Forecasting FAQ

Q: What is Forecasting?

A: Forecasting is the process of selecting and registering for next year's classes.

Q: When does Forecasting take place?

A: April 1-5, right after Spring Break.

Q: Where does Forecasting take place?

A: Forecasting takes place online. Returning freshman, sophomores, and juniors will log their class choices into PowerSchool during their respective 9th-grade Physics, 10th-grade English, or 11th-grade Religion classes.

Q: Do I have to fill out the Forecasting form?

A: Yes. Each student needs to fill out a Forecasting Form and bring it to Forecasting the week after Spring Break. Forms are available from your counselor, the Registrar Ms. Staggs, or online at lsprep.org/forecasting/

Q: Who should I talk to about choosing classes?

A: Your parents, teachers and counselors can discuss your choices with you. Mr. De Ieso, who is the Vice President of Academics, also can help.

Q: What do I need to do if I want to take an AP or Honors class?

A: Each student needs to have a current subject teacher's approval to take an AP class.  Students and their parents also must sign the AP Contract/Agreement on the back of the Forecasting form.

Q: What if, after Forecasting, I change my mind about what I want to take? May I change classes?

A: We know that a student's situation may change after the Forecasting period ends. If this is the case, we suggest you meet with your counselor or teachers as soon as possible to discuss whether or not adjusting your classes next year makes sense. All selections need to be finalized by June 1.

Q: What do I do if I was absent or missed Forecasting?

A: You should see the Registrar, Ms. Staggs, in the Main Office to choose your classes. 

Q: Why is Forecasting such a big deal?

A: We ask you to put a lot of thought into picking your courses because we want to make sure all students have the classes that best fit them.
