage you to review the 2022-2023 Program of Study found HERE, on Schoology or on our website.  If you do not have access to the Internet and/or would like to receive a hard copy of this information, please call our Counseling Office for assistance. 

    All course selections for the 2022-23 school year will be completed on-line through the Student Portal, using the student login. Directions for accessing the Student Portal on Infinite Campus can be found HERE.  If students are unable to login to the Student Portal:

    1) Contact Service Desk: https://assistme.dasd.org/ or 2) call the WEST Main Office 610-269-4400 ext. 81421. 8th grade parents/students should call the Downingtown Middle School Main Office at 610-518-0685 ext. 81351, if needing additional help. All students must complete this on-line process between January 21, 2022 and January 30, 2022. Counselors will meet with  students after this time period to discuss their course selections. Middle School counselors will be working with the 8th grade students to complete the scheduling process.

    We look forward to working with you this winter as we begin the scheduling process for the 2022-2023 school year.  Please find the table below as a reference for important Course Selection Dates in weeks and months ahead.  If you have questions, please feel free to call the Counseling office (610-269-4400 ext. 81422).
