Registration / Course Information
2023-2024 BMHS Course Planning Guide
Class Selection/ Registration
Class Selection/Registration takes place in the spring before the upcoming school year. Courses that are listed may not be offered depending on the interest generated from students or staffing changes. Students may be referred and placed in specialized classes (basic or advanced) based on standardized test scores (PARCC or ACT),grades and teacher recommendations. Therefore, it is very important that students are informed and decisive when they make their course selections due to the fact the BMHS schedule is built from their requests. Proper course selection is based on knowledge of graduation requirements, good planning, and familiarity with the requirements of courses including prerequisites. Changes to course selections need to be made with teacher, counselor/principal permission within the first 5 days of each semester. Very few changes will be approved. Courses are offered in units of credit. A course that meets for one semester earns .5 units of credit. Except with special permission, courses indicated as one credit (1.0) are to be taken for the 2 semesters and not dropped after the first semester. Students in grades 9, 10 need to be enrolled in 7 classes each semester. Students must attend both semesters or be approved for early graduation.
Dual (Concurrent) Enrollment Oppurtunities
Students at BMHS can earn college credit while working toward high school graduation. Students benefit not only by saving college tuition and time but will find upper level courses challenging and good preparation for college work. These opportunities include:
DUAL ENROLLMENT COURSES
The Colorado legislature allows students to attend approved post-secondary educational institutions to earn high school and/or college credit. Eagle County School District has entered into an agreement with Colorado Mountain College to provide the opportunity for students to earn high school and college credit simultaneously.
