SMN Planning Guide
This Program Planning Guide is designed to give you the information that will help you and your parents to make appropriate selections as you plan a course of study from the wide variety of offerings in the Shawnee Mission School District. Each course is described and specific prerequisites are listed so that you will know whether or not you qualify to take a given subject. Prerequisite means you have successfully completed the entry requirements by either taking a listed course or receiving teacher recommendation because of prior experience in the field of study.
The Shawnee Mission School District offers a comprehensive program of studies for students in grades nine through twelve.
Courses designated as “Enrollment Based” are scheduled if there is sufficient enrollment to provide staffing for the course.
It is important that these decisions be made carefully with personal objectives and future goals in mind. Your teachers and counselors are available to help you in this process.
In addition to describing the courses offered, the guide provides information about graduation requirements, grades, credit, eligibility requirements, and recommended college preparatory programs.
