Skyline High School Registration Information for Incoming Ninth and Tenth Graders
In September of 2016 The Granite District Board of Education approved a proposal made by The Skyline Network to reconfigure grades in member schools. For Skyline this means that for the 2017-2018 school year we will be welcoming 9th grade students to the school. We are excited about having 9th grade students attend Skyline. A transition team has been created and we have been busy working on adjustments to the building, curriculum changes, and program adjustments to prepare for the incoming 9th grade students. It will be an exciting time and school year.
We have planned two parent meetings to discuss the transition from junior high to high school. These meetings are to share information about programs at Skyline. They will include a time to ask questions and begin to become acquainted with the building for those interested.
- January 10, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. in the Skyline Auditorium is for Parents of Incoming 10th grade students.
- January 11, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. in the Skyline auditorium is for Parents of incoming 9th grade students.
- We encourage you to attend on the planned date based on the grade of your incoming student. The information shared will be specific to the grade level listed. If you can’t make the scheduled evening please feel free to attend either of the scheduled presentations.
The open enrollment period began December 1, 2016. It continues through February 21, 2017. Students that live outside of the Skyline attendance area can apply to attend Skyline High School by completing an Open Enrollment application and returning it to the Skyline High School main office prior to the close of business February 21, 2017.
Applications must include:
- A completed application.
- A $5.00 processing fee.
Upon receipt, applications are date stamped. Applications are approved on a first come, first served basis until all available slots are filled. Historically we have denied very few applications.
