Course Planner Overview
Schools can use Overgrad's course planner to display current offered courses along with graduation requirements, allowing students to plan out the courses they would like to take throughout their high school career.
This article will provide details on how you as a student can add and remove courses to your plan and ensure that you are meeting course graduation requirements, as well as monitor any endorsement or career pathway requirements that may exist.
Accessing the Course Planner
You can access the course planner in two different ways:
From your Dashboard
- Locate your grade level column and the milestone titled "Enter [#] grade courses" and click on that box
- Click on the hyperlinked Complete Milestone text
From the Navigation Bar
- Click on the My Planner dropdown menu and click on Courses
Once a you enter Course Planner you will be taken to this page:
Here, you can add courses
To add any type of course, click on the green “+ Add Course” button
To add a course for a specific subject and grade level, click on the "+Add Course" button in the desired subject and grade level
You will then be directed to the course options available for that subject and year.
Here you will choose courses from your school's unique course catalogue to add to your course plan. The filters applied (if student clicked from a specific grade and subject) will courses that populate.
The course you select will now appear on your Course Plan. You can repeat these steps for additional subject areas and grade levels.
Reviewing Course Requirements
You also have an option to add to your Course Plan and check course requirements through “Course Requirements."
Under “Course Requirements” you can:
- View progress or plan by subject area.
- View requirements unique to each subject area/course.
- Identify progress towards completing requirements.
- View action steps to complete requirements.
- Find courses which meet these requirements.
Clicking "Find Courses" will bring the student to the course catalogue of courses that satisfy that requirement.
- Students will then select their desired courses for a given requirement in a subject area.
*This example above shows a student's 9th-12th grade English course plan.
Finally, you will be able to determine if you are meeting all the requirements for that subject area when your course plan is complete. If you are not, the plan will highlight what changes still need to be made.
*In the example above, this student can see their current plan does meet the English requirements but additional courses are need to meet Math and Driver's Ed requirements.
