2018-2019 Scheduling Information
Students and Parents:
The time for adjusting course requests for next school year has passed. Schedules will be determined over the summer and will be distributed in early August. At that time, information will be shared on the process for making requests for schedule changes. Students are reminded that there is a short list of acceptable reasons for seeking a schedule change and that forms for such requests will be available in August. If a course was requested, whether a primary or alternate selection, students will be expected to keep that course.
Counselors will respond to students' concerns in the fall, but there is no need to reach out at this time.
ENLOE STUDENT SERVICES GAINS NATIONAL RECOGNITION!!!
The American School Counselor Association has named Enloe Magnet High School’s Student Services program as a Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP). The RAMP designation, awarded for aligning with the criteria in the ASCA National Model, recognizes schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment.
Since the program’s inception, more than 800 schools have been designated as RAMP recipients. “This year’s RAMP honorees have shown their commitment to students and the school counseling profession,” said Jill Cook, ASCA assistant director. “These schools used data to drive their program development and implementation so all students can achieve success.” Enloe will be honored in July at a recognition ceremony at ASCA’s annual conference for making an exemplary commitment to comprehensive school counseling programs.

If you applied through any other means: Come to Student Services to fill out a midyear request form and provide documentation for the request (for example, a printout of the university email requesting the transcript).
College Visits: College Admission Counselors visit Enloe's Student Services office periodically throughout the year. These visits are for the students only and will take place during the students' lunch times. Please see calendar below for dates and times.

You'll find Enloe's Student Services Department in the East building — the first door on the right as you enter the East.
Why speak with a counselor? We’re here for you. Whatever concern students have — from academic to personal to career — you can come to your counselor and find a place where you can share your concern and get help in addressing it. Students can make an appointment request for any time of the school day. Your counselor will try to meet the request. We do try to make sure we talk with you during times when it least affects your class schedule.
When you come from class to see a counselor, be sure to let your teacher know about your appointment and have the teacher fill out a hall pass so you won’t be marked absent. We are also willing to schedule meetings before or after school. You can reach us through these links:
A-Da: Ms. Greene
De-Ja: Mr. Small
Je-Moq: Ms. Dechant
Mor-Sc: Ms. Saviello
Sch-Z: Ms. Kirkpatrick
Please know that if you feel you’re in an emergency and need to speak with someone, you’re always welcome to come to Student Services. Depending on who is available, you may speak with your counselor or another counselor. Feel free to contact us throughout the school year. Student Services is not just our name — it’s our mission!
