2019-2020 Early Enrollment for Returning Students

Current KCTC 10th and 11th grade students have the opportunity to participate in Early Enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year.  Because we give returning students priority placement, the student must maintain good standings in attendance and academics.  Failure to do so will result in placement loss.

Academics/Attendance/Conduct: In some cases, if more requests for a class are made than seats are available, we will make selections based on student performance, attendance, and teacher recommendation.

Students will be given the opportunity during class time to make a selection for next year.  This process is done through the student’s PowerSchool account. 

Students will be asked to declare one of three options:

  1. Select the program and session he/she would like to attend in 2019-2020.
    (Some programs and schools do not participate all three sessions)
  2. Select Undecided  (A member of the Student Services staff will connect with the student in the next few weeks to discuss options and possible program visits to other programs)
  3. Select Not Returning

Early Enrollment is from Nov 26th – 30th.  Students may change their selection up until January 18th.  Any changes made after January 18th will need to be processed through Student Services.

Early Enrollment lists will be sent to the student’s high school counselor at the end of January.

2019-2020 Enrollment confirmation letters will be mailed early May.
