Course Selection Process
OverviewCourse Selection
In preparation for the 2017-2018 school year, Derry Township School District students currently in grades 8 through 11 will submit their course requests through the Home Access Center (HAC). Teachers will make course recommendations for their students. Between February 22 and February 27, students will submit their course requests electronically through HAC. (NOTE: Course requests can only be added through the student's HAC. Course requests can be viewed, but not added through the parent's HAC.) Students will not be able to submit course requests online after February 27. 
All requests made during the enrollment period will be given equal consideration. Links to the Educational Planning Guide, the course selection forms, the written directions to submit course requests online, and video clips demonstrating the process to submit course requests through HAC are posted below. 
Parents are encouraged to review student selections in HAC prior to the February 27 deadline.
