2014-2015 Course Selection Information

2014 – 2015 Pre-Registration Information
The 2014-2015 Course Pre-Registration process takes place in February.  At that time, students will receive materials to assist with course selection for next school year.  Please take the time to review the Program of Studies with your student to make informed decisions about their course selection for next year.  The master schedule is created from the pre-registration choices of our students; therefore, any changes made by students at a later date may negatively impact the overall schedule and availability of courses for all students.  The timeline for this process is outlined below:
February 3 - 10, 2014
Pre-registration materials will be distributed by the counseling department during English classes.  Students should consult their English teacher for scheduled presentations.
February 3 - 28, 2014
Students will independently enter course selections in Naviance.  Counselors and other SHHS staff will be available in the Post Graduate Center to assist students with entering course selections.

Counselors will review and approve student course selections.
The 2014-2015 Program of Studies can be found on the school website (

Thank you Board of Education members
The five members of the Cherry Creek Schools Board of Education are dedicated public servants – unpaid volunteers – who work diligently to ensure that the children of Cherry Creek receive the best education possible – one that prepares them for success in college, the military, the workplace and as contributing members of our democratic society.
January is School Board Recognition Month and the Cherry Creek School District is proud to acknowledge the steadfast commitment and invaluable contributions made by the members of the Board of Education; Karen Fisher, Claudine McDonald, Jim O’Brien, Randy Perlis and David Willman.
“How fortunate we are to have these selfless volunteers leading our district,” said Dr. Harry Bull, superintendent of Cherry Creek Schools. “They give generously of their time to thoroughly study and carefully consider many challenging and complex issues. Every decision they make is based on what is in the best interest of our students.”
Board members are responsible for the academic success of more than 51,000 students, as well as the efficient management of a district with nearly 9,000 full and part-time employees and an annual general fund budget of over $400 million. They spend countless hours studying student achievement and school finance, working with lawmakers and educational experts, meeting with district administrators, teachers, staff members, parents and students, and attending school and district events.
Each board member represents one of the district’s five director districts, but they are elected ‘at-large’ to four-year terms by registered voters via a non-partisan ballot.
Board of Education meetings are generally held at 7 p.m. on the second Monday of the month at one of the Cherry Creek schools.  Contact information for the Board of Education is 720-554-4300 or
