Course Selection

It is time for course selection to begin. Over the next several weeks, students will meet with their counselors to select coursework for the 2017-18 school year. Once the course selection process is complete (late in March), students will receive a copy to review with you. Should you have questions, please contact the Counseling Center staff at (916) 395-5090.

No significant changes are intended for the 2017-18 course catalog.

ASVAB Registration

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) will be offered to students on March 7. Targeted primarily at juniors and seniors, the ASVAB is part of a comprehensive career planning program. Not offered consistently in years past at Kennedy, the battery has been widely used at schools across the country. For more information, please click here.

Superintendent Search Community Meeting

A community meeting has been scheduled for 6:00 p.m. in the little theater on Wednesday, March 1 at Kennedy to gather community input on characteristics desired in the next superintendent. The meeting will be hosted by Board of Trustee and Vice President Darrel Woo. I encourage as many as possible to engage in this important process.
