PEORIA- District 150 high school students are signing up for classes this week with the help of the internet.
The school board voted to implement online class registration for the first time in district history.
Before students would just meet with a counselor to plan out their schedules, but now they can do it on their own.
Students will still meet with counselors briefly, but all of the information students need, including the class syllabus, will be online.
The district is hoping that being able to look it up on the web will encourage more parental involvement, and it will help out in terms of planning.
"It will help us make decisions about how many teachers we need at the high school level for the year, the number of courses we have to offer, but it helps us be many months ahead of the game in getting prepared for the upcoming school year," said District 150 superintendent, Grenita Lathan.
The district says it already had the tools in place, so this new registration system isn't costing a penny. Students can register at home or in the schools computer labs.
