Course Request Packets can be created for any set of courses commonly requested by students. Examples of potential Course Request Packets at a high school are 9th Grd Honors, 10th Grd Regular w/Geometry, or 11th Grd College Prep. If many students require the same set of courses, that set of courses is an appropriate choice to make into a Course Request Packet. Once a packet is created, it can be assigned to a student using Classes New or Mass Change or Add Crs Requests.
