    Hello Current 8th Grade Students and Families

    You can now view your course requests for the 2020-2021 school year, and have an opportunity to request changes. Visit the Lehman High School Counseling Center web-page for directions. Verification Round #1 runs from April 6 to April 10. This is DUE on Thursday!

    Directions on Lehman Site:

    Directions for students:

    1. Log into your student self serve (SSS) portal with your Student ID number.

    There’s a new tab labeled “4 year plan”. Your requested courses will be listed in one of the boxes. They are labeled as Pre-High School, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, and Year 4

    2. These are the courses your counselor entered based on your course request sheet
    3. Make sure you have a total of 7 credits for classes. Be mindful of semester duration classes that only count as half of a class. Look for any course numbers with a 2 or 3 after the decimal (period) indicating the class is multiple periods long (Blocked)
    4. Changes need to be “one for one” to ensure you still have 7 classes.
    5. Confirm your class choices or request changes with the google form below.
    It’s important to know once school begins in August, Counselors will only correct errors or add a required class that is needed for graduation.

    Please make sure to fill out the google form:

    Students may still be waiting to hear if they made it into certain programs, and that will be changed in their schedule as they hear from the programs.

    For questions please email your counselor.

    Thank You,

    Mrs. DeChick and Mrs. Spinder, SMS Counselors
    Mr. Barker, Lehman Lead Counselor
