Access Career Cruising from the WCSS website. There is a “Quick Link” on the right-hand side of the homepage.

Quick Link to Career Cruising

 Go to “Course Planner” then “Choose My Courses”.

 All compulsory courses are listed by grade.  For example, English is at the top of each column.  Click on it and your options will appear.  Click on the one you are selecting and then click “Add Course”.  Alternately, you can delete a course by clicking on the course then click on “Delete Course”.

 If you are currently in grade 8 and are choosing your grade 9 courses, your grade 8 teachers have made recommendations regarding appropriate level.  When you click on each compulsory course, English for example, the course with the blue star beside it is the one the grade 8 teacher has recommended.  If Applied English has been recommended you can choose Academic but we ask that you carefully consider the grade 8 teacher recommendations. 

 For electives, select a subject area from the drop down menu.  If you are going into grade 12 you can choose a spare by clicking “Study Period”.

 If you get a red circle with an exclamation point in the centre after choosing a course, you do not have the prerequisite and therefore, cannot take the class. You will get a “red circle” if you are changing levels or programs (ie. out of French Immersion). If this is the case and this is a change you would like to make, see your Guidance counselor.

 If you get a blue circle with an exclamation point, there is additional information being provided to you.  Please pay attention to theses pop-ups. 

 Once you have chosen 8 courses plus 2 alternates, click the “Submit” button at the bottom of the page.   

 Print the “Course Verification Sheet” and the Technology Use Agreement and Media Permission Form and obtain parent signatures.  Hand in to the Guidance Office no later than February 23.

  

If you are currently in Grade 12 and are graduating in June, “Not Returning” will automatically be chosen for you.  If you would like to return for a fifth year of high school, please make an appointment with your guidance counselor.
