During the month of March, Columbia River students go through the process of Forecasting for classes for the 2024-25 school year.

During Forecasting, students request which classes they would like to take based on student interest, teacher recommendations, and graduation requirements. Students will use paper forcasting sheets to enter their selections into Synergy.  Students can (and should) keep a copy of their paper forecasting sheet.

We strongly encourage students and families to discuss and review class requests in the spring.  Columbia River uses student class requests to build the 2024-25 school schedule.  We cannot honor class request changes in the fall (start of 2024-25 school year).

Students are able to participate in our annual Curriculum Fair on Friday, March 8, 2024.  This gives students an opportunity to visit 3 presentation sessions about courses they may be interested in.

Some other resources for students and families are:

Columbia River Curriculum Fair Video List:  this is a list of some short videos teachers have created to share information about classes – not all classes are represented

Columbia River Curriculum Guide: Housed in Xello, this is a comprehensive list of courses offered at Columbia River.  It includes a brief description of each course and any requirements for the course.

If you have any questions about Forecasting, please contact your grade level Counselor.
