    • When registration goes live, the server for the Doodle website might slow down due to high volume.  Please be patient and persistent...it will work.

    • Listed below are EEE courses offered during SEMESTER TWO. 

    • On Monday, January 11, a link for registration will become live for each course that you can click on to register for that course.  In order to make sure all students get their 1st or 2nd choice, the following directions must be followed when registration opens: 

      • A certain number of spots will be available for each grade level. This is to insure that there is equal access for all grades. Some courses are reserved for certain grades because of content or popularity.

      • If one is unable to click on his/her 2015-2016 grade level, it means that the course is closed for that grade level. It does not mean that the student will not be able to get into the course. The student should place their name on the WAIT LIST at the bottom of the registration page in the "comments section". After registration is closed, I review all the courses and then let students in who are on the WAIT LIST if possible, SO students should put themselves on the WAIT LIST.

      • Once students have placed themselves on the WAIT LIST, they should attempt to register for their SECOND CHOICE. If that course is closed, students should put themselves on the WAIT LIST, THEN, PROCEED to their THIRD CHOICE.

      • MOST IMPORTANT:  If directions are not followed, students may lose their spots in courses. DO NOT REGISTER FOR MORE THAN ONE COURSE.  If students register for more than one course, they will be deleted from the courses to make room for others.  IT IS ACCEPTABLE TO BE ON MORE THAN ONE "WAIT LIST".
