2019-2020 Course Offerings and Descriptions


Choosing the most appropriate high school courses and programs is an important task for Dalton High School
students and their parents. We believe these important choices are best made by students and parents on the
basis of future educational and career goals.
This Registration Planning booklet contains information to assist in these choices. In it you will find:
*DPS Non-Discrimination Notification
*Career Tech Pathway
*A course description for each course available in the Dalton High School curriculum with suggested placement guidelines. These courses align with Georgia Department of Education course descriptions.
It is our hope that students, parents, and teachers will use this information to plan for our registration at Dalton
High School. Students are encouraged to discuss their plans for the next year with their parents and teachers.
Recommendations will be based on previous student performance, supporting standardized test data, and
student desire.
Students will then discuss these teacher recommendations with their parents. If a parent and/or student disagree
with the teacher recommended course(s), the parent will be given information on how to communicate
with their student’s counselor.
The registration process offers each DHS student and parent the opportunity to choose courses for the following
school year. Planning and registration should promote clear understanding of high school requirements
for each student.
The Georgia Student Finance Commission determines HOPE eligibility. More information about the program
can be found at
