Key Points for 9th Grade Registration:
When you start 9th grade at OHMS You are officially in high school! The courses taken in 9th grade will count towards your high school graduation requirements.
- Every 8th-grade student is invited to attend a PCCR (Plan for College and Career Readiness) meeting. These are individual meetings with your school counselor (parents were also invited and encouraged to attend). These meetings take place between November – February. During this meeting, a 4-Year Plan is created in Skyward (see “Career Plan” in Skyward). A 4-Year plan is customized to meet student goals and plans for high school. Refer to your 4-Year Plan when selecting courses.
